Downsizers hit trifecta at Mosaic RiverstoneHomeowners don't have to sacrifice with new townhome development in southeast Calgary
The elusive trifecta of location, luxury and livability has long eluded downsizers in Calgary – until now.
Brookfield Residential has developed the Holy Grail of compact living with Mosaic Riverstone in Cranston's Riverstone, a 64-unit stacked luxury townhome development in southeast Calgary with two- and three-bedroom floor plans ranging in size from 1,400 to 1,600 square feet and priced from the mid-$400,000s.
"Cranston's Riverstone is an absolutely amazing and beautiful community," said Kelly Halliday, Brookfield Residential's business development manager for Calgary Homes.
"It's Calgary's best-kept secret. It's tucked away next to environmental reserves along the Bow River. It really connects you to nature like no other community does in the city."
Along with its desirable location, Mosaic Riverstone offers stylish designs and creative floor plans that allow people to downsize their housing needs without compromising on livability or luxury.
All homes include two-car garages, feature single-level living with spacious nine-foot ceilings and come with a choice of upper- or lower-level models.
"When we planned Mosaic Riverstone we really made sure we were including the features that people may be used to in their current homes." says Halliday. "So we offer hardwood and tile, soft-close cabinetry, granite or quartz countertops, tiled bathrooms – all of those things."
Mosaic Riverstone comes with a choice of three models:
• The Olive is exclusive to upper-level homes and features an open concept with galley-style kitchen. It is available in two- or three-bedroom layouts.
• The Slate is located on the lower level, and includes more than 1,400 square feet of space with a galley-style kitchen in a two-bedroom layout.
• The Hunter is offered on both upper or lower levels, and has a three bedroom layout that features a centre U-shaped kitchen.
All models feature large patios or balconies that span the entire width of the homes.
"There are tremendous patios on the lower homes, and a wonderful balcony on the upper homes," said Halliday. "So you have more than 200 square feet of added outside living space."
She added that storage is also generous in all the floor plans. That includes sizable basements that can also be turned into mini fitness rooms or artist studios, large kitchens, dedicated laundry rooms with side-by-side washers and dryers and large ensuites with loads of closet space.
"So people are not having to sacrifice the things they have in their current home," said Halliday.
While owners in Mosaic Riverstone may feel like they are hidden away in their own private oasis of Cranston's Riverstone, the location is still just a short drive to plenty of amenities. That includes easy access to Deerfoot Trail, Stoney Trail and 52nd Street S.E.
Cranston's Riverstone itself features schools and the retail/commercial Cranston Market. Nearby is also the emerging Seton Urban District, which includes the South Seton Hospital.
Residents of Mosaic Riverstone are included in the Cranston Residents' Association and have access to the community's Century Hall, a 22,000-square-feet facility, and surrounding seven-acre park with green space, a hockey rink, tot lot and splash park.
"The amenities are all there and they're growing," said Halliday.
Mosaic Riverstone is currently 65 per cent complete, meaning Brookfield is able to offer a flexible range of possession dates.
Many of the homes have been completed to the point of interior finishings, meaning buyers can make their own choices.
"We realize that picking selections and picking interior finishing is very important, so we have left these homes in a stage of construction where clients can still come in and pick their hardwood, pick their counters, pick their paint colours and then move in about 90 days later," said Halliday.
The Mosaic Riverstone sales centre is located at 98 Cranbrook Dr. S.E. and includes the Oilve and Slate show homes.
"Anybody who lives in Calgary and hasn't visited Riverstone yet needs to take the drive down into the valley," said Halliday. "It is absolutely beautiful and breathtaking. Everyone who sees it raves about the views."
The sales centre is open Monday to Friday from 2 to 8 p.m., Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from noon to 5 p.m.
