Where it is

120 15 St. N.W.


The design

The transformation of this home from a simple bungalow to its current modern and luxurious state is thanks to its current owner and seller. Naomi Esfahani, a local and accomplished engineer, took the opportunity during the COVID-19 lockdown to transform her bungalow with new features. A stunning penthouse-style loft, illuminated open riser staircase, soaring vaulted ceilings and a luxurious bathroom with a steam shower and towel warmer are just a few of the new additions.


What to love

With its striking blue siding and white trim, the bungalow’s exterior gives the home a welcoming feel right from the start. Stepping inside reveals an expansive and luxurious interior. Balancing white decor with rich, warm wood accents creates a sense of warmth and comfort throughout. The kitchen on the main floor boasts a rich wood cladding with a central island. The cozy space opens to the main floor, offering an ideal setup for a dining room and entertainment space for any occasion.

Adjacent to the kitchen stands the illuminated open stair riser, which is a focal point of the main room and leads to the oversized loft. The space is designed to be the primary bedroom, boasting ample space, lighting and comfort to enjoy as a private retreat. The loft also features a small office space ideal for getting through extra work or a full day of working from home. The primary ensuite has features like full-height Italian tiles, a steam shower, in-floor heating and a towel warmer. Two additional bedrooms and a bathroom await on the main level, as well as a private backyard.


What to consider

The downtown core, Bow River pathways, local schools and more are within blocks of this home, offering plenty of perks for any homeowner. The ample space inside makes the home ideal for families, couples or downsizers who still love entertaining.
