Buyers recreating design of Shane Homes’ Arbor II

Highlighted by many sought-after features, a liveable floorplan and stylish décor, it’s easy to see why so many buyers are choosing to purchase and recreate the Arbor II showhome located in Airdrie’s southwest community of Hillcrest.

Crafted by Shane Homes, the 1,472-sq.-ft. Arbor II is one of three functionally styled showhomes and one of four models that make up just 44 paired homes offered in this final phase of Hillcrest.

“We’ve been getting a number of people coming through the showhomes since the start of the New Year and they love the product; everyone has positive comments about them,” says Hillcrest sales associate Anita Luif. “People visiting the Arbor II say it feels much larger than it is because the design flows so well. Our designers did an amazing job with the décor and choosing the soft grey, taupe and white colour tones with accents of black, creating a warm feeling throughout,” she says. “In fact, people love it so much, they’re duplicating the showhome design in their own homes and that’s a great compliment.

“Customers love the open foyer and the front family room, which while open to the rest of the main floor has a cosy and private feel,” Luif notes. “Additionally, they love how many single-family features this paired home has including a master bedroom ensuite with walk-in shower, walk-in closets in every bedroom, nine-ft. ceilings on the main floor, and a second floor laundry. More so, our paired homes in Hillcrest come with front-yard landscaping and rear parking pad that can accommodate a double car garage, starting in the low $320,000s.”

Entering the Arbor II, you’re immediately greeted by one of those fabulous design touches as a black subway tile feature wall highlights the foyer. A half-wall acts as a subtle separation from the spacious front family room and the foyer, which is made bright by a large window that lets in plenty of natural light. The thick carpet in this room helps define the space while adding contrast to the gorgeous weathered-wood-look laminate floor that runs throughout the rest of the main floor.


The central dining nook can accommodate a large gathering, while the kitchen with its island and breakfast bar is great for entertaining. The kitchen also serves up a handy pantry and soft grey cabinets that complement the white granite countertops and the black subway style backsplash, which matches the tile in the foyer.

The main floor features a niche by the stairs, providing room for a hall table or computer desk, as well as a mudroom and half-bath off the kitchen.

Upstairs, the master bedroom offers an inviting ensuite with a stunning wood-look tile feature wall, oversized walk-in shower and spacious walk-in closet. A main full bathroom, laundry closet and two generously sized secondary bedrooms complete the second floor.

Shane Homes has two additional paired showhomes in Hillcrest – the 1,560-sq.-ft. Eden III and the 1,576-sq.-ft. Trevean – and currently there are five spec homes available for immediate possession. The fourth paired model available to build is the 1,506-sq.-ft. Galea.
