I have listed a new property at 156 Sunset SQUARE in Cochrane. See details here
How do you value a jewel of a property? You compare it to other gems. of course because villas like this are very rare. For villas of similar age, and outstanding views, let's use Watermark Villas just west of Calgary as our comparison. Over the last year, Watermark Villas have ranged in price from $760,000-$1,030,000, for a variety of floorplans ranging from 975-1325 sq.ft. They were built starting in 2013. They have incredible mountain views and beautiful interior finishing! This property, 156 Sunset Square in Cochrane, was BUILT IN 2011 (by Calbridge Homes). It too has SENSATIONAL MOUNTAIN VIEWS (even from the basement level) and beautiful interior finishing. It feels a lot like Watermark. But this villa is 1348 sq.ft. on the main level plus a loft for a total of 1992 sq.ft. above grade! Also, Sunset Square has NO CONDO FEES., just a low HOA fee so grass and snow are taken care of. The streets are wider here than most villa developments which is great for loading up your RV. GREAT CURB APPEAL, feels like Banff or Canmore with extensive use of exterior 'river stone'. This beautiful villa comes with a COVERED WALKWAY and front porch, and an attached double garage (with EPOXY flooring and plenty of storage). The main level layout begins from a front entry with office, or from a mudroom entry with plenty of storage cabinets. Walk through the 'BUTLER PANTRY' (your 'appliance garage') to an absolutely gorgeous kitchen! STONE counters. GAS stove. STAINLESS STEEL appliances and vent-hood. Dove-tail drawer construction. 'EBONY and IVORY' coloured cabinets. The island is darker with BEAD-BOARD panelling and 'furniture kicks'. The rest of the kitchen has crisp white cabinets, extended to the ceiling, even floor-to-ceiling in two locations. So much NATURAL LIGHT from the west windows! HIGH CELINGS in the living room where you have a beautiful fireplace with STONE SURROUND, mantel. fluted columns and built-ins. Enter the primary bedroom and discover your own OASIS RETREAT in the ensuite bathroom with double sinks, a cozy corner tub, and a very elegant full-tiled shower, plus a spacious walk-in closet. Walnut HARDWOOD and TILE flooring throughout the ENTIRE MAIN LEVEL! Check out this AMAZING LOFT which overlooks the living room and out the back windows. The loft has a bedroom with another ensuite bathroom plus a library or tv room! Fantastic floor plan. Of course, the BASEMENT is also BEAUTIFULLY FINISHED with another bedroom (currently a 'hobby room'), a highly upgraded bathroom, and a family room with a fireplace surrounded by more stonework. Total of 3 bedrooms plus den and 3 and a half baths. Also included: Basement bar. Back deck with vinyl surface and glass railing, plus a lower patio. Coloured-concrete garden borders. Oversized water heater. Subfloor under basement finished areas. Fans on both fireplaces. Built-in speakers in the basement. Storage room with sink. Elegant window shutters. In this case, seeing is believing!
