One of the Priciest Properties in Calgary Just Hit the Market
Last week, we introduced you to an enchanting home for sale in Toronto’s Scarborough Bluff’s neighbourhood that looked as if it was plucked from the pages of your favourite fairytale. To which Calgary said: hold my beer.
Now on the market for $9.7 million, this palatial home, dubbed Calgary’s iconic castle, is situated on nearly one-acre surrounded by expansive landscaped grounds and is the only completely gated estate in Aspen Heights.
With over 14,000-sq.ft of living space, the Calgary home features six-bedrooms — including a nanny/guest room — eight-bathrooms, a full-sized elevator, a separate carriage house that’s over 750-sq.ft, and two oversized heated garages accommodating five vehicles and parking for ten.
Built in 2010, the home features an elegant facade wrapped entirely in rundle stone that spans the home’s two wings and turret in the centre, while the entire property is also bordered by a stone and wrought iron fence and gate for the utmost security and privacy.
Design finishes include reinforced foundation walls, a massive covered concrete rear deck, fence pillar piling extending below ground, hidden eavestroughs, a rubber slate and copper roof, and metal and wood-clad windows.
Inside the home, you’ll find soaring ceilings and light-filled interiors boasting grand finishes like extensive wainscotting, floor-to-ceiling windows, coffered ceilings, and marble flooring.
As soon as you’ll walk in, you’ll be greeted by the marble foyer with a Swarovski crystal chandelier and a winding double staircase, that leads to the grand parlour, while the striking central hallway leads you to both the west and east wings of the estate.
According to the listing page, the home was designed for multi-generational families in today’s times, as the impressive floor plan offers countless rooms for both work and play.
