Although more of a custom home builder, Metric Homes has diversified into a hybrid production development with 142 customizable townhomes, two-storey singles and bungalows on 30 acres in Kanata South. Low-rise condos are planned in the future.
The project is in the rapidly growing neighbourhoods popping up off Terry Fox Drive between Hazeldean and Fernbank roads.
Home Within a Home (Design 8)
Metric’s Home Within a Home plans combine two homes into one for handy multi-generational living that still maintains independence, or that offers income potential from the secondary unit. The two-storey portion of the home offers 4 bedrooms and 3,190 sq. ft., while the bungalow has 1 bedroom and 1,065 sq. ft.
From the outside, they appear to be one home. Inside, a doorway in the hallway that services the two-storey laundry/mudroom connects the two homes for easy access between them.
A unique feature of the home is a “bubble” wall with changing colours in the two-storey.
The Charlotte opened just after Christmas, showing off Metric’s contemporary vibe in a three-storey townhome. The three-bedroom home comes with 2,500 square feet of finished space.
An end unit that features a side main entrance opening into a vaulted main living space, the home is flooded with natural light thanks to the many windows, including in the stairwell at the front of the home.
Although the home is only partially furnished, its edgy features and finishes make up for the lack of furniture. Surprisingly, there are only a few upgrades in this home and the finished basement is included.
The upper two floors are reserved for the bedrooms — two on the second floor with ensuites and walk-in closets, and a third floor that is all master suite and includes a balcony.
