Downsizing To Seton Bungalow Brings Joy And Convenience

  • Friday, December 2, 2022

After almost three years of considering a move to a smaller home, Maria and Larry Smith took the plunge, purchasing a bungalow by Trico Homes in the southeast community of Seton.

“When our daughter got married and moved out in 2019, that’s when we really started to think seriously about it,” recalls Larry Smith.

For the past 14 years, they’d been in living in Calgary’s Evergreen community in a large, five-bedroom, 4,100-square-foot, two-storey home. But as retired empty nesters, the home had become too big for them. They wanted something low-maintenance with few or no stairs, a place close to nature and amenities and most importantly of all, their new home had to be within walking distance of their daughter, son-in-law and new grandchild, who had settled in Seton, a master-planned community by Brookfield Residential.

“We didn’t even consider any other communities,” says Larry Smith. “We wanted a new community, a new build home and it had to be a bungalow. And we wanted all of the daily services that we would require within walking distance.”
