The HSC Lifestyles Lottery Home is what you get when you combine Maric magic with a prestigious new community in Headingley.
This abode constitutes 4,917 sq. ft. of heaven in Deer Pointe Park, said Maric Homes sales consultant, Royal LePage Dynamic Real Estate's Dave Heinrichs.
"This is a phenomenal new community," he said. "You're only minutes from the city, yet you feel like you're out in the country. The home was designed to showcase the setting, while providing an interior packed with amenities."
Areas of the home that have been getting the most feedback for jaw-dropping design, Heinrichs said it would be 64 Deer Pointe Drive's great room, followed closely by the master suite.
"Everyone who's visited the home has just loved the great room. With windows that stretch across the back wall from the family room into the kitchen (six in the family room, two over the double sink), the forest and view of the golf course (Breezy Bend) is incredible," he said.
"The home was situated so it would perfectly capture the views out back -- and be at an angle that would optimize the enjoyment of evening sunsets."
The home is finished in rich materials that add texture and warmth to the design. Both the family room and kitchen have materials that create a bright and cosy atmosphere.
"It's bright in here even on dull days, so it was important to choose finishing materials that toned down the brightness a bit," Heinrichs said.
"Finishes such as the beige porcelain tile with raised (off-white) sandstone inserts that frames the ribbon-style fireplace in the family room adds texture and warmth along with the tile above, with its light taupe, with beige and taupe striations. The maple hardwood inlay in the ceiling 12 feet above adds even more warmth."
The adjacent kitchen is a study in practical luxury. A 12-foot by 6-foot granite island is positioned to allow ample aisle width, while providing seating for two to three. The end of the kitchen is an ergonomic dream with a cinnamon-tinted pantry surrounding the stainless-steel fridge and built-in ovens. A walk-in pantry adds even more storage space.
Medium-tinted maple hardwoods add warmth, while an (intentional) absence of cabinetry up high (there are lots below) showcases the large windows along and the view out back -- while letting in maximum amounts of natural light. A spacious dinette area is conveniently placed next to doors to a patio that overlooks the countrified surroundings, while the kitchen is deftly united with the formal dining room by a four-foot-wide doorway.
"The layout makes this a great home for entertaining," he added. "Flow from the dining room through the kitchen, dinette and into the family room is superb, and future owners and their guests will be able to head outside to the patio to chat and enjoy a cold drink."
Downstairs, a walk-out lower level with a rear wall of windows -- and sliding patio doors to a covered patio -- lends itself to entertaining, or hanging out with the family to watch a movie.
"While the rec room is an open-concept design, it's divided by split bars that separate the games area from the media area. The media area is awesome, too. It's surrounded by six huge windows and has a cultured-stone fireplace next to a big TV niche."
As smashing as the media area is in terms of its space, light and style, it's the feature next to it that's generated a ton of buzz, Heinrichs said.
"People just tend to stop and stare at the open-style wine storage room that's surrounded by tempered glass," he said. It's just something you don't see in many homes."
Many people also love the exercise room, he said.
"You can work out, and then head in to the bathroom next door to sit in the steam shower and relax," he said.
"There's also a bedroom wing off the media area with two bedrooms (one with forest view), plus a three-piece bath and laundry room."
The piece de resistance is the master suite and ensuite.
"With its floor to ceiling windows and two-sided fireplace, you get the view and light during the day; at night, you can turn on the fireplace to enjoy its warm glow. Head in to the ensuite, and you can enjoy the fireplace while soaking in the stand-alone soaker tub, which is framed by a cultured-stone wall with pillars either side, and above. A dual floating vanity and tile floor add elegance, while a huge walk-in closet with built-in shelving offers tons of storage space," he said.
Whoever wins the draw for 64 Deer Pointe Drive is going to feel right at home -- very quickly.
"The attention to detail in this home is incredible from the custom touches to the layout to the different angles, rich finishes and ceiling height," Heinrichs said. "It won't take long for the winner to fall in love with the home, and the community."
