Edmonton's Best Showhomes: The Sanctuary in Secord Featured Image

Welcome to the Sanctuary– one of our latest show homes newly opened in the heart of Secord Heights. If you’re looking for inspiration for the ultimate family home, this eye-catching front-attached show home offers over 1,600 square feet of open living space with 9′ ceilings on both the main and upper floors, and beautiful features that can’t be beat! Let us tell you more…

A Thoroughly Modern Look

Approaching the front, you’ll instantly see this is the home for people who want to stand out from the crowd. With the sharp one-sided slant to the roof, it has a unique, modern design that bucks boring trends so typically seen in new home communities. The contrast between the darker colours that make up the main part of the home with the lighter decorative elements along the roof and windows complete the look.

Inside, design details like quartz countertops, a full-height faux brick tile backsplash in the kitchen, laminate and vinyl plank flooring, and 9′ ceilings on the main floor are sure to stop you in your tracks. You have to see it to believe it.

Entertain or Settle In

The first floor of the Sanctuary model has a layout that makes it perfect for entertaining. Guests can walk into a large entryway to take off boots and hang up coats, then head into the main open-concept living area. The kitchen is large, and set at the centre of the home. This is ideal for setting out drinks and appetizers for guests. 

The dining nook and great room both offer great features for entertaining. With proper seating arrangements, it has plenty of space for everyone on the guest list, especially on opening up the doors to the backyard.

Of course, the home is also designed for quiet family life. With a walk-in pantry, it’s easy to stock up on groceries when they’re on sale. While dinner is being prepared, the kids can work on their homework at the table in the dining nook. Parents will be close enough to easily offer them some help. Once dinner is over, the family can gather in the living room to watch a movie or play some games.

The Things You Need Upstairs

Families deserve modern comfort, and that’s what you’ll find in the Sanctuary’s upstairs bedrooms. The children’s rooms are set at the back of the home, and they’ll have plenty of fun setting the rooms up just the way they like. The shared bathroom is conveniently located just outside their rooms.

At the front of the home, the master suite has plenty of windows, making it possible to take advantage of the natural light that pours in from outside. The walk-in closet even has a window! Another jewel in the crown of the master bedroom is a coffer ceiling making the total ceiling height 10′ inside the coffer giving this gives the room a luxurious feeling. Not to mention, the master suite includes a generous three-piece ensuite. 

The upstairs laundry room has everything a family might need, including a wash tub, the washer and dryer, and space to hang clothes. A window in this room makes the task a bit more enjoyable. There is also a convenient workstation just off the central hallway, perfect of homework or art project or anything you want it for.
