The dining room sits adjacent to the foyer and boasts oversized windows that bring in a flood of natural light. The gourmet kitchen features a 15-foot island, 36-inch gas range, coffee station and built-in pantry. A charming breakfast nook offers a casual dining space. In the evenings, gather with friends and family in the sunken living room that has a gas fireplace and wet bar.

Upstairs, French doors lead into the primary bedroom with a private balcony overlooking Fish Creek Provincial Park. The spa-like ensuite features an oversized, custom tiled shower, a free-standing soaker tub and dual sinks for maximum relaxation. The lower level is a space for fun with a large rec area and a nook to add a games space or a play area for kids.
