With its Prairie mod­ern es­thetic, great lay­out and in­ter­est­ing ar­chi­tec­tural de­tails, the Earth­stone town­home is a model that will ap­peal to ev­ery­one.

Part­ners De­vel­op­ment Group just un­veiled this sassy model, an end unit, three-bed­room-plus-den gem that fea­tures almost 1,600 square feet of wellplanne­d liv­ing space on three lev­els.

It’s part of the Ar­rive col­lec­tion, a group­ing of 164 town­homes ar­ranged in pods of eight, 10 and 12 in the popular neigh­bour­hood of Red­stone in Cal­gary’s north­east.

The main floor fea­tures an open and bright foyer along with an over­sized den, which can be con­verted into a fourth bed­room.

The sec­ond level em­braces an open­con­cept liv­ing space with a large great room that ex­tends to a lovely out­door ter­race, ideal for those ro­man­tic din­ners al fresco.

Once the project is com­pleted, the ter­race will over­look a pretty park and tot play­ground, one of many that dot this fam­i­lyfriendly com­mu­nity. And buy­ers will be able to fully en­joy the tran­quil view from this over­sized space that fea­tures glass rail­ings and a per­gola-type roof to keep the el­e­ments at bay.

The com­pact, well-de­signed kitchen knits to­gether all of the es­sen­tials in a very pretty pack­age — from cen­tral is­land to stain­less steel ap­pli­ances — with a large open din­ing room. Fin­ishes are sul­try, yet un­der­stated from the wide-planked lam­i­nate to the gleam­ing stone coun­ter­tops. The back­splash says el­e­gance with a hint of sparkle.

On the third level, two sec­ondary bed­rooms, a four-piece bath­room and a master suite with en­suite and walk-in closet com­plete the plan. The master bed­room’s vaulted ceil­ing cre­ates a very sculp­tural pro­file, while adding di­men­sion and height — a fea­ture that cat­a­pults the room from or­di­nary to in­ter­est­ing.

The home of­fers lots of space and plenty of stor­age. The sec­ond-level laun­dry is ideal — just throw a load in while mak­ing din­ner. Easy. Plus the Earth­stone is an end unit, mean­ing that sim­ply by lo­ca­tion it in­cor­po­rates win­dows on two sides, al­low­ing the light to stream through from end to end and side to side, mak­ing it bright and cheer­ful. And with the main floor den sep­a­rated from the sec­ond-level main liv­ing space, each fam­ily mem­ber can get away — have his or her own space just to read a best­seller or watch Sun­day af­ter­noon foot­ball.

For those with an eye to sus­tain­abil­ity, the home is built to Built Green Gold stan­dards, trans­lat­ing to added sav­ings when it comes to en­ergy costs. Each town­home also fea­tures a at­tached sin­gle car garage and full length drive­way. The show home is priced at $377,000, in­clud­ing GST. Buy­ers can get into the base model for just un­der $350,000.
