The Evolve Series: The New Assurance Model
We’ve designed the homes in our Evolve series to be both attractive and affordable, and there’s perhaps no home that exemplifies this more than our new Assurance model. With 2,263 square feet of living space and the possibility of up to 7(!) bedrooms, the Assurance offers everything your family could want in a home with a starting price that’s well below $500,000.
Learn more about this sure-to-be-popular model to see if it’s the right design for your family.
Main Floor for Family Living
The convenience of this floor plan starts with the enormous mudroom at the entrance from the attached garage. Here, there’s a bench to make it easier to put on little shoes and plenty of storage space for a large family. Drop off the groceries on your way through the walk-through pantry that leads to the main living area.
You’ll instantly notice how elegant the home feels in the main living area, with 9’ ceilings above your head and luxury vinyl plank flooring beneath your feet. The open concept living space includes the kitchen, dining nook, and great room. You can just imagine your family hanging out here every day.
The Assurance also includes a bonus room on the main floor – it’s a perfect home office space for those who work from home. However, Sterling also offers the possibility of turning this room into a first-floor bedroom with an ensuite. This is a great choice for families looking for a “forever home” who might not want to worry about climbing up and down the stairs in their Golden Years.
At Sterling, we’re all about letting you choose the design of your home, and so in addition to the possibility of a first-floor bedroom suite, we also give you the opportunity for a kitchen or garage upgrade with this model. Ask an Area Manager how these could make the home perfect for you.
Spacious Second Floor
At the landing of the second floor, you’ll find a great bonus room for your family. Many of our customers use this space as a more casual living room: a place where you won’t have to worry about the clutter when guests drop by unexpectedly. It might also be a good place for teens to hang out or could be turned into a study space for the kids.
There are four bedrooms up here, which is plenty of space for most large families. In fact, you may even have more bedrooms than you need, allowing you to provide your guests with a comfortable space of their own. The master suite is particularly nice, with an oversized walk-in closet and a spa-like ensuite that has a separate shower and soaking tub, side-by-side sinks, and a privacy door for the toilet.
These things alone could be the ideal layout for your family, but we’ve upped the ante by including a laundry room on the second floor. Imagine the convenience of being able to get the laundry done and put away without having to walk up and down the stairs.
Beautiful Basement Possibilities
Many families choose to leave the basement unfinished, giving them some space for additional storage and maybe a place for the kids to run around when the weather is cold and snowy. However, we also offer a variety of choices for those who are looking to finish the basement.
For instance, we could design this space with a bedroom, a media room, a full bathroom, and a large family room. We can even turn the space into an income suite or an in-law suite that has a separate entrance. This option comes with two bedrooms and a nice, open area with a kitchen and living room. You could use the money that you earn from your tenants to pay off your mortgage quicker or reduce the amount you have to spend each month.
Surprisingly, finishing the basement doesn’t add much to the overall cost of the home. You may find that it’s the most cost-effective way to get the space you need. Talk to an Area Manager to see how a finished basement would affect your monthly mortgage payment.
The Assurance model is available in many of our most popular communities, including Cy Becker, The Uplands at Riverview, and Secord Heights. If you’ve been looking for a home with a lot of space, the Assurance is the one for you. Come check it out today.
