The award-winning builder is demonstrating its Chapter 4 model in the southeast Calgary lake community of Mahogany. It has four bedrooms and a three-car garage.

Ceilings is an area of emphasis in different ways throughout the home. In the great room, thanks to an open-to-above design, the ceiling soars. This characteristic is known to deliver a feeling of luxury and promote creative thinking.

The corresponding towering walls creates space for many windows, an opportunity we see well-used in this room. There is also a full-height fireplace surrounded in stately stone.

Ceilings receive special treatment in the bonus room and master bedroom, as well. The master boasts a vaulted ceiling with use of beams to elevate visual interest even further. In the rear-facing bonus room, it’s an elegant tray-style design.

Among the home’s other eye-catching touches are arched entryways to spaces including the butler’s pantry, garage and master.

In the master, a striking barn door closes off its upscale ensuite and interconnected walk-in closet. The high note of this ensuite is a spa-inspired shower with full-height glossy tile.

On the opposite end of this space is an upscale free-standing tub beneath a chandelier. Two of the three walls surrounding this tub have a window, dousing it in natural light.

There’s also a vanity with two sinks, each with its own mirror, surrounded in a glossy tile backsplash.

One of the secondary bedrooms has an ensuite, as well. All secondary bedrooms are similar in size and are positioned side by side.

Within a step or two of these bedrooms is a full bathroom equipped with two sinks, supporting use by two children in the family at the same time.

On the main level, the L-shaped kitchen ticks a lot of boxes. People who prioritize storage space will be pleased, as will those who emphasize meal preparation. The latter is achieved through both a well-proportioned island and long stretches of counter space.

On an interior wall, there are open shelves, ideal for showcasing pottery or other small art pieces, photos and recipe books.
