Where it is

67 Bel-Aire Place S.W.


The location

Backing onto the Glenmore Reservoir, this home is located in the upscale, southwest neighbourhood of Bel-Aire. It’s just minutes away from South Glenmore Park and the serene Weaselhead Flats, which encompass 237 hectares of preserved natural environment. The home’s location, with its easy access to some of Calgary’s best-loved parks, is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts who want to enjoy the area’s hiking trails, bike paths, wildlife and more.


What to love

Upon stepping inside this home, you’re greeted with a sweeping open concept, soaring vaulted ceilings and an abundance of warm, welcoming light. The luxurious and artistic detailing of the foyer continues throughout the rest of the house, embracing an overall design that’s meant for both quiet family living and grand-scale entertaining. Cozy up to the double-sided fireplace in the large sunken living room or gather in the formal dining room for any special occasion. During business hours, take a seat in the executive office, which is surrounded by an appealing glass wall. When you’re done your work, head downstairs to enjoy some playtime in the media/rec room, break a sweat in the gym or relax with a cool drink at the bar. The thoughtfully designed outdoor garden — which includes hard and soft landscaping, two waterfalls and a pergola — offers outdoor entertaining space and quiet places to sit and enjoy the sun.


What to consider

Just 10 minutes from downtown, and close to schools, shops, the Glencoe Club and plenty of green space, this beautifully designed home is ideal for those who enjoy an active lifestyle.
