This three-bedroom house north of Calgary differed from the standard two-storey subdivision offering because it had a larger main floor layout, providing plenty of room for family living. It also backs onto a golf course, affording open views.
“It’s not your typical two-storey home,” said agent Natalie Berthiaume, “so it appealed to somebody more on the creative side and looking for something a little different.”
What they got
This house is over 20 years old and has 1,728-square-feet of living space and an attached double garage. It has been extensively renovated in the last five years, with new siding, a south-facing deck and large new windows in the dining room and double height living room.
The front office, several bathrooms and the kitchen have been remodelled with the addition of a custom butler’s pantry. The basement was refinished with a guest room, recreation area, wet bar and walkout to the 45-foot-by 116-foot back yard.
The agent’s take
“Your standard two-storey home in newer subdivisions will have a higher upper level – square footage wise – and the main floor will be smaller because they’ve built above the garage,” said Ms. Berthiaume.
“But it’s much nicer to have a larger main floor and that translates into a larger basement space as well, and that was the case here.”
Minor improvements also made big impacts. “It’s not every day people put the money into creating larger windows, but it did open up the space and bring light through, which was quite key,” Ms. Berthiaume said.
“This backs onto the golf course, so it’s a nice location with pretty views, and it’s nice and private.”
