Hunter House blends charm, luxury and convenience

From move-up homebuyers looking for stylish practicality and affordability, to downsizers and empty nesters looking for the spacious and luxurious appointments they’re accustomed to, Hunter House has everything to fit their wants and needs.

With a select collection of stacked bungalows and three-level townhomes, Hunter House by Streetside Developments does indeed hit the sweet spot for today’s multi-family dwellers by creating a fully realized community that everyone can enjoy.

The stacked bungalows, with their spaciousness and upscale finish, have become a favourite among the downsizer crowd and 40 per cent of its 38 units have already been snapped up. While more than half of the 54 three-level townhomes have also been sold, as buyers relish its impressive functionality and attainable price, says area manager Karen Payne.

Perhaps adding to the impetus of buying here is that Hunter House is the final opportunity to buy a multi-family development in this southwest community of Silverado. This family-friendly community by Qualico is growing at a rapid pace, but its quaint close-to-nature charm remains intact.

“People can already see how terrific Silverado is turning out to be. It is on the priority list to get a new K-9 school. There is a new commercial area complete with coffee shops and pubs just down the street from Hunter House, and a new interchange to connect 194 Avenue to Macleod Trail is also in the works that would improve an already effortless accessibility,” Payne says.

Besides the great neighbourhood, Streetside’s impeccable design sensibilities have been the biggest factor in Hunter House’s success.
Hunter House combines space and convenience; each home has a double-car garage, spacious outdoor living terraces and flexible designs with a double master bedroom option and a storage area that can easily be used as an office.

“The double, side-by-side garage alone is something not very many other townhomes offer, and the standard finishes we offer are already an upgrade in most other developments and includes granite or quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, 12-by-24-inch porcelain tile flooring and luxury laminate flooring” Payne says.

Available townhomes start from 1,498 square-feet and are from $416,000 including GST. Some models offer a sunken great room with 12-foot ceilings and large eating bars and separate dining areas.
Hunter House introduced stacked bungalows to Calgary, which offer villa-like single-level living that have been a big hit among downsizers and active seniors.

“Downsizers love the stacked bungalows because they offer a stylish transitional home from their acreages or large family homes they are downsizing from. Our stacked bungalows offer the look and feel of a home with all the luxury and comfort, they are used to,” Payne says. Available stacked bungalows start from 1,406 square-feet at $528,000 including GST.

“People really love the lock-and-leave aspect of our stacked bungalows, as many of them do have vacation homes for the winter, but also like the convenience of owning their own home here without the maintenance headaches that go with it,” Payne observes.

“But we’re also seeing a lot of single professionals who like the two master-bedroom option available in the townhomes, as this gives them the opportunity to take in a roommate who can help with the mortgage if need be.”

The lasting appeal of Hunter House though is that as a low-density multi-family development, the complex will retain its serenity even when it is fully developed. “We have less than 100 homes, which allows plenty of space between buildings which gives the whole development room to breathe.

“We also have ample trees and green space, as well as direct access to the pathway system that surrounds the neighbourhood and creates a very idyllic, park-like setting for residents to enjoy,” Payne says.

“Each building is also constructed to look like a big mansion, or one executive house, to make Hunter House blend in with the estate character of the community of Silverado.”

Show homes for both stacked bungalows and row townhomes are already open and are the best way to experience the complete Hunter House lifestyle.

Hunter House, however, is only the tip of the iceberg as far as new developments go at Streetside. The past couple of years saw them go through their townhome developments like a hot knife through butter, as Kintalla at Redstone, Evanston Square and The Edge in Airdrie all outperformed expectations and are virtually sold out. The outstanding sales performance came even as Streetside won the Multi-Family Builder of the Year at the 2012 Sam Awards.

2015 looks to be another banner year for Streetside with several developments, including the much-anticipated Vivace West 85th project and the upscale Killarney townhomes that will tap into Calgary’s hot inner-city market.
