About the Property

Great location and charm in this 2 or 3 bedroom classic urban cottage

This newly renovated 1910 century home is located just minutes from the heart of downtown in one of the most charming and quiet areas of Calgary. Walk, ride or train to any of Calgary's attractions easily from this centrally located cottage. This house has two units.The upper unit has two well appointed luxurious bedrooms that can comfortably sleep 4 in queen beds. The bathroom is bright and clean. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, dishwasher, and fridge with ice maker for those happy hour drinks on the porch while watching the local commuters ride or walk home from work. Everything is new in this lovely home. The front courtyard is fairly private with a great porch with BBQ for entertaining or relaxing. Groceries, liquor, and baking are available from either local/organic shops or large chains only a block away. The bright living/dining area has large SMART TV, stereo, bar and dining for 6-8 people. There is a lower one bedroom suite (see property #562585) and a shared laundry room with state of the art laundry facilities.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

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 Northwest Calgary, Calgary, AB, Canada:
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....
