    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.

    30 years ago, Tina Olivero looked into the future and saw an opportunity to make a difference for her province and people. That difference came in the form of the oil and gas sector. Six years before there was even a drop of oil brought to the shores of Newfoundland, she founded The Oil and Gas Magazine (THE OGM) from a back room in her home on Signal Hill Road, in St. John’s, Newfoundland. A single mother, no financing, no previous journalism or oil and gas experience, she forged ahead, with a creative vision and one heck of a heaping dose of sheer determination. With her pioneering spirit, Ms. Olivero developed a magazine that would educate, inspire, motivate and entertain oil and gas readers around the world — She prides herself in marketing and promoting our province and resources in unprecedented ways. The OGM is a magazine that focuses on our projects, our people, our opportunities and ultimately becomes the bridge to new energy outcomes and a sustainable new energy world. Now diversifying into the communications realms, a natural progression from the Magazine, The OGM now offers an entirely new division - Oil & Gas Media. Today, The Oil and Gas Magazine is a global phenomenon that operates not only in Newfoundland, but also in Calgary and is read by oil and gas enthusiasts in Norway, Aberdeen, across the US and as far reaching as Abu Dhabi, in the Middle East. Believing that Energy is everyone’s business, Ms. Olivero has combined energy + culture to embrace the worlds commitment to a balance of work and home life as well as fostering a foundation for health and well being. In this era of growth and development business and lifestyle are an eloquent mix, there is no beginning or end. Partnering with over 90 oil and gas exhibitions and conferences around the world, Ms. Olivero's role as a Global Visionary is to embrace communication in a way that fosters oil and gas business and industry growth in new and creative ways.
