RYAN GARNER, EDMONTON JOURNAL Updated: March 15, 2019
Neighbouring the river valley in the heart of Edmonton’s growing southwest is a new community gaining attention, Arbours of Keswick.
Spanning over 160 acres, this new neighbourhood from Rohit Land Development will welcome over 1,000 new families and homes to the area. Arbours of Keswick is a finalist for Edmonton’s 2019 Best New Community in the Canadian Home Builders Association’s Awards of Excellence in Housing.
Located a short drive from the Currents of Windermere shopping centre, Arbours of Keswick features many amenities and will be home to a K-9 school, a new playground and a park, making it a community that will grow with your family.
For the golf enthusiast, the River Ridge Golf Club, Windermere Golf and Country Club and Jagare Ridge Golf Club are all just minutes away.
Arbours of Keswick is comprised of three areas: The Estates, The Arbours, and The Towne, where residents will find innovative architecture and homes with remarkable curb appeal to perfectly fit any lifestyle.
Gordon King Pond is centered in the community. This natural area is surrounded by multi-use trails connecting to neighbouring communities and ultimatelythe river valley. Large steel arbours, a new playground, and commemorative plaques will be installed this summer to tell Gordon King’s story and add character to the area’s walking trails.
One of the first things you’ll notice coming into the Estates at Arbours of Keswick are the open and generous entry features, giving a wide and comfortable welcome to the community. These larger-than-expected areas provide room for enhanced landscaping, including more boulevard trees, and feature fencing. Here, you will find triple car garage luxury homes with classic and modern architecture built by award-winning builders Dolce Vita Homes, Kanvi Homes, Kimberley Homes, and Parkwood Master Builder.
The landscaping features continue into the Arbours. As you drive down King Vista, the main street leading to Gordon King Pond, the enhanced landscaping combines with modern and traditional styles of Streetscape homes giving the community its unique curb appeal.
Streetscape homes are the latest innovation in housing, where the veranda and front doors line up with the front of the garage, whereas typical homes have deep front entrances behind large garages, hidden from the street. The result is an upscale façade with the same square footage and price as a typical home. The Streetscape homes are built on wider lots and available from Excel Homes, Kanvi Homes, and Rohit Communities.
Designer duplexes are also available in Arbours of Keswick. Rohit Communities offers their innovative front-back duplex, a contemporary and unique layout where one home has a street-facing garage, and the attached duplex home has a lane-facing garage. The duplexes offer six designer interior styles with your choice of double attached or detached garage.
