This spacious 5-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom home in Signal Hill backs onto Batallion Park with large bay windows, outdoor pool, attached front triple car garage, and walkout basement creates the ultimate family home! Boasting over 4,200 square feet of living space, this home is an excellent option for families wanting endless space and looking to live away from the hustle of Downtown, with close proximity to parks, schools, amenities, and the mountains.
Through the front door, the main entry impresses with 2-storey tall ceilings and curved wood-spindle staircase with chandelier for a grand entrance. The home is also accessible through the attached triple car garage for everyday use and enters into a large mudroom/laundry area with tiled floors and a side-by-side front loading washer and dryer.
The bright, open kitchen features lots of white flat panel cabinetry that sits alongside a white tile backsplash. The oversized central island features breakfast bar seating and lots of additional storage. There’s also a built-in pantry, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances including a gas cooktop, and (arguably the best part) a huge window over the sink to take in the fantastic views. A breakfast nook sits next to the kitchen in front of large bow windows and a glass door that takes you out to the elevated, oversized back deck. An elegant and impressive dedicated dining room features a timeless chandelier and lots of windows for lots of light for sit-down dinners.
The family living room centers on a gas fireplace with tile surround and extensive wood panelling and millwork. It is open to the kitchen and dining area with a vast window bringing in tons of natural light.
A front den is a wonderful office location away from the main living spaces, next to the front door, with a frosted glass privacy door. Rounding out the main floor is a 2-piece powder room.
An elegant, curved staircase with a wood-spindle railing brings you to the upper level, with space on the upper landing for a sitting area. The primary suite has two South-facing windows with excellent views, a massive walk-in closet with lots of built-in shelving, and a vast private ensuite with tiled floors, a soaker tub that sits under a bay window, a stand-up shower, dual sinks in a large vanity with tons of storage, and a separate make-up area with mirror, lighting, storage, and more windows for natural light while you’re getting ready! Both the second and third bedrooms are great sizes and have built-in closets. They share use of the main 4-piece bath with extended vanity, tiled flooring, and tub/shower combo, and there’s extra linen storage in the hallway.
Downstairs, the fully developed walkout basement is perfect for active families! You can use the large rec room for anything your family desires with an expansive bay window overlooking the backyard, a wet bar with sink and storage, an entertainment area with a natural gas fireplace with a stone surround, and even more large windows. There are also two more bedrooms (or perhaps they are another office and a home gym? Or a library and a kid’s playroom?), and there’s a full 4-piece bathroom with a stand-up shower, large vanity, and built-in linen storage.
The walkout basement brings you out to the rare and desirable backyard, where you’ll find a $100,000 swimming pool! The pool comes fully stocked with a salt system, a $10,000 dome for year-round use, and a pool deck with recycled rubber on top of concrete and outdoor carpet. This is the backyard of every kid’s dream!
Other home highlights include a central vacuum system, water softener, central A/C, 2x high-efficiency furnaces, a $4,000 radon mitigation system, new carpets (2013), and a new steam humidifier.
Signal Hill is home to several neighbourhood schools, lots of spacious parks, and the Signal Hill and Westhills Centres for all the shopping and amenities you could want! Getting away to the mountains is extremely easy with Glenmore/Stoney Trail bordering the community to the South, and access to the rest of Calgary is convenient along Sarcee Trail, Richmond Road, or Glenmore Trail East.
