Duplex buyers head to Sunset
A Cochrane community known for its sweeping views of the town’s natural beauty has been a popular destination for duplex buyers, say builders.
Innovations by Jayman and Landmark Homes have seen strong interest from buyers about their duplexes in Sunset Ridge. The Melcor Development Co. community also offers townhomes, along with move-up and semi-estate homes.
“The curb appeal on the semidetached homes is fantastic,” says sales manager Stephanie Myers of Innovations by Jayman. The builder has around eight pre-sale opportunities, as well as three under construction that are also available.
Landmark’s homes in Sunset Ridge are sold out. Marketing co-ordinator Stuart Wen called reception of the homes “tremendous,” adding they were a hit with young families, firsttime home buyers and downsizers.
The same could be said for Innovations by Jayman, says Myers.
“This community is very lifestyle-driven and as a result, we are seeing an eclectic buyer segment,” she says.
“The proximity to the mountains, and the serenity and security of small-town living, appeals to singles, professional couples and to downsizers. We are even seeing young families drawn to the community with the announcement of the new school.”
Innovations by Jayman’s model is a new 1,753-squarefoot plan called Horizon. But it’s the 1,540-square-foot Solstice plan that leads the way in sales, says Myers. The model has three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms and a second-floor bonus room. “It is beautifully laid out to maximize the square footage available,” says Myers. These homes are available from the low $320,000s, including GST.
“The views throughout the community are stunning,” she says.
“The bulk of the remaining inventory allows for south or west rear yards. We have a couple of walkout opportunities as well.”
Show homes are located on Sunrise View. They’re open 2 to 8 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays, and noon to 5 p.m. on weekends and holidays.
Move-up homes in the community are by Excel Homes and Homes by Avi, while Landmark Homes and Jayman MasterBuilt offer the semi-estate options.
