Peaked rooflines cre­ate char­ac­ter

Calgary Herald - Calgary Herald New Condos - - New Condos - CLAIRE YOUNG

With their tall, peaked rooflines, the bed­rooms in Ar­rive at Red­stone of­fer char­ac­ter. And what bet­ter place to peace­fully con­tem­plate peaked ceil­ings and the play of sun­light across tall walls than from the com­fort of bed?

Ar­rive at Red­stone is a collection of 164 units of town­homes by Part­ners De­vel­op­ment Group that stand sen­tinel on one side of Red­stone, with a row of homes over­look­ing a pond.

The two show homes now open are an end unit and an in­ner unit of the Winds­tone floor plan, one of three plans that also in­clude the Earth­stone and Water­stone con­fig­u­ra­tions with a range in size from 1,173 to 1,590 square feet.

The end unit Winds­tone show home pre­sents a twobed­room lay­out with a to­tal of 1,348 square feet.

Up­stairs, the mas­ter bed­room en­joys the view of a peaked ceil­ing with a match­ing win­dow. The room of­fers two large clos­ets and an en­suite.

The mas­ter en­suite holds a tub and shower com­bi­na­tion with nat­u­ral light from a nar­row, hor­i­zon­tal win­dow up high on the wall.

The quartz banjo-style coun­ter­top is com­ple­mented by a large tile sur­round with a nat­u­ral stri­ated pat­tern. Dark cab­i­netry of­fers stor­age space un­der the sink.

Along the hall­way to­ward the back of the house, a stacked laun­dry closet is to the right, while the main bath­room, with a large shower with a rain head, is to the left.

The bed­room at the back of the home is only slightly smaller than the mas­ter bed­room and has a lofty slanted ceil­ing. It fea­tures a walkin closet.

While the main liv­ing floor of­fers an open-con­cept lay­out, the kitchen pro­vides enough sep­a­ra­tion be­tween the din­ing nook and the liv­ing room that these spa­ces feel quite their own.

The din­ing nook is bright, with slid­ing glass doors out onto a bal­cony.

The kitchen is an el­e­gant, long space, with a cen­tral is­land run­ning length­wise through the cen­tre of the liv­ing space.

The white quartz coun­ter­top on the is­land is ex­tended at both ends with room for a pair of bar stools each.

Dark flat-panel cab­i­netry ex­tends to the ceil­ing for max­i­mum stor­age, along with a tall pantry at one end.

The ground level of­fers space for a den next to the front en­trance and closet.

There is room for a half-bath­room and a sin­gle-car garage as well.

The Ar­rive town­homes are cer­ti­fied by the Built Green pro­gram, to stan­dard­ized sus­tain­able build­ing prac­tices.

The homes have an En­erGuide Rat­ing of 80-plus points and Goldlevel Built Green. The homes in­clude var­i­ous en­ergy-sav­ing items, in­clud­ing heat-re­cov­ery ven­ti­la­tors for clean air qual­ity, 96 per cent high-ef­fi­ciency fur­naces and elec­tric wa­ter heaters, En­er­gyS­tar ap­pli­ances, large and bright low-E win­dows, and wa­ter-saver faucets and toi­lets.

Even with the open-con­cept lay­out on the main floor, the great room feels like its own space in the Winds­tone end unit show home at Ar­rive at Red­stone.
