Whether you’re a young professional looking to start building equity, a young family looking for affordable options, or a retired couple looking to downsize, there are many benefits to choosing a new townhome. Modern townhomes have a sleek look, and most offer easy access to just about any amenity you could possibly want.
Take, for instance, StreetSide’s popular Essex model. With almost 1,500 square feet of living space and prices starting in the $309,950, you’ll be happy living in this home. Check out everything it has to offer, then stop in for a tour.
When you choose the Essex, you get a bit more than what you find in other townhome models. After entering through the two-car garage, you’ll find a cozy den. This room gives you space for a home office, a craft room, or any other type of space where you might want a bit of extra privacy. Unlike other models that might tuck a room like this in the basement, the Essex has this room placed right at the front of the home. You’ll be able to get a lot of natural light into the space, making it feel even more welcoming.
Main Floor: Built for Living and Entertaining
Too many people make the mistake of thinking townhomes are too small for entertaining. As you walk through the Essex, you’ll see this couldn’t be further from the truth. The open-concept design of the main floor almost seems like it was designed to invite people in. The large center island gives you plenty of additional space for food prep or serving up appetizers.
Vinyl plank flooring throughout the space connects each of the rooms, making the kitchen, the dining area, and the living room flow together. With such a open-concept main floor, you’ll be comfortable preparing dinner while still being able to entertain your friends and family in the living room.
Many people choose the Essex for its spacious balcony area. It’s covered so you can enjoy it in all types of weather, and there’s enough room for a grill, and a table with chairs. Imagine how nice it will feel sitting out here in the summers with a glass of lemonade while cooking some steaks on the grill.
Two Suites Upstairs
Another unique feature of the Essex is it has two suites on the third floor. The master suite is situated at the front of the home where it will take in a lot of natural sunlight. It has a spa-like ensuite with side-by-side sinks and a privacy door for the toilet. Step through the ensuite into the expansive walk-in closet where there are plenty of space for all of your clothes.
The second suite is smaller, but it still has everything you need. There’s a walk-in closet and a three-piece ensuite. It works well as a teenagers bedroom, a guest room, or an income suite if you’re looking to get a roommate to help pay down your mortgage.
Energy Efficiency and Great Style
With a brand-new home like this, you’ll get to take advantage of the latest materials and building techniques that improve energy efficiency. This includes LED lights, a programmable thermostat, and a 95 percent efficiency furnace. You may even find yourself paying a lot less for utilities.
Best of all, though, the home is stylish. It incorporates many of the most popular design trends, including quartz countertops, a full-height tile backsplash in the kitchen, and vinyl plank flooring. Those who purchase with StreetSide even get a four-hour consultation with a certified interior designer. This person can help you select the right colours and building materials to give your home the look you want.
Desirable Communities Throughout Edmonton
A great home isn’t perfect unless it’s in a community that’s a good fit for you. Fortunately, StreetSide can build the Essex model in most of their Edmonton neighbourhoods. In the Skyview community, for instance, you’ll be in the north part of the city. You’ll enjoy an easy commute to the downtown, and there are a number of popular restaurants and shopping centres in this area.
McLaughlin in Spruce Grove is a popular choice for those who want a quieter lifestyle. The Essex is also available in Crystallina, Cy Becker, and Tamarack as well.
You deserve to live in a home that fits your lifestyle. The Essex model works well for people at different stages of their lives. Once you see how spacious it feels, we think you’ll be hooked.
