JAY­MAN: Com­mu­nity’s at­mos­phere at­trac­tive

Calgary Herald - Calgary Herald New Condos - - New Con­dos - HOURS:

Along with town­homes, Jay­man also builds du­plexes in Sun­set Ridge. The Jay­man MasterBuil­t builds semi-es­tate homes in the com­mu­nity, as well.

The Wil­sons bought a three­bed­room unit at the town­home project and moved in last Fe­bru­ary af­ter sell­ing their home in Can­more. They bought an end unit, “so we have more win­dows on the north side,” adds Su­san.

Sun­set Ridge is a com­mu­nity by Mel­cor Devel­op­ments fea­tur­ing a cen­tral park, path­ways, lin­ear parks and a 2.4-hectare fresh­wa­ter pond off High­way 22.

The Wil­sons liked Cochrane from the get-go. It’s close enough for Michael to com­mute to his job in Can­more and of­fers the at­mos­phere they were look­ing for, says Su­san, adding, “Cal­gary is just too big for me.

“Now that I’ve lived in smaller towns such as Can­more, I re­ally like the small town feel. It’s great,” adds Su­san, who ran a day home in Can­more and does the same in Cochrane. “We like to get out in the back coun­try and hike. This is the happy medium.”

Many buy­ers at the de­vel­op­ment have pointed out Sun­set Ridge as an ideal land­ing spot, says My­ers.

“Most have sought out the lo­ca­tion within Cochrane as a pre­req­ui­site to their pur­chase,” My­ers adds. “In ad­di­tion to the stun­ning views avail­able through­out the com­mu­nity, Sun­set Ridge pro­vides easy ac­cess to shop­ping, pro­fes­sional ser­vices and to schools.”

Con­struc­tion on a kinder­garten to Grade 8 school is set to start late this sum­mer.

Jay­man’s de­vel­op­ment in­cludes 41 town­homes, with prices start­ing from $304,900, in­clud­ing tax. At press time, the com­plex was 80 per cent sold. Th­ese are two­s­torey homes with an op­tional base­ment. They range from 1,250 to 1,295 square feet and come in two- and three-bed­room ori­en­ta­tions. Th­ese units fea­ture open­con­cept de­signs and plenty of stor­age space.

A sales cen­tre for the project and a show suite are lo­cated at 24 Sun­set Rd.

“As soon as I walked in the show home, I just knew it. It was like I jumped in­side and said, ‘Yeah, this is it!’” says Su­san. “I just thought, this is ex­actly what we’re look­ing for and the lay­out and ev­ery­thing was re­ally nice.”

The project has a num­ber of quick-pos­ses­sion homes now avail­able, in­clud­ing two of the 1,250-square-foot Glacier plan and two more of Wapta, which is 1,265 square feet. There’s also the 1,291-square-foot Peyto and two vari­a­tions of the Crow­foot floor plan.

“We have an in­cred­i­bly di­verse group pur­chas­ing in this com­mu­nity, from snow­birds to first-time buy­ers,” says My­ers.
