Where it is

1440, 540 14 Ave. S.W.

 

The location

Home to more than 20,000 Calgarians, the Beltline is an ever-growing and popular neighbourhood to call home. Featuring a blend of high-rise and low condominiums and vibrant scenery, the area is also home to dozens of restaurants, cafés and specialty food shops.

But before this bustling community came to be, it was once home to many of Calgary’s first warehouses, thanks to its proximity to the Canadian Pacific Railway. Around that period, the area was named after the 1912 streetcar route on 17th Avenue S.W. — the “belt line” which was connected to downtown. The first established districts in the Beltline were Connaught in 1905 and later Victoria Park in 1914.

 

What to love

Two outdoor balconies, a private three-season sunroom and expansive windows are just a few features to love about this penthouse. Inside, the foyer blends an elegant look and feel with an open floor plan that sweeps into the living and dining areas. The family room has a charming wood-burning fireplace to pair alongside the sweeping city views. The kitchen offers ceiling-height cabinets with under-cabinet lighting, a wine fridge and plenty of extra seating along the kitchen island.

Each bedroom enjoys a built-in closet organizer, while the primary bedroom is a true retreat with dual walk-in closets, a private powder room, a wood-burning fireplace and a spa-like ensuite. The ensuite itself boasts a massive soaker tub, walk-in steam shower, coffee station, makeup area and a wine/Champagne fridge, so you can fully indulge in a spa retreat from the comforts of home. The primary bedroom also enjoys access to the three-seasons sunroom. This space is designed with relaxation in mind, featuring striking city views to catch the sunrises or sunsets over a glass of wine.

 

What to consider

The condo’s Beltline location, just off 17th Avenue S.W. and mere steps away from some of the best restaurants, coffee shops, amenities and nightlife fun, brings a lot of appeal to this penthouse. The Rosewood Estates also provides residents exclusive access to a social room, fitness area and secure bike storage.
