Buyers at Cardel Lifestyles’ new condo community of Cranston Ridge will enjoy the views from inside and out. Not to mention the life of ease and convenience that comes with it.

Like all of Cardel Lifestyles developments, Cranston Ridge offers buyers a unique home, stylish with lots of convenience and practicality built in to fit a varied range of lifestyles.

All five four-storey buildings are designed to maximize the buyers enjoyment of their extraordinary location along the southern ridge of Cranston.

The exteriors are of the safe and attractive Hardie Board siding with matching cultured stone that gives Cranston Ridge a sophisticated look. While interiors have nine-foot ceilings on every floor, adorned by very large windows that let in a tremendous amount of natural light, which also allows for better views and the feel of a much larger condo.

The views of southern Alberta grasslands and the city itself are unmatched from Cranston Ridge’s vantage point, not to mention that residents get to enjoy all the benefits of living in a well established community, full of amenities, and surrounded by some of the best parks in the entire city.

“If you want to walk to the Bow River, you can,” says Brad Logel, sales and marketing manager for Cardel Lifestyles. “If you want to walk to Fish Creek Park you can, there’s also two parks across the street. It’s close to Cranston Market and Seton shopping, Calgary South Health Campus, existing schools along with access to Deerfoot and Stoney Trails. At Cranston Ridge you are moments from it all.”

Cranston Ridge will have 271 condos with some future townhomes. There are seven different condo floor plans to choose from, with quicker possessions options throughout 2015. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity won’t last forever as Cranston Ridge is already selling its third building.

Homes range from a one-bedroom layout starting at 624 square-feet, to two-bedroom homes ranging from 654 all the way up to 1,038 square-feet (plus patio decks). One of our most popular plans, says Logel, is The Ridge, which is 897 square-feet, has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and is a layout that offers a lot of flexibility.

“This is one the best designs in the city,” says Logel. “We have a large open kitchen area, with the option of adding additional cabinetry, and or additional pantry, along with a wall oven for the gourmet cook.” This plan also features a deluxe ensuite bathroom just off the large master walk-in closet. The ensuite includes his and her sinks along with a linen cabinet allowing couples the opportunity to get ready at the same time and have plenty of room for all their necessities. The Ridge plan also comes with a large laundry room with extra storage space, which is rare for condos.

Other popular plans at Cranston Ridge include their larger corner style condos which are called The Bow and The Fish Creek models. These have two bedrooms, two baths, an island and feature additional windows to take advantage of the location views. The sizes for these plans range from 941 square-feet to 1,038 square-feet (plus patio decks). They offer four different versions with options that offer choices of a den, a larger front entry and or a deluxe master ensuite that comes with a tub, shower and dual sinks. These plans have proven very popular with those downsizing or your professional couples who want.

Homes here start from around $209,900 plus GST for a one-bedroom floor plan, two-bedroom layouts range from $259,900 to $311,900 plus GST, and the larger two-bedrooms suits that include a den start from $294,900 to 321,900 plus GST.

The standard finishing here comes with a selection of four professionally-designed interior colour palettes, full appliance package, high efficiency stacking front load washer and dryer, full height tile backsplash. There’s a real attention to detail with soft close drawers, with a variety of chrome finishes, that add a little bling to your home.

Each home also comes with either an underground or outdoor parking stall, and a bike storage locker and a large patio deck.

Cardel Lifestyles has built its reputation both on building exceptional homes and providing exceptional service. “We have the highest customer satisfaction rating for building condos and townhomes in the country,” says Logel. “For Cardel Lifestyles, it’s about extreme value, high satisfaction, all in Calgary’s best locations, this is what we offer our buyers.”

After a tour of the construction site at Cranston Ridge it’s easy to be convinced. The location is fantastic, the views from the top suites are simply breathtaking, the interior layouts are detailed to buyers’ needs with enough sizes and options for everyone, with high-end finishes that make the entire home come together, all for a price that won’t break your budget.

Cranston is one of south Calgary’s most popular communities, which is why it’s nearing completion. The time to get into a new condo in Cranston, with this great opportunity, is now.

Four new show suites are opening February 28, if you’re looking for a suburban condo, then visit Cranston Ridge, you’ll really enjoy the view.
