Find peace of mind in Boule­vard 16

A well-or­ga­nized home saves time and pro­vides peace of mind.

But de­spite the best in­ten­tions of its oc­cu­pants, it’s dif­fi­cult for ev­ery­thing to be in place with­out a home de­sign that sup­ports this ob­jec­tive.

In the kitchen, the abil­ity to find cook­ing tools and in­gre­di­ents quickly — with­out bat­tling clut­ter — can be the dif­fer­ence be­tween cook­ing be­ing a joy or a chore.

The de­sign of the Boule­vard 16 fo­cuses on mak­ing life sim­pler. This 1,394-square-foot town­house is pre­sented as a show home at the north­east Cal­gary de­vel­op­ment Red­stone Park by Street­side De­vel­op­ments.

It has three storeys, with a tan­dem two-car garage on the ground level.

The kitchen is a func­tional U-shaped de­sign, putting ev­ery cabi­net, drawer, or ap­pli­ance a quick pivot away.

Ev­ery pot, pan, and piece of cook­ware has a home, with a gen­er­ous vol­ume of well-sized cabi­nets thought­fully dis­persed across the cook­ing space. A spa­cious walk-in cor­ner pantry fur­ther sup­ports its stor­age abil­i­ties.

The kitchen also fea­tures a stylish back­splash, pen­dant light­ing, stain­less steel ap­pli­ances, in­clud­ing an over-the-range mi­crowave, and a sink be­neath a large rear-fac­ing win­dow.

Peo­ple who en­joy en­ter­tain­ing will see op­por­tu­ni­ties with the

The model: The Boule­vard 16 is a three-bed­room town­house with an at­tached garage.

Builder: Street­side De­vel­op­ments.

De­vel­op­ment: Red­stone Park.

Area: Red­stone is a com­mu­nity in north­east Cal­gary.

Di­rec­tions: The show home is lo­cated at 217 Red­stone Blvd. N.E. To get there, take Metis Trail to 128th Ave., turn left on Red­stone Street, right on Red­stone Drive, and left on Red­stone Boule­vard.

kitchen’s eat­ing bar back­ing on to the cen­trally lo­cated din­ing area. For large gath­er­ings, the eat­ing bar pro­vides over­flow seat­ing, lo­cated close enough so no­body feels left out of the con­ver­sa­tion.

The wall in the din­ing area has a win­dow and is boxed out. This not only el­e­vates the level of ar­chi­tec­tural in­ter­est of this space, but sets up an ideal spot for an ac­cent wall — which the builder demon­strates in this show home.

The front-fac­ing great room fills with sun­shine. Large win­dows on its two out­ward walls and a glass in­sert in the door that steps out to its bal­cony all con­trib­ute to a pleas­ing level of nat­u­ral light.

Mea­sur­ing six foot seven inches by 16 foot two inches, this bal­cony is the ideal perch for a morn­ing cup of cof­fee in the fresh air.

There are three bed­rooms on the sec­ond level, two of which fea­ture a walk-in closet.

The mas­ter bed­room, which boasts mul­ti­ple win­dows, is 11 feet two inches by 10 feet and has an en­suite, as well.

The sec­ondary bed­rooms flank a laun­dry area with a washer and dryer, mak­ing it con­ve­nient for the bed­room’s oc­cu­pants to un­load and put clean clothes away.

This town­house is one of two mod­els at Red­stone Park. The other is the two-bed­room 1,153-square-foot Av­enue 14.

Red­stone Park is lo­cated in the com­mu­nity of Red­stone, lo­cated off Metis Trail, which is mas­ter-planned by Qual­ico Com­mu­ni­ties. Red­stone is high­lighted by long stretches of path­ways and sev­eral invit­ing parks, in­clud­ing a park with out­door fit­ness equip­ment for adults.

Res­i­dents of Red­stone are less than a 10-minute drive to Cross­iron Mills, and an even shorter dis­tance to Stoney Trail.
