Vibrant, inclusive communities are built to support families through various stages of life. Different sizes and floorplans will cater to different needs as a family grows through the natural cycles of life. The availability of a variety of homes ensures the longevity and livelihood of a healthy neighbourhood.
An excellent example is the Ovation award-winning 53 single-family-home community by HAVAN member, Miracon Development Inc. Located in Surrey, this development offers a variety of modern, manageable single-family homes. Ranging from 1,778 to 5,800-sq.-ft., four home sizes were created, including the opportunity to have a legal suite, mortgage helper or in-law suite to suit a wide range of families.
Home sizes are transitioned, from lower-density on the perimeter to higher-density within the development. The use of laneways eliminates front driveways and provides a safe community. Trees, shrubs, landscaping and over-sized sidewalks are master-planned to create a neighbourhood designed for recreation, walking and biking.
Conceived for today’s active family lifestyle in mind, with front-and-back outdoor living, the classic entry appears well established within a changing neighbourhood. The attractive west coast architecture, welcoming front porches, and well-planned landscaping integrate this new development into the surrounding existing, and the future-planned neighbourhoods.
Durable and low-maintenance products and materials are utilized throughout to support active families. Inspected and certified by building envelope engineers, all homes exceed building code requirements.
Custom-made trusses for vaulted ceilings, a 14-inch TGI flooring-system, gold-edged flooring, a garage, a driveway reinforced with rebar, a damp-proofed foundation, plus a Delta membrane are just some of the quality features built into each home for lasting endurance and durability.
Ultra-low VOC interior paint, LED lighting options, a hot-water recirculating system, an energy-efficient furnace – rated 93 per cent – plus energy-efficient argon-filled windows, a gas-fireplace with fan, certified Green-Label-Plus carpet, lifetime-residential-warranty, data Smartbox, and built-in USB outlets are features you can expect in these modern-built homes.
When looking for your next home, be sure to take into consideration the quality of the home and the vibrancy of the neighbourhood, too. To see this project and other Ovation-award winning homes visit ovation.ca
