Superior standards in Riverside South

Superior standards in Riverside South
Sophie Rust
The days of suburbs filled
with cookie cutter, traditional and dare we say, boring looking homes are long
gone. Many builders are now
embracing a modern aesthetic in both the exterior
and interior design of their
homes in the ‘burbs and
HN Homes is no exception.
Their Riverside South community has recently opened
and one look at the Christopher Simmonds designed
homes make it clear these
are designs with a difference.
The initial lot release is
limited, just five 50’ single lots and 15 townhome
units, with more to follow.
The townhome sales centre
is located in the single family ‘Rockway’ model and it’s
a great way to see the superior standard finishes which
come included in each HN
design. With the look and
feel of a high end custom
home, it’s clear to see that
every detail of these homes
is highly designed. From taking the fireplace from its traditional end of the wall position and moving it to a centralised location, to reinforcing the importance of flow
with connected but open
plan living, each design is
carefully thought out.
Standard finishings are
far from basic and include
smooth ceilings throughout,
hardwood on the main floor
and on the stairs up to the
second floor and 40oz carpet
where included. A wifi enabled thermostat and automatic garage door opener
allow you to use your phone
to control them and air conditioning and a high efficiency filter create a superior indoor environment.
Glass panels on the second
floor stairs create a sleek and
contemporary feel and potlights are standard in several areas of the home, such
as over every shower and tub
and in the halls and kitchen.
The kitchen also features self
closing drawers and cabinets
and 41 inch uppers. Many
of these would be upgrades
with other builders and not
only does it allow you to
walk into your new home
feeling like it’s already been
upgraded but any upgrades
you decide to do on top of
the standards will really elevate your space into feeling like a luxurious custom
The townhome models
will open at the end of May
(we’ll be featuring them in an
upcoming issue!) and feature
many of the same standards
as the single family homes.
The exteriors of the townhomes are as distinctive as
the singles and they include
finished basements. Available for purchase now, there
are several designs from 1771
sq.ft to 2523 sq.ft ranging
from $339,000 - $399,000.
The single family homes
are located in an established
area of Riverside South and
are perfect for growing families with three elementary
schools and one high school
within walking distance, as
well as a community centre and plenty of parks and
green space.
Located along the banks
of the Rideau River, River-
side South has been establishing itself as a fast growing community since 1996
and will likely keep expanding for another 20 years. Easily accessible to most areas
of the city, especially with
the completion of the Vimy
Memorial bridge, this master
planned community is sur-
rounded by nature but still
has three shopping plazas
providing the amenities you
would need and easy access
to the many shops and restaurants of Barrhaven.
