Home on the ridge
Not exactly where the deer and the antelope play, but Edenmore in Kincora surely captures the feel of Big Sky country
On a bluff overlooking the picturesque, rolling grasslands of northwest Calgary sits one of the city’s most scenic communities; Kincora is a quiet enclave of estate homes and a privileged lifestyle. Aldebaran Enterprises’ Edenmore in Kincora townhomes captures the freedom of spirit that big sky country living offers.
The 84-unit townhome project, which sits on a ridge with a commanding view of the majestic vistas of nature unfolding beneath it, has been well-received as Phase One of the project has been completely sold out, says sales manager Ryan Heggedal.
“Construction for Phase Two is well under way, and possessions for the 1,400-square-foot Meara models will be ready in March. It’s something we’re quite excited about,” he tells Condo Living.
Starting at $334,800, the Meara just has value and quality that can’t be beat.”
There are several floor plans available at Edenmore, starting at 1,248 square-feet up to 1,476 square-feet. All have double garages and two-and-a-half baths and nine-foot ceilings on the main floor, which Heggedal says is a major convenience to their buyers. “We get a whole range of buyers here, many are first-time homeowners and empty-nesters, who appreciate the style and convenience our floor plans offer,” he says.
All Edenmore homes have energy-efficiency as a core in their designs, including high-efficiency furnaces and water tanks, high-performance solar windows, low-flow water closets, Energy Star-rated appliance package (fridge, stove and dishwasher) and R40 ceiling insulation. Homes also use low VOC paints and compact fluorescent bulbs.
The Carrick show suite is an example of the style and functionality of Edenmore homes, making the best of its 1,248-square-foot floor space. It has an open design with big windows throughout the 614-square-foot main floor that emphasizes the beauty of the outdoors and gives a bright, sunny and open feel.
Starting at only $296,800 including GST, Heggedal says it’s really good value for the quality of the home itself and for its premiere location in Kincora.
“The community is a real attraction, as Kincora boasts miles of walking trails, 120 acres of greenspace — including parks and an environmental reserve —and a spectacular 15 acre water feature,” Heggedal says. “It is definitely a community that makes you feel at home and promotes a healthy, active lifestyle.”
