The smarter way to live may just be found in Walden these days, as Excel Homes’ recently opened show home for Holland Park brings to sharp focus the double-the-value appeal of their two-bedroom townhomes.

Holland Park’s double master bedrooms each with spacious walk-in closets and double full bathrooms also come with double car garages making them the perfect home for a variety of lifestyles.

“(Holland Park) supports a variety of lifestyles — singles looking for space — space for work, hobbies and visitors — people with one or two children, or to accommodate a roommate to help with mortgage payments,” says Development
Manager Rose-Mary Damiani.

She adds that buyers are loving the freedom afforded by the open and spacious double-wide floor plan, the double car side-by-side garage, the natural light streaming in from the oversized windows, and the quality high standard of finishings.

The new show home on 4 Walgrove Common S. E. puts a spotlight on just what comes with a Holland Park townhome.

“Everything is included as standard. We worked with a talented team to bring together thoughtful design, excellence in construction and Calgary’s best finishing package at a competitive price to offer a memorable home that looks and feels
different from the other townhomes available in the market,” she tells Condo Living.

Holland Park is located in the popular southeast community of Walden and is touted to bring a new era of townhome living with European-inspired modern architecture for a truly modern lifestyle.

“Our vision for Holland Park is that it encompasses all aspects of living and encourages a fuss-free lifestyle.”

Holland Park’s Dutch Modern design will be “a classic development” in the area that will never grow old, she adds. “But rather, over time, grow into its name with the maturity of the central park and onsite community open space amenities for
residents to enjoy.”

“Residents can also expect a low maintenance, lock-and-leave lifestyle with all snow removal and landscaping taken cared of. This leaves much more time for them to enjoy their lives rather than worrying about maintaining the exterior of their homes,” Damiani says.

The townhomes have a larger feel, as they are 23-feet wide, which is double the width than what can be usually expected in standard townhomes these days, she adds. The nine-foot ceilings of the main floor and oversized windows abet this feeling of grand spaciousness.

Holland Park also comes with in-house amenities designed to bring neighbours closer and create the bonds of community.

“Residents will appreciate the community garden which allows a place for them to not only grow their own fruits, veggies, herbs, and spices, but also to reconnect and get to know one another on a more personal level.”

Holland Park, in short, is all about a balanced lifestyle. “It is designed to encourage a healthier lifestyle and positive choices,” Damiani says. It helps that it is a pet-friendly environment as well. “Bring your four-legged friends with you,” she

At completion, Holland Park will feature 133 townhomes across 21 buildings with two- and three-bedrooms, two-and-a-half bath floor plans.

Current plans are approximately 1,180-1252 square-feet and range in price from $279,900 to $299,900. Summer 2019 will see new two and three bedroom plans come to the market.

Holland Park residents will also appreciate the fact that Walden is an established community. It is a bustling neighbourhood with many great amenities nearby in the Gates of Walden including the Save On Foods, Starbucks, restaurants, banks,
and even its own neighbourhood pub. There will also be a new commercial development across 210th Avenue S.E.

“It’s also located in close proximity to Macleod Trial and the Somerset-Bridlewood LRT, ensuring getting to and from home is quick, easy, and convenient. For those who are looking to slow down, embrace the great outdoors, or start an
exercise regime Walden boasts numerous pathways, playgrounds, and parks, making it easy to get out and explore.”
