Where it is

2000 226 Ave. S.E.

 

The land

This home is situated on a treed environmental reserve, which means the land surrounding it won’t see any future developments. Protected environmental reserves help to preserve natural spaces for wildlife while also providing beautiful areas for recreation and fostering an understanding of the importance of nature. In Calgary, the natural area management plan designates, protects and maintains areas like Edworthy Park, Weaselhead and Prince’s Island.

 

What to love

Reflecting the environmental appeal of the land it sits on, this home has a gorgeous interior that features minimalistic decor and European influences. The floor-to-ceiling windows and doors cover the full width of the home, welcoming a flood of natural light and unobstructed views. The engineered hardwood flooring, matte black kitchen and continuous cedar wall balance warm, welcoming elements with a modern feel. Each bedroom has its own private covered deck with motorized window coverings and walk-in closets. Downstairs, the walkout basement boasts radiant heated concrete floors, an expansive recreation room with a bar and custom wine storage for 110 bottles. With plenty of privacy and over 4,100 square feet of living space, you can escape the city and reconnect with nature without sacrificing convenience.

 

What to consider

There are no neighbours around here, so if you enjoy privacy, this is a great spot. Just 30 minutes from downtown Calgary, the location means you can easily access the city and enjoy some urban activities, then return home to peace and quiet, surrounded by nature.
