Visualize the perfect inner-city location. Now, open your eyes and fall in love with this pristine executive 2,469 sqft duplex in Parkdale’s exclusive Golden Triangle. Steps to the river and with only one neighbour, this home is surrounded by green space and set in one of the most picturesque areas in Calgary. A stylish curb appeal features mature landscaping, plentiful parking, and a covered front porch. Inside, a bright entry with big windows and vaulted ceilings steps up to a main floor where natural light and warm hardwood floors create an atmosphere of comfortable elegance. The family room has a bay window and top-down, bottom-up blinds, and the open layout flows through a dining nook with access to the deck. Kitchen was renovated in 2016, and offers tons of counter space, soft close cabinets, a spice cupboard, and a full pantry. The diner window connects this room to the formal dining area, which overlooks a sunlit living room with a cozy gas fireplace. The entire home has been impeccably maintained, with regular service for all appliances, and both interior and exterior upgrades over the years, including fresh paint throughout. Upstairs, a sumptuous primary suite is designed for couples, with dual closets and a spacious ensuite where a double vanity keeps you organized and a glassed-in shower has a skylight overhead. Both secondary bedrooms are spacious, with huge closets, and fans in most rooms allow you to control the airflow on warm days. In the basement, parquet floors are a charming character element in the rec area, which could easily function as home office space next to the library shelving, or put in your home theatre, or a gym. The laundry room includes a hobby area and built-in shelving. There are two furnaces with air conditioning and a central vacuum. The utility room features a broad work bench with additional storage areas. This level also holds the entrance from the double detached garage; a unique layout that is incredibly convenient. Outside, the tiered back deck provides over 350 sq. Ft. of outdoor living area, complete with privacy walls, storage, and a low maintenance garden and trees. Southwest views showcase the gorgeous Bow River Pathways and the amazing Calgary sunsets. Walk the dog, put a boat in the river, or hop on the bike to head downtown for work, all right at your doorstep. This property was not affected or evacuated in the 2013 floods, and is 97% likely to remain unaffected in future floods based on a government study. Locations like this don’t come along often. Also, within walking distance, you will find Riverside Towers, where a mix of shops and amenities includes Riverside Spa, and in the other direction you can enjoy local iconic eateries like LICS Ice Cream, Nove Nine Diner, and the Lazy Loaf and Kettle. Foothills Hospital and the Alberta Children’s Hospital are also nearby, and primary routes connect you quickly to an easy escape to the mountains whenever they call.
