Corner lot offers unique opportunity in Aspen Ridge

What do you do with a corner lot in Aspen Ridge? If you’re Red Lion Developments you pull out all the stops for an executive two-storey show home with loads of street appeal.

“We did something different on this corner lot,” says Chris Fomradas, owner of Red Lion Developments. “We stretched it all out, so it wasn’t the typical three-car garage all in front. It has a lot more street appeal than your typical house with three-car garage.”

The home is 2,443-square-feet of luxurious finishings with a three-car garage. As soon as you enter, you are struck by the modern design of the custom wood staircase. The extra-wide stairs, oversized windows and clear glass railings allow tons of natural light to flood the home from what is normally a dark space. It also showcases the routing details on the side and maple handrails.

“They call it a rake-back design. If you look at it from the side, the risers are not at a true 90-degree angle. It gives it more of a waterfall look,” explains Fomradas.

The kitchen is wide with tons of storage. Deep, wide drawers provide homes for pots, pans, and small appliances. The cabinets are finished in a glossy white which contrasts with the black stainless-steel appliances and range hood.

The tile backsplash is something unique to Red Lion. The tiles are accented with mirrored elements, with a hint of a grey geometric design. Combined with the black and white granite countertops, the result is a sleek, contemporary look.

On the other side of the great room, a fireplace with real stone surround and an entertainment area – create a focal point. Cords for the television, DVD player or other devices have already been dropped into the wall behind, meaning no unsightly cords hanging down.

As well, the room is equipped with a small bar area, wine fridge, wine rack, and wine glass storage. The area could also work well as a coffee station with counter space for a coffee maker, drawers for your coffee pods, and storage for your favourite mugs.

Upstairs two extra-large bedrooms are joined by a Jack-and-Jill bathroom with a distinctive Red Lion touch – the bathtub and toilet are in a separate water closet. This means someone will still have access to the vanity – with tons of storage space, wide mirror, and granite top – to get ready while another person showers.

The master bedroom comes with a spa-like ensuite. The soaker tub faces a small torch fireplace with stone surround, and the glass-enclosed shower features body jets, rain showerhead, and electronic controls.

Fomrades prides himself on the attention to detail, such as the floating toilet and vanity in the guest powder room – allowing for quick and easy cleaning. Or how each bathroom with a shower is outfitted with a humidity sensing fan that will turn on automatically to remove excess moisture.

That same technology is utilized in the garage to keep the garage from getting musty over time. The goal is a house that feels like home and functions at its peak, not just when you move in, but years later, according to Fomradas.

The Red Lion show home at 334 Fast Court will be open for viewing today and Sunday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
