New Home Model Feature: The Sansa
Think that a brand-new traditional two-storey home is out of your price range? Think again! Sterling’s Sansa model is a large laned home with a price tag that starts at just $322,900. We’ve designed this home to be a bit bigger than most other laned homes — almost 1,500 square feet — and to feature everything that you’ve been looking for in your new home.
We think you’re going to love what you see! Let’s take a look at the awesome features you can expect in the Sansa.
Beautiful Curb Appeal
Unlike front-attached homes where the garage dominates the look of the house, the Sansa has a picture-perfect look. Large windows at the front of the home on both the first and second floors look great from the outside, and they’ll let a lot of natural light inside. The front porch will easily welcome visitors to your home.
This look is made possible because you’ll have a parking pad, with the ability to build a garage later, at the back of the home rather than an attached garage. Many people love this style because it’s just prettier.
Open Concept Living Area
The open floor plan of the Sansa is great for entertaining or just hanging out with the family. You’ll spend most days coming in through the door at the back by your parking pad, where there’s a closet area for your coats and other things. This leads right into the kitchen, making it easy for you to carry the groceries in and put them away.
You’ll love the quartz countertops in the kitchen, and the modern look and feel of the room. The centre island has an eating ledge where you can enjoy a casual meal or let the kids do their homework, but there’s plenty of space there for you to prep meals or layout appetizers for a party. It’s quite versatile. The elegant pendant light over the island provides soft lighting for your needs.
At the centre of the home, there’s a dining nook where you can place a table for family meals. Many people choose to save some space in this area by purchasing a smaller dining table that has leaves to make it expandable for larger family gatherings.
The great room can be easily set up how you want it, whether you prefer to have conversational areas for parties, quiet spaces for relaxing with a good book, or big comfy couches for the family to lounge on.
Comfortable Second Floor
The master suite sits at the front of the home with large windows that can allow you to wake naturally with the sun. You’ll get an ensuite with your own toilet, sink, and bathtub, so there’s no more sharing with the kids. And with a large walk-in closet, you can easily store all of your clothes outside of the bedroom area, giving you more space for additional furniture pieces, like a small chair.
The secondary bedrooms are at the back of the home. They’re equally sized and mirror images of each other, so the kids won’t fight over who gets which room. Sliding doors on the closets are space-savers. While they’ll have to share the bathroom on the second floor, it’s conveniently located.
Rounding out the second floor, you’ll find some features that aren’t available in every home. There’s a second-floor laundry with a side-by-side washer and dryer. You won’t have any trouble getting all your laundry done when you don’t have to lug heavy baskets up and down the stairs. You’ll also love the loft space that you can find up here. It makes a great casual space for your family to hang out in.
More Space to Meet Your Needs
Many families want more space in their homes that they can grow into, and you can get this extra space in the Sansa by choosing to finish the basement. That will add another bedroom — with a walk-in closet — a full bathroom, and a large recreation room. In most cases, it’s more affordable to finish this space than it is to buy a home with more square footage. Talk to an Area Manager about how this could fit into your budget.
With three bedrooms, the loft space upstairs, and the open-concept living area on the main floor, the Sansa model has a lot to offer today’s families. The model is currently available in the Graydon Hill and Cavanagh communities in the southwest part of Edmonton, and the incredibly family-friendly neighbourhood of Cy Becker in the northeast part of the city. Each of these locations is conveniently located to popular amenities and they will make for an easy commute anywhere in the city. Come see how comfortable your life could be in a new home.
