Wow! Prepare to be impressed by this substantially upgraded family home in Signal Hill, with an enormous West-facing backyard oasis! Located on a large, quiet corner lot siding directly onto a community park and playground, this home also offers direct access to the community pathway winding through the neighbourhood. Custom built by the original owners, this pet and smoke-free property, is not only captivating outside but also luxuriously upgraded inside – showcasing over 2,900 total square feet of upgraded living space with exceptional attention to detail across all three levels.
Step inside and be greeted by the bright and welcoming foyer with an elegant chandelier, soaring 18’ ceilings open-to-above, and refinished hardwood floors. Leading into the front living room, you’ll be spoiled by (new!) oversized windows flooding the space with natural ample light and outfitted with motorized Hunter Douglas blinds controlled by a remote or smartphone app for added convenience and newly installed plush carpet.
Walking through a gorgeous archway adorned by columns is the formal dining room with enough room to fit a full dining set. Enjoy mealtime and family gatherings while overlooking the picturesque, terraced pie lot.
Perfect for all your culinary adventures, the bright kitchen is a chef's dream equipped with upgraded stainless-steel appliances, including a new smart 4-door Samsung fridge, a brand-new Jenn-Air cooktop, a built-in KitchenAid wall oven and microwave, and a convenient beverage fridge. The kitchen also features beautiful black leathered etna granite countertops, ample cupboard space, and a unique feature: a fully tiled corner pantry, adding more than a touch of sophistication!
Just off the kitchen resides a computer desk/nook complete with both drawers and upper cabinets, perfect for working remotely or for the kids’ homework after school. The sun-drenched dining nook with a delightful view of the large backyard is the ideal spot for weekend brunches and casual meals.
Adjacent to the kitchen is the cozy family room featuring a real wood-burning fireplace, creating a warm and comfortable retreat after a long day. Open niches from the kitchen area allow for fluid interaction between occupants in each room while still allowing for a separation of the space while preparing meals.
Located on the main floor, the generously sized laundry room is tucked away from the main living spaces, featuring timelessly elegant and functional tiled walls and floors, a side-by-side washer/dryer, a single basin sink, and upper cabinetry. An elegant upgraded 2pc powder room has an extended vanity with storage and perfectly completes the main floor.
With a total of FOUR bedrooms upstairs (a rare find!), the bright second level features a combination of plush carpet and hardwood floors! While the three spare bedrooms are all generously sized and can easily accommodate a growing family, it is the primary suite which really shines.
Overlooking the picturesque backyard and park/playground beyond, the stately primary bedroom features a whole wall of built-in closet storage with pull-out drawers plus a secondary walk-in closet area. Luxurious heated tile flooring runs through the bedroom area and right into the spa-like 5-piece ensuite bathroom featuring an oversized vanity with dual vessel sinks on a granite countertop, a free-standing clawfoot soaker tub surrounded by corner windows, and a fully enclosed glass and tile stand-up shower featuring body jets. A private balcony overlooks the beautiful West-facing backyard and is the perfect spot for a morning coffee.
Three additional bedrooms upstairs each offer unique features and ample space for a growing family. Don’t be fooled by the photos of the fourth bedroom – although this room has been used as a dressing room for years, with plentiful built-in cabinetry on both sides, it can easily be converted back into a bedroom and offers plenty of space to do so!
Uniquely upgraded is the main 5-piece bathroom with heated mini hexagon tiled flooring, a granite vanity with storage, a tub/shower combo with body spray jets surrounded by ceiling-height tile, and a unique touch - a urinal with a wall-mounted TV above! Never again miss a second of the big game on a bathroom break!
Thoughtful upgrades and plentiful renovations continue into the fully developed basement featuring reclaimed barn wood feature walls from an 1895-built homestead in Three Hills and loads of room for entertaining. Centred around a built-in gas fireplace and with plush carpeting, the large rec room boasts high ceilings, a barnyard wood feature wall, a gas fireplace, and plush carpeting.
The open rec room also offers a flex space with built-in drawers, bookcases, a designated reading area, plus a games space perfect for a pool or oversized cards table. A spacious 5th bedroom offers a walk-in closet plus cheater access to the full 4-piece bathroom boasting an extended granite vanity with dual sinks and storage, heated tiled flooring, and a fully tiled stand-up steam shower with a bench and glass door. The basement also features a cleverly designed under-stair storage area, plus extra storage in the mechanical room.
A standout feature of this home is the enormous, picturesque backyard. Truly this outdoor oasis must be seen to be appreciated! A large deck overlooks the green space beyond, with a hot tub sitting in a nice private area, perfect for those evening dips. A covered BBQ area offers the perfect space for grilling, while a huge lower patio area offers plenty of space to lounge with friends and family. The pie-shaped lot also allows for a huge terraced green space with lots of mature trees for great privacy year-round. Watch the kids and their friends at the park adjacent to this property, while enjoying an afternoon BBQ or cold beverage of choice on a daily basis!
Ideal for the handyman, car aficionado, or anyone who loves a nice garage, the oversized attached 23’4” x 19’ 3” double garage comes fully insulated, drywalled, and heated and features vinyl composition tile (VCT) flooring and wall-mounted Husky storage cabinets to keep things organized! You can also enjoy convenient access to the insulated, drywalled and finished side shed directly inside the garage or from the yard – how thoughtful.
Additional upgrades and features of this home include two brand new hot water tanks, a newer furnace, newer plush carpet, a 10-year-old asphalt roof, all new windows with upgraded Hunter Douglas window coverings, and updated casings and baseboards. The exposed aggregate front driveway, front patio, and stairs are perfect for a discerning buyer.
With its neighbourhood schools, city & mountain views, plenty of spacious parks, including Battalion Park, and proximity to shopping and recreation, there is no doubt why Signal Hill is one of Calgary’s most desirable SW communities. The West LRT is moments away, so commuting downtown from Signal Hill has never been more accessible. Plus, getting away to the mountains is extremely easy via the 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. Plus, this home is surrounded by amazing neighbours!
