    This Could Be Yours, Nestled in the Shadow of the Rockies

    Imagine the luxury of finishing your workday sipping your favorite cocktail on a sprawling deck; before you an unobstructed view of the Rockies that spans from the mountains north of the Banff Township and full south to the Porcupine Hills; the rolling foothills falling below, dotted with clusters of trees and wide open meadows, fill the space in between.

    Only 15 minutes from south Calgary off highway 22X, this pristine custom-designed home, built in 1999, boasts a painting-in-waiting from every one of its floor-to-ceiling windows. With 3500 ft2 on the main level, and another 3000 ft2 on the walkout level, this home has unlimited options for office space, studio, guest accommodations and all the storage to match.

    The artist/owner’s eye for colour and design are evident throughout this warm and welcoming home.  Subtle greens, buttery yellows and ochre walls create a backdrop for the abundance of bookshelves, art niches and the river rock wood-burning fireplace.  All windows have luxury draperies and blinds, European shutters to buffer wind and snow, and help keep the home warm in winter and cool in summer.

    Despite the immense luxury of space, natural light and flow of design, the home is equipped with numerous practical (and impressive!) safety features:  a natural gas generator becomes an automatic back-up power source in the event of an outage; a 3000-litre three-part water storage and movement system, which pulls water from the underground aquifer is housed in the basement.  Unlike most well-drawn water sources, this unique system allows for water usage despite any interruptions due to inclement acts of nature.  A massive walk-in pantry can store a two-year supply of goods.

    A perfect private setting for any event (formal or informal), the entire property has been landscaped and maintained professionally. Pride of ownership is evident throughout this property; everything has been maintained immaculately!

    From the walkout, an additional private entry suite with a bathroom can happily serve as a guest wing, an office, a studio or a retreat.  Steps from the main house, a 250 ft2 cabin with internet is nestled in the trees for additional private or creative options.

    Boulders, trees, perennials and an asphalt circular drive from the main road maximize every view of the twelve-acres nestled at the southwest corner of the 5000 acre Cross Nature Conservancy.  The beauty of this property is how the scenery evolves with the changes in season, the shifts in weather and the evolution of the surrounding natural landscape.

    Revisit your dream of waking each day as the morning sun kisses the Rockies; live with a view that enlivens your senses, your mind and your spirit.  Come home to the Shadow of the Rockies.
