Impressive from every angle: the Brunswick in Sage Creek

Function meets flexibility with this thoughtful design

Exterior of our show home, the Brunswick, at 331 Tanager Trail in Sage Creek

A foyer doesn’t just serve as an entry point — it also sets the tone for the rest of the home.

Paul Michael Saltel, sales representative for the Brunswick — a new Randall Homes show home found at 331 Tanager Trail in Sage Creek — says the home’s foyer makes a great first impression.

“It’s a beautifully designed area,” he says. “Initially, it creates a sense of privacy because it’s not open to the great room. Then, you see the areas to its left and right.”

Look left, and you see a formal dining room with huge window, look right and you see a sunken mudroom and a discreetly placed hallway. “The dining area is a wonderful space that can be used either as a dining room, office or a multi-purpose or family-specific space,” says Saltel. “The mudroom is a separate yet accessible space with a transom window, bench, shelving and easy no-step access to the attached double garage.”

Regardless which area you’re in, access to the great room is seamless thanks to a doorway to the rear of the formal dining room and the aforementioned hallway next to the marvelous mudroom.

No matter whether you enter the great room via the kitchen or informal dining area, you find yourself in a bright, well-ordered and extremely livable space.

“Everyone who’s gone through the home really liked how large and bright it is,” he says. “All the large windows on the rear wall let in tons of sunlight from the south, while a smart layout uses all the available space extremely well.”

More specifically, each of the great room’s three spaces, the island kitchen, eating area and family room, was sized to offer maximum utility without overlapping.

Master bedroom suite inside our show home, the Brunswick, at 331 Tanager Trail in Sage CreekThe island kitchen, which inhabits the left side of the great room, is big enough to offer maximum function, yet not so big a to intrude on the centrally situated dining area. Meanwhile, the spacious eating area is subtly defined by a huge window on its rear wall.

A light-filled family room to the right of the eating area then finishes off the great room with plenty of space to relax — and an understated style that makes it a pleasure to spend time in.

“The clean, uncomplicated design looks great,” Saltel says. “There’s a TV niche with grey feature wall and low-profile entertainment unit that can hold a 55- or 60-inch TV, and the ribbon fireplace with its marble-style surround with natural maple trim is simple, yet beautiful.”

He adds that the kitchen and an expandable eating area are equally impressive.

Looking into the kitchen from the great room inside our show home, the Brunswick, at 331 Tanager Trail in Sage Creek“The island, which can seat two to three, has a grey base that goes beautifully with off-white cabinets, quartz countertops, a white subway tile backsplash and stainless appliances. A patio door on the kitchen’s rear wall leads out to a big composite deck, and there’s plenty of room in the eating area to extend a dining table out to seat 10 if you need to.”

Head upstairs via a striking maple-trimmed staircase, and you can’t help but marvel at the interesting yet efficient layout.

For starters, there’s a laundry room on the mezzanine level between the main floor and upper level that provides a distinct, out-of-the way place to do laundry. Ascend a short set of stairs, and you find a bright second floor that lays out four spaces (main bath, two secondary bedrooms, master suite) in a unique L-shaped configuration.

Great room with marble fireplace surround and stairs leading up to the second level inside our show home, the Brunswick, at 331 Tanager Trail in Sage Creek“Both secondary bedrooms, they’re identical in size at 10 feet by 11 feet, are at the far end next to the main bath,” he says. “The master suite was placed to the left of the stairs.”

That placement makes for a well-isolated master suite that essentially has the left side of the upper level all to itself.

“It has everything you’d want in a master suite, it’s bright, spacious, has his/her walk-in closets and a beautiful three-piece ensuite with five-foot shower, grey vanity with quartz countertop, and his/her sinks. A marble-style vinyl floor really goes well with the grey vanity.”

Saltel says the Brunswick is proof positive a home can be designed to be unique, yet livable.

“Randall’s design team did a wonderful job with the Brunswick. They made it different, yet it still functions beautifully in every area. It has everything a family could possibly want — space, style, function and flexibility.”

Planning on building a new home in 2018... we answer your questions

Avanti Custom Homes has been getting a lot of questions from our recent Fall Parade of Homes guests about building in 2018 and we would like to pass on some helpful information...

Avanti Custom Homes - Fall promotion - build your home before the end of the year!

Q: Did you know that if you want to enjoy your new Avanti Custom Home by next summer, starting in January is already too late?

A: Before Avanti Custom Homes can turn that first shovel of dirt, we need several weeks to create your perfect design, select specifications, finalize pricing and apply for permit. Get a jump on things now and settle into your new place next summer before school starts.

Q: Did you know you can save about 3% on 2018 prices?

A: When the market is alive and well, like it is now, new custom homes have industry wide price increases. Similar to inflation, prices go up each year when the economy is strong. By getting your foot in the door now, you can move in 2018 and take advantage of 2017 prices.

Q: Do you know the best time of the year to finalize your new Avanti Custom Homes is the 4th quarter?

A: Custom home suppliers and our trade partners price their products and services on an annual basis. After the first of the year, prices go up for the commodities used to create materials, the labour charge to install them and the cost of developing land. In the 4th quarter, Avanti Custom Homes has the opportunity to secure pricing for our 2018 homes. This allows your custom home to be built in 2018 but at 2017 prices. Any price increases for 2018 becomes equity in your new home.

Bottom line, if you plan to build next year anyway, don’t wait until January and pay more for the exact same home! Call today and let’s chat about how to get started to lock in best prices, secure prime home sites, and be in next summer while you can still enjoy the outdoor amenities.

Available to build in Oak Bluff West, Taylor Farm, Sage Creek or on your own lot. Visit Avanti Custom Homes website where – Custom is the New Standard.

Spring Parade of Homes – It’s about you. Your home, your way, endless choices

Functional Flair - the Tuscan is adaptable, affordable and stylish

When it comes to family life, size definitely matters.

At first glance, a home that comes in well under the magical 2,000 sq. ft. mark might seem undersized. And at "just" 1,457 sq. ft., The Tuscan -- the newest show home from Randall Homes in Sage Creek -- might seem to be fighting out of its weight class in the family home category.

Functional Flair - the Tuscan is adaptable, affordable and stylish - Custom Homes

A quick tour through 51 John Pelland Road in scenic Sage Creek will prompt you to change your mindset, said Randall Homes sales representative Paul Michael Saltel. "Because the floor plan is so good, it feels much bigger than its listed square footage," said Saltel. "It is a very functional home. With about 1,100 sq. ft. of livable space downstairs, it makes a great family -- or empty nester -- home with more than 2,500 sq. ft. of space to enjoy."

More importantly, the home is very affordable, added Saltel. "You can get this home starting at $399,900 including lot, piles and driveway. This is a show home, so it has granite countertops and a backyard deck. The house for $399,900 would come without the deck and granite countertops, but would still include the beautiful laminate plank flooring that runs through the great room."

In a nutshell, nothing is sacrificed in The Tuscan amenity-wise. The foyer, for example, is exceptionally wide, and defined stylishly by taupe ceramic tile (though in the base model, the flooring might be a high-grade vinyl). The four steps up to the main living area feature the same laminate plank flooring running through the great room, and handrails on either side are dark oak, as is the capping on the one-third stub wall defining the stairs.

Then there's the great room itself, which is well-proportioned and deceptively large. The island kitchen is particularly spacious. "There's lots of room for more than one person to move around and create meals without bumping into each other," said Saltel. "The island is angled, which opens up room, and the aisles on either side of it are extra-wide. The granite countertops and glass tile backsplash are options, but the kitchen comes standard with the cabinets seen here (a smart walnut veneer), the laminate plank flooring and corner walk-in pantry."

Also standard is a huge dining area. In show home trim, it has a table that seats four to six. A table for 10 to 12 could be inserted into the generous space, and there would still be plenty of room to move. The dining area has also been placed next to patio doors leading out to a design feature that is both novel and practical. "Because of the great room's recessed design, you can put a huge back yard deck in out back without taking up space in the yard," said Saltel, "the deck installed here is nine feet deep by 17 feet wide, so it gives you plenty of extra space to barbeque and entertain."

Functional Flair - the Tuscan is adaptable, affordable and stylish - Custom Builders

As big as the dining area is, there's still three to four feet of buffer space between it and the family room, which is also deceptively big."It can easily hold a couch, loveseat and chair, as well as an entertainment unit for your TV," said Saltel. "It also has a neat feature at its rear -- a dark oak capped wall that defines it, and also separates it from the hallway that leads to the home's three bedrooms."

Once again, the available space is used masterfully in the bedroom wing. An L-shaped design has been utilized to achieve good separation between the four spaces inhabiting the wing. One secondary bedroom and the master suite are to the left with the master at the end of the hallway.

To the right is another bedroom and the four-piece main bathroom. The segmentation creates a nice, clean feel that makes for a higher degree of privacy and utility. There's also a main floor laundry housed behind two pairs of double bi-fold doors next to the bathroom - a clever, and convenient touch.

Functional Flair - the Tuscan is adaptable, affordable and stylish - Custom Homes

Meanwhile, both secondary bedrooms are oversized with huge windows and good-sized closets, features that kids will no doubt enjoy. Then, there's the master suite, a space that parents, likewise, will enjoy. "It has tons of space, and natural light just floods in from a huge picture window," said Saltel. "Taupe carpeting, taupe walls -- there's also a chocolate brown feature wall behind the bed -- create a relaxing feel, and there's also a three-piece ensuite with five-foot shower, and good-sized walk-in closet. The big windows are standard with Randall, and are a great feature because they allow so much light to enter the home in every room."

The additional 1,100 sq. ft. of livable space downstairs is a feature that families and empty nesters alike will enjoy, added Saltel. "A steel beam is standard, so there are no teleposts. Large egressed windows make the basement nice and bright. You can put in a massive rec room, as many as two bedrooms and still have plenty of room left over for storage space and a big mechanical room. This is an affordable, functional home that's ideal for young families, young couples or empty nesters.

(There's No Place Like) Home For The Holidays!

As a family owned company, we at Randall Homes know that the holidays are an important time of year.  Spending time at home, with friends and family alike, to enjoy each other’s company, good food (and perhaps some spirits?) and exchanging gifts is a tradition for many families.  Part of that tradition often times includes decorating your home.  You’re proud of your home year round, as are we, but with “unexpected guests” expected to pop in over the holidays, there is more of an incentive to put extra care into the atmosphere within the house.  As part of our tradition, we decorate several of our show homes for the holidays, inside and out.  This is something we like to do because it can help you better visualize yourself in a Randall home, sharing the holidays and making memories and new traditions of your own.

Randall Homes - Show Home - Winnipeg - Manitoba

This year several of our different show homes have been decorated; view some of them here, or brave the weather and see them in person!  Our show homes will be open over the holidays, Monday to Thursday 3-8; Saturday and Sunday 1-5; closed on Friday.

From all of us at Randall Homes,

Wishing you and yours a happy, comfortable Holiday Season!

Home is on the Horizon

Winnipeg is in the early stages of some extreme population growth and is expected to reach 1,000,000 people by 2033.  Families are expanding, and affordable homes in established neighborhoods are becoming harder to find.  It seems like everywhere you turn, new homes and subdivisions are popping up around Winnipeg and across the province.

Horizon - Randall Homes - Home Builders - Winnipeg - Manitoba

Turn-key houses or ready to move in homes, are possibly the most convenient purchase any buyer can make.  Purchasing a custom built house saves the buyer time, energy and stress.  By avoiding the need to renovate or upgrade it truly makes it their home from the first moment they walk through the door.  We have several turn-key homes ready for possession in different subdivisions within the greater Winnipeg area.  One of our newest models, the Horizon, can be built in any of the city’s growing neighborhoods.

Horizon - Randall Homes - Custom Homes - Winnipeg - Manitoba

The Horizon model is the ideal home for expanding families. The main floor open concept kitchen with large pantry and vast great room span the width of the house, providing the perfect family area.  The formal dining room is separate from the rear of the home, and is the perfect place for entertaining friends, family and guests.  The main level is complete with a large laundry room, walk in closet and powder room.  Upstairs you will find four spacious bedrooms, three of them serviced by a full bathroom.  The master suite features a large walk in closet and is complete with an ensuite bathroom.  The Horizon model can be customized to the buyers’ preference with several different options, including an expanded eat-in kitchen with additional patio door, built in fireplace or entertainment unit in the living room and an expanded owners suite with a four piece bathroom and his and hers closets.

Horizon - Randall Homes - Show Home - Winnipeg - Manitoba

Our Horizon show home is accessible to be viewed in Sage Creek year round as well as during the Fall Parade of Homes.  Sage Creek is in the southeast area of Winnipeg, located off of Lagimodiere and just south of Bishop Grandin.  The area is expanding quickly and is expected to be one of the most vibrant up and coming neighborhoods in the city; pedestrian-friendly with tree lined streets, known for its distinctive homes and gathering places.  The Fall Parade of Homes runs until October 6th; don’t miss your chance to view all of the available Randall Homes.  Who knows, you could find your future home!
