Ef­fi­cient lay­out and beau­ti­ful space in de­sign

The Bow River bends and turns as it seeks its most ef­fi­cient route to the ocean.

The Bow floor plan in Cranston Place by Cardel Life­styles also turns and bends — first to shel­ter, then to re­veal its ef­fi­cient lay­out and beau­ti­ful space.

The Bow is a two-bed­room, two bath­room plan of­fer­ing 935 square feet of space. It’s one of seven floor plans avail­able in the four­floor condo apart­ment build­ings that make up Cranston Place.

Cranston Place launches sales to­day for its third build­ing, which starts con­struc­tion im­me­di­ately with pos­ses­sions in De­cem­ber 2013.

The com­plex will have three condo apart­ment build­ings with 144 units, as well as 44 town­homes.

Cranston Place is in the south­east com­mu­nity of Cranston, which is un­der devel­op­ment by Brook­field Res­i­den­tial Prop­er­ties Inc.

En­ter­ing The Bow show suite, the in­te­rior’s pri­vacy is pro­tected by a jog in the path in­side. The front foyer in­cludes a spa­cious closet for out­door clothes, as well as a closet hous­ing the stacked laun­dry.

Fur­ther in­side, the main bath­room is to the right with the sec­ond bed­room, straight ahead.

Giv­ing the bed­rooms a more spa­cious feel are the large win­dows, which pro­vide plenty of nat­u­ral light.

To the left, the apart­ment opens up into the open-con­cept kitchen, din­ing area and great room. The kitchen features a square is­land, topped in gran­ite, with an ex­tended ledge for two to dine.

The kitchen has an ef­fi­cient lay­out and pro­vides domestic chefs with a thought­ful de­sign.

The dou­ble, stain­less-steel sink looks out a large win­dow, there is plenty of counter space and the dis­tance be­tween ma­jor ap­pli­ances is within easy reach.

The din­ing area has room for a ta­ble for more for­mal din­ing.

The great room features a cor­ner fire­place with a tile sur­round, and slid­ing glass doors onto the pa­tio (or deck on an up­per level). There is a gen­er­ous feel to the area, with light coming in from glass on two walls and room for couches and chairs.

Along­side the din­ing area, there is room for a tech ta­ble on the way into the master bed­room. It has a large walk­through closet on the way to the master en­suite, which features a large soaker tub and sep­a­rate shower.

The en­suite has a dou­ble van­ity, counter-to-ceil­ing mir­ror and mir­ror-mounted lights to max­i­mize the sense of space.

Flat-panel cab­i­nets through­out the home gives it a mod­ern touch.
