About our home

Come enjoy the full Canadian Rocky Mountain experience.

This video pretty much captures the "Why would I want to come to Calgary" question: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThFCg0tBDck

Our home in Calgary:
We designed our primary residence in Calgary and it was completed in 2010. (We enjoy a more European and modern feel than most houses built in Calgary.) The 3500 square foot home is built on 3 levels (not including the finished basement, with gym) and the master bedroom takes up the entire top story of the home. It has an expansive bathroom and closet and its own 200 square foot terrace. The design is extremely minimal- you won't find any clutter here!
It was important for us to live close to downtown and so we chose a neighbourhood close to Kensington which has some of the best pedestrian living, restaurants, cafes and boutique shopping in the City.
The Cabin:
Our cabin located on a ski hill 3 hours from our home is a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom true cabin, with cedar lined walls and vaulted ceilings. It houses 2 bedrooms up and includes a "bunk room" for the kids in the basement.
It is a magical place to spend Christmas or a great summer getaway. The resort (Panorama Mountain Resort) also enjoys one of the Country's best golf courses in the summer)
Its a rustic place that invites you to put your feet up by the fire.
We are happy to include both as part of the swap. It really will give you the full Calgary/Rocky Mountain experience.
We are looking for adventure, so we're open to any swap suggestions!
