Live the life you want

Calbridge Homes’ new Vantage townhomes in Fireside offer a balanced lifestyle

Choosing a new home is based on many factors: location, primarily; budget, secondly; and, last but not least, lifestyle.

Here in Fireside, a community in the south of Cochrane, Calbridge Homes has achieved the trifecta. Vantage townhomes are located in one of the town's most picturesque and vibrant communities, are priced affordably, and allow residents the flexibility to make living life actively a priority. "Our buyers want to live here for the value, lifestyle, and location," says David Mackenzie, Vice President and General Manager of Calbridge Homes.

"Whether you're a first time homeowner or rightsizing your choice of home to fit a new lifestyle, Vantage Fireside is a great place to live."
Fireside is a community with many amenities within close proximity. "Everything is minutes away," he says, "especially the Tim Hortons, that will be right across the street from Vantage." Indeed, with local shopping and services only minutes away, residents here will not have to stray very far for anything.

Kids will love playing at Flagstone Park, an area that includes swings, slides, and a jungle gym. This park is just near the traffic circle at the entrance of Fireside, with benches for parents to mingle with their neighbours. It's designed to be a place where residents of all ages will be able to get out and really enjoy their surroundings.

There are also two wetlands — one right alongside of Vantage — that are the perfect places to simply take a moment for yourself, do a little communing with nature, and feel the tranquility that is in rare abundance here in Fireside. With a pathway system that connects the entire community, you're sure to find many places where you will be able to connect with nature, and just escape for a while.

Of course, living at Vantage is a bit of an escape unto itself. When complete, the 'community within a community' will include 147 townhomes with three models to choose from in either a two-bedroom or a three-bedroom layout, and ranging in size from 1,119 square-feet to 1,486 square-feet. Each home comes with a standard private front patio and a rear covered deck. ìWe have also added space for an additional flex room that could be used as a den, gym, yoga room, or whatever is part of your lifestyle. It is a room you can personalize,î says Mackenzie.

Design of the townhomes is as practical as it is pleasing to the eyes, with a double attached garage, upper floor laundry — a great bonus on its own — and stainless steel appliances. There are also wide plank hardwood floors and a washer and dryer, to complete the finishing package.

What's most amazing about Vantage, though is the price. Vantage townhomes start from around $279,000, including GST. "Especially with the added offer of only $1,000 down to purchase your townhome during our pre construction phase," adds Mackenzie, "makes it an easy decision for buyers." Living at Vantage gives buyers an opportunity to have a lifestyle that includes going to the mountains on a regular basis, as they're literally minutes away. Going to Calgary is the same distance in the other direction, making your commute to work or visiting friends a breeze. Living in the middle definitely has its advantages.

"At Calbridge Homes, we are dedicated to building extraordinary homes that fundamentally enhance the way people live. We don't want you to change your life to fit your home; we build homes to fit your lifestyle," says Mackenzie.

Finding a balance for your life, which includes a location you desire, a price that won't break the bank, and a lifestyle that makes coming home the best part of your day, is the true Vantage of living here. "We are a very passionate team, we love what we do, and that's making a difference in people's lives," says Mackenzie.
