Emery makes most of its spacious design

With enough square footage, not only does every space feel generous, but there’s room for extras in the floor plan, as well.

People in the market for a duplex can get nearly 2,000 square feet in the Emery by NuVista Homes. This three-bedroom model is displayed as a show home featuring charming Foursquare exterior architecture in the new southwest Calgary community of Sirocco at Pine Creek.

Reaching 1,957 square feet, this home welcomes features that are uncommon to laned duplexes, while not cutting back on the staples.

On the main level, one example is its front-facing flex room. Based on the homeowner’s needs, this 10-foot by 11-foot eight-inch space can be used for a variety of purposes.

In the show home, it’s staged as a home office. Others may choose to use it as an art studio, craft room, or children’s toy room.

The second level is elevated by a centrally located media suite. Demonstrated with furniture and a TV, it’s an ideal spot to enjoy a series on one’s favourite streaming service after dinner. It also functions as a buffer between the rear-facing master bedroom and side-by-side children’s bedrooms up front.

The master bedroom is highlighted by a spacious walk-in closet and bright, elegant ensuite. Featuring a large glass-encased shower, soaker tub, and dual vanities beneath a full-width mirror, this ensuite is an inviting space in which to get ready or relax.

Just outside the master bedroom is a laundry area with a front-load washer and dryer, making it convenient to do a wash and put the clean load of laundry away.

The main level has airy nine-foot ceilings and features an open-concept design. Well-sized windows in the rear-facing great room and multiple box-shaped windows on a side wall in the dining area fill the main floor with sunlight.

The kitchen boasts long stretches of stone counters, including an island with a sink and extended eating bar that seats at least three people. It has a full-height backsplash, pantry, and stainless steel appliances, including an over-the-range hoodfan.

Both the front and rear entrance to the home are designed with comfort in mind. The foyer is wider than average, making way for multiple people to enter and remove shoes and coats without feeling cramped. At the rear entrance, a bench and lockers make it easy for the children of the family to organize and store their school gear and outerwear.

The show home presents the optional developed basement, which has a large bedroom, bathroom, den, and rec area.

Expected to eventually see more than 3,500 residents, the 71-hectare Sirocco at Pine Creek is a new master-planned community by Anthem United. Golfers will appreciate the community’s proximity to a range of courses, including the Sirocco Golf Club just down the road.

Families will also enjoy outings to Spruce Meadows and Granary Road, which are each less than a 10-minute drive away.
