Life in Laurel Crossing

Laurel Crossing is a great location for your family to put down roots. Set in the southeast part of Edmonton, the community has been designed with ample parks, green spaces, and trails throughout the space. This makes it easy for your family to get out and about. You’re also close to the popular Meadows Recreation Centre. At the same time, you have easy access to the Anthony Henday which makes for an easy commute no matter where in Edmonton you work. 

Family Connectedness

As soon as you drive up to the home, you’ll see it offers a lot of benefits. The two-car garage is extra-large, giving you space for storing bikes or holiday decorations. Inside, you’ll find a large and open entryway. Whether you’re inviting guests over for a birthday party or just bringing the family in after hockey practice, there’s enough space for everyone to come in and take off their jackets. There is also a convenient 1/2 bath before you enter the living space on the main floor.

The open-concept living area is just what you’ve been looking for. There’s an eating bar at the kitchen peninsula, but plenty of space for a table in the dining nook. You’ll love the amount of space in the corner pantry. It makes it easy to keep kitchen clutter out of sight. The great room on the other side of the home has a nice, open feel. 9 Ft. ceiling on the main floor also make this home feel more spacious and the whole back of the home is filled with light because of the transom windows over the patio door and 3 large windows.

Functional Second Floor

The second floor offers a generous master bedroom, two smaller bedrooms, and a full bathroom. It also features a laundry room to make it easier to wash and put away your family’s clothing. The double-door linen closet gives you extra space for towels, sheets, and anything else you might want to store out of sight, but the jewel on this floor is the cozy bonus room. Just right for the kids to play their games in or it can become an oasis from the world to read a good book.

The jewels on this floor are the cozy bonus room, just right for the kids to play in or you could use this as a home office or a get-away from the world to read a good book. The master suite, though, is a bit of an oasis. You’ll enjoy a large walk-in closet and a full ensuite. The ensuite has everything you’re looking for – a large vanity, a soaker tub, and a privacy door for the toilet.

Stylish Features

When you buy a brand-new home, you want it to have a stylish, modern look. Sterling Homes won’t disappoint. Expect to see beautiful quartz countertops on all of the counters in the home. You’ll also get a fashionable tile backsplash in the kitchen. Laminate floors throughout the main living area look great, but they’re also easy to take care of. You won’t have to worry about scratches or damage from spills. 

Of course, when you buy a Sterling home, you get to make a lot of the style selections on your own. You can select colours for carpets and walls, the types of cabinets in the kitchen, and even the doorknobs. Our expert Area Managers can help you decide what’s right for your family.

Additional Customizable Options

If you choose the Sahara, you can choose layouts that differ from the one you see in the show home. For instance, you could choose the standard layout and still have the upper floor laundry room and have room in the ensuite for double sinks. another option would be to have two bedrooms with suites rather than three bedrooms. This would be a good layout for a young professional looking for a roommate situation or for a family with a teenager.

If you need even more space, consider finishing the basement. This could add a fourth bedroom, a family room, and a storage space. A good Area Manager can help explain the customizable options with this home.

Living in a Duplex

The Sahara model is a duplex home, which means it shares a wall and driveway with another family. As you tour the showhome, though, you probably won’t even notice this. That’s because today’s modern techniques and designs give you all the privacy you’re looking for, even when you’re technically sharing a wall. The good news is this style of home is more affordable than detached homes while offering the same amount of space. We think you’re going to be surprised by how private it feels.

You can tour the Sahara at 1321 29 Street in the Laurel Crossing community. Come get a sense of what your life could be like in this beautifully-designed home.
