En­joy out­doors in Har­vest Mo­saic within Cranston

Calgary Herald - Calgary Herald New Condos - - New Condos - JOSH SKAPIN

In the sum­mer, noth­ing beats a home that in­cludes a place to en­joy the out­doors.

Some­times, that’s a back or front deck — and other times, it’s a sun-drenched bal­cony. The ben­e­fits of­fered by bal­conies will sure make home­buy­ers take a sec­ond look at the con­dos at Har­vest Mo­saic, a pro­ject by Brook­field Homes in the south­east com­mu­nity of Cranston.

One of the floor plans at the pro­ject is a 1,388-square­foot de­sign called the Olive loft. It’s a sin­gle-level liv­ing space that will be built over a base­ment garage.

This model’s great room steps out to an ex­pan­sive 25-foot, six­inch by eight-foot bal­cony.

The front-fac­ing bal­cony has a pre-fin­ished alu­minum rail­ing with vinyl deck­ing. When the sun comes out, this is where buy­ers can spend all their down­time, whether it be curled up with a novel and a glass of wine, or play­ing host to friends or fam­ily.

The deck isn’t the only part of this plan that takes ad­van­tage of the sun­shine. Big vinyl-clad, en­ergy-ef­fi­cient win­dows in the great room and the ad­ja­cent din­ing area let nat­u­ral light pour across this open-con­cept home.

The great room’s fo­cal point is a stylish, mod­ern fire­place with space for shelves, pho­tos or art­work on ei­ther side.

Across from the great room is a big and airy, gal­ley-style kitchen un­der a nine-foot ceil­ing. It has stain­less-steel ap­pli­ances, a built-in dishwasher and mi­crowave hood fan, lam­i­nate counters and a ce­ramic tile back­splash.

Around the cor­ner from the kitchen is a mas­ter bed­room and two sec­ondary bed­rooms. The mas­ter bed­room has an en­suite that ac­cesses a walk-in closet.

Across the hall from the sec­ondary bed­rooms is a full bath­room and a laun­dry room with a front-load washer and dryer.

Both bath­rooms in the floor plan fea­ture a one-piece, shower-and-tub com­bi­na­tion bor­dered with one row of ce­ramic tiles. The bath­rooms have white plumb­ing fix­tures, an ex­te­rior cen­tred bath fan and lam­i­nate van­i­ties.

Har­vest Mo­saic floor plans range from 720 to 1,450 square feet and come in one-, two- and three-bed­room ori­en­ta­tions.

A larger ver­sion of the Olive model is avail­able at Brook­field’s Mo­saic River­stone de­vel­op­ment in River­stone of Cranston.
