Red velvet curtains and spiral staircases, grand libraries and manicured courtyards. There are plenty of homes on the market right now, but few have as much character as the iconic Calgary castle.

Located in the community of Mount Royal (fitting), 1108 Premier Way SW has a long history of stopping people in their tracks and piquing the interest of local creatives and photographers.

In addition to being an art collective for a short time, the home has also been listed as a ‘unique stay’ on Airbnb – but now its future is up to the buyer!

With four bedrooms and three bathrooms, this ‘enchanting estate’ has nearly 5,500 square feet of space and, included in the $1,399,800 listing price, is all the eccentric furniture.

‘Designed with royalty in mind’ the home has a primary suite with ample closet space, rooftop access and a sunlit sitting room nestled high in the tower, as well as a grand dining room, and a well-equipped kitchen – but it gets better.

Not only are the necessary spaces fit for a king, queen, knight or enthusiastic Shakespeare fan, but the Calgary castle also has a grand library, a spacious bar, a pool table, darts, and office space for the kingdom’s administrators… not to mention, it’s incredibly close to restaurants, shops and cafes.

If you’ve been looking for an investment property or are interested in living full-time like Charles and Camila, you can view the listing here.

Who knows, this time next year you could be waking up in a palace of your very own. Happy clicking and long live whoever puts in an offer.
