Custom built by one of Calgary’s finest builders, Mission Homes, this meticulously maintained estate home offers 4239 square feet of total living space designed by architect Al McDowell and interior designer Suzanne Hayden. Built with top-quality materials to truly stand the test of time, this home exudes both timeless beauty and quality craftsmanship.
Located on a large corner lot directly across from a community park and playground and nestled amongst mature trees and greenery, this home boasts phenomenal curb appeal. The wraparound porch will make you feel at home as you dream of cold iced tea on a warm summer day!
Inside, the grand entrance features a built-in bench, while large windows on all sides let Calgary’s gorgeous sunlight filter through all the main living spaces. Wainscoting, wall panelling, and custom built-ins/cabinetry throughout provide exceptional storage and organization solutions in a stylish yet functional way.
The main floor boasts soaring ceilings open-to-above, complemented by 8’ passage doors and solid hardwood floors. Relax in the front living room with direct access to the wraparound porch; a dream come true if you love indoor/outdoor living!

Open to the upgraded kitchen, the formal dining room features a gas fireplace with a brick surround and solid wood mantle, access to both the rear deck and wraparound porch, and solid wood crown moulding that spans into the hub of the house – the custom kitchen!
The jewel of the home—the kitchen—is a Denca custom kitchen with floor-to-ceiling cabinets with undercabinet lighting, solid cherry self-closing dovetail drawers, an oversized central island, granite countertops, and a sink overlooking the luscious backyard. The high-end appliance package includes a Thermador panelled refrigerator with a bottom freezer, a Miele induction cooktop, a built-in Wolf oven with a built-in hood fan, and a built-in microwave in the island.
Around the corner is a computer desk/nook with granite countertops, drawers, and an upper cabinet perfect for working remotely or for the kids’ homework after school. An elegant powder room is nearby with a built-in granite vanity, gorgeous wainscoting, a solid door, and a raindrop privacy window.
Say goodbye to clutter at the back door! The sunken mudroom at the rear of the home offers tile floors, a built-in bench, a mudroom sink with upper/lower cabinets, built-in coat hooks, and a sizeable coat closet with custom built-ins.
The stairwell features ceilings open to the second level, large windows, pendants, solid hardwood steps, and a solid wood railing, all designed not to require posts! Three rooms reside on the upper level, along with a 5pc main bathroom and a spacious laundry room.
The stately primary bedroom has unreal views of the park, vaulted ceilings, an oversized walk-in closet, and a generous spa-like 5pc ensuite bathroom. Overflowing with luxury, the ensuite showcases a deep soaker tub with wraparound windows and park views, a fully tiled oversized standup shower with a built-in bench and glass enclosure, and an oversized granite vanity with dual sinks, drawers, a built-in tower, and a built-in floor-to-ceiling side cabinet for ample storage.
An additional bedroom also features a grand vaulted ceiling, a large closet with built-ins, and cheater access to the main 5pc bathroom. The bathroom features an extended dual vanity, granite countertops, and a fully tiled tub/shower combo. A formal den down the hall has a lot of windows, a built-in wood desk, ceiling speakers, and a gas fireplace with a tile surround, a wood mantle, and built-in storage. This space could also be easily converted into a third bedroom! The formal laundry room has everything you need for convenient chores with tile flooring, a side-by-side washer/dryer, a laundry sink, a folding counter, and many storage cabinets.
The fully developed basement has a sizeable rec room with oversized windows providing natural light and multi-zone in-floor heat so you can set a different temp for every room based on your needs. And this is just the beginning! The basement also hosts an additional bedroom with multiple windows, a built-in cabinet/closet, and a walk-in closet with additional built-ins.
Your workout equipment has its own space in the dedicated gym area, which includes cork floors, a wall-mounted TV, a fully mirrored wall, ceiling speakers, and a built-in storage cabinet. This could also be converted into a fifth bedroom with ease! The full bathroom is a good size with in-floor heat, a built-in bench/lockers, an extended granite vanity with storage, and a fully tiled shower with a built-in bench and glass enclosure.
Storage is never an issue in this home, with three large storage areas! The main storage room has a wall of built-in cabinets, a sink area with upper/lower cabinet and undercabinet lighting, and a filing cabinet and fridge/freezer included. Two additional closed storage rooms include a custom-built golf storage room and a cold storage room.
The detached triple garage is fully insulated, drywalled, and heated with a workbench, hose bib, attic storage, and ceiling speakers – the ultimate guy’s dream!
