Du­plex buy­ers head to Sun­set

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

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.
