7 Reasons Why The Morris Home Is Our Most Popular

The Morris home is our most popular home at The Meadows and there is certainly a reason for this. The home combines a contemporary west coast style with classic features represented by quality finishes both inside and out.

Here is why we think this home is so popular:

1. Open and Spacious

With 9-foot over-height ceilings and oversized windows, you immediately feel the spaciousness as you enter the open-concept main floor. As you head upstairs, you continue to notice the openness of the wide stairwell.

2. Rental Income Potential

A carefully planned unfinished basement is roughed in so that you always have the option for a legal rental suite to generate additional income. And of course, there’s the ability to just finish it for your own personal use if you need more space. Alternatively, we would also be more than happy to finish the basement for you if you like.

3. Luxury Finishes

All the the luxuries that you would normally find in a larger and more expensive home is included in the price of The Morris: stainless steel kitchen appliances, quartz countertops in both the kitchen and bathrooms, wide plank laminate flooring, large ceramic floor tiles, stain-resistant carpets, and master walk-in closet.

4. Exterior Quality and Durability

As with all homes built by Arbutus Properties, exteriors are finished with James Hardie Fiber cement siding rather than the less expensive vinyl commonly used, providing durability and enhanced aesthetics. We talked about the many benefits of fiber cement siding in our previous blog here.

5. Welcoming and Inviting

Our Laneway Homes feature a full width front porch to relax and encourage meeting your neighbours. All Arbutus built homes also come with a landscaped front yard so both you and your guests will feel welcome to your home.

6. Energy Efficiency

Triple-pane Low-E windows along with R20 wall insulation and R40 blow-in insulation in the attic space all work together to help lower your energy bills.

7. Affordability:

And last but definitely not least, The Morris home starts at only $349,900 and is the perfect blend of functionality meets aesthetics in a home that is so affordable.

We hope that you have had a chance to visit our Morris Showhome at 696 Meadows Boulevard to see if you agree with why this home is so popular.
