As rare as it is in a world that often seems to disappoint, its always good to feel like you got more than you expected.
Thats the feeling you get when you see all the amazing features packed into KDR Homes show home at 233 Ken Oblik Dr. in Prairie Pointe, says Jennifer Gulay of Royal LePage Prime Real Estate, sales representative for the brand-new, 1,787 square-foot two-storey design.
The value that this home delivers cant be beat, she says. For $659,900, you get a beautifully designed custom home that offers a great layout and a modern yet timeless design.
Gulay says one of the homes biggest attractions during the 2021 Fall Parade of Homes was an unexpected, but much-appreciated space.
KDRs design team put a spice kitchen in a perfect spot, between the mudroom and kitchen, she explains. It comes with a range, microwave and sink, plus lots of cabinet and counter space. Its a great area to prep food when youre entertaining. You can also bring groceries straight into the kitchen from the garage.
The spice kitchen then opens seamlessly onto a light-filled kitchen that offers a deft blend of space, style, and function.
Theres plenty of room to move in and around the nine-foot island, two-tone cabinetry that beautifully balances modern and traditional tones and lots of storage space.
Warm laminate plank flooring offsets all the natural light, while maple vertical lift upper cabinets contrast with a white hexagonal tile backsplash and off-white quartz countertops, notes Gulay. A black faucet and black cabinet pulls add more contrast, while a pantry with barn door and pantry tower provide loads of storage space.
Next comes the family room, which is subtly separated from the kitchen by a spacious dining area with patio door behind it that leads out to a big backyard deck.
With its 18-foot ceiling, glass-filled rear wall and elegant entertainment unit, it finishes off the main living area with a welcome dash of understated wow factor.
I just love how the stairs were carved into the side wall it looks amazing and allows the upper level to open onto the family room below, she says. The huge windows on the rear wall let in tons of natural light, and the entertainment unit, with its tiled feature wall, electric fireplace and built-in TV niche, is gorgeous.
She adds that the fabulous design features just keep coming upstairs.
It starts off with a loft area that can be used as a sitting area or study area. It really adds function by opening things up. During the Parade of Homes, it was a feature families said they loved.
A logical, family-friendly layout was also a hit, says Gulay.
The two kids bedrooms which come with huge windows and double closets with custom shelving were placed to the left in their own wing along with a four-piece bath. A wing to the right holds a big laundry room, and an amazing primary bedroom.
Set well away from the kids bedrooms, the primary bedroom is not only private, but posh.
A huge window on its rear wall lets in tons of daylight, theres plenty of space for a king-sized bed, end tables, a dresser and a comfy reading chair and all kinds of style.
Theres a beautiful tray ceiling above and both the ensuite and walk-in closet can be closed off by barn doors, she says. And the ensuite is stunning with its heated tile floor, walk-in shower, soaker tub, maple vanity with dual sinks and a gorgeous tile wall that wraps around the tub and shower.
Add in a side entrance thats perfect for multi-generational families and a big, open-concept lower level, and you have a luxurious yet practical family home that doesnt miss a trick.
Not a detail has been missed in the design of this home, says Gulay. It really is the definition of affordable, livable luxury.
