WILDWOOD - CALGARY
Nestled atop the environmental reserve ravine, this Douglas Fir timber frame home, built by Francois Letarte, is a private oasis on a 12,000+ sq. ft lot in Calgary’s inner city. The Canmore mountain-style architecture invites you inside to the open living space which is a sanctuary for family and friends. Reclaimed fir hardwood floors, a planted roof, paperstone and reclaimed glass countertops, and natural stone highlights are a few of the eco-friendly design choices throughout.
The Denca kitchen, with farm & prep sinks, high-end stainless steel appliances, and a convenient walk-through pantry, is open to the dining room for ease of entertaining. Both the dining and living room share a stone double-sided fireplace and both offer access to the deck to immerse yourself in nature and enjoy the views. The main floor master retreat allows for ultimate relaxation with French doors to an outdoor patio, and an ensuite with a deep soaker tub, separate glass and tile shower, double vanity, and large walk-in closet. Work from home in the main floor office and live an active lifestyle with a large mudroom with built-in lockers and storage.
Two spacious upstairs bedrooms (each with a window seat) share a bathroom and library study space.
The walkout lower level allows for a seamless indoor-outdoor living space with the family room, with cozy fireplace & wet bar, walking out to the sprawling patio. Completing the lower level is a rec room, flex/gym area, wine cellar, storage, laundry, bath, and two additional bedrooms. Commune in nature in the West backyard backing onto the ridge where you may witness deer, birds, and other wildlife. Your backyard is your private sanctuary while being less than 10 minutes away from downtown Calgary.
Additional features of this home include: spray foam and R40 insulation, 2 HE furnaces with heat exchangers, a boiler for in-floor heating in the walkout, mudroom, and garage, irrigation system, 220v rough-ins, natural gas lines to the deck, lower patio, and garage, wired for a potential solar panel on the garage roof, indirect hot water heating, booster pump for increased water pressure, and so much more!
