What other way is there to say “home sweet home” after you take off your shoes and step on to in-floor heating on all levels after your commute back from the city?

A cup of cocoa while you’re up, please!
Whatever the occasion you’re celebrating with friends and family, you have plenty of room here in the dining room to host your long table event.
Cap off the evening by singing songs on the piano — who needs dessert when you can have this musical treat? It’s calorie free.
A beautiful rustic kitchen to cook all of your favourite meals in the middle of the forest, and if you’re feeling like a more relaxed meal…
You can enjoy that here while you’re soaking in the private landscape.
Depending on what you’re cooking up, it may take a while, so you don’t have to worry about entertaining when you have a cozy nook right here for your guests to sit and visit by another fireplace.
It would be impossible to wake up on the wrong side of the bed when you have this beautiful view at your feet — literally! Take in the fresh morning air after you open these two beautiful doors leading you to your own private balcony!
Drink in this view before you pour yourself a cup of joe!
Can we talk about this rustic bathtub?!
You wouldn’t be experiencing that country living unless you were afraid of a little mud… mud mask that is! Now what book to read… ?
Let’s go outside — barbecue or potluck anyone?!
If so, there’s plenty of space for a buffet in the ‘outside kitchen’ with massive counter space and seating area!
Or if you’d like to bring out a long picnic table, there’s more than 12,000 sq. ft. here in the back for it in this gutted and rebuilt space!
Now don’t forget: marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate! It’s all about survival in the woods.
Throw in a coin and make a wish!
Car lovers rejoice! Feel free to bring in your five vehicles here — don’t worry, there’s plenty of room for your other four sets of wheels in the auto court outside.
Address: 925 Durham Avenue SW, Calgary.
Neighbourhood: From Durham Avenue to Sydenham Road.
Listing Price: $7,500,000
Elevator Pitch: This beautiful estate is an escape to the country, but you don’t have to feel isolated when you’re heading home because it’s still close to the city! The private settings with wooden features and fireplaces allow you to feel cozy, but there’s enough space for when you want to let loose with a large backyard and pool.
Highlight: You always start your day off on the right foot after waking up with a cup of coffee on your own patio at the foot of your bed in the master bedroom with it’s country-lodge feel to get you ready for the day.
Potential turn off: This house has all the space you need — but some rooms are a bit redundant because there’s four living spaces (not including outside) that offer the same convenience for entertaining, when you could’ve used two of them for a bigger gym instead of only a yoga room or a media room with a home theatre. Also, lets be realistic, all those rooms, there’s gonna be a lot of dust.
- 5 bedrooms
- 6 bathrooms
- Country escape that’s still close to the city, close to schools, 5-car garage + auto court, outside kitchen and bar, private balcony for the master bedroom.
- Built in 1960
In need of a chill space to host?
Pool party all year round — Day….
From one pool — to the other!
Don’t let the cold Calgary weather let you miss your yoga class.
Why go to the office when you can just work from home all day?
Your family or guests can count sheep here:
Bean bag chairs? A must for the kids room… or the adults.
If you’re hosting a family, they’ll feel at home in your ‘second’ living space.
