Living in style has always been the point at Lifestyle Homes, and the 20-year-old homebuilder has built a reputation in creating some of the most eye-catching luxury homes this side of the Rockies.

Their latest show home — The Kimber — in Okotoks’ scenic Cimarron Estates is not just a breath-taker, but possesses a rare practical side that appeals to families, especially with its modern take on countryside living.

The Kimber is the next step in the evolution of the family home, the style is definitely there as can be expected with Lifestyle Homes, but the family-first values that they adhere to is also very much in evidence.

The twin islands in the kitchen are a big part of the appeal of the main floor and the seamless glamour of the wall-mounted appliances allows the whole open-concept design to shine.

The wide-plank, distressed look oak hardwood floor through the home ties everything together and the staircase with clear glass paneling and open-to-above great room lends the 3,218 square-foot home just that much more glamour.

The elevator accessed from the triple-car front attached garage stops at every level that brings a whole new meaning to family convenience.

“We pride ourselves in building a home that perfectly fits each homeowner. From small adjustments, to complete custom designs, we are delighted to work with our clients to make their home one of a kind,” says Brenda Gould, Lifestyle’s director of marketing and client services.

The Kimber show home’s prairie elevation is a stand out in the Cimarron Estates’ already spectacular streetscape that “boasts large lots and exclusive homes for big families and big dreams,” Gould says.

The master bedroom of this 1.5-storey hybrid bungalow with a developed basement level overlooks the idyllic Sheep River. “It’s just a stunning view to wake up to every morning,” Gould says. Having access to the full-length deck from the bedroom is also a great way to start the day.

The 2,219 square-foot main floor is a mix of family comfort and snazzy allure. The Kimber also has 999 square-feet in the upper level with two bedrooms and a bonus room. And the optional lower level is a sprawling entertainment area with two more bedrooms a gym and a theatre room.

Anthracite super-matte flat panel cabinets with walnut and glass cabinets blend well with the designer stone accents and the modernity of the tile backsplash to give the kitchen its executive brilliance. The twin island design is as practical as it is memorable.
