On April 22, the newest community in Springbank will open, and you'll have the opportunity to see for yourself what it means to live in a deluxe villa in Harmony. Just west of the thriving city of Calgary, here's a community that you'll be happy to call home. These attached bungalow homes by NuVista have all the features you could desire in a new home, combined with the many benefits of a planned community.

We're creating a space where you can live, work, play, and enjoy the kind of community you want for your growing family. Harmony is a mixed-use community, and that's apparent in the wide variety of dwellings available. Everything from estate homes to multi-family and senior residences can be found here. For a young and active family, the community of Harmony is a great fit.

These villas are spacious enough for a family, with two levels and plenty of room for entertaining and leisure activities. All the models have a combined great room, dining, and kitchen space and a master suite on the main floor. Each villa comes with a combination mud/laundry room and a full or half-bath on the main level. With this design, and even more living area on the lower floor, there's plenty of room to spread out.

Quality Construction

Homes at Harmony Villas have the quality features that are the hallmark of a well-built home. The fibre cement siding on the exterior is maintenance free, to last a lifetime. The gourmet kitchen will inspire you to experiment with your cooking skills. Shaker style oak and maple cabinets coordinate with beautiful granite or quartz countertops. With tile construction, beauty and permanence are built into foyers, bathrooms and laundry/mudrooms.

Energy Saving Materials

Insulated garage doors and steel exit doors provide energy savings, along with insulated water lines and triple-pane windows. The combination of triple-pane construction and argon gas in the windows doubles the energy efficiency of your home. LED lights in the kitchen provide workspace illumination while also saving electricity.

Premium Touches

Each great room has a gas-fueled, full-height stone fireplace and access to a spacious covered deck. All of the kitchens feature an island for extra workspace and easier interaction with the family. Nine-foot ceilings, hardwood/tile flooring and finished basements are other upscale touches. The deluxe landscaping package includes irrigation and fencing.


One of the most exciting physical features of the Harmony community will be the large man-made lake with a small island for picnicking. The Beach Club and Wellness Centre will be built along the shores of the lake, with docks and walkways to the rest of the town. The Town Centre will also front on the lake, with markets, shops, services and multi-family homes. Residents will be able to rent sailing and fishing equipment at the planned Boat House.

The diversity of architecture and variety of living, dining, and shopping areas will contribute to the interest and high energy of the Town Centre. Artist lofts, studios, and galleries are planned, along with a market featuring fresh food and artisan crafts. A Community Centre, Harmony Plaza and an outdoor Amphitheatre will be gathering spots for concerts, festivals, and other community events.


The neighbourhood is linked by 25 kilometres of walking paths that wind through green spaces. You'll be able to walk to parks and public areas, including the lake and downtown shops. A third of the open space (600 acres) will be reserved for conservation, recreation, and playgrounds. Included will be a site set aside for the local elementary school and a 36-hole golf course. Pocket parks will also be interspersed throughout the neighbourhood.

At 1,553 square feet, the Cilantro is a good representation of the new Harmony Villas. Entry to the home is through the garage and laundry/mud room or via the front door. From the front porch, you enter into a spacious foyer. Stairs to the lower floor are on your left, followed by a half-bath. The foyer opens into a gourmet kitchen and great room, with sliding doors leading to a covered deck at the rear of the home.

The master suite entry is across from the chef-inspired kitchen. It has all of the amenities, including a spa tub and separate shower, dual sinks, enclosed toilet and a walk-in closet. In the lower level, there are two more bedrooms and another full bath. In addition to a linen closet, there is plenty of extra storage.

The highlight of the lower level is that it contains not just a family room but a games room too. The games room has open access from the hall and comes with an optional wet bar. From the family room beyond, you can step out onto the walk-out covered patio area. The variety of living spaces, porches and patios make this dwelling seem even larger than its already generous size.

Look To The Future

As the homes and amenities of Harmony continue to be built, it takes a little imagination to embrace the vision of what it will become. The Discovery Centre, with its view of the Rocky Mountains, is one part of the planned community that has been completed. Visit there, and you'll learn in detail about the holistic outlook that will be a part of life in this community. Once the town has filled out, the Discovery Centre will provide a space to gather, learn, and play for residents.

Your Planned Community

The beauty of buying a home in Harmony Villas is that you'll have access to great outdoor amenities right in your own backyard with the fitness facilities, parks, and playgrounds that will be created. Entertainment and shopping will be only a walk or a short drive away. It's a great way of life when you have access to the arts, the lake, shopping, and fitness all in one place. 

With a low-maintenance villa, you can enjoy your beautifully appointed home and take part in all the other opportunities available in this special new community.
