Loving Airdrie Living: Fit for a king
Emerald New Homes creates your castle in Sovereign Court
If Irish nobility had a home, it would be in Airdrie’s new community of Sovereign Court where Emerald New Homes creates some of the most eye-catching and family-friendly homes this side of the Emerald Isles.
Emerald New Homes, a sister company of McKee Homes, prides itself as Airdrie’s boutique new homebuilder. Since it was founded in 1988, it has created everything from exceptionally stylish maintenance-free townhomes to custom-designed luxury dream homes.
Sovereign Court is a 50-lot community within Melcor Development’s King’s Heights in southeast Airdrie. “We chose the name Sovereign Court in keeping with the King theme,” says area manager Alan Stuckert. “The McKees are originally from Ireland and all our plans are named after castles in Ireland.”
Emerald New Homes is committed to providing superior quality, innovative products, and skilled craftsmanship in every new home they build. With the slogan: “Airdrie’s new definition of value,” Sovereign Court offers home buyers with more space for less — an attribute that is becoming harder and harder to find in Alberta.
Home sizes range from 1,302 to 1,590 square-feet, with prices starting at $285,900. Offered are two-storey homes, bungalows, semi-detached homes as well as bi-levels and split-levels. “Our starter homes often appeal to young families who want the benefit of inexpensive home ownership without the burden of condo fees,” Stuckert says.
He notes that the bulk of the homes in Sovereign Court back west onto green space. “The lots are large and spacious with plenty of room for big backyards and homes are available at prices you can’t find in the big city.”
Stuckert says Airdrie itself retains this small town friendliness but has “all the amenities of Calgary without the hassles of the big city — and King’s Heights is close to all amenities including established schools, recreation, shopping, restaurants and entertainment. In addition, Cross Iron Mills and the airport are just a short drive away.”
New from Emerald New Homes is a 1,100-square-foot bungalow, with an attached garage and walk-out basement. It features an open floor plan with a spacious main level master suite. The fully completed walk- out basement has two secondary bedrooms, a four-piece bath and a large family room, meaning there is space for the entire family.
“The finishings include spindle railings, granite countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms, rounded corners, stainless steel appliances in the kitchen and upgraded European Amazon laminate floorings,” he says.
“These homes represent the best value you can find in King’s Court Heights, and we will work with you through the planning, building and finishing stages to ensure that your new home experience exceeds your expectations.”
