Here at Lexis, we’ve created our fair share of fantastic floor plans. After designing and building plenty of beautiful new homes in Saskatoon, we’ve learned what works, and what doesn’t. That’s what has helped make this an award winning floor plan (2017 Bridges Award for Best Production Home Over 1300 sq ft).
For our newest floor plan, The Elate, we’ve brought together all the elements that a stylish and functional new home requires. From the welcoming front porch, to the luxurious ensuite, to the optional covered porches, bonus room and garage extension, we’ve thought of everything our clients need to create a happy home.
Let’s take a tour, shall we?
It all starts with classic curb appeal. The inviting front porch is bookended by elegant columns, giving the home a refined craftsman feel. Stepping inside, you’ll find a casual foyer with a practical storage and bench seating. Moving further into the home, you’ll pass a second storage closet and a powder room, discreetly tucked around a corner for privacy.
The heart of this home is the open-plan kitchen, living and dining area. The generous kitchen island serves as the hub of activity in this airy, light-filled space. A large walk-through butler pantry offers ample storage and extra work space, while the kitchen provides plenty of counter space. A sophisticated dry bar sits adjacent to the kitchen and living room, adding extra space for storing your Prairie Sun brew, your pinot, or for prepping a cocktail (we hear the drink of summer is champagne on ice).
Whatever your drink of choice, you’ll want to take it outside to the porch overlooking the backyard, accessible from the dining area. If you prefer the shade, there’s an option to make this a covered porch. When the days get shorter and the air gets more brisk, you’ll appreciate getting cosy by the glowing fireplace while watching the snow fall outside the expansive windows.
Upstairs, no detail was overlooked. The master bedroom boasts a spa-like ensuite with a dual-sink vanity and a separate tub and shower. It wouldn’t be complete without a sizable walk-in closet. For homebuyers who love to put their feet up outdoors—with a little privacy—a second-floor deck accessible from the master is a great option to consider. Two additional bedrooms on this level share a bathroom and linen closet. The laundry room is conveniently located next to the linen closet.
We know our homebuyers love to have choice when it comes to extra features. For those who need the space, there’s an optional bonus room that can be added above the garage. And the garage itself can be extended to create space for a workshop, an extra vehicle or sports equipment.
At 2054 square feet, with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, The Elate is a spacious, elegant home that fits well on a 44 foot (or larger) lot. Don’t have land to build on? Check out our available lots here.
