On June 22, our two new Artesia showhomes by Brookfield Residential opened with a blooming good time at a garden themed party on location in Artesia. Hundreds embraced the season and gathered over drinks and snacks, took selfies against a wall of greenery that paid homage to the perfect summer day and tried their hand at arranging bouquets in a floral workshop.
These community residents and curious Calgarians were met with surprise at the beautiful and distinct show homes: The Catania and The Imperia.
There was lots of happy chatter about the community, the layout, flow and designs of the homes as well as the fun decor touches from the “Wash Me” tile mosaic on the bathroom floor to the pick-up trunk lid artwork in one of the studies.
Let’s explore the features of Brookfield’s two new showhomes.
Inspired Bungalow Living: The Beauty of The Catania
Bungalows are now more popular than ever. The demand comes from the appeal of main-floor master bedrooms with carefree access to formal living, den and kitchens.
The Catania is 1,654 square feet of relaxed luxury on the main floor. Its great room features a glistening tile floor-to-ceiling gas fireplace with expansive windows to the pond and pathway views. Natural light shines throughout the main living space! The adjacent kitchen and eating area are wonderful for easy living and entertaining. Its master bedroom is oversized with a stunning en suite bathroom and walk-in closet.
There is more! A gently tiered and dramatically framed stairwell leads to the additional bedrooms, family room and wine cellar at walkout level. The triple car garage is a bonus for added storage and to accommodate vehicles, gardening gear and bikes, for those seeking a little weekend exploration.
When it came to feel and ambiance, Brookfield Designer Chloe Leung opted for industrial style, an urban loft look and top to bottom modern comfort. Take note of the masterfully crafted wood and tile flooring around the wine cellar and wet bar. Keep an eye out for the cowboy chic home office that acts as a mini-man cave! Ideas that inspire!
Thoughtful Design Comes to Life: Let The Imperia Shine
Room to roam and relax, workout and wind-down! Imperia’s 2,700-square feet on the upper levels are met with a bonus of 900 square feet of well-utilized space in the finished basement, complete with a boxing gym!
Upstairs, the owner’s suite has an elegant master bath and wonderful wardrobe — all the feel and features of a self-contained sanctuary. Family is always close with a bonus room to gather, handy laundry room and two more bedrooms on this level. The main floor makes cooking, dining and entertaining a dream as the communal dining table flows seamlessly to the dual-island kitchen and great room beyond. The 208 square foot deck is covered for shade and serenity. The home office is spacious with a powder room close by, just off the portico entry with vaulted ceilings. Again, a triple car garage is standard! This one includes a 1000 square foot workshop for tinkering hobbyists or car buffs.
Designer Maria Serpico knows the importance of the right light in the right place for atmosphere and warmth. Champagne bronze modern chandeliers add the wow-factor! Be dazzled by the bedside lamps that range from feathery fun in the girl’s room to chic and shiny chrome in the main rooms. Love the pantry and the mudroom for practical storage and easy maintenance. Its thoughtful design come to life!
Make a House Your Own. Make a House a Home!
Once you decide the location and community feel of Artesia speaks to you and your family, the process of buying and building here is made easy by the Brookfield Residential team. With the release of new ridge and pond view lots in Phase 4, now is the ideal time to explore your options.
It starts with the Discovery Process. Once you put a hold on your lot of choice, it’s time to start to design your dream home through our semi-custom process – with a focus on reviewing plans, discussing options and touring the design centre called “The Studio.” See and review everything that is included with the purchase of an Artesia estate home. Once this stage nears completion, your purchase agreement is signed and an appointed interior designer works with you throughout the entire build process.
Within about a year’s time, the keys are yours and it’s time to plan your own opening celebration! After the success of our opening event, we know flowers and cocktails are always a crowd pleaser!
