Cover Story | Award-winning single detached and townhomes in the heart of historic Richmond Village
September 23, 2020
Discover Fox Run, a sought-after west-end community that capitalizes on its enviable location in historic Richmond Village.
Designed by Caivan Communities, Fox Run is captivating active Ottawans who are drawn to the parks, green spaces, and area amenities that are thoughtfully integrated into this community. An expansive naturalized community pond and the neighbourhood’s proximity to the scenic Jock River add further appeal for nature lovers, all just steps away from Richmond’s main street.
This new residential neighbourhood by Caivan Communities is defined by its light-filled single detached homes and collection of two-story rear lane and 25’ townhomes. Elegant homes are inspired by Fox Run’s village location, presenting a Modern Farmhouse architectural style that is stunning. Here, cozy front porches abound and premium building material details highlight Caivan’s commitment to quality finishes.
Fox Run is already a thriving and established neighbourhood. Families began moving in last May and quickly settled into the larger Richmond community, rich with amenity and character. With a proud history of over 200 years, Richmond is a thriving village, known for agricultural events such as the Richmond Fair but also chalk full of amenities which include grocery stores, restaurants, health services, and one of the region’s top high schools. Nearby Kanata provides easy access to cinemas and recreation centres. Barrhaven is only 10 minutes to the east via the 416.
Two spectacular model homes are open for viewing, showpieces for modern family living, with bold sightlines, carefully conceived spaces, and elegant finishings.
The first model home (Series II Plan 2), which won a coveted design award from the Greater Ottawa Home Builders’ Association, boasts an aesthetic that is clean and crisp, with whitewashed wood floors throughout. In the kitchen, Deslaurier custom cabinets are paired with white cabinetry with rift-cut white oak accents. White Caesarstone quartz counters and backsplash complete the look. This kitchen has it all, including a walk-in pantry tucked away behind a frosted glass door.
The second model home (Series III, Plan 2) further highlights the vision of Caivan’s design team, who specialize in consulting with new homeowners to choose the many finishings that will soon transform each house into a home. Here, the modern farmhouse reigns with shaker-style cabinets in the kitchen and soft whites and greys throughout the main floor.
All of the single detached homes display thoughtfully designed interiors that maximize both space and light. Innovative and practical floorplans showcase Caivan’s award-winning designs, which see main floor posts and structural walls strategically located or eliminated which dramatically opens up living areas. The result is a light-filled, main floor living space in which the kitchen, dining area, and great room are joined for easy living and entertaining. Porches, two-car garages, finished basements, and spacious entries add to the functionality.
Stop in today to tour the model homes and to discover first-hand the charm of historic Richmond Village.
