Where it is

2231 3 Ave. N.W.


The land

Today, West Hillhurst is an inner northwest Calgary community with a mixture of older homes and infill developments. When the city originally annexed the area in 1907, little development was done until 1945. During that period, several Victory homes were built as housing for soldiers returning from World War II. These homes were designed to last for five years, but today, many of the homes still stand and exist among the modern builds. The community’s proximity to downtown, Memorial Drive and nearby universities make it an ideal area for families or older couples to settle down.


What to love

If you love entertaining, look no further than this West Hillhurst home. The grand entrance welcomes guests and homeowners with soaring 18-foot ceilings, expansive windows and tiled flooring. The gourmet kitchen is outfitted to bring culinary dreams to life with top-of-the-line appliances, ample counter space, cabinets and plenty of space to move around. The kitchen layout also means you can easily cook and host guests in the same space.

Each of the four bedrooms upstairs is its own private retreat with lavish ensuites and spacious closets. The primary bedroom is just as tranquil, with an expansive layout featuring its own lounge, a stunning walk-in closet and a luxurious ensuite with a glass steam shower and two-person soaker tub.

If you head downstairs to the basement, you’ll find it’s fully outfitted for entertaining. Showcase your wine collection in the wine room and cellar, continue the fun at the built-in bar, gather around the fireplace or head outside. The blend of patios and decks creates an outdoor oasis surrounded by sunlight and greenery.


What to consider

This property is an ideal spot for anyone looking for a blend of comfort, style and luxury, a great space for entertaining or an established community. Its proximity to local schools, dining and retail options, and walking pathways are great for young couples, families, older couples and more.
