Avalon Zen homes coming to Westridge Okotoks

I am really excited to announce that Avalon Master Builders are bringing Zen to Westridge Okotoks

The development is due to open the weekend of June 14th and 15th with occupancy starting in Spring 2015.

I’m a huge supporter of energy efficient homes and this renowned developer will be bringing their unique line of energy efficient town-homes to Okotoks. The new and exciting 37 unit complex is currently in the pre-construction stage and is located in community of Westridge Okotoks. Westridge is conveniently located in the South West of Okotoks close to schools, shops and all amenities.

The Town of Okotoks supports sustainable energy efficient housing as seen in the Drake Landing Solar Community and these Avalon built home’s have the Mike Holmes seal of approval for design, quality and efficiency.

Promoting myself as a “Green” Okotoks Realtor I cannot wait to see these new townhouses. Every Zen home is tested by an independent third party for sustainable building practices and Zen homes are guaranteed to lower energy costs by 36%. The efficiency of Avalon master built homes is not solely related to the way the home is constructed. Other important factors help make the homes efficient are:- high efficiency furnaces, the very best energy star rated home appliances, low flow faucets and HRV system.

Many people think these super efficient homes cost more to buy, however Avalon’s vision is to build these homes at net zero which means there is no additional cost to the buyer. The townhouses will start in the $260,000 range and they will vary in size from 1017 to 1270 square feet.

Popular floor plans from the ZEN project in Auburn Bay Calgary will be available in Zen Okotoks project. These floor plans include, single level homes with gardens, split level homes and two storey townhouses. Regardless of the design you choose all Zen homes will benefit from a private outdoor area, Hardie board siding which is very low maintenance and many other high efficiency features.

The community of Westridge Okotoks is a perfect location for families, first time home buyers and property investors. If you are interested in buying or selling a  home in Okotoks please contact me and I will be happy to help.
