Where it is

1037 Premier Way S.W.


The history

Built in 1987, this home is situated in the southwest neighbourhood of Elbow Park. While most of the area that makes up modern-day Elbow Park was homesteaded in the 1880s, development of the land didn’t really begin until the City of Calgary annexed it in 1907. By the start of World War I, Elbow Park was well-established as one of the city’s first purpose-built residential suburbs. Today, it is among the most sought-after inner-city communities in Calgary.


What to love

With its grand foyer, soaring ceilings, hardwood floors and vine-covered wraparound deck, this home has a European charm that is felt both inside and out. The main level features large, open rooms with plenty of living space, from the formal dining room, which is ideal for hosting dinner guests, to the well-equipped kitchen, which is perfect for preparing delicious meals. The main attraction in the basement is the 250-square-foot wine cellar, with classic wood features and enough space to seat eight for dinner. Outside, you’ll find a fully landscaped yard with perennial gardens, the wraparound deck and an inviting, gazebo-covered hot tub.


What to consider

Ideally located, this home is within walking distance of the Glencoe Club, Elbow Park School, William Reid School, expansive river pathways and Sandy Beach Park. It’s a great spot for families, outdoor enthusiasts or those looking to bring a little European living to their lives.
