If you envision a peaceful, quiet middle-aged lifestyle, then The Chateaux at King’s Heights may be just what the real estate doctor ordered.
Recognizing a housing need for the gen-X population in Airdrie, Cove Properties offers up this two-building residence targeted at the 40-plus demographic.
The adult-living atmosphere is perfect for those wishing to escape yard work or just downsize, says Melanie Wood, Cove Properties director of sales.
“We’re also getting people who are moving here from outlying smaller towns because their kids and grandkids live in Airdrie. It’s basically a migration,” Wood says. “We did this ‘exclusively for the 40-plus’ building. We also did outside amenities with a gas fire pit and seating areas and really great landscaping.”
Located in the city’s southeast just off Yankee Valley and Kingsview boulevards, the 95-unit complex features secure, heated underground parking and individual storage units, as well as bike storage in the parkade.
Nine-foot ceilings decorate several fourth-floor suites and large, private balconies all include gas barbecue outlets.
Gourmet kitchens will please those channeling their inner Gordon Ramsay, with oversized, flat-surface eating bars and solid Shaker maple cabinets.
The Chateaux also boasts spa-inspired bathrooms with fully tiled, five-foot soaker tubs.
“The whole building is heated with radiant in-floor heating,” says Wood. “The exterior of the building is very high-end with acrylic stucco, brick and timber.
“It’s going to be beautiful, with a little bit of a rustic appeal to it, and fit right into the neighbourhood,” she adds.
Identifying the communal aspect of adult living, Cove Properties has added a social room to the design with card table, kitchen and seating area. This will connect to an outdoor seating area and fire pit.
The Chateaux offers floor plans with one- and two-bedroom options ranging from 768 to 1,239 square feet.
Prices range from $234,900 to $265,000 for two-bedroom units, with top floor apartments climbing to $380,000.
“If someone is really looking to downsize, or are on their own, the one-plus-den is a really great open floor plan. It makes sense for a lot of people in the lower price range,” says Wood.
Looking at possession dates in late 2016, Wood says that customers are appreciating the compact size of the stylish, charming two-building project.
“It’s a very small project,” she says. “We try to keep it small and elegant with bigger-sized suites and cater to people who are a little bit older.”
