In the heart of southeast Edmonton’s most talked about master-planned community is The Orchards at Ellerslie, Excel Homes’ newest collection of homes. This quiet, tree-lined neighbourhood is vibrant, showcasing walking trails, stormwater ponds, an eight-acre park, schools, shops, entertainment and dining, as well as any amenity urbanites are looking for.
Award-winning Excel Homes offers six model homes in this coveted enclave, all created with families in mind. If you have ever entertained the idea of living in a burgeoning community that offers a unique blend of urban appeal and rural charm, then now is the time. Excel Homes wants to make home ownership a reality. So, when you purchase a new home at the Orchards, Excel is offering a limited time only promotion of $20,000 off options and upgrades of your choice. Imagine your new home customized to your specific needs and wants? Excel Homes will help you realize your dream home.
Excel Homes’ collection of front garage Built Green detached homes range from 1,500-sq.-ft. to more than 2,200-sq.-ft.
Excel Homes understands that prospective homebuyers want greater flexibility in what their kitchen and the rest of the home looks like, and they present a host of options and upgrades to choose from – everything from flooring to countertops, fireplaces to cabinetry, as well as the opportunity for a finished basement – perfect for use as an in-law suite, recreation room or a mortgage helper, just to name a few.
Each thoughtfully designed home features oversized windows that flood the home with natural light, as well as bright, airy kitchens conveniently located off the great room. Most models showcase kitchens with islands with seating for two and double sinks, a nook and pantry, and the busy family’s all-important flex room.
Upstairs in most of the models, you will find a large bonus room, bedrooms, which include a vaulted ceiling in the master bedroom with ensuite, a spacious secondary bathroom, as well as the laundry facilities – great for the way busy families live today. (The Stanley is a three-bedroom home, while the Collingwood has four bedrooms).
In addition, Excel Homes makes it easy to ensure you are in your home when you are ready. The builder offers a wide assortment of possession timelines. All you need to do is speak to one of their sales associates about Excel Homes’ quick build time and select the finishes and move-in sooner than six months.
At the heart of this sought-after neighbourhood, is the residents’ private Orchards Club House – a brand new 12,000-sq.-ft. facility with flex rooms, a banquet room, fully equipped kitchen, skate change area and viewing gallery.
The club house is designed to be the hub of this exciting new enclave, bringing neighbours and friends together. It doesn’t stop there. The adjacent recreational site offers a host of activities, including tennis courts, skating rinks, picnic areas, a splash park and playgrounds.
Getting around the city has never been easier. The Orchards is a short distance away from a number of transportation options, such as Anthony Henday Drive and South Edmonton Common. Residents can be downtown within 20 minutes, while the Edmonton International Airport is a short 15-minute commute by car.

Known for its attention to detail and the highest quality of craftsmanship, the homes at The Orchards promise to be bright, inviting and highly functional, with all the features that modern families need to live their best lives.
