The history

Built in 1918, this Arts and Crafts style home has been updated over the years but maintains its lovely heritage bones. The Arts and Crafts style came out of Britain in the 19th century and emphasized simple design and handcrafted details, partly as a reaction to the ornate Victorian era. In North America, it evolved into Craftsman style. The bungalow was one of its main architecture styles, especially as the movement came to Calgary. 

What to love

All the Craftsman details. The architectural style includes having a simple front porch, site lines from the kitchen into the living spaces and handcrafted details like the wood beams. This house has Brazilian cherry hardwood, Douglas Fir trim, the original brick wood burning fireplace and crystal door knobs. The modern kitchen has antique white maple cabinets. It also has a fully finished basement. We featured this home in Avenue magazine in 2002 as a beautiful example of the Arts and Crafts style in Calgary.

What consider

302 is a loving balance of traditional character and modern updates. It's ideal for an owner who loves the Arts and Crafts style.
