Cardel opens show homes in Lighthouse Landing

Cardel Lifestyles has artfully fashioned the ultimate master-planned multifamily community. Lighthouse Landing of Country Hills sits on 20 acres, surrounded by 40 percent green space, and borders the northeast shore of a ten-hectare storm water retention lake, spouting two decorative fountains and a magnificent view.

But Lighthouse Landing is more than just about Cardel quality and value; it’s home.

Nestled on one of the last pieces of land available off Country Hills Boulevard, just north of Sobeys, Lighthouse Landing is easy to get to from the Deerfoot Trail and the future Stoney Trail extension.

A brick entrance and a three and a half storey New England style lighthouse sets the theme for the development – a nautical Cape Cod exterior. With most of its units priced under $300,000, the complex features 207 courtyard and garage-style town homes plus five four-storey buildings of apartment condominiums, of which three sit alongside the lakeshore.

There are three distinctive units to choose from. One and two bedroom or two bedroom plus den apartment style condominiums range from 624 to 988 square feet starting from $219,900 to $349,900. Pick between a 1,257 to 1,260-square foot town home with three bedrooms or two master bedrooms with ensuite baths. Courtyard town homes with a surface parking stall range from $274,9000, while singlecar garage town homes start at $309,900.

The first thing you will notice as you step into any Lighthouse Landing suite is the feeling of warmth and comfort. The interior resembles the inviting characteristics of other Cardel homes.
You can expect a designer kitchen (as per plan) with oversized corner pantries, kitchen cabinet island or raised eating bar, drawers on lower cabinets, matching end gable panels, microwave cabinet, 18-cubic inch Frigidaire refrigerator, dishwasher, range, and washer/dryer, Moen faucet with pull out veggie spray, andoptional wine rack.

Other details included (as per plan) are roughed in central vacuum system, six-foot patio door, walk-in closets to owners suites, exterior privacy walls to all decks, high sound attenuation, and added construction features to help you save energy and add better air quality. You also have an option to add a main floor fireplace, half or full ensuite, or extra windows in some of the floor plans.

Every home is built with Cardel’s quality workmanship. In its quest towards providing the perfect possession, Cardel is currently turning over homes with almost zero deficiencies. And the best thing is that phase one of Lighthouse Landing is already near completion. That means you can actually see what you’re buying and move in before the end of the year.

Adding to its appeal, Lighthouse Landing is like its own community. A park overlooking the water with gazebo, giant tot lot, and benches are just some of the features that add endless value. Everything you could possibly need or want is within walking distance. A boardwalk surrounding the lake leads – in one direction to 94 hectares of shops, services, restaurants, and entertainment at Country Hills Town Center, and to Cardel Place in the other. There are several area golf courses, a future LRT station planned nearby, and you are minutes from the airport (let’s not forget The Superstore and Starbucks).

Cardel Lifestyles also provides financing through CIBC with a mortgage specialist to help you with your mortgage pre-approval. Area Mangers Brad or Bryan Logel will walk you through the condominium buying process, helping you choose the right home for your lifestyle, and ensuring all the little details are in place.

The first two of eight decorated show suites will open October 1. You can view them at 12025 Country Hills Boulevard, NE, Monday to Thursday from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.; closed Friday; and noon to 5 p.m. weekends. CL
