Legacy is offering something Calgary has not seen before; new wider, residential lots set in the middle of their very own thicket of trees. A veritable forest right in the middle of a bustling, thriving suburban community – this is The Woods in Legacy, and show homes have just opened.
The Woods in Legacy is the most ambitious undertaking for WestCreek Developments, as it aims to build the homes right in the middle of a thick forest of aspen that marks the southern portion of this southeast community.
“The Woods, and The Ridge in Legacy were the two of the most beautiful portions of the (greater) community of Legacy. We knew the woods would be perfect for a unique home when we were planning the community,” says Kalida Manarin, marketing manager at WestCreek.
The Ridge is the site for Legacy’s prestigious estate homes, with its pristine views of the lush Bow River Valley at its feet, while The Woods promises a sense of peaceful privacy and solitude with homes surrounded by trees on its sides and back.
Homes in The Woods in Legacy will be surrounded on three sides by mature and newly planted trees, and all care was taken in ensuring that the land was relatively untouched when adding homes into the Woods. “There will be a minimum of 10 metres of trees in backyards and between homes and most with even more,” Manarin says.
Homes here will have a minimum of 33 feet (10 metres) of trees behind each home. There is an already established aspen forest here but with more trees to be planted in the future from a local nursery.
Homes will be encompassed by trees and there are opportunities to have homes that back onto the woods in other areas, and The Woods will have a custom entrance feature that welcomes residents to the area.
Jayman BUILT, Trico Homes and WestCreek Homes are offering homes here starting from the $570,000s. Offered are wide-shallow homes with triple car garages, bungalows will also be available. Lots are from 42 to 44 feet wide and up to 170 feet long, almost twice as large as an average lot in Calgary. All three have opened their respective show homes.
The first phase of The Woods in Legacy will have 42 homes and all the builders will have show homes open here for the New Year. “These show homes represent the best that The Woods can offer, and lets visitors have a taste of what it will be like to live in this section of Legacy,” Manarin says.
All of The Woods in Legacy’s homes truly define what backyard living is all about, Manarin says. “We have hired some landscape architects to really show you what is possible in a custom backyard in Legacy and the woods, with six different backyard layouts and looks for you to see.”
“You can really immerse yourself in The Woods, the lots are big enough for triple car garage homes,” she adds. Homes can come with up to four bedrooms upstairs (main floor bedroom models are also available) and more customizable home options. “The Woods in Legacy provides the quiet oasis you have been waiting for.”
Legacy, the two-time Calgary Home Builders Association Community of The Year for 2015 and 2016, is truly shaping up to be a community for the future. “This is a community for everyone, where families can put down roots. Where you can buy your first home and move on to a bigger family home and onto a downsizer home without leaving the community. It has all the amenities you will ever need close at hand and you can see even more coming in the horizon,” Manarin says.
