Welcoming areas in which to sit and connect with family are at the heart of the Henderson — including an uncommon outdoor escape.
This 2,371-square-foot front drive model by Morrison Homes is demonstrated as a show home in the southwest Calgary community of Sirocco at Pine Creek.
In addition to its main floor great room and second level bonus room, is a courtyard deck. Facing the central kitchen, this 11 foot by 12 foot space, with pre-finished wood decking material — located on one side of the home — is accessed through a sliding glass door.
Featuring a fireplace and staged with outdoor furniture, it’s easy to imagine a family using this space to move their post-dinner conversation into the fresh air.
The outdoor fireplace is two-sided, with the other end a highlight in the rear-facing great room. Its indoor side delivers plenty of style, surrounded by a full-height ceramic tile backsplash in a variety of shapes and patterns. The same tile is also an eye-catching element in the master ensuite, which is otherwise focused on clean lines.
The ensuite has dual vanities with a glass shower featuring a striking black frame, deep soaker tub, and access to both a walk-in closet and laundry area with additional storage space.
Having these spaces all behind one door creates one fluid area in which to get ready in the morning.
The master bedroom in this show home also presents one of this model’s unique floor plan options. A space the floor plan dubs the lifestyle room is accessed from the master bedroom through double doors.
While it can function in several ways, based on its direct access from the master, a couple with a baby may see its value as a nursery.
The other two bedrooms sit side by side on the opposite end of the second floor. These bedrooms, which are similar in size, face a handy study loft. One of the bedrooms has charming bench seating next to one of three windows.
Centring the second floor is a bonus room with two tall windows and a bulkhead.
The main level is open and bright, starting right through the front door. It makes an entrance with a towering open to above feature.
A glass railing on the staircase adds to the feeling of openness and dispersion of natural light. This sunshine is largely drawn from the aforementioned courtyard deck along with substantial rear-facing windows in the great room and dining area.
The L-shaped kitchen boasts an eye-catching combination of colours, playing dark brown and white off of its black stainless steel appliances. Its appliance include a fridge with French doors and a chimney-style hoodfan. There’s also a full-height ceramic tile with a geometric pattern.
Its island, which has a sink, is square-shaped with an extended eating bar on two sides, allowing it to function like a second table.
The kitchen connects to a home management centre that leads to both a walk-in pantry and the garage.
