Morrison Homes’ Westport II features kitchens II

There’s just not one single thing that stands out in Morrison Homes’ Westport II, its newest showhome in Cornerstone, says Alina Wegener, area manager.

“It’s everything,” says Wegener. “It’s hard to pick just one feature, but if I had to, it would be the kitchens. We truly made this stunning area the heart of the home. It was designed to be the place where everyone comes together, plus who wouldn’t want to have two kitchens in the home to make storage, preparation and clean-up quicker and more private, which is great for keeping the entertainment area tidier and clutter free.”

The multi-storey Westport II is a multi-generational home, with not just two kitchens, but four bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a basement ready for a secondary suite and a double-attached garage.

“You enter in to a private grand foyer that has a flood of natural light, opens up to high ceilings and a beautiful staircase. Take a few steps in after you’ve taken it all in and you’re guided in to the main living space,” says Wegener, adding her favourite space is bright, clean and inviting.

“We think it’s a cook’s dream kitchen, actually, in this case, kitchens. We used the same quartz for the backsplash as our counters. Not only does it flow flawlessly throughout the kitchens, it’s also practical because it’s so much easier to wipe down and clean after cooking. No more grease stains getting stuck in the grout lines.”

The home also features a dedicated walk-in pantry off the spice kitchen for keeping dry goods, cooking utensils and smaller appliances tucked away neatly without having to clutter the main kitchen.

Little touches add space.

“After seeing a large demand in built-ins, we couldn’t help but include a beautiful built-in hutch that not only saves space, but it provides tons of storage and extra seating,” says Wegener. “It becomes the focal point in the dining area as natural light highlights the clean lines from the large outside window facing the backyard.”

Upstairs is a bonus room and main floor office/den space with options for personalizing space, and you’ll want to check into the master, says Wegener.

“It feels like you’re at a luxury hotel, but that luxury is in your home,” she says. “It checks a lot of boxes for everyone. Large walk-in closet, large bedroom space to fit a king-size bed, night stands, dressers and still have a lot of room. The beautiful spa bathroom includes a soaker tub and a walk-in shower, so couples don’t have to compromise between one or the other.”

And, there’s more.

“This home was designed with our homeowners in mind. It’s practical and functional. Our homeowners want to have the large space, not wasted space, in an open concept,” says Wegener. “In our homes, every nook, every corner and every hallway serves a purpose.

“All of our homes come with the SMART home system: Wi-Fi programmable thermostat, doorbell camera and five smart switches.”
