Property description

With a steady stream of 5 star ratings Wavehill continues to provide a true sanctuary for those seeking a very high-end vacation experience. Much more than a spectacular 3 bedroom log and stone home, Wavehill is more like a mini resort that was built with total Hedonism in mind.

Over the years Wavehill has been the backdrop to numerous photo shoots, guests include famous models, artists, musicians, movie stars and iconic business leaders. Immersed in nature and all its glory on a daily basis.
This magnificent hillside property of over 80 acres is bordered on all sides by crown land and the Rocky Mountain Forestry Reserve. Wavehill offers stunning, uninterrupted views across the adjacent valley to the Rocky Mountains, providing the ultimate in privacy and seclusion, yet is less than an hour scenic drive to downtown Banff or Calgary.

Other features include a theater, outside jacuzzi, huge 8 person shower with stereo, pool table, full size-gym and hilltop observatory with 240 degree panoramic views.

This is a destination where you instantly decompress and escape. Because of the homes exceptional hilltop positioning you are literally siting in a vortex of natural energy. It is a home of tranquility and serenity that every visitor to Wavehill comments on when they arrive and remember long after they leave.

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, wifi, 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.
