May 30, 2018 | by QualicoCommunities
A great home design is one that can withstand time, evolve to meet new trends and adapt to keep up with an ever-changing market. The Laurier III from Broadview Homes successfully achieved all three of those goals and with a design that has been refined and repeated for nearly a decade, the beautiful home was recognized as the 2017 Best New Home, $255,000-$294,999 at the BILD Calgary Region Awards. To help explain what makes this home stand out in the community of Ravenswood, we spoke with Holly Patterson, the Senior Design Manager at Broadview Homes. Here, Holly provides us with some great insight as to why home buyers just can’t get enough of the gorgeous Laurier III Laned home.
When a home plan has been released in multiple models, you know it’s been a hit. With the Laurier plan, Broadview has never stopped evolving the model and it has continued to delight buyers. “It’s been a Broadview model that has evolved with a changing market over time, while retaining the original features that made it stand out nearly a decade ago” Patterson shared. “The initial idea was to capture big home features in a smaller starter home - think great entertaining spaces, a standout kitchen and ample storage.” The small features of the home have changed a bit over the years, but the Laurier, now in its fourth model, has always carried over the important aspects that buyers love in the home.
With a beautiful kitchen, ample storage and spacious mudroom, it's no surprise that the Laurier III continues to be so popular. The 1,541 square foot, 3 bedroom and 2.5 bathroom home also has a bright front great room, 10’ kitchen island, tons of cabinet space, walk-in pantry, gas fireplace, upper floor laundry room and master ensuite. However it is a lot more than the home’s general features that catch the eyes of buyers. “Definitely one of the best features of the Laurier is the open concept main floor. It’s the reason so many people love this home; it’s great for entertaining!” Explained Patterson. “The main floor of the Laurier is just so airy and bright. It allows each room to flow seamlessly into one-another, making you feel like you’re in a much larger home.”
It’s not just what’s inside the home that captivates buyers. First impressions count with a home and as Patterson highlighted, the Laurier III’s first impression makes a huge difference. “One of my favourite elements of the home has always been the exterior. No matter what home style or floor plan you choose, you’re getting a unique home with incredible, stand-out architectural detailing. It’s truly a home that immediately grabs your attention on the street.” It’s the combination of unique exterior architectural features and beautiful interior features that draw buyers in and gets their imagination going.
