At the same time, Sandhu arrived from India to also study business at Bow Valley. They met in the first semester and sparks flew. We apologize, but this video has failed to load.

We speak Punjabi and belong to the Sikh faith,” Sandhu says. “But it was meant to be.” After a “COVID wedding,” the kismet that brought them together worked its magic by leading them to their first home. When the couple felt they were ready to buy, they used a realtor who happened to be Sandhu’s manager’s girlfriend. It was she who booked their first showing at Holland Park, a new townhome development by Excel Homes in the Genstar community of Walden. Advertisement Article content “Maria fell in love with the place at very first sight. It was hard to make her look at anything else,” says Sandhu. Holland Park is a modern, contemporary European-style community on 210th Avenue S.E. The two- and three-bedroom, three-storey units with garages and covered decks are 935 square feet to 1,206 square feet, priced from the high $200,000s. Granja and Sandhu purchased Plan R, one of the smaller of the five floor plans. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom home has a narrow footprint at just 935 square feet, which Sandhu says is perfect for the two of them. They took possession in May. “There’s lots of natural light from one end to the other. This specific townhome felt more spacious than 935 square feet,” Sandhu says. Advertisement Article content “It was important. Both of us came from countries with so much daylight in all seasons,” Granja says in agreement. Holland Park launched in 2018 and sales have picked up significantly in the last year. Excel has released two more buildings in the 20-building project ahead of schedule. There’s a good selection of each floor plan, with models available this summer and others pre-selling for possession this autumn. Plans S2, S3 and Plan U have two-bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. Plan V is the largest with three-bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, starting in the $300,000s. Each home has stacked laundry on the third level. Other features include floating vanities with undercabinet lighting and double sinks in the larger models. Advertisement Article content “We have units backing onto the community garden, some south-facing and some end units available. Overall, we’re more than halfway sold,” says Excel marketing manager Kristina Plank. “It’s a beautiful Scandinavian-inspired project. Each unit offers buyers room to grow with low maintenance and a community garden in the middle.” Buyers can choose a light, medium or dark palette for their interiors. The three model homes, which opened in February, showcase each of the three types. The features are anything but standard. “You don’t have to do much. If you wanted more upgrades, you could. But there’s quartz countertops, black fixtures, nine-foot ceilings and all showers are tiled with glass doors. Everything is done already,” she says. Advertisement
