Artesia at Heritage Pointe offers rural living to urbanites
Dramatic homes from Homes by Avi seamlessly merge country with sophistication
Only a few moments away from the city limits of Calgary, the inviting neighbourhood of Artesia at Heritage Pointe awaits in De Winton with views of the Rocky Mountains and Bow River Valley Vistas.
“Artesia is this special little place with such a strong sense of community,” Sandy Tregarthen, sales support specialist for Homes by Avi, said, “it’s a little gem that is tucked in the South East corner of Deerfoot and Dunbow road.”
With immediate access to Deerfoot Trail and MacLeod Trail, the community of Artesia offers that rural living experience with all of the urban conveniences near by, including the Seton area and Calgary South Health Campus. For those taking transit, the Shawnessy LRT station is 9 minutes away and the downtown core is only a half hour away.
“We are able to offer a lifestyle choice second to none,” project administrator, Tammy Mantika said.
“Heritage Pointe has established a distinctive brand by telling a story that portrays the value of living in a community that is luxurious, sustainable and one that promotes a healthy lifestyle,” Mantika said.
Estate lots with great views and even better neighbours
Artesia boasts estate-sized lots creating a sense of openness and freedom while maintaining high levels of privacy.
“In the same area as many South East Calgary communities that you would find five to eight single family homes, Artesia has just two,” Mantika said, “Residents appreciate the spacing between homes in this unique enclave setting.”
Each lot also backs onto a gorgeous backdrop, whether it is the ravine, one of the many water features, or a green space, home owners are guaranteed a stunning view and the peace of mind that comes with rural living.
Tregarthen said she even finds the weather is more forgiving in Artesia, “it seems sunnier and less windy,” she said, “It can be snowing or windy somewhere else, but still calm where we are — the further south you go, the better the weather is, right?”
Healthy and happy communities
Artesia at Heritage Pointe is moments away from Heritage Pointe Golf Course — one of Canada’s best ranking courses featuring 27 challenging holes that Artesia’s residents can get a discounted membership.
Of Artesia’s 137 acres, over 50 per cent of land is designated as open space, trails and parkways, water features, environmental reserve and private amenities providing its residents with plenty of ways to stay fit and have fun.
The community offers a variety of facilities for all kinds of outdoor activities to promote healthy living including pickle ball, basketball, volleyball, Frisbee golf, playgrounds for the young ones, a gathering pavilion for picnics, over 4 km of paved pathways and there is even a hill for tobogganing, Mantika explained.
The Heritage Pointe Golf Course offers 27 holes for a discounted price for Heritage Pointe & Artesia residents —
yet another perk for buying in this community.

Beautiful homes and unique architecture
“The architecture at Artesia is enduring and classic, keeping with the upscale character Heritage Pointe is known for,” Mantika said, “Architectural styles include classic English and French Country, Georgian, Tudor and Craftsman with an infusion of Prairie elements.”
Homes by Avi is one of the builders creating masterpieces in Artesia at Heritage Pointe.
Sandy Tregarthen, the sales support specialist of Homes by Avi, explained that the primary builds in this community are two stories and bungalows that embrace a combination of elegance, sensibility and dramatic features.
“Our designs are always very innovative,” she said, “We strive to use the square footage in the very best possible way.”
Although, she added, functionality does not mean that beauty and character of the designs are lost in Homes by Avi homes.
“By adding vaults and other unique features we really create a dramatic atmosphere to a functional space,” she said.
Homes by Avi are currently framing their show home in Artesia at Heritage Pointe and Tregarthen expects that it should be completed by Spring 2016.
“We built this home as a show home in Valley Point and it was stunning,” Tregarthen said in regards to their future bungalow show home.
“We have made some modifications to capture the full view of the pond,” where the two storey fire place once sat in the middle of the soaring back wall of the great room, is now nano doors — or full glass overlooking a beautiful water feature. “It’s a stunning home,” Tregarthen said.
Some of the bungalows from Homes by Avi feature an optional pop-top ceiling making the home appear similar to a two storey from the street, while creating a really dramatic living area inside using a portion of the ceiling for a guest bedroom suite while maintaining high ceilings and open atmosphere.
The team at Homes by Avi is excited to be one of the newest builders added to the Artesia community.
“[Artesia] is a very unique niche community,” Tregarthen said, “To me, it’s a precious gem.”
Some models that Homes by Avi is offering in the area are the Grant, the Waterton, the Waterford, the Bolton, the Campbell, the Tewkesbury, the Rundle and the Cromwell, with the addition of some other models to follow.
