Where it is
1320 Prospect Ave. S.W.
One of Calgary’s most desirable neighbourhoods, Upper Mount Royal has a history that dates back more than 100 years. Development of the community began in the early 1900s, when wealthy immigrants began to purchase land in the area to build their homes. Today, there are 68 heritage homes still standing in Mount Royal. While this particular home was built in 1998, its attractive stone exterior blends in beautifully with the historical feel of its location.
What to love
This home has something for everyone. Avid entertainers can host dinner guests in the gorgeous grand dining room or outside on the covered deck, which comes complete with an outdoor kitchen area. Home chefs can whip up delectable cuisine in the chef’s kitchen, which has an oversized island, granite countertops, a six-burner stove and Sub-Zero appliances. Wine connoisseurs can head downstairs to the wine cellar, where up to 84 bottles can either be wall-mounted or displayed on the shelves. And for those who love a little pampering, an underground tunnel leads from the garage to a separate 600-square-foot spa housing a hot tub, dry sauna, steam shower and two-piece powder room. Even kids can have their own special space, thanks to the cool tree house in the backyard.
