Situated on an expansive lot with greenery as far as the eye can see, you'll find a custom-built Spanish-style hacienda that's about to hit the auction block.
If the home's old-world artistry and luxurious finishes weren't enough to entice interested buyers to get their cheque books out, perhaps knowing that Acadamy Award-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio once called it home might do the trick.
Located just 20 minutes outside of downtown Calgary, the 15,382 square-foot, seven-bedroom, eight-bathroom home is located at 209 Pinnacle Ridge Place Street West and sits on a two-acre parcel of land.
According to the listing, the private, property sits on a cul-de-sac and offers “exquisite mountain and valley views,” which Mr. DiCaprio undoubtedly took in while filming the 2015 box-office hit The Revenant.

Boasting opulent coffered ceilings, wide-plank hardwood floors, hand-crafted Venetian plaster walls, and a blend of the finest imported and local materials, the home exudes elegance from every room you step in.
In the warmer months, the south-facing courtyard with a barbecue area and fire pit is the perfect backdrop for al fresco entertaining, while cold weather distractions are plentiful inside, including an enviable theatre room, a gym, a wine cellar and tasting room, a game room with kitchenette and wet bar, and an indoor pool. Plus, there's also an elevator and a heated five-car garage, which will surely be of use during the chillier months.
The home is ideal for those who love to cook and entertain, as it boasts an impressive chef's kitchen that's complete with custom, ceiling-height cabinetry, two centre islands, marble countertops, a copper apron sink, a butler’s pantry, and breakfast bar seating.
However, the star of the home is easily the serene and private master wing, which features a cozy sitting room with a fireplace, custom his and her dressing rooms, and a luxurious spa-worthy bathroom custom-designed for two.

The home is ten minutes from Springbank Airport and the Trans-Canada Highway, a 40-minute drive from Banff, and 40 minutes to the Calgary International Airport.
Bidding opens January 22 at 4 pm MST and runs until January 27 through Concierge Auctions in cooperation with Vivienne Huisman of Sotheby’s International Realty Canada, with the property selling to the highest bidder.
While the home is currently listed for $8.5M CAD on MLS, this is a no reserve auction so the opening bids can start anywhere, and will likely be much lower than the listing price. And just remember, getting to sleep in the same bedroom as DiCaprio did? Now, that's priceless.
