Choosing Your Perfect Home in Wolf Willow: Laned Homes
If you’re looking to buy a house in Calgary, you’ll need to answer two questions early on: which community do you want to live in and what style of home will suit your lifestyle? Once you’ve found your perfect community to settle down in (Wolf Willow), it’s time to choose your home model and homebuilder.
We’ll cover laned homes more in-depth in this blog, but first, let’s do a quick run-down of all your choices in this south Calgary community.
Which home styles are available in Wolf Willow?
Wolf Willow currently has 9 builder partners with 5 home models to choose from: condo, townhomes, duplexes, laned, and front garage.
A condominium, or a “condo” as they’re more often referred to, is a unit built within a community of units. While your unit is private, sometimes there will be common shared spaces within the building that all residents have access to, such as a pool, green space, event room, gym, etc. These are typically single-story living with 1 or 2 bedrooms, so condos are perfect for buyers looking for a smaller space, no stairs, or no yard maintenance.
Wolf Willow has 2 condo builders: Cove Properties and Truman Homes.
Townhomes are multi-storey homes that share side walls with their neighbouring units on either one or two sides. These are a great option for buyers who want their own private entrances with a small amount of green space to maintain, typically either in front of or behind their property.
Wolf Willow has 3 townhouse builders: alliston at home, Look Master Builder, and WestCreek Homes.
Duplexes are like townhomes, as they are also multi-level homes that share a wall with another unit and have private entrances. Duplexes are typically larger than townhomes, and they only share a wall with one other unit. Both homes in a duplex can be owned independently or together as one unit.
There are 2 duplex builders in Wolf Willow: Shane Homes and WestCreek Homes.
Front garage homes are detached, single family homes that have the garage and driveway in front of your home. This is a great option for buyers who want direct access from the garage into their home. Front garage homes also have spacious rooms with plenty of storage space, which is perfect for big families that want room to explore their interests, especially in such an active outdoor community like Wolf Willow!
Wolf Willow has 4 front garage builders: Jayman BUILT, Morrison Homes, Trico Homes, and WestCreek Homes.
Why Laned Homes?
And finally, the feature of our blog today, laned homes! These detached, single-family homes typically come with an option to build a detached garage behind the house. Laned homes are the more affordable option for growing families looking for their starter home, that need more space and privacy than a duplex . They have great curb appeal, featuring the front porch rather than a garage, and they come with a more private backyard than a duplex or townhome.
There are 3 laned home builders in Wolf Willow: Jayman BUILT, Morrison Homes, and Trico Homes. We’ll go a bit more into detail on each of these builders and the home styles they offer.

With Jayman, you’ll be treating your family to a luxurious home near the Bow River, where purposeful innovation is woven into the design and function of every home they build.
