You can with Kanvi

Modern features and custom design stylishly ooze from the Fusion show home

The great outdoors never felt so close as when you’re standing inside the Fusion show home by Kanvi Homes.

Nine-foot, 10-foot, and vaulted ceilings throughout the 3,167-square-foot home create a feeling of space and grandeur. A plethora of windows, of all shapes and sizes, provide an endless supply of sunlight that radiates off the home’s clean lines and white décor. It’s an urban Shangri-La, fit for a king.

“When you walk in, this house feels massive because it’s so open,” says Luke Wolters, marketing and communications manager for Kanvi Homes. “You walk in the front door and you can see the dining room. It’s wide open.”

Located in west Edmonton’s Granville community, the Fusion show home comes with a price tag of a cool $1.3 million. And it’s easy to see why.

When designing the two-storey home, the builder focused on having its trademark modern feel. All the railings are glass — a Kanvi Homes signature  — with beautiful premium engineered hardwood floors throughout the main floor, which includes a giant kitchen, dining room, living room, mud room, bathroom and cozy office lined with those previously mentioned, oversized windows.

The sleek kitchen is all white with the exception of the stainless steel oven, microwave and gas stove, as well as the grey countertop on the massive island.

Both the freezer and fridge cleverly blend in with the wall of shiny white doors and drawers that include a pantry. The overhead cabinets are powered electronically to open and close with the push of a button.

Half-way up the stairs is a large carpeted bonus room with a funky built-in shelving unit and giant flat screen TV — one of 12 within the home that can be controlled all at once through a built-in home automation system.

Further upstairs, there are two spacious bedrooms, a bathroom, laundry room and a large master bedroom with gorgeous frosted French doors at its entranceway. The master ensuite has vaulted ceilings to add elegance to the significant space, which could house a small village. His-and-her sinks are separated by a giant soaker tub while an open, two-person shower and generous walk-in closet with a small window are icing on the cake.

“To come home and have this ensuite, it really does make you relax,” Wolters says. “It’s not just a bathroom attached to your own bedroom, it’s its own area.”

The finished basement adds another 1,010 square-feet of space onto the monstrous home that Wolters says is attracting an assortment of buyers from young couples to families with two or three children.

He says when people come into the show home, they like the modern aspects of it. “They want the new, leading edge technology like power cabinets, and the clean, new modern style.”

Nestled on 305 acres on the western edge of the city, the Fusion show home resides in the community of Granville filled with trails and a green space, two ponds, a school site and retail shops. Its convenient location allows easy access to freeways like Whitemud Drive and Anthony Henday Drive.

Home prices start at $750,000 to $850,000 depending on the lot. Since Kanvi is a custom builder, anything and everything in the home can be changed.

“When someone purchases a home with us, we take them through almost every step so that what they want is done to their satisfaction,” Wolters says. “Determining what upgrades we think of as standard is a tough task because it’s more about what they want from a home, not what they want in a home.”

Kanvi specializes in modern, contemporary spaces and has had great success building in the highly sought-after developments in Edmonton and area.

The Fusion show home is located at 3941 Ginsburg Crescent and a similar, but entirely new, design is also being constructed by Kanvi in Jagare Ridge (southwest Edmonton) with eight floor plans to choose from.

Kanvi also has a product line called true custom. The floor plans people review are rarely built as originally drawn because so many customers decide to customize their home, which really is the point anyway.
