Located on the north side of the Bow River this lovely lush urban community has old charm and character and is located just minutes from the zoo, the peace bridge, downtown, schools and the renowned social area called Kensington. Just footsteps from your deck is excellent dining, movies, shopping and sightseeing.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Homeowners are long time Calgarians and proud Sunnyside residents who live next door to this rental property. We waited 20 years to purchase this home and turn it into the charming rental cottage we knew it could be. The transformation of this home has been very rewarding and we look forward to sharing this lovely home and our neighborhood with people from all over the world. We love to travel as well and have tried to make this a place we would love to rent when visiting another city. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Calgary:
This property is on the same block as our home and needed some loving. We have lived here for 20 years and think this is the best neighborhood in Calgary. This property is fully upgraded without loosing its old charm which was our goal.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location, location, location!!!!! And of course unbelievable charm....
