Show Stopping Show Homes: The Harlow in Okotoks Greatroom Harlow imageThink you’ve seen amazing show homes? Wait until you feast your eyes on the Harlow; a breathtaking 2215 square foot show home nestled in the blossoming community of Rancher’s Rise, Okotoks. Read on (or better yet, come visit) to discover why this amazing two-storey, three bed, two and a half bath model is the ultimate show stopper.

The first thing you’ll notice when you walk in the front door is the expansive nine-foot high ceilings, vastly open floor plan and contemporary yet rustic feel. The foyer boasts a huge entry closet, while the beautifully crafted hardwood draws your eye to the nearby den (featuring rustic barn doors!) and oh-so-welcoming great room.

The great room really lives up to its name with its modern two-sided gas fireplace, rustic stone finishes, and eye-catching overhead windows. Oh, and did we mention the great room really opens up with twelve-foot ceilings?

Here too, things really open up as the great room is adjacent to the Harlow’s roomy open dining nook and kitchen – all of which are cascaded in natural light from the giant windows overseeing the entire area. The ‘nook’ itself is more like an open dining room with 140 square feet of space.

Because the nook is overlooked by a massive eat-in kitchen island, entertaining in this home is sure to be a breeze. The kitchen demands attention with beautifully finished counter tops (available in granite or quartz depending on your preference), gleaming stainless steel appliances and designer fixtures. Not to mention, you’ll be bowled over by how intensely functional this area is with plenty of eye-catching cabinetry and a walk-through pantry for added storage.

The alternative entry to the main floor, of course, is through the Harlow’s massive double front-attached garage (hello, warm cars and extra storage). The garage entry also gives way to an ultra-handy mudroom – perfect for kicking your shoes off at the end of a long day. Here, you can take a left and head into the half-bath, put a few things away in the walk-in storage closet, or head straight into the kitchen via the walk-through pantry.

The only thing rivalling the impressive main level is this show home’s equally awe-inspiring upstairs. To the right, you’ll find two secondary bedrooms, laundry and guest bathroom and to the left, you’ll discover the magnificent master suite…but let’s save the best for last.

The secondary bedrooms both sit conveniently across from a large, three-piece bathroom – a guarantee kids and overnight guests will never have to travel far to use the washroom. Both bedrooms feature plenty of space, plush carpeting, large closets and lots of natural light. The laundry room also sits close by; an ideal location when having to put away linens in the nearby closet, or ushering clothes in and out of the bedrooms.

And, the moment you’ve been waiting for (drum roll)…the master suite! The bedroom itself is nearly 230 square feet and can easily accommodate the five-piece bedroom set you’ve been eyeing up (complete with king-sized bed, of course). The walk-in closet also leaves nothing to be desired with a load of space for clothes, shoes, storage and pretty much anything else you can think of.

Of course, no master suite is complete without a spectacular ensuite (which, is almost as large as the bedroom, by the way). This five-piece haven will no doubt be the perfect escape at the end of a long day. Featuring a roomy, walk-in shower as well as double vanities separated by a generous soaker tub, this show home’s  ‘bathroom’ is the retreat of all retreats. P.S. Quartz or granite countertops are included here, too.

Optional Upper Floor

Don’t like what you see in the show home? No problem! The Harlow offers a secondary upper floor plan with over four hundred square feet of additional space. With this awesome alternative, you now have a 4 bedroom home, which two of the bedrooms other than the master suite have walk-in closets. A family-friendly bonus room and the option to have double sinks in the main bathroom. Great if you have 2-3 kids!

Of course, when it comes to how awesome this show home is, you don’t have to take our word for it. Stop by and visit us at 214 Ranch Road in Okotoks to really get an idea of what all the fuss is about.

Keep in mind, the Harlow offers just a glimpse of all the possibilities available with a Broadview Home.
