As a young professional, you understand the importance of building up equity, but you might not be ready to purchase a sprawling family home. StreetSide’s Altius townhomes are an affordable solution for those who want to take the first step toward homeownership.
Starting from $209,998, the award-winning Astor model offers a functional floor plan along with the stylish details you’d expect in a brand-new home. Learn more about what it has to offer to see if it’s right for you.
Stacked Townhome Style
The first thing you’ll notice is even though the Astor is “just” a one-bedroom home, it has a stacked townhome style that gives it more of a house-like feel than what you’d find in a typical one-bedroom condo. At the ground level, you get the benefit of a private garage. You can park your car, but still have some space to store your bike, skis, or kayak.
The large foyer connects to the main entryway and the door from the garage. With its ample closet space, you won’t have to worry about storage for your jackets, boots, and shoes.
Once you head up the stairs from your foyer and down the hall, you’ll enter a beautiful open-concept living area. Natural light pours in through the windows, brightening the space. The quartz kitchen counters wrap around to create a distinct kitchen area that’s still connected to the living room. You’ll enjoy eating at the flush eating bar of the kitchen peninsula.
The living room area is just what you need. It’s big enough to have a few friends over to watch the game or play some cards, but cozy enough that you won’t feel isolated living alone. Walk through the door in the living room to reach the outdoor balcony. It’s the perfect space to relax with your morning coffee or evening glass of wine.
Large Master Suite
You’ll enjoy all the space you have in the master suite. There’s plenty of room for your bed and furniture, but you can keep things neat by storing your clothes in the extra-large walk-in closet. With a door from the bedroom, the bathroom feels like the private ensuite you find in much larger homes, but it also has a door from the main hallway so guests don’t have to access the bathroom through your bedroom.
Your Own Laundry
The Astor floor plan also includes a separate laundry area with a linen closet. You’ll enjoy being able to do your laundry in the stacked washer and dryer, then quickly putting the clothes away in your room across the hall. It’s far more convenient than heading to the laundromat.
Design Features in the Astor
This home has a sleek, modern look, and you’re able to make many of the design decisions on your own. However, when you buy a home with StreetSide, you’ll receive a complimentary private design consultation with a design professional to get a bit of help selecting the colours. The Astor comes with sleek and durable quartz countertops, vinyl plank flooring on the main floor (the bedroom with be carpeted) and a subway tile backsplash in the kitchen.
All of StreetSide’s homes are energy-efficient. Your new home will come with a 95 percent high-efficiency furnace and a programmable thermostat so you can easily regulate the temperature in your home. The home also comes with LED light bulbs – the most energy-efficient bulbs on the market today.
StreetSide’s Astor model is available in Glenridding and Desrochers. If you choose either of these locations, you’ll enjoy a wide variety of amenities. They’re both close to the Currents of Windermere shopping area as well as South Edmonton Common, so you can easily get food, clothes, and just about anything else you might need. Active individuals appreciate the nearby trails that are perfect for jogging or bike riding.
You’ll also love this location in South Edmonton. The Anthony Henday is conveniently located so you can get to work in no time at all. You’re also close to the Edmonton International airport.
StreetSide’s townhomes are affordable while having everything you’re looking for in a modern home. The Astor is a good choice for a single professional or a young couple.
