Welcome to Elbow Valley. This neighborhood, just west of the city was developed and built with the intention of keeping you close to nature while ensuring that the conveniences of the city are within easy access.
In the Elbow Valley area, there are lakes for swimming and for kayaking. Kayaks and paddleboards are available to residents at no cost. There's a golf course. There are lots of trails for cycling and hiking or walking your pet. Could snap on the snowshoes or cross-country skis in the winter time.
Fill the birdfeeder, and you'll be mesmerized by the many species that you'll see coming for lunch!
There's other wildlife too. The property backs onto the forest. There's more than just birds around, so you won't want to let your pets run loose. There are coyotes around. There's also deer, owls, and lots of other nature.
Just a couple of minutes to Elbow River, too, for some great fishing! And you are on the right side of the city if you like to frequent Banff and Bragg Creek.
With the development of the Ring Road, the commute to Calgary will get even easier. Signal Hill is minutes away. It really isn't much different than living anywhere else in Calgary, except you're in the middle of such great natural beauty.
That's the community. The house is every bit as spectacular. The kitchen has granite counter tops, a convection oven, dishwasher, sunken sinks, a large SubZero fridge, pull out the freezer, built in microwave, and a SodaStream water spritzer. I don't think you'll ever run out of cabinet space. This property can be rented furnished or unfurnished - your choice.
On one side of the kitchen is a very lovely dining room. On the other side of the kitchen is a bright and cheerful kitchen nook that opens on to the large deck. The kitchen also connects to the living room, where you'll love spending time snuggling in front of the gas fireplace. There are shelf speakers that connect to a built-in music system throughout the house. Music is controlled either by infrared remotes on the walls or by a Bluetooth connection on your phone.
There is a 1/2 guest bathroom on the main floor, and a laundry. The south facing master bedroom is also on the main floor. Luxuriate on the 4 post king sized bed as you watch AppleTV on the 42-inch tv connected to a Kenwood sound system. You'll never want to get out of bed! Of course, there is an ensuite. The ensuite has a jacuzzi and a walk-in shower, as well as his 'n' her sinks. A skylight in the bathroom ceiling lets lots of natural light if you're putting on makeup while the sun is up.
On the main floor, you'll also find a large den with a substantial desk. If you have a job where you can work from home, this will suit you perfectly.
There's another bedroom downstairs. It also faces south. In this bedroom, you'll find a spacious queen sized bed. As well, there's another living room downstairs. This room also has a gas fireplace, a 50" tv with Bose 5.1 home theatre and a sectional couch to relax on.
For cleaning, you'll use the Vacuflow built-in vacuum cleaning system. The machine is located in the garage. There are 2 hoses, one for inside the house, and one in the garage for cleaning the garage and your cars.
You will LOVE the deck. It's got great furniture, and a 10-foot Calcana infra-red heater means you'll be able to enjoy the deck longer than your neighbors! From the deck, you will get to observe wildlife, as the forest is just a few feet away.
