I have listed a new property at 179 Riviera VIEW in Cochrane. See details here
**Open House Sept 9 @ 11-2**Stunning custom design and extensive upgrades in this Riveria executive home will catch your eye from the first look. Riverstone accents and a barn-style garage door epitomize the feel of the vibrant Cochrane lifestyle. A stylish entryway has tons of light and a shiplap feature wall. The main level is a sunny and open space that you can enjoy all day thanks to big, triple-pane windows. A gourmet kitchen centers around a quartz-topped eat-up island with a farmhouse-style sink. Espresso and white cabinets form an elegant contrast with grey subway tile backsplashes, and high-end stainless appliances include a gas range, French door refrigerator, and a built-in microwave. In the dining area, custom lighting, built-in speakers, and doors to the deck are a dream for entertaining. A statement fireplace in the living room is a cozy spot for good drinks and great conversation. Also on the main floor, you’ll find an office and a powder room, and the entry from the oversized, double-attached garage has custom built-ins. Upstairs, a bonus room is the perfect evening hangout. To one side, in the sumptuous primary suite, a custom accent wall and lighting add a dramatic flair, and you can set the mood with built-in speakers. The ensuite is a spectacular oasis. Dual sinks and a soaker tub face a phenomenal custom shower, where a rain showerhead detachable body sprayer and unique tile work make every shower decadent. An extensive walk-in closet finishes this room. Both generous secondary bedrooms are on the other side of the bonus room, as is the main bathroom, where lovely finishes include quartz counters and upgraded fixtures. The laundry room is well laid out with an upgraded washer, dryer and cabinets. In the unfinished basement, you have nine-foot ceilings and room for a home gym, seasonal storage, plus a cold room for your wine collection. Or, start dreaming up your ultimate lower level! The utility area has a Vacuflo as well as a three-zone HVAC system for the main floor, upstairs, and the primary bedroom. Outside, glass rails on the deck mean you can enjoy the yard from any angle, while the lower patio begs for al fresco dining. Fruit trees join manicured garden beds in this landscaped paradise, and a second patio was made for evenings spent outdoors. Solar panels and a rainwater collection system are great exterior upgrades. This home is under a block from the river paths and set between two main routes into Cochrane proper. One is a straight shot to the shopping district, where you’ll find an extensive array of major stores and services. The other side passes the Spray Lake Sawmills Centre, which hosts year-round recreation and activities, as well as a farmer’s market. Cochrane has all the amenities of a big city, yet still has that small-town feel. Plus, you can get outside every day, whether it’s on the bicycle pump track, the golf course, or Ghost Lake. Camping, the mountain, and Calgary are also just a short drive away. See this one today!
