About Leon Keeping

I am a local artist. I grew up in the mining town of Fort McMurray, Alberta. Wanting to pursue art full-time my fiancée and I moved our family into this beautiful community in 2008. With the many parks, nature areas and access to the mountains it is an artist's delight, and an amazing place to raise our family, with never-ending inspiration for my art.

Leon Keeping purchased this house in 2008

Add to that the sophisticated high-tech home theater with 120 inch screen, seating for nine, surround sound and its own concession with popcorn maker, makes it a renter's paradise.

What makes this house unique

Being an avid cook. The kitchen is my favorite room, but the artist in me appreciates the home theater.

A lovely home with exceptional attention to detail. Very clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The home was impeccably clean & tidy. Well equipped with everything we needed for the weekend. Many pillows, comforters, foam mattresses, comfy beds. Everything you'd have in your own home & more! The owner communicated well with us and was very focused on the details of our expectations. We would definitely stay in this lovely home again and recommend it to family & friends.

Awesome villa, incredible hospitality - wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had two families stay together during a tournament in Lethbridge. Everyone had their own bedrooms (4) and washrooms. Great space and wonderful Theatre (great for afternoon naps as well). Incredible kitchen and barbeque. Owners very responsive and hospitable. Recommend this to anyone that requires great space!

We came for our grandmother’s funeral. This warm home provided us with a soft place to land. So many stories and memories shared around the dining table over a bottle of wine. The theatre was great for comedic relief. We would definitely come again!

Owers Statement: I love living in Lethbridge and enjoy helping other people see the beauty of the Southern Alberta area. With near immediate access to the many parks and wilderness areas, one can really see the time put into the infrastructure of the city and surrounding area.

Lethbridge's most magnificent characteristic is it's coulees - a network of large rolling hills that were formed a by Glacial spillwater over 10,000 years ago. The old man river winds under the world's largest Trestle Bridge. spectacular view went tubing or kayaking.

With its dedication to the Arts Lethbridge has been named the cultural capital of Canada. It has the feel of a small town with all the amenities and services of a large city. With its sunny climate and its proximity to the mountains and US border it truly is the Jewel of Alberta.

Neighborhood attributes:

Built in Uplands in 2002 it is located in an upscale neighbourhood.

The home location is a five minute walk to all amenities including Chinook Lake, Sobey's market, and gas station. Adjacent stripmall includes barbershop, liquor store, Original Joe's Pub and Eatery.

A short 10 minute walk will get you to a super Walmart and strip malls with more amenities including a boutique, clothing stores, Dollar Store, drugstore, Tim Hortons, Subway and McDonald's.

A five minute drive will bring you to Pavan park or Peenaquin Park to view wildlife, enjoy a picnic lunch, or explore the wilderness trails along the scenic old man river. It truly is the photographers paradise!
