Keswick Luxury Homes: Edmonton’s Newest Community

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014
Imperial Home: Keswick Community

This is one of the many homes planned for Keswick by MLC Land Edmonton

Here in Edmonton, we’ve been blessed with the sheer beauty of luxury communities, mature and new.

Just last year, a new lush, natural and beautifully designed luxury development was announced. It was planned on a scale that this city has rarely seen—a community set along the pristine corridor of the North Saskatchewan River. It gets accolades from designers, sellers and buyers alike.

Welcome to the southern Edmonton community of Keswick (pronounced Kezz’-ik).

On the southwestern stretch of the river, parallel to Ellerslie Drive, and west of 170 Street, you will find one of the finest vestiges of prime riverfront left in Edmonton. Named after a beautiful lake district in England, Edmonton’s Keswick properties bring the same luxurious living and sophisticated design. The land management was developed with sustainability and longevity in mind using a wide array of native plants and waterways that protect both riverbanks and homeowners alike.

Homeowners in Keswick have no problem getting anywhere in the city because of the access to the Anthony Henday ring road. The Ellerslie Road access also enables drivers to get to Southgate Mall, South Edmonton Common, and the Currents of Windemere shopping districts.

For avid golf fans, Keswick enjoys three nearby golf courses, allowing for even more leisure time close to home. The Whitemud Creek, River Ridge and Windemere Golf and Country Clubs are excellent options for serious or novice players alike.

Keswick offers easy access throughout the city.

Access to these lifestyle amenities are what make the Keswick community so appealing to Edmonton luxury homebuyers. The mixture of single and multi-family homes adds diversity to the community, bringing families of all sizes and ages to the riverfront. Sound planning and design decisions were made by some of Edmonton’s leading builders and developers. Some of them include:

  • Cameron Homes
  • Landmark Homes
  • Pacesetter Homes
  • Aacropolis Estates

The Keswick neighbourhood merges sophisticated simplicity and timeless tradition in design while still letting nature breathe throughout the community. It’s a jewel like nothing we’ve seen in Edmonton, and we recommend that if you’re seeking an Edmonton luxury home, look no further than Keswick on the River. Both Valleyside and Estate properties are available, and as Phase 2 gets rolled out this year, it will be much easier to find and buy the home you desire.

And if you have any questions about properties in Keswick or other south Edmonton Homes, be sure to get in touch.

 

Edmonton Luxury Landscapes: More than Curb Appeal

Monday, June 23rd, 2014

edmonton-luxury-landscapes

Among the luxury homes in Edmonton, owners are coming up with creative ways to plan and use their outdoor spaces. Many have already created spaces that are refined, luxurious and harmonious with their lifestyles. Having a space that complements the look and feel of a luxury home is important, but new trends suggest that there is more at play when it comes to making the right decisions for your outdoor spaces.

1. Outdoor Design Brings Value

It might be alarming to hear that many people still think that designing and creating an outdoor living space means arranging some trees and shrubs and picking up a patio set from a furniture designer or department store. With Edmonton’s short summers (and harsh winters), taking the time and resources to build a luxury outdoor space might seem, well,  extreme. But a well designed outdoor area can add considerable value to a property. Some estimate that as much as 20% of the overall value can be added to your home, with a 100-200% recovery value when you sell your property. Very few home improvements generate those high returns.

2. Outdoor Landscaping Brings Harmony

I’ve seen my share of grand designs, and they can be dramatic at first glance. But it gets awkward when visitors and guests realize that the space lacks harmony. One of the most easily overlooked details of luxury outdoor design is also one of the most obvious when it’s done incorrectly. Professionals help to plan out the placement of softscape (trees, shrubs, grasses) and hardscape (walls, water features, sculptures and walkways) to best balance the harmony of the area and the activity of homeowners and guests.

3. Outdoor Spaces Should be Versatile

One of the advantages of planning an outdoor living space is that you get ot ask the difficult questions right up front.

“How can I get use of my outdoor space in October or November, when we know that there will be snow on the ground?”

“What activities do I want to be able to perform while entertaining? Do I want to cook while still being able to attend to my swimming guests?”

A seasoned landscape planning professional will look at these questions, not as constraints, but as possibilities. Ultimately, the activities that you plan for you and your guests is critical in determining what will end up where.

Before anyone begins landscaping or even planning their outdoor space, I suggest that they think about what it is that they want to do with their outdoor space, and how they want to use it. The great thing about building an outdoor living space is that it has a very good chance of returning value, so take the time and energy required to make it exactly how you want it.

If you’re looking for a luxury home in Edmonton, or you are looking to sell your luxury home, get in touch. I’d love to have a conversation.

      • A Rustic Style blends raw natural beauty with earthy elements for a rugged organic feel. This style is common among Edmonton homeowners who want to add a touch of cabin-inspired decor to their Million Dollar homes. Look for wooden furniture, weathered materials, and warm earthy colours.
      • The Eclectic Decorating Style is popular among free-spirited Edmonton homeowners. It balances old and new mismatching elements to create the perfect display of your personality. Don’t be afraid to layer textures, and mismatch your furniture; however, keep your backgrounds plain so you don’t overdo it.
      • Contemporary Styles emphasize the impact of less colourful prints while incorporating lines, planes, and angles. Big, oversized artwork fits perfectly in Luxury homes with a contemporary decorative style, add high-impact furniture and little ornamentation as the finishing touch.

      • Hollywood Regency is the decorative style that breathed glam into films like The Great Gatsby. Many Edmonton Million Dollar homes follow this decorative style due to its luxurious nature.
