Syn­tax a let­ter-per­fect choice for buy­ers

Sa­balS­mart’s charmer packs in many fea­tures

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

What writer-edi­tor type could re­sist vis­it­ing a home named Syn­tax? Not this one! I’ve al­ways loved think­ing about the struc­ture of sen­tences, how words rub­bing up against each other bring mean­ing through their con­nec­tions.

This con­nec­tiv­ity is car­ried through the Syn­tax show home by Sa­bal Homes, from its base­ment to its sec­ond floor. It fol­lows rules of ex­cel­lent de­sign, just as a well­crafted sen­tence does.

It is one of two du­plex show homes — the other is the Sonik — on dis­play in Ma­hogany, a mas­ter­planned com­mu­nity by Hopewell.

The Syn­tax is one of three mod­els, which also in­clude the Serif, in the Sa­balS­mart line of at­tached and laned homes.

The Syn­tax is a 1,293-square-foot home that is im­me­di­ately wel­com­ing. Cen­tral to this is a stylish kitchen, with open beams and wood de­tails on the ceil­ing.

The wood above ties into the warmth of the medium-tone hard­wood floor un­der­foot.

The kitchen is bright with small cir­cu­lar white tile back­splash that stretches from the light grey quartz coun­ter­top to the ceil­ing.

Lo­ca­tion of the show home.

White cab­i­netry with flat pan­els and long, slen­der stain­less steel hard­ware pro­vides a clean look.

A sin­gle cab­i­net with open shelves pro­vides a show­case for spe­cial dishes.

The cen­tral is­land fea­tures wa­ter­fall treat­ment on both sides. It of­fers an ex­tended ledge for eat­ing, and a wide, clear space for work­ing.

The long, deep win­dow above the un­der­mount sink pro­vides plenty of nat­u­ral light to the room.

From the kitchen, a pas­sage leads to the mud room and back door, as well as to a half-bath­room. The din­ing area is spa­cious, and serves to pro­vide a sep­a­ra­tion be- tween the kitchen at the back of the home and the great room at the front.

The up­per floor of the Syn­tax of­fers three dif­fer­ent con­fig­u­ra­tions to choose from, in­clud­ing a three-bed­room lay­out with one main bath­room, a three-bed­room with a mas­ter re­treat with en­suite, or dual mas­ter re­treats.

The show home pre­sents the mid­dle op­tion.

Up­stairs, two sec­ondary bed­rooms are found at the back of the house. With large win­dows, these are bright rooms, and they both also have a good amount of stor­age space in their clos­ets. They share the main bath­room, which has a sin­gle van­ity and tub with shower.

The mas­ter bed­room, also bright, has a large win­dow and is lo­cated at the front of the home. Upon en­ter­ing this room, the spa­cious walk-in closet is to the im­me­di­ate left. The en­suite, with a sin­gle-sink van­ity, has a tub and shower com­bi­na­tion.

With a win­dow at one end of the room, there is am­ple nat­u­ral light.

The base­ment of the Syn­tax show home is fin­ished, and in­cludes a bright and spa­cious rec room, com­plete with a small play stage for chil­dren, along with the fam­ily area for watch­ing tele­vi­sion and movies. There is a sep­a­rate bed­room and a full bath­room, which also houses a stacked laun­dry pair.

The rec room of the Syn­tax show home has a high ceil­ing and large win­dows and of­fers plenty of space for a fam­ily to spread out and re­lax.

A back­splash of small cir­cu­lar white tiles is re­peated on the walls of the kitchen in the Syn­tax A show home by Sa­bal Homes, mak­ing the room ap­pear bright and clean.
