Where it is
2036 8 Avenue S.E.
Established in 1875, Inglewood is one of Calgary’s oldest neighbourhoods. Between 1906 and 1912, many brick structures were built in the community, and some have since become heritage buildings.
Today, several of the new developments and homes in the area are deliberately designed to reflect the authentic character of Inglewood’s original homes. This modern farmhouse-inspired home is one example of a property in the community that melds classic designs with modern-day flourishes. The exterior features steep arches and peaks, oversized windows and custom millwork, all of which add to the home’s historic feel. The interior, meanwhile, is sleek and modern, with luxurious finishings and all the perks that come with a brand-new build.
What to love
From its great location to its alluring design details, there’s plenty to love about this farmhouse-inspired detached home. The modern interior features a white colour palette that balances nicely against wood accents and custom millwork. The dreamy kitchen has custom LED skirt lighting for late-night baking, as well as soft-close hardware and a hidden walk-in pantry. Plus, the oversized island offers plenty of seating and cooking space — perfect for entertaining. The living room overlooks the backyard and welcomes in plenty of natural light, which adds warmth to the cedar wood-panel feature wall and hearth.
Upstairs, the two secondary bedrooms each have full private ensuites, making them ideal for family members or as guest rooms. The primary bedroom has motion-activated lights, a heated ensuite floor, a walk-in shower and free-standing soaker tub, and plenty of space. The basement is just as luxurious, with nine-foot ceilings and a large recreation area with a built-in media centre, pocket office and home gym.
What to consider
Built in 2022, this home is completely brand-new, despite its heritage-inspired accents. Nestled in Inglewood, it is steps away from the Bow River, ample pathways, the Inglewood Wildlands and nearby shops, restaurants, breweries and more. Featuring just over 3,000 square feet of space, it’s a great home for young families, trendy couples or anyone interested in living in a historic yet modern community.
