Buyers at home in The Range
Townhomes launched in Cochrane today
Birchwood Properties is trotting out a new townhome project with a farmhouse design in Cochrane today.
The Range consists of 17 fourplex buildings in the community of Heartland, which is masterplanned by Apex Land. These three-storey homes each contain 1,140 square feet.
A 252-square-foot developed basement is offered as an option. Townhomes at The Range are available from the $199,900s.
“They are very unique,” says sales and marketing manager Adele Kerr. Birchwood Properties’ other multi-family projects in the city are in the southeast community of Quarry Park.
“The price point, itself — there’s nothing in terms of a townhome with a separate entrance close to the price we’re offering down there,” she says.
The project was named The Range because it has that “historic farmhouse-type feel that really suits Cochrane,” says Kerr. Each home has its own veranda at the entrance and its own parking stall.
The homes come in three standard plans. All three layouts feature a kitchen and great room on the main floor, but the difference is in how the bedrooms are spread out on the second and third floors.
One plan has two secondary bedrooms on the second floor, with the master bedroom with ensuite on the third floor, while another plan has this reversed. The third plan has two master bedrooms — each a large bed- room with an ensuite — on the second and third floors.
Standard specifications at the complex include plank laminate flooring throughout the main level, and laminate counters in the kitchen and bathrooms.
Specifications also include a full-height tile backsplash under the cabinets, along with a black appliance package featuring an 18.5-cubic-foot fridge with a top-mount freezer. The homes are offered in four designer colour palettes.
“They are well spaced out and we are catering to the first-time homebuyer, for sure,” says Kerr. “At that price point, that’s obviously quite the draw.”
Possession on the homes is expected next fall, with construction slated for the end of this year.
