They don’t make it easy.
With builders Averton Homes, Kondro Homes and Parkwood Master Builder unveiling three new, dramatic Full House Lottery 2019 dream homes there are options if iconic houses are what you’re looking for.
But which door is the right one for you? That’s a good question, as not only does each front door at the Creekwood Collections at Chappelle in southwest Edmonton lead you into a feast for the eyes, each home also stands on its own, making the choice even more difficult — and yes, you may have to make that choice.
For the lottery’s first grand prize winner, its welcome to the great indoors. Parkwood’s 4,788-square-foot four-bedroom, five-bathroom home brings the outside inside with an indoor garden featuring botanicals and greenery that provides a freshness to the space.
On the other hand, if you’re the second grand prize winner a selection must be made: either it’s Kondro’s 4,662-square-foot four-bedroom, four-bathroom home where entertaining is made more entertaining, or Averton’s 4,732-square-foot three-bedroom, four bathroom home where mid-century modern meets this century.
“The houses are the main feature of the lottery,” said Jamie Bliss, vice president of marketing and communications for the University Hospital Foundation — one of two hospital foundations the Full House lottery supports, with the other being the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation. “In a similar way that the funding we get (from the lottery) allows the foundations to dream and push forward, the houses let the lottery ticket buyers dream as well.”
West coast wonder
Once inside Parkwood’s modern wonder, it’s as if you’re transported to the west coast. A lighter wall colour — primarily Benjamin Moore’s Simply White — adds to the bright feel, but it’s the lush interior landscaping in the main floor atrium/sunroom and the WaterWorks Ponds fountain feature on the lower level that reinforce an outdoor feel all year round.
It doesn’t stop there. With the atrium open to the second floor a flexible copper wire Bocci light fixture (think bocce ball-like spheres for the lights) continues the botanical emphasis, while at the same time doubling as sculptural art. Similarly, the adjacent grand foyer boasts its own sculptural lighting. This stunning custom LightForm fixture, made from molten aluminium poured over lava rock and then chipped away to reveal a work of art, was modified specifically to enhance and even frame the open-riser staircase.
