You don’t really have to be a potential homeowner or a real estate enthusiast to know of Homes by Avi’s latest offering in southeast Calgary, Winston at Walden. The new community has been garnering quite a lot of attention due in large part to some amazing features that are being offered at unbelievable prices. In fact, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that the community has set new standards of what homeowners deserve and should have as opposed to what was thought desirable before.
Just in case you are that one-off case who hasn’t seen, read or heard about it, Winston at Walden is a newly developed multi-family build in the community of Walden with a number of townhome designs and floor plans to suit just about every need you could imagine!
We decided to figure out what about these homes put the community on the map of potential homeowners so prominently. And so we visited the Hunter and Spencer townhomes that are currently on the market. Our visit and conversation with the folks at Homes by Avi led us to conclude that there are some (6 to be precise) exciting features you can get in a home even if it is in the lower range of $300K.
UNIQUE UPSCALE DESIGN
What do we mean by a unique design? The community is dotted with homes that feature a beautiful modern farmhouse vibe with industrial elements and bold colours on the exterior and an upscale, feature-rich interior as you can see in the pictures above.
ACTIVITIES FOR EVERYONE
Now, let’s think of things that are ‘nice’ to share proximity with. You’ll find golf courses and stables within a 10-min drive. Add another 4 minutes to reach the Bow River. Now here’s the best part, there are about 10 playgrounds and parks nearby, a number of trails for hiking and biking and a mere 30-minute drive to the Mountains for times when parks and trails are just not enough.
ROOM TO GROW
The homes come with undeveloped basements boasting high ceilings and large windrows. So, you can put your own spin on ‘em and can easily convert them into a bedroom & bathroom, a study, a studio, or even a rec room for the much-craved “me” time.
The first thing that comes to mind when talking yards is a cozy Sunday brunch with the fam on a bright, sunny morning. But if you thought that dream was a stretch for a $300K budget, you’d be happy to know that Winston at Walden homes come with private fully landscaped courtyards ready to add your patio set, potted plants or garden boxes – whatever suits your fancy for making your yard a delightful space for you and your guests.
STEPS FROM SHOPS, FITNESS CENTRES & TRANSIT
Let’s make a list of all the things we could want easy access to: Schools. Transit. Shopping Centre. Gym. Winston homes have you covered on every account and more. The Township Shopping Centre is a 3-min walk away meaning restaurants, grocery, pet store, salon and spa and even banking errands are a walk in the park (pun intended). Then there are the schools, 3 of them and each 4-min drive away. And lastly the Transit stops that are 2-5 mins walk away ensuring your connectivity to the rest of the city including downtown.
PLACE PERFECT FOR FURRY FAMILY MEMBERS
This is, by far, the most important one for us, and many others we believe. We want our furry fam to be just as happy and well adjusted in a home as we are. And Winston with its large area, private courtyard and nearby parks and trails is a perfectly pet-friendly community.
Now, we can’t promise that you’ll get all these features in every Calgary home under $300K but you sure can get it at Winston in Walden. So, without further ado, head over to their website and book a viewing.
