Tasteful and classy are two words which come to mind when you drive up to this elegant estate home. Nothing has been left untouched from the foundation up, inside and out on this completely renovated Bel-Aire property. This home has been fully brought up to 2014 building codes in every way and once you see it there is no mistaking that despite the age showing on record this is a newly built home.
The grand entrance draws you in to a modern but traditional design. Custom archways frame the dining area. The living area captures the sunlight from the back exposure and is anchored by a gorgeous Turkish marble fireplace with Valour insert. Oak hardwood flooring with inlaid accents add depth with the light colored walls and plentiful natural light. The kitchen is a cooks dream space. Gorgeous quality custom two tone cabinetry and countertops including leathered rainbow granite on the island. Wolf six burner cooktop, wall oven, steam oven, and hood fan are top of the line. A Subzero fridge and Miele dishwasher compete the package. A separate built in area of the sunny breakfast nook is ideal for a coffee bar and a large walk-in pantry ensures ample storage space. The spacious main floor laundry area has everything you are looking for. A double attached garage is heated with epoxy flooring, built-ins, and a side drive garage opener.
Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms including a potential two room master suite anchoring the center ensuite with all the features you would expect in a home of this quality. Two additional bedrooms and a shared bath complete this level which has the same oak hardwood running throughout. The new four window, solid exterior sealed skylight over the stairs is an engineering marvel and floods the upper level with light. The other crown jewel in the upper level is the covered and screened porch room off the back bedroom. Enjoying a south exposure to the back yard and amber tinted roof it is useable for a good part of the year and is a great place to relax after a long day.
There is more family living space in the basement. The TV screening area has another gas fireplace surrounded by fossilized stone from Texas and double sided kitchen/bar area. The other side is a large flex space set up as a gym and craft areas. There is a full bathroom and still plenty of storage. The mechanical room is neat as a pin. Three zone furnace and air conditioning, Kinetico water softener and steam humidifier.
The large 906 sq.m lot the property is situated on lends itself to a huge backyard which has been thoughtfully designed with outdoor living in mind. Stamped concrete patio covers the complete back expanse of the home and wraps to the sides and front with both partially covered and open living areas. Two built in concrete flower beds are the perfect anchors and accent lighting adds the twilight touch. All the concrete work has been over engineered to function and last with the help of a concrete expert. There are nearly mature 60 trees and bushes placed with a purpose throughout the property.
Bel-Aire is one of the premiere neighborhoods in Calgary. This home is a mere 15 homes away from the Glenmore Reservoir pathways and is in as quiet of a neighborhood as you'll find. Minutes to downtown and easy access in all directions via the adjacent Glenmore Trail, it works well no matter where you need to go.
