Where it is

930 9 St., Canmore


The design

Spread across three levels and 5,000 square feet, there’s ample room to enjoy everything in this home. Two of the home’s bedrooms are located in the lower-level guest suite, which has its own separate entrance, small kitchen, laundry and living room. This is a great area to host friends or family during the holidays so they can have their own space.

A separate, legal one-bedroom suite sits above the garage outside the house. It boasts its own sweeping views, vaulted ceilings, a private deck, full kitchen, three-piece bath, living room and laundry. It’s a great option to rent out, provides a nearby space for family to move into if needed or can be another space to host extended friends and family.


What to love

The home has a charming, fairy tale-cottage vibe with its stone-clad exterior, ivy growing around the front entrance and a backdrop of stunning mountain views. Stepping inside, the home brings a balance of luxury, comfort and coziness. Arched, open doorways connect each room, creating a sense of flow and light throughout. The spacious living room provides a welcoming space to gather with friends and family or entertain guests. The cozy kitchen is designed around a central island, has ceiling-height cabinets, access to the backyard and a nook with an office setup.

The primary bedroom enjoys its own spacious layout with a private deck and true ensuite retreat with a soaker tub, chandelier, walk-in closet and built-in shower.

The dining room steals the show in this home though, with double French doors leading to a deck with stunning mountainscapes. A stone-clad fireplace with cozy seating makes the deck an ideal spot to enjoy the views as they change with the seasons.


What to consider

This home offers a great place to live for large families, mountain explorers or those who enjoy hosting friends and family frequently. The home’s central Canmore location means there are ample walking pathways and opportunities for shopping and recreation available to enjoy year-round.
