The buzz is just 10 mins away in popular Kensington - funky & festive! Take the kids for an island picnic, or to the Calgary zoo..enjoy music & food festivals every summer weekend..and Shakespeare in the park just 10 mins walk away.. and of course in July there is the Great Calgary Stampede! The fabulous Rocky Mountains are just 50 min drive.. but you can see them from the city..snow caps beckoning you to come & explore. Ski & snowboard, hike & rock climb & golfing almost everywhere.. a recreation playground!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1981

About the owner: Hi..I love art & I love to travel.. this photo is in London outside the Royal Academy. I am originally from Australia but have lived in Calgary for 40 years on & off - travel in between! My kids have grown & flown but both were brought up in the house. I love the garden & the atmosphere of my home.. it has a charm all its own!

Why the Owner Chose Northwest Calgary, Calgary, AB, Canada:
To stay in this house is to feel at home. You are central to all Calgary has to offer but also just 50 min drive from the mountain playground of the Rockies. Walk, bike, enjoy the local sights and sounds.. though you are inner city you can still hear the birds!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Your suite is cute & cosy and has all you need for your stay. Extended stay guests can enjoy the garden, back deck and BBQ. Don't hassle with Calgary driving & parking.. being so close to everything you can walk everywhere or jump on the C train for those venues a bit further afield.
