Considering itself the next generation of home builders, GableCraft Homes feels it will fit right in with the age demographic of a rapidly expanding Airdrie.
Primarily a Western Canadian developer with projects in B.C. and Calgary, the subsidiary of Pacific Capital Real Estate entered the Airdrie market with the unique Shoreline Villas located on Chinook Winds Place.
“We’re young, with an unstoppable passion, embracing innovation and design. At GableCraft Homes we make smart decisions that make homes better,” says Tiffany Ardolino, director of marketing and sales.” The Shoreline Villas are our first development in Airdrie and we really saw a need to provide single-level, main-floor-master homes for the community.”
From the street, size of the 22-unit villas can be deceiving. Although GableCraft produces the same refined floor plan in each home, the builder offers options of a finished walkout basement, complete with two bedrooms, bath and 980-square-foot media area.
Half of the units back onto walking paths and picturesque pond and include a 1,355-sq.-ft. main floor plan with master bedroom (including oversized en suite), den, 1.5 baths, and spacious kitchen and dining area.
“We design thoughtful, creative floor plan layouts that make a whole lot of sense. We are fastidious in our attention to the craft and detail of construction,” Ardolino says. “We choose neighbourhoods that are close to everything essential and we are dedicated to beautiful park-like landscaping. At GableCraft we make small choices that deliver big.”
Tucked behind Yankee Valley Boulevard, the villas start at $469,900 with the first homeowners moving in last spring. GableCraft targets a project completion date of this summer.
Ardolino says that the liveable walk-outs are naturally lit all day by large windows, including in both bedrooms.
“All of this interior space opens onto a large elevated deck overlooking water or park space. Oversized windows allow plenty of natural light in and beautiful views from all rooms in the home,” she says, adding that a full-size front drive two-car garage completes the main level.
Currently Shoreline Villas is GableCraft’s only entry into the Airdrie market, but the company also has 600 multifamily homes under construction in the Calgary area.
Ardolino says that GableCraft is definitely looking for more opportunities in the Airdrie market.
“Airdrie is vibrant and a wonderful city for families; we wanted to extend that opportunity to all generations,” she says. “Shoreline Villas allow homeowners to be closer to family and friends in Airdrie while downsizing into their dream home.”
