              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              About the owner: I arrived in Calgary 12 years ago and had dreamed of owning a luxury resort style log home in the mountains. I searched all the typical areas to find a suitable location, Bragg Creek, Canmore and Kananaskis Country, but found these areas very congested. What i really wanted was total privacy, complete silence and panoramic views. I couldn't fine such a place and ultimately paid a deposit on a double block in Canmore, but i couldn't get comfortable with the decision that i had made. Fortunately a friend told me of an acreage that had a partially built log home that bordered the Rocky Mountain Forestry Reserve NW of Cochrane. As soon as i saw the property i fell in love with the possibilities and promptly cancelled the Canmore contract. I spent a year finishing the home and included lots of exceptional features so that i could totally indulge myself as well as entertain corporate clients, friends and family.

              Why the Owner Chose Canmore:
              You can enjoy day outings to a number of world class destinations in the surrounding areas and then escape to a place of great beauty, peace and total silence where you can escape the congestion of the tourist destinations.

              The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
              The full size Gym, Hill top observatory, 10 ft theater screen, multi zone sound system, 8 person shower with inside stereo, outside fire pits and 2 jacuzzi's are enough to keep everyone happy and occupied. The property is also ideal as an executive retreat, honeymoons and family reunions.
