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.
