Hunter House: guest cen­tral

Street­Side’s stacked bun­ga­lows fea­ture stylish out­door spa­ces

Calgary Herald New Condos - - New Condos - JOSH SKAPIN

Pull up a seat at the ta­ble for a grilled steak or stretch out with a novel in a pa­tio chair — with two spa­cious ter­races, there’s room for both.

Hunter House is a project by award-win­ning builder Street­Side De­vel­op­ments with town­homes and stacked bun­ga­lows fea­tur­ing a durable HardiePlank ex­te­rior.

The com­plex is in the south­west com­mu­nity of Sil­ver­ado.

Its C2 model has two mar­quee spots for out­door liv­ing. For some people, space for two chairs and a small ta­ble works just fine.

But for hav­ing guests over, it’s nice to have some el­bow room.

With two ter­races, one be­ing a tape mea­sure-stretch­ing 238 square feet — that’s no con­cern. The larger of the two ter­races is ac­cessed through glass doors off the din­ing area. A 170-square-foot ter­race is off the back cor­ner of the home.

“The up­per stacked bun­ga­lows were specif­i­cally de­signed for the dis­cern­ing buyer who loves to en­ter­tain year-round but will be drawn to the prospect of sum­mer en­ter­tain­ing on two large decks,” says Kim Orr of Street­Side.

“The larger deck is per­fect for re­lax­ing with friends while the smaller deck off the kitchen is per­fect for bar­be­cu­ing. Both are cov­ered and of­fer views of the sur­round­ing coun­try­side.”

In to­tal, this unit is 1,670-square-feet with two bed­rooms, an of­fice, two bath­rooms and an at­tached two-car garage. The garage is on the ground level next to a stor­age space. From there, a small set of stairs reach the main level.

Hav­ing all the ne­ces­si­ties on one level is a con­ve­nient plan for a num­ber of buy­ers, in­clud­ing re­tirees look­ing to down­size. At the top of the stairs, there’s a me­chan­i­cal room and stor­age area on one side and a home of­fice on the other. If a home of­fice doesn’t make sense, it works as a hobby or sewing room, too. From there, a hall­way leads to an open-con­cept kitchen, great room and din­ing area. On one side of the hall­way, there’s a linen closet and ac­cess to one of the home’s two bed­rooms. There’s a full bath­room and laun­dry room on the other side. The sec­ondary bed­room is a great place for out-of-town guests. It in­cludes a square-shaped walk-in closet.

The kitchen is a U-shape de­sign and has an ex­tended eat­ing bar with seat­ing for four people. There are quartz counters, full-height cab­i­nets with soft-close draw­ers and a glass back­splash.

The kitchen also boasts stain­lesssteel ap­pli­ances with a gas range and chim­ney-style hood fan. Ad­ja­cent to the kitchen, the great room has an op­tional fire­place flanked by built-in shelv­ing.

On the back end of the home, the mas­ter bed­room links to the en­suite by an ex­pan­sive walk-through closet. The home fea­tures soar­ing 10-foot ceil­ings through­out and is of­fered in one of three de­signer pal­ettes.
