Can’t go wrong with the classics. Mattamy Homes knows that better than most, as North America’s largest privately owned home builder begins sales in late June for their newest community, Yorkville that is envisioned to bring a new sense of style with classic architecture and brand new home designs.

Yorkville will be Mattamy’s seventh community development in the Calgary area, but it will be their first in the southwest and they have plans to turn this community into something very special with a signature architectural style that hark to simpler times.

“We’ve done our market research and have identified that people in the area love the classic architecture,” Mattamy Homes’ Vice-President of Sales and Marketing, Warren Saunders, tells Condo Living.

Mattamy is releasing new designs for their line of single- and multi-family homes in Yorkville that feature brand new signature styles that will define the community. These include exclusive Brownstone Colonial, and Georgian Colonial inspired architectural styles that create an inspiring, and timeless identity to Yorkville, Saunders adds.

“Yorkville is adjacent to natural beauty; with rolling Foothills and glimpses of the Rocky Mountains to the West,” he says. “Our homeowners will benefit by having quick access to their outdoor adventures.”

These new single-family homes and townhouses and rear lane duplexes have new elevations that feature extensive use of brick and Hardie Board siding exclusively throughout the community. The benefits of Hardie board (a cement fibreboard material) from an aesthetic, durability and fire rating perspective will add incredible value for homeowners who choose to live in Yorkville.

The master planned community of Yorkville will offer Urban Townhomes with attached double car garages, Duplexes with rear attached double car garages, and single-family homes (both single- and double-car garages). Like in all their communities, Mattamy is the exclusive developer and home builder in Yorkville.

Single-family homes are offered on 38- and 31-foot wide lots. Those on 38-foot wide lots that will come in six plans ranging from 2,158 to 2,721 square-feet, there are also six floor plans for those on 31-foot-wide lots and they range from 1,599 to 1,955 square-feet. The community will have show homes for Urban Townhomes and rear-laned duplexes, as well, and will be opening in September of 2018.

Mattamy’s sales and presentation centre will open on June 23 along with five single-family show homes to launch sales.

The iconic designs of the homes will integrate into the overall vision that Mattamy has planned for Yorkville.

A central park area will showcase an interactive art feature in addition to a playground, reflective pond with bridge, and plenty of green space.

“The central park will be at the heart of the community, it will have an extensive east/west walking corridor that connects the naturalized area of Radio Tower Creek in the west, through to the Priddis wetlands and future LRT to the east,” Saunders says.

The northeast corner of Yorkville, will feature a nine-acre pond with two fountains, and terraced sitting steps that transition the pond area to the sale center plaza area.

In addition to the architecture and vision Yorkville will bring to life for it’s homeowners, as Saunders says Yorkville will be optimized for recreational pursuits for residents.

“The community is geared for people with active lifestyles and a wide range of recreational opportunities are just at their fingertips. From the Yorkville location, You can take a road bike excursion or a short drive to Bragg Creek and the Kananaskis provincial park, or to check out the farmers’ market in Millarville.”

Also, there are no shortages of amenities with quick access to Spruce Meadows, Sirocco Golf Club, shopping and professional services next to our north entrance, and major shopping areas a close drive away. Easy commuting through connecting major roadways makes it a breeze for downtown commuters or for those weekend getaways to the mountains.

Located along Sheriff King Street and 194th Avenue S.W., Yorkville promises a rich, modern lifestyle in homes that mirror a timeless, classic design.

“This is our seventh community to date in Calgary and surrounding area, and we’re very excited to bring Yorkville to life in this great location in southwest Calgary,” Saunders says.

Yorkville follows Mattamy’s Windsong, Southwinds and The Gates at Hillcrest communities in Airdrie, Lakepointe in Chestermere, and Cityscape and Carrington in Calgary. Carrington was just launched in northwest Calgary last year and it has recently opened new show homes of their rear attached double garage duplexes.
