For peo­ple in the mar­ket for a du­plex, two dis­tinctly de­signed show homes by a sea­soned Cal­gary builder open in Auburn Bay to­day.

Brook­field Homes is un­veil­ing two of its Side-by-Side mod­els — the Lin­den and the Cy­press — at 362 Auburn Bay Ave. S.E.

“The two show homes pro­vide a spec­tac­u­lar com­bi­na­tion of prac­ti­cal­ity, open-planned liv­ing and af­ford­abil­ity,” says sales man­ager Ryan Moon.

Both the Lin­den and the Cy­press are 1,404-square-foot floor plans with three bed­rooms and two-and-a half bath­rooms.

In to­tal, six Side-by-Side mod­els are of­fered in Auburn Bay. They range from 1,116 to 1,440 square feet and are avail­able from the low $300,000s be­fore tax.

They in­clude the com­pany’s new­est model, the Wil­low, which ranges from 1,259 to 1,270 square feet. The two show homes are de­signed by Cal­gary firm Rochelle Cote In­te­rior De­sign Corp.

For the Cy­press, the look and feel is a mod­ern, dra­matic ex­pres­sion, with dark fab­rics and high-gloss wall­pa­per, says owner Rochelle Cote.

The Lin­den’s look and feel is in­spired by fam­ily liv­ing.

“We wanted to high­light the fam­ily feel of the com­mu­nity in the de­sign con­cept,” says Cote.

“By us­ing bold, over-scaled pat­terns, rus­tic fin­ishes, and warm grey and taupe tones through the home, we were able to give it a more lay­ered, rus­tic am­bi­ence.” Auburn Bay is a lake com­mu­nity mas­ter-planned by Brook­field Res­i­den­tial.

It was a fi­nal­ist for Com­mu­nity of the Year at this year’s Cal­gary Re­gion SAM (Sales and Mar­ket­ing) Awards.

In Auburn Bay, Brook­field also of­fers sin­gle-fam­ily homes, as well as town­homes that in­clude a new project called Muskoka.

“We want fu­ture home­buy­ers to ex­pe­ri­ence the ful­some of­fer­ings of Auburn Bay, in­clud­ing the nearby park and wet pond and the Se­ton com­mer­cial dis­trict, which re­cently be­came home to re­tail­ers in­clud­ing TD Bank, Petro-Canada, Bank of Mon­treal and Shop­pers Drug Mart,” says Moon.

Pho­tos: Brook­field Homes

The kitchen in the Cy­press in­cludes black ap­pli­ances and an is­land that can seat two peo­ple.
