    Welcome to a unique architecturally designed private residence that is set high on a mountain near the end of a quiet cul de sac overlooking the town of Canmore, Alberta. The home was completed in 2008 and will appeal to people with an interest in modern design with an alpine flair.

The home features spectacular mountain views from every angle. This 5800+ square foot home boasts 4 bedrooms, all with hand-laid glass mosaic tiled ensuite bathrooms. There is an additional powder room off the kitchen/dining area. The house is large enough for family reunions or corporate retreats, yet intimate in scale for smaller groups. The bedrooms are spread out in the house over 3 levels to provide the maximum amount of separation and privacy. Just a few of the unique touches include reclaimed maple flooring, imported Italian door hardware, heated ensuite floors, quarter-sawn white oak cabinetry, and an indoor rock climbing area. Main Level: The large foyer leads into the open concept kitchen/dining area with reclaimed maple hardwood flooring throughout.

    Kid friendly. Stunning views from almost every room in the house. Backyard and back deck with super comfy patio set wonderful for evening barbecues and relaxing. Outside trampoline a joy for the little ones. Great location. Walking distance to great trails and the river. Quarry Lake and beach only 10 minute drive. 5 minutes in car to downtown. 15 minute drive to Banff and the world renowned National Parks - skiing, skating, great hiking, canoeing, sightseeing, mountain and road biking and walks by the river. It's a real treat to be in Canmore for some R & R - no matter what season you come there's lots to do inside and out. We're a 2 minute walk from the Cougar Creek hike, a 20 minute slow walk to town and we hook onto a newly paved bike trail that takes you all over. Enjoy!

What to do in Lake Louise and Around
With its blue-green water and dramatic mountain setting, this is the best known and most admired lake in the park. Lake Louise Drive, a paved 4.5 km road, and two trails, the Tramline and Louise Creek, provide access between Lake Louise Village on the valley floor and the lake itself. Pathways lead from the public parking lot to the lake. The magnificent snow-covered peak at the end of the lake is Mount Victoria, named for England’s renowned queen. The lake is named for after one of her five daughters. A stroll through the flower-filled grounds in front of the Chateau Lake Louise is a nice way to spend a half hour. Canoes can be rented from the boathouse at the lake or you can see the lake on foot by walking the Lakeshore Trail. At the Lake Louise ski area, on the opposite side of the valley, visitors can take a chairlift up Whitehorn Mountain in the summertime for panoramic views of Lake Louise and its surrounding peaks.
