Edmonton Community Feature: The Best of Silverstone
If you’re tired of the hectic lifestyle that comes from living close to a major city, it’s time for you to start thinking about moving elsewhere. Sterling Homes is currently building in the community of Silverstone, located west of Edmonton in Stony Plain. It’s a great choice for families who are looking to put down their roots.
With family-friendly design and a quiet atmosphere, keep reading to see what your life could look like if you choose Silverstone for your new home.
Gorgeous Community, Premium Choices
Silverstone has been designed to incorporate features that today’s buyers want. It’s not nearly as large as some of the developments closer to the city, and this gives the community a close-knit feel. You can quickly see how you’ll be able to get to know all of your neighbours, and the kids will never be lacking for playmates. Even better, the neighbourhood is bordered by an environmental preserve on the east and a large park to the west. Both of these are easily accessible by foot no matter where in the community you build.
And since Silverstone is a relatively new community, you’ll have your pick of premium lots. For instance, you could choose a place that looks out over the environmental preserve or park area. You could have a place that backs onto the park so you can easily send the kids out to play. You can even choose a pie-shaped lot to get a bigger backyard for those barbecues you’ve been dreaming about. It’s all up to you.
The Home Styles You Want
In Silverstone, we’re building homes that appeal to all types of families. The Asset is a popular choice for those who are looking for an affordable option. It has almost 1,600 square feet of living space that includes an open-concept living area on the main floor. The eating lip on the island gives you a casual place for breakfast, and the enormous walk-in pantry gives you plenty of space to store food and small kitchen gadgets. Upstairs, you’ll find three bedrooms, a laundry room, and even a bonus second living room. Parents will enjoy the master suite, which has a spa-like ensuite and a nicely sized walk-in closet.
Looking for a lot more space? We’ve got you covered with the Jannat model. It has over 2,600 square feet of living space and up to six bedrooms without even finishing the basement. The basic plan includes features like a bedroom and sitting room on the first floor, and a bonus room and laundry room on the second floor. The Jannat is also quite unique in that there are a large number of alternate plans available. For instance, you could include a spice kitchen, two master bedrooms, or a larger laundry room. This home is a great option for multigenerational families.
Plenty of Nearby Amenities
Though you’re out of the city, you still have easy access to the type of amenities you need for daily living. Shop for the things you need at Safeway, Sobeys, or Shoppers Drug Mart. Pick up some food at a big chain restaurant or any of the smaller, locally-owned places. Play a round of golf at the Stony Plain Golf Course or get a good workout at the TransAlta Tri Leisure Centre. And for your health needs, the Westview Health Centre is just across the street.
You can find everything you need in the established, but growing community of Stony Plain.
A Great Selection of Schools
If you have kids – or are planning to have some in the future – you’ll be happy to know that there are plenty of great schools nearby. Most kids attend the local public schools, which include Forest Green Elementary, Stony Plain Central, and Memorial Composite High School. Each offers the solid education that you’re looking for. At the same time, it’s nice knowing that most of the other kids in your community will be going to the same schools. It will be easy for your kids to make friends at school and then see them again in the evening to play since you live in the same area.
A Convenient Daily Commute
A lot of people who choose a community in Stony Plain do so because they already work in the area. It’s nice when your commute is just 10-15 minutes away. And these days, many employers are allowing people to work from home at least some of the time. However, if you do need to commute to Edmonton, you won’t have to go far. It takes less than 30 minutes to get to West Edmonton and around 40 minutes to get to the downtown area. The airport is also about 40 minutes away, so there’s no stress for early morning flights.
The community of Silverstone has plenty to offer families who are looking for a comfortable lifestyle. Come check out the area and talk to one of our Area Managers about how you can make this neighbourhood your own.
