Where it is

190 Marina Cove S.E., The Streams of Lake Mahogany


The location

The Streams of Lake Mahogany, where this condo is located, are nestled at the edge of Mahogany Lake, offering year-round lake views with the benefits of a single-family living home. Mahogany Lake is one of 16 man-made lakes in Calgary and is home to Calgary’s largest freshwater lake with more beach area than any other community in the city. The lake boasts 63 acres, two private beach sites and more than 21 acres of beach area. The lake offers year-round activities, from swimming and paddle boats to picnics and skating.


What to love

Using black as the focal interior colour in a home is a bold choice that can have major payoffs if done right. Too much and the home can feel small and dark, while too little can mean the effect isn’t noticeable enough. This condo finds just the right balance with its black walls, cabinetry, marble counters and furniture that are offset with bright splashes of white and gold accents. The result is a sleek, modern and bold effect.

The condo enjoys an open-concept layout blending the living room, dining room and kitchen, connecting to the deck through a wall of spacious windows. The black-clad fireplace offers an ideal space to start socializing with guests before stepping outside to the spacious deck to enjoy drinks or dinner with a view.

Culinary inspiration awaits in the sleek black kitchen with its black marble counters, gold accents and all-black cladding. Built-in storage and wine shelves in the kitchen island blend function with clutter-free design.

Both bedrooms in the condo continue the bold colour trend with blackout curtains and black accents through the furniture. The ensuites, however, reverse the look with white-on-black decor with a deep soaker tub, dual vanities and a glass-enclosed shower.


What to consider

Living on a lake offers plenty of year-round recreation options, all from the comforts of a city. With the single-level design of the condo, it offers an ideal setup for small families, couples or downsizers who love to entertain but will appreciate the ease of mobility in their home.
