FAM­ILY FRIENDLY

The Car­bon ZLL can adapt

Calgary Herald - - NEW HOMES - MARTY HOPE

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.
