Townhomes priced to please
Fee simple project provides buyers with flexibility
A townhome project with no condo fees is on its way to a new community in southeast Calgary.
Homes by Avi launches sales at Legacy Street Towns in the community of Legacy today.
This development follows a number of fee simple townhome complexes by the builder, including sites in Mahogany and EvansRidge in Calgary and Sunset Ridge in Cochrane.
“We’ve done this in a lot of areas because the land use has allowed it and it has been what people have wanted,” says sales manager Karl Bursnell.
“This means when there’s a buyer buying a property, they don’t have to factor in that extra expense in when looking for getting their mortgage approval.”
Buyers also own the lot their home is on, making it similar to buying a single-family home, he adds.
“The buyer really enjoys the flexibility of having a singlefamily home but at a great price point,” Bursnell says. The project is comprised of 55 units, with prices starting in the mid$300,000s.
These units range from 1,280 to 1,386 square feet and are offered in four floor plans. One of the plans is designed as an end unit.
“We are expecting them to be sought-after by people that are starting, young couples, but also people that are downsizing and just wanting to have a place to stay away from condo fees,” says Bursnell.
All units come with a three bedroom second floor orientation, while some are available with two master bedrooms and a loft.
Depending on the floor plan, kitchens in these homes have either a central, U-shaped or Lshaped design. The units come with a rear garage, rear deck and private, fenced yard.
“We are going to have quality finishing to start with, so that’s going to include laminate flooring, granite countertops or quartz, stainless steel appliances and then you have the option to choose from one of three colour palettes, within those as well,” says Bursnell. The appeal of the exterior of these homes is another important detail, he adds.
“They have strong architectural detailing in Legacy and we are obviously carrying that across on these street towns.” This means use of stone built-in window boxes and many of the units have a front porch.
Legacy is a community masterplanned by WestCreek Developments. The community was a finalist in the categories Community of the Year-City of Calgary and New Community of the Year at this year’s Calgary Region SAM (Sales and Marketing) Awards.
The Legacy Street Towns by Homes by Avi are offered in four floor plans with prices starting in the mid-$300,000s.
