When searching for a new home, there’s no settling – you want something that will make you stop and stare. Maybe it’s gorgeous brick entrance pillars that catch your eye, or you’re sold once you walk into the grand, open concept main floor. Whatever it may be, it’s nice to find a home with a “special something” that makes it feel just right for you.
When designing our home models, we keep this in mind. We want our floor plans to be functional, yet unique, to meet both your needs and desires! Step inside two of our newest models, the Aralytt and the Declan, and see how these beautiful laned homes can make you say, “That’s the one!”
From the outside, the 2,196 square foot Aralytt boasts sleek modern angles and colours, yet has an overall look of vintage charm. This look is complete with a full front veranda, the perfect place to enjoy a delightful morning coffee.
Inside, this charm is met with grandeur in the expansive, open concept main floor. The entrance opens into a flexible space, to be used for whatever unique need you may have. This flex room continues further to become a great room, separated only by a comforting two-way gas fireplace.
Still openly connected, you’ll find the kitchen on the other side of the main floor. It features a centre island, and a walk-through pantry which leads through to a mudroom area on the other side. This area includes more room for storage, has an attached powder room, and a door to the backyard.
On the other side of the kitchen, there’s a passageway into a private closed-off dining nook. The coffered ceiling adds dimension, and with windows on the two exterior walls, you can enjoy meals in this nook while basking in natural light.
The layout of the Aralytt’s second floor is pleasingly uncommon, as it feels just as open as the first floor. You’ll first step into a “bonus room” that's not enclosed but highlighted by a chic tray ceiling. There are so many possibilities with this extra space, whether you include a relaxing seating arrangement or a desk for a home office, it’s there to be adapted to your needs.
Two sizeable bedrooms sit side by side toward the front of the home. The laundry room and main bath offer their convenience next down the hall. Finally, to the homeowner’s delight, the gracious owner’s suite makes up the rest of the upper floor.
Imagine the pleasantness of waking up in your suite and stepping through a passageway into an elegant ensuite bath. Featuring a double vanity, a water closet, and both a stand-up shower and a free-standing tub, this ensuite has everything you could want. Of course, we wouldn’t forget about a walk-in closet – you’ll find one attached to the ensuite, with plenty of storage space.
If you like a home that looks neat and polished, the poised Declan model is a superb choice. Entering off the lovely front porch, you’ll be met with wide, airy spaces; the Declan’s 1,959 square feet of living space is arranged to be functional and unrestricted.
You’ll notice indications of the functional design immediately, as the entryway features a spacious closet and a bench, making it easy to unload after a long day. Continuing down the hallway will bring you to the kitchen, and there’s a powder room along the way.
The kitchen is packed with storage, with a walk-in pantry, plenty of cabinet space, and an island with a flush eating bar. The kitchen expands into a dining area, and if you continue back toward the front of the home, it opens to a large great room.
Also just off the dining nook is a passage into a mudroom with some exceptional features. A bench, a broom closet, and even another closet for more storage space create a beneficial rear entryway.
Upstairs, the living arrangements are widespread, giving each family member a little extra privacy. To one side, there are two bedrooms with good closet space, that are separated by a convenient laundry room. The main bath is located in a central area, dividing the two sides of the upper floor. The entire opposite side of this floor is dedicated to – you guessed it – the fabulous owner’s suite.
This owner’s suite is roomy on its own, but it doesn’t end there. Walk through the passageway that leads into a large ensuite bath with a double vanity, a soaker tub and standing shower, and a water closet. This is lavish enough to already feel like a spa, but continuing through another passageway, you’ll likely be awestruck by the huge walk-in closet. Storage shelving wraps the walls, interrupted only by windows overlooking the backyard. Imagine the beauty of choosing an outfit in a room flooded with natural light!
You know yourself and your family best, which means you’ll know when a home is right for you. If either of these home models caught your attention, why hesitate? Follow your instinct and inquire about the Aralytt or the Declan; it’s easy!
