Upon entering the home, you’re welcomed with a spacious foyer that includes a coat closet and built-in bench seat. Vinyl plank flooring starts here and spans throughout the main living areas, giving you a durable surface that mimics the look of real wood.

Space for Entertaining

The Lanark is completed with an open concept kitchen, great room and dining area, perfect for entertaining guests or cozy evenings with the family alike.

The spacious corner kitchen overlooks the great room and dining area. It offers an unobstructed view, allowing you to maintain conversations with your company while preparing a meal. A walk-in pantry is also offered here, along with a full wall of cabinetry and an island providing an abundance of storage space for all your kitchen needs. Beautiful hanging pendant lights above the island give a rustic-country aesthetic, highlighting the quartz countertops. The finishing details in this space include the ceramic tile backsplash that seamlessly ties together the creamy whites and cool greys. Meanwhile, the subtle accents in the wood detailing of the island and hood fan add even more interest to the space.

In the great room, a stunning built-in gas fireplace and entertainment unit creates a focal point that can be enjoyed throughout the main living areas, completed with a cultured stone surround, maple clad bulkhead and built-in cabinetry below. Large windows allow an abundance of natural light to fill the space while recessed potlights can be used during the darker hours. The great room provides the perfect place to spend your free time with family and friends, and allows for hosting guests with ease.

Triple garden doors in the dining room lead to a spacious 12’ x 12’ composite deck finished with aluminum railing that overlooks the backyard, creating a seamless transition to the outdoor living space. The deck is large enough for a lounge-set and barbeque, so you can look forward to many summer evenings enjoying what nature has to offer in the comfort of your own backyard.

Versatile Bedrooms

The Lanark plan comes with two secondary bedrooms as standard, however, as displayed at 7 Erb Farm Road, one of the bedrooms has been converted to an open home office. This versatile space can be used for just that (a home office) or for a variety of other purposes, such as an additional sitting area or even a piano room! The choice is up to you.

Gorgeous Master Suite

One of the many highlights of this beautiful show home is the master suite. A short hallway leads you into the open space that’s big enough for a king-sized bed and some of your favorite pieces of furniture. The bedroom is also completed with a spacious walk-in closet and a private attached ensuite. Once you enter your private oasis, you’ll find a lovely maple vanity that’s completed with two cabinets and a central set of drawers as well as double sinks, perfect for those who are sharing the room while getting ready in the mornings. A 5’ shower is completed with floor-to-ceiling ceramic tile and a built-in alcove to store soaps and shampoos, which is accented with brushed nickel hardware that compliments the finishes in the space. Finally, built-in open shelving with a cabinet below adds additional storage, while ceramic tile flooring completes the aesthetic, creating a resort-like experience that you can look forward to each day.
