Small city living: Big city benefits

The StarPhoenix November 2, 2013 -

As housing prices in Saskatoon continue to rise, are you worried your dreams of new home ownership will never be realized? Are you a first-time buyer, busy professional or an empty nester seeking to simplify your life by embracing the carefree condo lifestyle? North Prairie Developments invites you to explore its newest Freedom Lifestyle Community: Chaparral Ridge in Martensville -Western Canada's fastest-growing city, located just five minutes from Saskatoon.

Located at 100 Chaparral Boulevard on the south side of Martensville, Chaparral Ridge is a master-planned condominium community featuring 106 attractive two-storey multiplex

units and loft layouts, ranging in size from 929 to 1,031 square feet in size.

Each unit reflects the superior style, craftsmanship and quality that have distinguished North Prairie Developments in the marketplace for the past 26 years. The builder has guaranteed pride of ownership by opting for upgraded finishes and fixtures.

"We've worked with our design consultant to create interior packages featuring six different combinations of cabinets, countertops and flooring products, allowing clients to personalize their units. Buyers can benefit from the vision and expertise of our professional designer," says Andrew Williams - Vice President, New Homes with North Prairie Developments Ltd.

Chaparral Ridge residences are equally attractive on the outside, featuring rich exterior finishes, charming front verandahs, balconies, and two parking stalls included. "The entire development will be fully landscaped with automatic sprinklers and electrified parking," adds Williams.

An attractive vinyl perimeter fence encloses the development, featuring an inviting 'ranch-style' stone-and-timber entranceway with signage.

At Chaparral Ridge, the living is easy! Residents will enjoy the freedom of condominium living -no lawns to cut or driveways to shovel -while not giving up the comfort and amenities of a well-appointed new home in a safe, quiet and friendly neighbourhood.

"With units priced starting at $199,900, Chaparral Ridge delivers affordable luxury at a price point you won't find in Saskatoon," says Williams. A six-piece appliance package is included in the purchase price.

"In just the first four weeks, we had sold 40 per cent of the units in Phase One at Chaparral Ridge. We're very pleased with the positive response."

Not long ago, Martensville's main appeal was its 'small town feel' and close proximity to Saskatoon. With steady population growth and elevation to city status, Martensville has now attracted a lot of big-city amenities of its own, including new schools, an aquatic centre, civic centre, heritage centre, soccer fields, ball diamonds, walking trails, restaurants and shops.

Every new property built by North Prairie Developments is registered with the New Home Warranty Program of Saskatchewan.
