Home of the Week: A not-so-traditional family mansion with 4 fireplaces
This Curiocity Calgary Home of the Week is one chandelier away from looking like Home Depot’s lighting department. The amount of marble tiling in this place is truly insane, but hey, we love boujee digs as much as the next person . Let’s check it out what 934 Riverdale Ave SW has to offer, shall we?
HOME OF THE WEEK: 934 RIVERDALE AVE SW
This 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom palace sits facing a picturesque tree-lined street in Elbow Park. From the white pillars on the veranda to the lengthy walkway shown leading to the front door, the wholesome exterior fits almost every all-American Hallmark family home stereotype. Full send with the “college football tailgate, girl next door” vibes.
This idea of ‘cinematic perfection’ wasn’t left at the doormat either. There’s a grand staircase in the foyer, and a seating room with french doors and a large marble fireplace that was definitely built-in with “oversized family portrait” in mind.
The kitchen is an open concept, which is always nice. There’s an adorable built-in breakfast nook, a ton of cabinet space, a large island and another fireplace. Kind of odd, but opulence knows no boundaries when it comes to being weird.
The living room has paneled ceilings, floor to ceiling windows and yet another freaking fireplace… which just leads us to worry that there’s no insulation or central heating system in this home. Possible? We suppose. Plausible? Not at all.
At the top of the stairs is a massive skylight which is a nice feature and several rooms including the master “sleeping quarters.” The master bedroom has its own seating room, a large closet, an incredible en-suite bathroom… and a fourth fireplace.
The basement features a wet bar, games room, and bonus room for you to use however you’d like. This place also has a Scrooge McDuck-like library and an office. This traditonal family home (lol)will only run you $3,795,000. A small price to pay for the family home definitely holding what must be the world record for most fireplaces. Never be cold again!
