Are you looking for a great community to build your home in? Someplace that’s away from the hustle and bustle of the downtown Edmonton area but still close to all of the amenities you need?
Look no further than the up-and-coming community of SouthCreek. It’s set in Stony Plain, and it has plenty of features to support the needs of homebuyers at all stages of life. Keep reading to see if it’s the right community for you.
Home Styles for Everyone
The homes that we build in SouthCreek appeal to a wide range of buyers. Whether you’re looking to downsize or buy your first family home, you’ll find what you’re looking for.
Take, for example, the Solace model. It’s a 1-bedroom, 1060 square foot home with a stunning exterior that’s perfect for retired couples or young professionals. Everything you need for daily living is found in this single-storey home, including an ensuite and walk-in closet in the bedroom, a half bathroom for guests, an open-concept living area that’s perfect for entertaining, and a laundry room on the main floor.
The kitchen has design features like quartz countertops, a Silgranite sink with a pull down Moen “indie” chrome faucet, and a walk-in pantry. If desired, the basement can be finished to include an extra bedroom and play area for when the grandkids come to visit, or it can be turned into a legal suite for earning rental income.
The Stellar model, on the other hand, is great for a growing family. It has around 1,400 square feet of space and three bedrooms, with an option to add a fourth bedroom if you finish the basement. In this home, you’ll find plenty of family-friendly features such as a mudroom by the back door, a main floor laundry, and a bonus family room on the second floor. It also has the look you’re going for, with luxury vinyl plank flooring, quartz countertops, and a spa-like ensuite in the master bedroom.
The homes we’re building in SouthCreek are part of our Evolve series, which means they come with affordable price tags and a faster turnaround time for moving in. What could be better than this?
A Quiet Community with Potential
The SouthCreek neighbourhood is a quiet, residential neighbourhood. You can easily relax in your own backyard or take walks with the family. Young kids will especially like heading over to the playground where they can meet new friends. Older kids will like the open field for playing a pickup game of soccer or tossing a frisbee. And everyone can enjoy going for a bike ride on the trail around the storm pond.
Best of all, this is a fairly new community. When you choose to build your home in SouthCreek, you have the opportunity to see significant gains in equity once the community is finished.
With the trails, playgrounds, and open green spaces, SouthCreek gives its residents plenty of options for staying active without having to get in the car. However, you’ll soon see that there are other fun recreational destinations just a short drive away. The TransAlta Tri Leisure Centre, for instance, is just a few kilometres away, and they have things like exercise facilities, a pool, and programs for both kids and adults. Those who want to get active outdoors might like the Willow Park Natural Area or the Stony Plain Outdoor Pool and Spray Park (available in the summer). Golfers also enjoy meeting up with friends at the Stony Plain Golf Course. Clearly, there are plenty of options for staying fit.
You also won’t have to go far to get the shopping done. Popular stores like Safeway, Sobeys, and Shoppers Drug Mart are all nearby. That makes it easy to do the weekly grocery shopping trip, but you can also swing by the store for some milk or another missing ingredient on your way home from work. And if you’re looking for more unique items for gifts, you’re on the west side of Edmonton, so the West Edmonton Mall is less than 30 minutes away.
An Easy Commute
People choose SouthCreek because they want a quieter lifestyle, and we find that many residents here work nearby: in the schools, the stores, the medical centres, and other businesses that make up a community. However, some people do still work in downtown Edmonton, which is an easy 40-50 minute drive away, depending on where exactly you’re headed. And the airport and Nisku industrial area are also about 40 minutes away. No matter where you work, it’s easy to get there from SouthCreek.
We think you’ll agree that SouthCreek has a lot to offer families. Come take a tour to see if it is the right community for you.
