A Winning Combination for Calgary Buyers

For many Calgarians, small town living in the big city seems to be the Holy Grail of homeownership. Combining the best of both worlds, the appeal of pairing the charm of a rural community with all the vibrancy and amenities of an urban setting is one that's tough to beat.

By following that exact recipe, with a sizable dash of quality craftsmanship, the folks at Cardel seem to have cooked up yet another winning development in Elgin Village. Part of the company's Courtyard Collection, which boast a double-rear attached garage, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and a fully sodded landscaped yard in a "courtyard concept" setting for indoor/outdoor living, Cardel's Elgin Village offers an attractive combination of living styles.

"You've got your Southern California in Alberta [with the] outdoor/indoor living space which is in the middle of the house," says Sue Hussein, community sales manager for Cardel. "The landscaping is done, your deck is included, so it's not like your regular presale homes where you move in and, if you didn't build a deck through the builder, you'd have to do that and finish your landscaping – this is just one shot Just show up and bring your clothes."

Cardel's Camden Court adds another attractive feature for homebuyers in the form of affordability, with prices starting in the $380s. In addition to those features in the home, the price also includes some serious amenities outside as well.

Situated just minutes away from McKenzie Towne's High Street – a community renowned for its classic old-town atmosphere including a town square, a clock tower and a thriving main street, each "village" in the neighbourhood is planned around a central park. The more than two-hectare Elgin Hill is a draw for neighbourhood kids who congregate atop the 300-ft-long toboggan run in the winter, an ideal attraction for Calgary's winter months when

"It's a super family friendly neighbourhood," says Hussein. "You can walk to all your amenities. There's High Street, the walking paths and Inverness Pond – and there are tot lots everywhere."

With only nine lots left, Hussein says the combination is proving to be a hit with Calgary buyers.

"The response has been fantastic. We did do these homes in Quarry Park. They've been very successful there and we have limited lots available, so hurry up."
