Daytona Homes was a popular destination during the recent Saskatoon & Region Home Builders’ Association Parade of Homes and, though the parade has completed its run, the home builder has kept the doors open to its Tahoe III model home, located at 402 McFaull Crescent in Brighton.
“The feedback to this home during the Parade of Homes was amazing,” says Lynn Robison, sales consultant with Daytona Homes. “So many people told us this was their dream home. We have already sold two Tahoe III models and I’m working on a quote for a third.”
Wanting to stand out on the parade route, the Daytona Homes team took design elements from its popular Tahoe II home plan and incorporated new features they knew would appeal to Saskatoon home buyers.
The Tahoe III is an 1,850-square-foot two storey, with three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and an attached double garage.
“It’s an ideal house for families or people who love to entertain,” says Robison. “We’ve had interest in this home from families, couples and even single people who want the space to entertain.”
The home’s inviting ambience begins at the front door, with a spacious foyer offering comfy bench seating. An adjacent mud room provides ample storage for outerwear.
The kitchen, dining area and living room are well-defined in the open-concept great room, while maintaining an easy flow.
The kitchen exemplifies modern farmhouse design, which is achieved through a mix of classic, modern and industrial finishes. The classic Shaker-style cabinets are from Superior Cabinets’ fusion line, painted an intriguing warm grey hue called “paving stone.” Matte black accents add a dash of industrial chic, including an apron-front sink, pull-down faucet, designer pendant lights and cabinet hardware. The white subway tile backsplash is elevated by the use of black grout.
The built-in and flush-mounted stainless steel appliances integrate smoothly into the beautifully crafted cabinets.
“There’s so much prep space in this kitchen,” Robison says, drawing attention to the kitchen’s huge central island and length of quartz counters. A large walk-through pantry provides abundant storage space.
A wall of floor-to-ceiling transom-topped windows invites natural light into the adjacent living room and dining area.
A focal point in the living room is the contemporary linear electric fireplace, highlighted with a bold tile surround. Built-in cabinetry below the fireplace is ideal for storing electronics and displaying decor pieces.
Family members will also enjoy relaxing in the upstairs bonus room, which is centrally located between the master suite and children’s bedrooms. Saskatoon interior designer and artist Justine Schlosser has transformed a feature wall in the bonus room into a gorgeous abstract mural comprised of light neutral and metallic tones.
“This is original art painted on the wall. She’s done it in a few of our homes,” says Robison. Schlosser’s company, Justine Marie Studios, also selected the furnishings and staged the Tahoe III show home.
“It’s nice having the upstairs family room located right off the children’s bedrooms. We’ve also added a small beverage station with a mini-fridge for extra convenience,” says Robinson.
Both children’s bedrooms are generously sized, with large closets and built-in art niches that Robison says are perfect for “displaying treasures.”
The main bathroom is divided by a pocket door separating the vanity from the tub and toilet area. “One person can brush their teeth while another is showering in the other room,” says Robison.
The master bedroom is a luxurious oasis, highlighted by a huge ensuite bathroom that includes a glassed-in shower, stand-alone sculpted soaker tub, quartz-topped dual sink vanity and separate water closet. The ensuite leads into a large custom walk-in closet. A pocket door opens to reveal access from the closet into the walk-through upstairs laundry room.
The basement of the Tahoe III show home is fully developed, including a large family room, bedroom, full bathroom and storage room.
“It’s such a multi-functional space. It’s nice to have the basement finished, so people will have an idea of the living space they’ll gain if they develop the lower level,” says Robison.
Daytona Homes has also landscaped the home front and back, including a deck with an attractive pergola for shade and privacy.
The Daytona show home, located at 402 McFaull Crescent in Brighton, is open for viewing Monday through Thursday from 3 to 9 p.m. and on Saturday, Sunday and holidays from noon to 5 p.m. To ensure everyone’s safety, protocols include physical distancing and the use of hand sanitizer. Masks are also available at the show home.
