Volume and value in Prairie Pointe

Roomy two-storey features fabulous floor plan

As rare as it is, it’s always a good feeling when you purchase a big-ticket item and feel like you got great value for your hard-earned dollar.

That’s the approach Discovery Homes’ design team took when they designed the latest iteration of the Fairview A, their brand-new show home at 341 Ken Oblik Dr. in Prairie Pointe.

“The idea behind this refreshed plan was to deliver great value,” says Reid Boles of RE/MAX One Group, the sales representative for the 2,242 square-foot, two-storey design. “It feels like a million dollar home even though it comes in somewhere between $750,000 and $775,000, depending on the options that you choose. Discovery’s design team did a really nice job on it.”

He says that million-dollar feel comes from the way a rich, tasteful assortment of finishes mesh seamlessly with a fabulous floor plan.

The one thing that the team did well was create a flexible floor plan that can be seamlessly tailored to a family’s needs.

That high level of flexibility starts in the Fairview’s foyer, says Boles.

“It was designed with a multi-generational family in mind,” he says. “It starts off with a separate sitting area to the left of the foyer and has a hallway to the right that holds a flex space that could be used as a bedroom or office. The area is finished off by a four-piece bath that’s just steps away.”

A pleasingly wide hallway then provides seamless passage into the Fairview A’s main living area, which is filled with light, function, and quiet wow factor.

“One of the design features that really stands out is all the massive windows on the rear wall,” says Boles. “There’s a huge window behind the dining area, and the family room’s back wall is filled with floor-to-ceiling windows. They allow so much natural light to flow inside.”

He adds that the staircase next to the family room, a design feature new to the Fairview A, improved both aesthetics and light flow.

“Previous designs had a normal staircase with spindles, whereas this one has black railing with tempered glass panels that allow light to flow freely between the two levels. Not only that, but it also looks incredible.”

Meanwhile, the main living area’s natural brightness is complemented beautifully by a free-flowing, user-friendly layout that’s surrounded by tasteful, earthy finishes and functional spaces.

“A change was made with the kitchen,” notes Boles. “The previous version of the home featured a black-and-white kitchen; this one has glossy white and taupe cabinetry which blends really well with the natural coloured, five-inch luxury vinyl plank flooring. The island also comes with a quartz countertop with waterfall ends, which is a nice extra.”

Then, there’s a highly useful space to the rear of the kitchen: a well-appointed spice kitchen.

“Like the staircase, it’s an upgrade, and one that people really like. It adds an extra dimension of utility for large families.”

The smashing staircase then leads up to the Fairview A’s upper level, which features the same blend of efficiency and elegance that runs throughout the main floor.

Thanks to a large window set up high on the rear wall of the family room below, the entire upper level is bathed in natural light.

It also offers an exceptionally family-friendly layout, says Boles.

“There’s a loft and bathroom to the right, as well as two large bedrooms that were positioned on the wall to the right of the main bath,” he says. “If a family wanted, the bathroom could be turned into a laundry room, and the bathroom would be moved into the space on the right side of the long hallway that leads to the primary bedroom.”

Placed neatly at the end of the hallway (which feels more like a catwalk), the primary bedroom is a posh, ultra-private retreat.

“A patio door on its left-hand wall leads out to a large, covered balcony,” he says. “There’s also a surprisingly large walk-in closet and a beautiful ensuite with a tile floor, vanity with quartz countertop and dual sinks, a custom shower with frameless glass surround and soaker tub that has the same artistic backsplash that the shower has.”

Boles says the Fairview A was designed to deliver affordable luxury.

“Its value lies in its finishing work, inclusions such as the staircase and spice kitchen, and its flexible, family-friendly layout,” he says. “It looks and feels like a million-dollar home but doesn’t cost anywhere near that much.”
