Design diversity is a selling point
Riversong offers wide range of styles
Diverse floor plan options and lush natural beauty has seen duplex buyers flock to a community on Cochrane’s south side. Riversong is a scenic development next to the Bow River and masterplanned by Tamani Communities. It offers a wide range of home styles, including duplexes by Trico Homes and Innovations by Jayman. Prices start in the mid $330,000s, including lot and GST.
“In Riversong, we continue to have huge success with the semidetached homes,” says Stephanie Myers, sales manager with Innovations by Jayman.
“We have a significant portfolio of models available to choose from — single or double car garages are currently available.”
Innovations by Jayman’s show homes are its 1,687 square foot Equinox and the Solstice, which is 1,541 square feet. All homes come in three bedrooms and two and a half bathroom orientations, says Myers. Many plans include second floor bonus rooms and flexibility with the location of the laundry room. There are also lower level options with home gyms, media rooms and guest rooms, she adds.
“It is the diversity in the product and the ability to personalize their purchase that seems to resonate with the home buyers in Cochrane,” says Myers.
“The community itself is a huge factor to the home buying decision. The pathways, the architecture, the location within Cochrane ... Tamani has done an incredible job in developing the area.”
Trico’s show homes are its 1,680 square foot Clearwater model and the Waterton, which is 1,717 square feet. Its other models are the 1,361 square foot Beverly and the 1,521 square foot Chelsea.
“It’s very much a lifestyle product,” says Trico sales associate Erin Flasch.
“They’re actually really appealing to people who want the attached garage, want a little bit more for their money and maybe don’t want the maintenance of a singlefamily home.”
While the homes aren’t maintenance free, Flasch says slightly smaller lot sizes mean there’s less to take care of. So far, she has seen a split in purchasers between firsttime buyers and down-sizers.
“It’s that jewel box attitude with the smaller house but still the really nice finishings,” says Flasch.
“That’s the kind of buyer we’re getting.”
Trico has four quick-possession duplexes in Riversong. Two are its Chelsea model and the other two are the Beverly. Innovations by Jayman’s quick possession homes are its 1,541 square foot Solstice, the 1,554 square foot Pulsar and two of its Equinox model.
Along with duplexes, Riversong also offers laned homes and front-attached garage homes. Show homes in the community are open 2 to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and noon to 5 p.m. on weekends and holidays. Other builders in the community Include NuVista Homes, Jayman MasterBuilt and Sabal Homes. The duplex show homes are on River Heights Crescent.
The Equinox by Innovations by Jayman has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms.
