Decora Homes’ Stunning Greenbryre Show Home Has it All
It’s the season for entertaining — whether it’s an intimate family get-together or a large-scale holiday cocktail party with all the bells and whistles. Luckily, Decora Homes has thought of everything entertainment in their remarkable show home at 413 Greenbryre Lane.
This gorgeous six-bedroom walkout bungalow is priced at $1,999,000. Built on half an acre, the home is part of Greenbryre Estates in Corman Park on the southeast edge of Saskatoon. Whether you're a frequent entertainer or a holidays-only host, this home will make entertaining a cinch.
“Decora Homes has been in business for more than 10 years. We thrive on custom home building in areas such as Greenbryre Estates, Aspen Ridge, Evergreen and Rosewood. We also do infills in established neighbourhoods, renovations and additions,” says Decora Homes’ co-owner Rhonda Iula. The company’s other co-owners are Rhonda’s husband Ricky Iula and Dustin Grenier.
413 Greenbryre Lane is filled with amazing features and luxury finishes. Talented local artisans such as Remnant Steel and Dragonfly Artistic Metals had a hand in creating what makes the house unique. The main floor is 2,383 square feet and includes three bedrooms and a separate laundry room. Its great room has 20-foot ceilings, a fireplace and large windows overlooking the Greenbryre Golf & Country Club golf course. Outdoor entertaining comes naturally; the great room opens right onto on a large deck, complete with an outdoor fireplace and a gourmet grilling area. And while some acreage developments require a longer commute into the city, homeowners in Greenbryre Estates have immediate access to the Circle Drive and a quick drive downtown.
The home’s dream kitchen includes quartz countertops, multiple floor-to-ceiling cabinets, a large island for gathering and upgraded built-in appliances (including a six-burner stovetop). Caterers could easily set up in this kitchen, but it’s just as comfortable a space for a couple preparing a romantic supper.
One favourite detail of the home is a kitchen coffee bar area with a nifty chalkboard as the backsplash. Nearby is a one-of-a-kind powder room featuring a sink with a live-edge wood countertop that Rhonda conceptualized.
“413 Greenbryre Lane includes a triple-car attached finished garage with heated floors and plenty of room for storage,” says Rhonda. “A mudroom with four lockers is something any family with athletic equipment and winter clothing will covet. Landscaping of the property will also be included in the selling price.”
This home is ideal for a larger family or retirees. There are not too many stairs and the master bedroom is located conveniently on the main floor. The master suite has a stunning walk-in closet and a five-piece bathroom with a custom-tiled shower, a soaker tub and a dual sink with an onyx countertop. Again, huge windows overlook the golf course and surrounding Prairie landscape. The two other main floor bedrooms could serve as a nursery, a study or a home office. “At Decora Homes, our signature is lots of windows and, at nighttime, homeowners can enjoy our customized accent lighting.”
The home’s basement level has three more spacious bedrooms, a family room with a Tyndall stone fireplace and a bar area. The bar area is ideal for entertaining and includes a fridge, a dishwasher and a wine rack. Beside the bar is a home gym, notable for its SoHo loft aesthetic and exposed brick walls. Each bedroom has its own temperature controls and big closets. A full bathroom is also downstairs.
Decora Homes has three interior designers on staff and an architectural technologist. Custom homes take approximately eight months to one year to build. “The best way to get a feeling for our quality of workmanship is to visit the Greenbryre show home,” says Rhonda.
And the question Saskatchewan homeowners all want to know the answer to? What trends is Rhonda seeing in custom building these days. “Elevators are being designed into homes for future planning. So are nanny or mother-in-law suites. We are also working on homes with outdoor or indoor pools, and home theatres.”
Dedicated readers of home décor magazines will notice that, as bedroom closets become increasingly functional, bedroom furniture today is becoming more than just a bed and side tables. As a result, armoires and chests of drawers are going the way of the dodo bird.
“We can custom build a home to any style — that could be Country French, Craftsman, Rustic, Contemporary Modern, Fusion or Mediterranean. Decora Homes relies on referrals from our clients to their friends and family. We welcome you to stop by our Greenbryre show home.”
