Where it is

11832 Elbow Drive S.W.

 

The land

Surrounded by trees, this property allows homeowners to feel as though they’re immersed in nature without having to move to an acreage outside the city. Plus, the trees bring plenty of aesthetic appeal to the property.

 

What to love

With its white walls and curved archways, this home evokes a charming, Mediterranean feel from the moment you step inside. At the rear of the house, there’s a bright sunroom that would be perfect as a home office or just a relaxing space. Outside, the backyard is a true oasis, with a covered pergola, stylish hardscaping, a deck for sunny entertaining and green space with a playhouse for kids. The triple detached garage offers plenty of extra space and is currently serving as a converted studio. There’s also a rooftop deck above the garage — a great spot for stargazing while enjoying a late-night digestif.

 

What to consider

With its four bedrooms and close proximity to local schools (two of which are a five-minute walk away), this family-friendly home is perfect for setting down some roots. Its quiet location along Elbow Drive further adds to its appeal, with nearby Fish Creek Provincial Park providing additional access to nature escapes and pathways for walks or runs.
