2015 Show Home at The Lakes - Now Closed!
Nestled among the spruce and pines, this Classic Craftsman Built Green home with large front porch is the perfect fit for the surrounding environment. The shed roof at the side of the home allows for the 13-20’ soaring ceiling in the great room area to accommodate the stairs leading to the one-half story. Light Hardie siding with fir wood detail give this home an inviting character.
Contemporary interior design best describes this home. The 20’ ceiling in the great room adds a feel of openness while the ceiling drop-down features in the kitchen and dining areas reinforce the contemporary look. Light coloured quartz countertops with the coffee bean stained cabinets result in a beautiful contrast. Built-in niches and bookcases in the stair area, ceiling treatment in the flex room, and contemporary drywall window returns make this home inviting and appealing. The interior paint and decorating scheme promotes a “light and airy” feel with large and small windows placed strategically to allow natural light.
Certified under the Built Green (Platinum level) and EnergyStar for New Homes programs, this home has a tested Energuide Rating of 86. Advanced envelope sealing and upgraded insulation include spray foam around windows, doors and rim joist areas, R60 attic insulation, R12 rigid insulation in window and door headers, foam gasketed electrical outlets and recessed light seal boxes. Add the LED recessed lighting throughout, the 96% efficient furnace with heat pump, Heat Recovery Ventilator and built-in kitchen Recycling Centre. The result is a highly comfortable home which performs to a high level that will deliver energy savings over its life cycle.
The floor plan is versatile and designed to meet the needs of empty nesters to large families and everything in between. The main floor is designed for social gathering with a large island adjacent to the main living area. Direct entry from the garage through the laundry room to the kitchen adds to the practicality of the design. The master bedroom and ensuite location enable privacy away from the main living area. The one-half storey above is a comfortable sleeping area for children or visitors while the full basement adds two more bedrooms and a large area for family gatherings with room for a pool table and media area.
