Seton is fast shaping up to be Calgary’s City of Tomorrow, and Cedarglen Homes is making sure it is a future everyone can enjoy with their exciting line of stylishly affordable, innovatively designed single-family homes.
Seton’s reputation as the city’s “Downtonwn South” is attracting an expanding range of homebuyers, and Cedarglen is hitting all the marks with its equally varied selection of single-family homes, including paired homes, front drive homes and its new M Series bungalows.
“Our product offering in Seton is diverse and has options for every lifestyle,” says Allison Harvie, Cedarglen Homes’ sales and marketing manager.
“Cedarglen Homes is fortunate to offer three unique market segments, which compliment one another. Whether you are buying your first home or your last, Cedarglen Homes can accommodate your needs with the market segments we are building here in Seton,” she adds.
Cedarglen recently opened new show homes in this dynamic new community in the southeast, including a new front-drive two storey home for the move-up market, and the very popular M Series bungalows that offer a new, affordable single-level living option. “Our paired homes are also open and we have new lots available,” she adds.
Brookfield Residential, Seton’s developer, is coming through on its promise to make the community a modern, sustainable, self-reliant community with all the live-work-play aspects of life contained within. It is an important employment hub in the region that includes the massive South Health Campus hospital, as well as an entertainment and recreational centre that has the 300,000 square-foot Brookfield Residential YMCA at Seton, the largest of its kind in the world.
There is already a high school in the community, and various retail and commercial spots – not to mention the parks and pathways – that make it a complete lifestyle-oriented community.
And it is in this singular environment that Cedarglen chose to launch its groundbreaking M Series of bungalows.
“Seton was the right community to introduce the M Series because of the proximity to the shopping, hospital and other services,” Harvie says. “We felt that that this style of home best supported an empty nester demographic which there are limited options for in the Calgary market.”
The M Series presents bungalow living like never before. A versatile single-level lifestyle that can fit the needs of a wide range of buyers – from those who like the idea of an aging-in-place home, to those looking for freedom from the rental cycle, to those looking to scale down from homes that no longer suit their needs.
Best of all is the freedom it still gives to homeowners as a single-family home. Owners remain the master of their domain, with no shared walls and their own yards, their own property.
“They are affordable, they have the right size, and gives residents the autonomy of a single-family home,” Harvie says. Think of it as a stand-alone apartment with the flexibility to develop a basement.
There are four models available in the M Series, all are two-bedroom homes ranging in size from 899 to 937 square-feet, with optional single- or double rear detached garages. There are only 12 M Series lots available currently in Seton.
“The product development was less about price point than it was providing a single-family space for those there were not looking for a large home but still wanted the flexibility to personalize the floor-plan to suit their needs,” she adds. “To date we identified that the product appeals to all demographics but is focused on a more mature buyer who has roots in Calgary but may have a vacation home somewhere else.”
Cedarglen’s area manager for Seton, Dennis Mullen, agrees. “Feedback for the M Series has been great. These homes fill a void in the market for buyers looking for affordable independent living without having to go into a condo. The customization that Cedarglen Homes allows takes it a step further for people who have specific needs, whether it be mobility requirements or just from a design perspective.”
He adds that a lot of young families are choosing to call Seton home, and Cedarglen’s prices have proven to be pretty attainable. The M Series start at $339,900, $379,900 for paired homes and $439,900 for our single family move up homes.
