Uniquely designed and absolutely beautiful, this stunning home sits on an idyllic 19.45 acres of magnificently forested land in popular Bearspaw. Timber frame and wood details throughout this character home and woodland vistas from every window create a tranquil atmosphere of rustic elegance. Soaring cedar ceilings in the living area host floor to ceiling windows and a wood fireplace with a statement full-height surround. This area steps out to a gorgeous wraparound deck that enjoys the quiet, treed surroundings. In the kitchen, charming vintage cabinetry is plentiful, including two pantry cupboards, and wood countertops enhance the farmhouse aesthetic. The spacious dining area is ready for big family dinners and offers more serene forest views. A main floor master wing has newer carpet and a makeup vanity (or desk) set into a cute bay window, as well as a secluded sitting room with direct access to the deck, perfect for enjoying your morning coffee in a peaceful wooded glade. The floor-to-ceiling windows open so you can get a nice breeze flowing on warm days, and there are five closets in this room! An amazing six-piece jack and jill ensuite is complete with an oversized jetted tub and a separate tiled shower, and you will also find the laundry room here. The attached double garage has tons of extra storage space, and there is also a big mudroom off the kitchen. The upper floor features a big loft overlooking the living room, perfect for a bonus room or home office space, and there are two more large bedrooms and a full bathroom here as well. In the basement, the finished area includes two more bedrooms for a total of five, a den, a third bathroom, and of course utility and storage space. The unfinished portion is a massive utility and storage area as well. This property is utterly exquisite, with a tree-lined driveway and lush forest glades in every direction. The house is in a clearing away from the road, where the lawn is dotted with fruit trees and over a kilometre of walking, skiing, or riding paths wind through the scenic 20-acre grounds, which have a mix of evergreen and poplar groves and wildflower filled meadows. The property is fenced and has housed horses in the past, and wildlife visitors pass through regularly. An outdoor firepit invites large gatherings, and proximity to Calgary and Cochrane means everyone can easily get out for a visit; Highway 1A is just seconds away. There is a woodshop on the property and the septic system was done in 2016. The amenities of Bearspaw are accessible within minutes, as are the shops of Tuscany and Rocky Ridge. It’s rare to find a property this size so close to the city; this is a truly amazing opportunity. Book your showing today!
