The Secret to “Million-Dollar” Luxury for Less: Peek Inside Green Cedar's Showhome.

Upgrade to a life of comfort and style in a spacious design in the Jade showhome at Greystone of Cochrane.


In Cochrane's Greystone community, Elevations by Green Cedar Homes has unveiled a showhome that offers luxury that looks like a million dollars without the hefty price tag.

Green Cedar Homes’ Jade model offers an accessible path to upscale living, priced at just $850,000, including the basement development, with a starting package in the $750s.

Spanning a generous 2,273 square feet on two floors; the plan is designed for the modern family upgrading to a life of comfort and style. With three bedrooms and 2.5 luxurious baths, the showhome presents the best in interior design trends and an aspirational lifestyle in its roomy layout.

The showhome was inspired by the top features families in the upper market ask for. For example, most hardworking parents want to experience relaxation, well-organized lives, and enough space for every household member to thrive at home. They also want impressive-looking kitchens for entertaining, so that they can welcome friends for lively gatherings.

People are impressed with the details. It's a showcase of what modern living should feel like,” says Rommel Banaga, Area Sales Specialist for Elevations by Green Cedar Homes in Greystone.

An Exceptional First Impression

Starting with its stunning two-story entrance, first impressions are grand. Natural light floods this lofty foyer, and an eye-catching glass rail leads the eye up into the volume of bright space above.

The main floor thoughtfully features a versatile flex room to be adapted to become a work-from-home space or transformed into a cozy den for reading or homework.

The heart of the home is the chef-inspired kitchen with all the trimmings to cook gourmet meals and make memories. Showhome visitors can drool over built-in appliances, a wall oven, and a gas cooktop with a canopy hood fan.

“The kitchen is a chef's dream. It’s a showstopper,” says Banaga. 

Personalized Home Interior Finished for Modern Tastes

Choice is one of the key benefits of building new, says Banaga.  Unlimited combinations allow buyers to express themselves and indulge in the latest trends. 

The showhome cabinets are extended to the ceiling and are included at no charge. Banaga points out that the feature is commonly an extra cost with other builders.

“We also offer a variety of finishing packages, like two-tone cabinets that are trending, with warmer tones making a comeback.

“We're seeing a shift in preferences. After years of grey dominating, we have more variety, like white paired with lighter wood finishes or classic white and black. It’s refreshing to see people embracing more diversity in their choices.”

Two-tone cabinets in white and mid-tone woodgrain, reflect a shift in preferences from grey or all-white kitchens.
All-white kitchens are getting a break, and homebuyer preferences run the gamut as more families desire multiple finishes and warm tones, like the expansive showstopper in the Jade showhome displaying luxury possibilities in Greystone of Cochrane.

Luxurious and Practical

Many other details set Elevations apart, says Banaga. For example, MDF shelving in the pantry, master, and linen closets is a step up from wire shelving. In addition, 9-foot ceilings on the main floor and basement are standard, as well as 8-foot doors that are an appropriate scale to the ceiling height.

Premium Features Standard

“These are premium features that we’re offering as standard,” he says of the luxury homes and their roomy layouts.

Opposite the kitchen is an open-concept living area, and the main floor is an entertainer's dream, seamlessly blending cooking with conversation. 

Pricing That Reflects Value

Buyers with growing kids can maximize the home’s living area by developing the basement. Every basement has the potential for two extra bedrooms and a wet bar, priced at $45,000 for 750 square feet.

The large open room of the Jade showhome built by Green Cedar in Cochrane's Greystone features the kitchen, dining,and living areas combined.
A large open main floor creates a warm backdrop for families and entertaining, presenting on-trend finishing.

The upper level puts convenience and luxury together. The laundry room, situated among the bedrooms, makes everyday chores a breeze. The bonus room is a versatile space, ready to become a playroom, a media haven, or a retreat for unwinding. The sprawling private ensuite offers a tranquil escape for self-care and a break from the day's hustle and bustle.

Diverse Demographic Appeal

The possibilities for high-end finishes and customizations are attracting a broad range of buyers, says Banaga, including locals from Cochrane and relocating families from other provinces or Calgary.

Green Cedar takes a buyer-friendly approach, with flexibility for buyers to personalize their home and choose from designer-curated options, he says.

Flexibility in the Home-Buying Process

We distinguish ourselves by actively engaging the buyer throughout the entire construction process, he says.”
