The Carbon ZLL can adapt
With its Carbon ZLL model, Cedarglen Homes has taken customization to a whole new level — one that brings into play future lifestyle changes as they pertain to family.
Changes can nearly totally transform this 2,031-square-foot, twostorey home to make it as personal as you like, says Ryan Christensen, Cedarglen’s area sales manager in Anthem United’s Belmont community in southwest Calgary.
“The biggest selling point of the Carbon is the opportunity to modify the plan in unique ways to make each interior specific to the buyer’s expectations,” he says.
So, from the basic three-bedroom, 21/2-bath model, Cedarglen’s design team went to work erasing and redrawing partitions to come up with what is now a five-bedroom home — including a bedroom and full bath on the main floor — suitable for families who want to grow in place.
“A large demographic in Calgary have their aging parents living with them, and the opportunity to have a bedroom and full bath on the main floor has made the Carbon a huge seller in Belmont,” says Christensen.
It’s the result of this vision and the development of customization modules for the family future that has made the Carbon ZLL so popular, racking up six sales since openinginMay.
Other modifications to the basic floor plan include a fourth bedroom on upper floor, relocating the bonus room from its familiar spot over the front-drive garage to the middle of the second storey, adding a side entrance for use with an income property, and changes to the look of the ensuite and already spacious kitchen. As well, that main-floor bedroom could also be utilized as a home office.
Beyond the customization opportunities, the Carbon is a bright home with plenty of window space — and space in general for the whole family to enjoy.
“People love the open feeling of the show home, and most ask to replicate much of what was done to the main floor in order to attain that airy concept — and certain modernity that comes with an open-concept plan that make any given space appear larger,” says Christensen.
So given all the redesign and customization, who is buying this home?
“The bulk of the demographic consists of young families, with two buyers choosing the Carbon specifically for the main-floor bedroom option as future lodging for their parents,” he adds.
The Carbon ZLL is shown with laminate flooring through the main living areas, tile floors in bathrooms, tile backsplashes, loads of kitchen cabinetry, granite countertops and vanities, stainless steel appliances, great room fireplace with raised hearth, and upper-floor laundry.
The price of the basic Carbon model starts at $470,000. The show home, as is, is between $530,000 and $550,000 depending on size and location of lot.
