This beautiful kitchen is open to the living room and dining room.

Fully Suited, Smart Family Home

Homes with suites are a great opportunity for first time buyers and those in the market for a vacation home.

“The secondary suite is a great feature,” says Matt Oberle, Project Manager at River’s Crossing.  “We want our community to be accessible to people at all stages of life, and a suite helps make living here more affordable.”

We've crunched the numbers for you.

A suite can help a buyer qualify for a mortgage, reduce monthly payments and the time it takes to pay off a home, or allow boomers to look after ageing parents while keeping their own private space.

“50% of rental income from a legal secondary suite can be considered when you’re applying for a mortgage,” says RBC Mortgage Specialist Tracy Amy.  “Depending on all of your circumstances, it might allow you to qualify for a larger mortgage than you expected.”  

Cranbrook’s Living-Stones Developments built this smart family home.  Their aim is to build a quality product at an affordable price, so there isn’t a single inch of wasted space in the design.

The fully equipped 577 sq ft basement suite is a prime example of how much thought went into this home.  It includes an L-shaped kitchen with dining area, laundry in the entry and a separate living room.

Most of the 721 sq ft main floor is dedicated to family living, with an open concept galley kitchen with island and pantry, dining room and living area.

The kitchen in the suite is generously sized and  modern.

Upstairs there’s room for three bedrooms and a laundry nook.  The master bedroom has its own walk-in closet and ensuite with double sink and shower.
