Limited time offer available at Legacy Gate
Legacy Gate condos by Carlisle Group in Westcreek Developments’ SE community of Legacy isn’t your traditional sales centre – it’s a gorgeous finished suite for sale. The limited time offer of free air conditioning and the number of fully complete condominium homes ready for immediate possession with price reductions of up to $37,000 are other cool features. “We have seven well laid-out floorplans,” says Carlisle sales rep Anna Franciotti, “with beautiful show suites to match.” Most units are two-bedroom or two-bedroom-plus-den, but there’s still a couple of three-bedroom, two-bathroom suites available. Condos range in size from 729 to 1,025 sq.-ft. and are suitable for families. “It really feels like the main floor of a house. All the bedrooms, in every model, will hold a queen size bed quite comfortably.” Standard features include a stainless-steel appliance package, granite countertops, and more. Prices start from $172,900 for a two-bedroom to $214,900 for a three-bedroom.
Homebuyers searching in Calgary’s deep south have plenty of options, and one of the best is Excel Homes’ Holland Park townhome development in Walden. “All of our homes are just under 1,200 sq.-ft.,” says area sales manager Grant Aberdeen. “They all have a full double garage and they’re all under $300,000.” Construction is currently underway on the first three buildings, with a final total of 133 homes when complete. Two different two-bedroom, two-bathroom models are available in this phase, with the show home demonstrating the kind of finishings owners can expect, including standards like quartz countertops, laminate and ceramic tile floors – all efficiently designed into a unique multi-level floorplan. “What you see is what you get,” says Aberdeen.
