A rare opportunity to acquire one of the largest and most majestic properties on the west side of Calgary. Original, classic design meets the best of modern amenities and offers in excess of 9,800 square feet of total living space, perfect for those who love to entertain on a grand scale. Impressive, private grounds surround the house offering almost 63,000 square feet of land (1.4 acres) with an oversized triple garage (the original carriage house), a circular drive and full width veranda with Italian terra cotta embellishments. Moved from Winnipeg, brick by brick, the home was completely rebuilt in 1979 and extensively updated, yet retains all of the character and charm of a turn of the century mansion. The renowned architect was L.S. Buffington who pioneered the use of the steel skeleton method of construction for high-rise buildings, and, in fact, there is an extensive amount of steel in this property. It offers all the conveniences of modern living that we all love so much including an elevator offering access to all levels, a renovated spa-like ensuite bathroom and an exquisite, renovated chef’s kitchen with heated tile flooring, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, a butler’s pantry and granite countertops. There are two stairways to the upper floors, the second level features five bedrooms, four fireplaces and access to a balcony. The large master suite was extensively renovated and features a walk-in closet with book-ended rosewood built-ins and an ensuite with steam shower, soaker tub and limestone pedestal vanity. Adjacent to this room is a dressing room (or bedroom) with large closet and ensuite bathroom with antique marble jetted shower. Both of these rooms have spectacular mountain views. There are three additional bedrooms, one with its own ensuite and the other two share a Jack and Jill ensuite.
