Skylar Homes to bring 58 new townhome residences to Chestermere.
Chestermere, AB — An $11 million townhome project launches today in Chestermere’s Lake District. Located at 248 Kinniburgh Blvd., Skylar Homes will provide a much-needed influx of affordable homes to the City of Chestermere.
Only 22 kilometres east of downtown Calgary, Skylar Townhomes in Chestermere offers residents a year-round, luxury cottage lifestyle at an affordable price point. With homes ranging between $289,000 and $369,000, owners can enjoy close proximity to beaches and boating, while enjoying a short commute to Calgary.
“Based on our research, we saw a demand for more affordable housing in the Chestermere area,” said Peter Cheung, president of Alture Properties “We set out to build something that millennials and first-time home buyers can afford while benefiting from the lifestyle that Chestermere has to offer.”
Developed by Alture Properties and designed by BCW Architects, Skylar Townhomes are comprised of three-storey attached row townhomes. They range in size from 1,240 to 1,700 square feet and come in three different layouts with 2.5 bathrooms in both the two-bedroom and three-bedroom options. End units feature a double garage and interior units have a single garage.
Skylar Townhomes feature spacious, open floor plans, nine-foot ceilings and sound-dampened construction and materials to minimize sound transfer between units. Kitchens and bathrooms in Skylar Townhomes feature quartz countertops and each home is equipped with stainless steel Whirlpool kitchen appliances and Samsung washer and dryers.
2018 City of Chestermere census data shows a young city where home ownership is the norm, with 84.7 per cent of its 20,732 residents under the age of 60 and more than 85% of residents owning their homes. 74% of homes in Chestermere are single detached and 16.8% are duplex or townhouses.
