About our home

Our home is a half duplex in a nice neighborhood with mountain views. We are located walking distance to the Bow river, lots of places to walk to from here. We are 10 mins to Calgary and 20 mins to the mountains. Very close to Kananaskis Country, Canmore, Banff and Lake Louise. Our home is not fancy or full of expensive furniture and things. We are modest, clean and our home is full of love. We have three children in the home and our two cats so we have a comfortable, lived in home. It is 1400sq ft with an unfinished basement. The basement houses our teenaged daughter but it is not finished... she has her own space down there with a tv and computer and couch. So our home sleeps 6 in bedrooms and 8 if you don't mind the basement surroundings. Our home is also located beside the railway tracks. Our back yard faces them and it can be a little loud in the summer with the back upstairs windows open but other than that it does not disturb us at all. It is quite comforting to us to hear the trains. Our home is also fully furnished and we have a bbq on the back patio, a tv/dvd in master bedroom, and bunkbeds in one of the kids rooms. Our neighborhood is pretty quiet and our neighbors are really quiet. We love where we live!

As mentioned, our neighborhood is mostly quiet... there are some young families about and some kids but not loud late night people. There are also two new suburbs being built around us but far enough away that we don't hear much from the construction. We like it here because there are many places to walk to including the Bow river, walk to restaurants and downtown Cochrane. We have the famous McKays ice cream and some very nice shops with unique collectibles and treasures.

We are a newly married couple and we have 6 children between us but only three at home. We love movies and lots of indoor stuff like games and cards and crafts. We also love the outdoors such as camping, hiking, canoeing, and just being somewhere new. We often go to Banff to do many different things there but one of our favorites is to go to the hot springs after a nice hike. Lots of neat places for picnics also. We love music and there are lots of different festivals and events during the year to experience many different levels of cultural music. They range from the native pow wows to the local churches and the local folk club hosting many different artists throughout the year. Our interests are as diverse as our town and culture in which we live.
