(Show) home for the holidays

It’s far from a silent night for us at New Home Living as the holiday season approaches, but that doesn’t mean we can’t spread some holiday cheer around here.

Our design guru, Aly Velji, shows us how with his Design and Décor feature on hosting the perfect Christmas party — of course you want to be a host not a hostage, and Aly lays out for us the perfect holiday entertaining design scheme. I get into the Christmas spirit with my Shopping feature on Christmas trees that looks at the pros and cons between real and artificial trees.

The star of this tree would always be the show homes and new communities in the city, and we have a line-up sure to be in Santa’s good list. We start with Sabal Homes’ amazing attached homes selection in Mahogany, side-by-side homes that look so grand they’re often mistaken as the Lifestyle Lottery grand prize. Then there’s Genesis’ two distinctive show homes in Saddlestone that are so attuned to the needs of their market they have all but sold out in this new northeast neighbourhood. Greenboro Homes’ Augusta show home in Westmere should be in everyone’s Christmas gift list this season as this classy estate will be the best present. While Jayman MasterBUILT continues to create wonders with its line of family-friendly homes in Auburn Bay.

We also tour United Communities’ latest offering — the ultra exclusive enclave of Ranches of Silverado in the southwest. With Baywest Homes and Augusta Fine Homes as its builders, the new community promises seductively stately homes that call to mind Calgary’s rich ranching heritage.

With 2011 about to wrap up, Calgary’s new home market seems to have weathered the slow economy quite nicely and seems poised for another growth year in 2012,. But whatever the future brings, you can trust that New Home Living will be there to provide the latest market news and developments.
