Where it is

2634 3 Ave. N.W.


The location

Before West Hillhurst became the community it is today, the area was home to a farm owned by the Rileys, a prominent pioneer family. Thomas and Georgiana, along with their 10 children, owned nearly 50 acres of land and ran a successful agricultural enterprise called The Riley & Sons. In 1909, following the death of Thomas, the land was left to the City of Calgary.

Riley Park, which exists today in West Hillhurst, is named after the Riley family. The park is a green oasis with a cricket patch, a wading pool, the Senator Patrick Burns Memorial Rock Garden and lush open spaces. It’s a short five-minute drive from this home’s location.


What to love

There’s plenty to love about this custom-built home, which features 2,924 square feet of fully developed living space. Through a curved front door, the main floor boasts a cozy yet bright den that doubles as the perfect home office. The kitchen, dining area and living room are all connected in an open concept, making it ideal for entertaining or gathering with family.

Culinary enthusiasts can make the most of the Viking and Miele stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and ample storage room in the kitchen. Casual meals can be enjoyed around the kitchen island or seated at the dining table before moving to the living room to gather around the fireplace.

Upstairs, the primary bedroom stays cozy year-round with its own fireplace. The ensuite boasts vaulted ceilings, in-floor heating and bright decor with a private room for the toilet and a glass-front walk-in shower. Downstairs, after powering through a workout in the home gym, treat yourself to some time in the fully equipped spa room with a multi-person dry sauna, steam shower and heated towel rack.


What to consider

With an oversized deck, a north-facing backyard and a quiet street, this home enjoys privacy and quiet throughout the day. It’s a short drive to Kensington or the downtown core and steps from the Bow River for morning walks.
