After more than 25 years of experience in interior design, including an award-winning run as part of the Remington Development sales team, it’s safe to say that Sandra Wiebe has a feel for what Gatestone buyers are looking for.

The owner of Style Savvy Interiors has always prided herself in the ability to quickly assess design needs for her clients, but coming up with the look for Gatestone’s new show home was almost second nature.

After working on Remington Development’s previous projects in Quarry Park, including Champagne and The Gates, Sandra was intimately aware of what buyers in this dynamic new community just off Glenmore Trail in the southeast wanted. And the high standard of specs already provided in Gatestone made her styling work quite easy.

Gatestone is Remington Development’s first townhome project in Quarry Park. It collects 15 of the most exclusive and luxurious townhomes in the community and has a very discerning clientele.

“Our focus was to offer plenty of space where people won’t feel like they are living in multi-family setting. Oversized open-concept main floor spaces showcase an abundance of light and great views of the surrounding community.”

And of course, tasteful and timeless décor that allows the show home to fulfil all its lifestyle potentials.

“Our luxurious Gatestone Townhomes attract a variety of homebuyers. Our goal was to create a distinctive setting that would appeal to a broad market,” Sandra says. 

“The Gatestone Townhomes embrace a Classic Modern Design. The neutral palette and timeless aesthetic allow the distinguishing finishes to take centre stage.” 

Remaining townhomes range in size from 1,370-1,615 square-feet, and two- and three-bedroom models are still available. Visit the sales centre at 350 Quarry Park Boulevard S.E. or go to for more information.

The lock-and-leave, low-maintenance lifestyle offered at Gatestone is why it has been so successful, but the stylishly practical open concept floor plans add much to the charm. “The impressive, oversized windows flood the interior space with natural light resulting in an intrinsic feeling of connection to the outdoors,” Sandra says. It helps that this riverside community has nature at its backyard.

The massive walk-in closet of the master suite brings so much useful space to the home, and Sandra dresses it up nicely to illustrate its functional capability. Her touch goes a long way to show that Gatestone is not just about luxury, but also practicality.

Sandra says the master en suite has everything a discerning homebuyer desires: double-sink vanity, quartz countertop, luxurious tiled shower surround with rain-shower and hand-held showerhead.

“Our spa-like bathrooms are best described as classic and elegant. They feature superior finishes, which are complemented by luxurious towels and a few thoughtful touches,” she says. 

A modern touch on traditional style emphasizing functionality is captured in loving detail in the Gatestone show home. Notice the enormous amount of storage space, the wide-plank engineered hardwood floor, the quartz-topped island with extended ledge, and stainless steel appliances that set the stage for a stylish living space meant to entertain. 

In the master bedroom, oversized windows flood the room with natural light. The dark metal railing on the balcony draws the eye outside. “The contrast of light and dark is repeated with the furniture and accessories in the bedroom,” Sandra says, and it is a tenet she adheres to in her design work. “Furnishings do not have to be match-y, but there should be a visual relationship between the design elements in order to establish harmony within the space.”
