One of the most exciting prospects about purchasing a new home is the opportunity to make it your own – to customize. For homebuyers working with a builder or developer, it’s easy to let dreams of customization take over, especially if it’s your first build! While customization is fun, and a necessary step in the process of making a house a home, a lot of builders put time and energy into making the customization process easier for you and you may not even know it.
StreetSide Developments is one of those builders. For every new home design and neighbourhood, StreetSide brings in a special team of design experts to choose palettes, standard features and optional upgrades that are unique to each development. The goal is to provide high-end standard finishings, suitable to each home, so that you can worry less about changes and more about actually moving in. For those who are looking to customize here and there, StreetSide offers a variety of premium upgrades. But don’t take our word for it, here are a few highlights from StreetSide’s current condo style developments.
Hunter House at Silverado
The new attached bungalow Hunter House neighbourhood in the Silverado community is full of unique, high-end features that can’t help but make you feel at home. Situated in the middle of Calgary’s most beautiful parklands, Hunter House maximizes space in its interior design to match the openness of the surrounding community. Features include 10-foot ceilings, stylish oak engineered hardwood flooring, quartz or granite counters in the kitchen and bath and 3 unique designer palettes to choose from. If you’re looking for a little more, Hunter House provides an optional fireplace and built-in shelving upgrades to add a refined, yet friendly feel to your living space.
Origins at Cranston
The Origins at Cranston condo community is full of premium, contemporary design features selected with suburban living in mind. In addition to your choice of two designer colour palettes, Origins standard finishings include stainless steel appliances, contemporary flat-panel cabinetry, a spacious island with eating bar and luxury vinyl plank flooring that has 5 colour options for consideration. StreetSide provides customization options in their standard finishings, but if you’re not quite satisfied there, designer upgrades include granite or quartz countertops, hardwood flooring options and additional cabinet styles and colours.
Vivace at West 85th
The trendy new Vivace at West 85th condo development is made to match the neighbourhood. Entertainment is built into the design of the condo, so whether you’re in or out for a drink with friends you won’t be disappointed. The Vivace development’s standard finishings include quartz or granite countertops, a 4-piece Samsung stainless steel appliance package featuring a gas range, spa-inspired bathrooms, and a designer lighting package complete with cabinet lighting in the kitchen. While you’re unlikely to be left wanting, there are designer upgrades available throughout to add some extra comfort and some extra flare.
The beautiful infill neighbourhood of Killarney Townes is the epitome of refined, urban living, and it shows in the standard features that have been selected for each towhome. Each townhome is offered in two elegant colour palettes and features 9-foot main floor ceilings, a modern gas fireplace with stone surround, hardwood in the kitchen, dining and living areas and full height tile backsplash in the kitchen. Quartz countertops are offered in the kitchen and bathroom and between the 42-inch flat panel cabinetry and ceramic floor tile there aren’t many upgrades to be had. We’re really just scratching the surface here, too.
Standard, But Only in Name
If you’re looking at a StreetSide Developments home, know that your standard finishings are only standard in name. Features have been uniquely selected for your development to appeal to the style of home and feel of the neighbourhood. The goal is to ensure your home is move-in ready, having tackled design from the very start. So while making a home your own is good, don’t let it get in the way of enjoying your home sooner!
