It’s the classic homebuyer’s conundrum: wanting the peace of a tucked-away neighbourhood while also wanting to be connected to the perks of city living. Is having a roomy backyard and a minutes-long drive from the grocery store too much to ask?
Forward-thinking developers like Brookfield say, “absolutely not.”
Their brand new estate community, Artesia at Heritage Pointe, is dedicated to unrivalled privacy, boasting large lots with seamless access to the vibrant South Calgary area. Nestled among 137 acres of meticulously maintained, lush greenery, Artesia ties its community together with pathways and trails.
Each home faces a pond or greenbelt, meaning there’s room to roam; yet, all the amenities residents could ever need are at their fingertips.
Artesia’s homes come in 10 stunning floorplans, all of which have appealing features for families in search of their dream homes. The Catania, for example, features a central stairway and spacious kitchen ideal for entertaining. Or take the 2,608 square-foot Lavello 3, which is estate living at its finest. It includes a large kitchen with an oversized island, a walk-through-pantry and a triple-car garage with workshop. Artesia’s new builds start in the $800,000s (including lot and GST) and offer flexible floorplans with growing families in mind.
When looking for a place to put down roots, it’s also important to keep environmental impact top of mind. Artesia is environmentally-conscious, with half of the community dedicated to green space, as well as progressive irrigation and rainwater harvesting systems. The community is known for reducing their environmental impact during every step of the building process, from ventilation to waste management and water conservation.
And what better way to enjoy these eco-friendly features than to get outside and explore? Artesia’s acres of native foliage and quiet waterways make it feel like a world of its own. Local amenities are far from being out of reach, however, as the community is a seven-minute drive away from the Seton Urban District. While the area is still developing, it plans to include schools (all grades as well as public, Catholic and French options), restaurants, medical clinics. Seton will also be connected to the rest of the city via the Green Line LRT track, which is currently under construction.
Living in Artesia means not having to travel far for entertainment, whether you’re exploring the neighbourhood’s vast path network, stopping by the world’s largest YMCA or hitting up the community’s tennis courts. Each home comes with ample space for at-home entertaining as well — think of the barbecues you could host from your large, water-facing deck and yard.
For nights when the sitter is available, the nearby Seton Urban District is already home to Calgary’s first premium theatre, which includes service at your seat, an expanded menu, adult-only-auditoriums and reserved, club-style seats. The district is also home to the Seton Library, which has services for the whole family, including a teen centre and bookable meeting space. Artesia is also a short drive across Deerfoot Trail from the Heritage Pointe Golf Club, an ideal spot to relax on the weekend with friends or treat a client.
Even if you’ve long outgrown your starter home, it can be hard to picture your family somewhere new. But Artesia is a rare gem: the elevated living environment you’ve worked hard to achieve, mingled with all the serenity and recreational opportunities offered by the great outdoors. With its incredible blend of private space and connection to the community, you’ll be hard-pressed to imagine Artesia as anything less than a home for life.
