11370 VALLEY RIDGE PARK NW
VALLEY RIDGE, CALGARY, AB
EVERGREEN ON THE BOW
A stunning timber frame home of daring design that blends inspiration from Canmore and West Coast architecture. The arts & crafts style matches the presence of the land surrounded by mature forests and edged by the Bow River and the Valley Ridge golf course. The park-like setting provides a private sanctuary with the conveniences of the city. Crafted from natural Canadian elements including the timber frame and grizzly rock limestone sourced from British Columbia.
The interior boasts an evolving natural palette of finishes and textures to compliment the timber frame structure. The beautiful hardwood has recently been refinished. Every detail was carefully crafted including windows with an anodized bronze finish that changes colour based on the direction of sunlight and Kobe truss design with straight and curved timbers joined by a timber pendant in the great room. The open kitchen, with new ovens and dishwashers, offers dual tone, raised panel, knotty alder cabinetry, and light granite complimenting the limestone backsplash with inlaid tile design. A beautiful crossbeam ceiling continues the timber décor above quaintly rustic features that include a farmer’s sink and a blackened steel custom hood fan with hammered inlay.
Ascend the maple staircase with vertical grain fir newel posts and wrought iron detailing to the loft-style office anchored around the stately wood-burning fireplace. French doors lead to the library with views of the evergreens and an attached bath. The master suite features a sun-filled sitting area, enormous dressing room, and lavish 6 piece ensuite bath. Perfect for entertaining, the lower level walks out to the patio and offers two additional bedrooms as well a sprawling recreational area with a games room, media room, and bar. The .9 acre property is completed with several outdoor patios to enjoy the great outdoors, a gazebo, a double attached, and a triple detached garage.
