This 4-bedroom, 2.5 bath beauty features a total of 2,391 square feet of well-designed space — perfect for your growing family. The Kirkwood’s Craftsman styling is versatile enough to suit almost any taste, young or old.

Live Where You Work and Play

How awesome is it to live in Airdrie? You’ve got the best of both worlds — a small town community that fosters close family ties and lifelong friendships, plus all the big city amenities you’ll ever want or need. 

Enjoy leisurely walks to downtown Airdrie and weekday commutes to work in nearby Calgary. Ravenswood is surrounded by beautiful parks, green spaces, biking trails and recreational venues, while Airdrie is home to cultural and sporting events, entertainment, the best schools, and a host of specialty stores. 

Your new home is within minutes of King’s Heights and CrossIron Mills with large retailers like WalMart, Tim Hortons, Home Depot, and Canadian Tire. The Kirkwood in Ravenswood is in a vibrant community where your children can grow, flourish, and feel safe.

The Kirkwood’s impressive exterior includes a lavish trim package with shakes, stacked stone pillars, gable roof, and corbels. A huge 20’x22’ front facing attached garage provides ample room for two vehicles and comes with a mudroom complete with a built-in bench and lockers for storing all your winter gear with convenient access on those cold Airdrie nights.

A Warm Welcome

You’ll welcome guests through a covered verandah graced by a six-panel door with upper and side windows to an intimate foyer. From the foyer, a flex room could easily house a home office, formal dining room, or library.

Imagine celebrating birthdays, holidays, and special occasions in your dream home packed with high-end amenities and impeccable construction. The Kirkwood is built for making long lasting memories with family and friends.

The Gourmet Kitchen: A Chef’s Dream

You’ll love entertaining friends in a kitchen that’s a designer’s delight. Gather friends around your large kitchen island for casual meals or drinks amidst luxurious interior finishes. Custom touches include your choice of granite or natural stone countertops, exquisite hardwood cabinetry, and ceramic tile flooring. 

A massive stainless steel refrigerator, downdraft range hood, built in microwave, and wall oven provide just the right equipment for creating large family dinners or intimate suppers for two. Customize the model kitchen to suit your unique taste, budget, and style. Choose flooring in ceramic tile, or hardwoods. Add a tile backsplash for a dramatic textural accent. Pick a palette of wall colour and trim paint to make the Kirkwood feel just like home. 

The Second Floor

The upper floor master suite is a sumptuous sanctuary with 5-piece ensuite and massive walk-in closet. Relax and unwind in the huge ensuite with his-and-her sinks, separate tiled shower, large soaker tub, ceramic tile flooring and private water closet. 

The split floor plan gives mom and dad the privacy they need away from tots or teens. A central upper floor bonus room can double as quarters for guests, a game or play room, or a place for teens to hang out with friends. Three large bedrooms provide tons of space for a large family looking for room to grow. An upper floor laundry with washer and dryer and a 3-piece guest bath complete the family-friendly and functional second storey, along with weather-resistant triple-pane windows to let natural light flood in. 

The Bottom Line

The Kirkwood boasts an unfinished basement that can easily be converted into a man cave for dad, a teen hideaway, or a craft studio for mom. You’ve got space to spare and the possibilities are unlimited! 

Savvy new homeowners might consider adding on an income-producing secondary basement apartment or in-law suite. Your builder can help with plans to construct bedrooms, an additional bath, and living and dining areas in the unfinished basement that will not only attract potential renters, but significantly reduce your monthly mortgage. 

Before You Decide

You owe it to yourself to take a tour of the Kirkwood at Ravenswood. Impeccable construction, attention to detail, incomparable curb appeal, and space to spare (not to mention the Airdrie location and close proximity to Calgary) – this 2,391 square foot home model is one smart home buyers can’t resist!
