The property

Located in Rural Foothills County, this home offers the perfect balance between luxury living and cozy retreat. Situated in a community that’s rich in culture and history, the property encompasses eight acres of land, with sweeping views of the Rocky Mountains, a beautifully landscaped yard and even a manicured, four-hole putting green to enjoy.


What to love

Luxurious details paired with subtle, thoughtful design make this home look and feel like a true oasis. The property offers plenty of options for entertaining friends and family or just enjoying a night to yourself. There’s an indoor pool, a hot tub and a waterfall feature with outside access to a massive patio that’s perfect for some suntanning after an invigorating swim. Downstairs, the walkout basement has a media and recreation area with a full circular wet bar, a sunroom and access to the landscaped yard. The gourmet kitchen is the perfect place to cook and features a casual breakfast nook and deck access for taking in the panoramic mountain views and romantic sunsets. The dining room, meanwhile, is ideal for more formal meals — the room’s custom, 1930s hammered-tin ceiling and crystal light fixtures add an immediate sense of elegance to any occasion. Outside, there are several patio areas to enjoy, either with friends and family or for some quiet time alone with nature’s soundtrack.


What to consider

Situated just minutes away from the shops in Okotoks, and close to Strathcona Tweedsmuir School, this home, with its four bedrooms and five bathrooms, is ideal for families or couples who like to entertain. The bedrooms can be easily converted into home offices or saved for a growing family. Rural Foothills County also offers plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation enthusiasts, thanks to its easy access to the mountains and nature trails.
