Welcome to 260 Artists View Way, a beautifully renovated home located on the most desirable street in Artists View West. This private home has a full two acres with both naturally treed landscape and a grassed/treed area fenced with wrought iron.. perfect for pets and children! This is a bright, sunny lot with a south west facing back yard and a great driving pad that allows for extra parking. Right at the entrance you’ll see a double detached garage, great for those extra cars, but I think it would also convert nicely into a fantastic private and quiet office or art studio!
Up the driveway you’ll see a double detached garage and a first glimpse of this lovely family home. The exterior is clad in warm painted wood and formal brick siding. The cheerful front door is painted red and is located conveniently out of the elements on the large front porch.
Upon entering this home, you’ll see that every effort has been made to open up the floor plan to allow light to flow through. You can take a closer look at the floor plan, it’s included with the photos. This home has been lovingly and professionally renovated with brand new hardwood throughout the main floor and floating hardwood staircase to the upper floor. Almost all windows have been replaced with Pella windows, including the featured automated skylights above that allow sunlight to brighten the space!
The fresh, brand new white kitchen is a gourmet chef’s dream with contemporary cabinets, stainless steel appliances and granite counters. You’ll notice the skylights run up above the kitchen allowing for better lighting when preparing meals. A very convenient wine fridge is located there as well. There are double walls ovens and a convection oven microwave to make baking and roasting a breeze. The stove is an induction top range, making clean up easy. You’ll find plenty of storage, always important for those who love to entertain and have extra serving dishes and linens to tuck away.
Family and guests can eat right up at the bar while you are cooking and formal sit down dinners take place right at the heart of the home under a stunning, impressive light fixture. The large family room is nearby, a great place to sit and socialize in front of an over-sized, stately wood burning fireplace (with gas starter) on cooler fall and winter evenings. Looking for a more intimate, quiet spot to visit, there is a “morning room” on the other side of the fireplace. This is a cozy new area that was opened up during renovations. This is a great “flex” space and would also look pretty with a desk and function well as a homework area.
There is a wooden deck with stairs just off the family room as well for entertaining. Lots of windows let you look out into the sunny wooded back yard. At one time a view of the mountains could be seen.. you could thin out the trees if you wanted to get that view back again!
Down the hallway you’ll find a beautiful renovated two piece powder room for company.. a little further and you’ll find the Master Bedroom and Ensuite. This is what I love about this home.. it can function virtually as a bungalow for retired/semi-retired couples with the main living spaces on the main floor and with the secondary bedrooms up a short flight of stairs. The Master Retreat is oversized and has a second gas fireplace that is such a romantic view for a bedroom. The feature wood ceiling was kept intact, it is a beautiful addition to the room. The ensuite has double vessel sinks, new Kohler taps and tons of cupboard space. There is a beautiful new soaker tub with a private view to the lovely yard.. perfect for soaking in at the end of a day! They’ve installed an over-sized glass shower with body jets and the much favored rain-shower tap.
Up a few stairs is a sweet “girl’s” room that is two rooms that were opened into one. These could be closed to make a third bedroom if needed. Currently is has a sleeping chamber and a lounging room, wonderful for when one has friends over to visit. The second bedroom has a fun upper deck, a great space for young children to play and awesome for sleep-overs! Up a few steps you’ll find a bathroom with one sink, then right next to it a separate room with shower/tub and sink. This makes it easier for those busy mornings when everyone is rushing to get ready for school!
Down to the lower level, there is a fourth bedroom for guests and a three piece bath. You’ll find a very spacious family room area with a third wood burning fireplace with gas starter. There would be room for a pool table if you desired. There is also a wet bar with plenty of space for wine and beverages. There is space for a dining or card table.
Best of all, the lower level is a walk-out level.. go through the patio doors you’ll find a brand new deck that is perfect for entertaining. There is a fire pit with a gas starter and tons of built in space for seating.. so you can relax outdoors and enjoy your beautiful acreage!
This family home is truly a dream home.. the layout will serve a family for years as, in time, the main living spaces are all on the main floor of the home. This community is a mere minutes drive before you arrive home to a sanctuary. The very popular Springbank School is a few minutes up the road and plenty of private schools are all in the area: Calgary French School, Webber, Rundle, and Calgary Academy.
Call or text me to take a look at why this neighborhood was named “Artists View” and why this home could be your next one.. this is truly the kind of home where family memories are made!
