Where it is

10 Alexandria Green S.W.

 

The location

Currie Barracks is a Calgary historic site and current-day neighbourhood. The land began as a base for the Canadian Armed Forces in the 1930s and was originally created as an employment project during the Great Depression. Over the years, Currie Barracks has hosted several special events and people, including Queen Elizabeth II. Today, Currie is an inner-city community with 980 homes, more than 1,300 people and several public spaces.

 

What to love

Boasting more than 5,000 square feet of living space, eight bedrooms and six bathrooms, there’s plenty of room for a large family or guests to spend the night.

Inside, the grand entrance leads to a bright and open-concept layout. The gourmet kitchen has a massive island, two dishwashers, a wine fridge and a butler’s pantry with a built-in coffee maker. The living room is the social hub with 19-foot ceilings, a 54-inch fireplace and built-ins, all ideal for hosting friends and family. The formal dining room connects to the deck through patio doors, offering natural light and a great view.

While four bedrooms sit on the second floor, the primary bedroom encompasses the entire third floor. With vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, skylights, and a Romeo and Juliet balcony, it’s a truly private retreat. The spa-inspired ensuite boasts a steam shower, jetted tub and dual vanities for extra pampering.

A two-bedroom legal carriage suite with a kitchen, dining room and laundry is the perfect space for visiting family or grown kids to use.
