We’d like to think of Albertans as humble folk. We don’t need big extravagant houses, pools, and home gyms… but that doesn’t mean we don’t want them. Turns out, those who have the money, spend it, even despite our low maintenance, prairie reputation. Curious to see what that looks like? Here are the 8 most expensive homes in Alberta right now.
Located in the beautiful Rocky Mountains 123 Cairns Estate is Alberta-inspired architecture at its very finest. With 6 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, and 10,000 square feet of space this bad boy is listed at a whopping $12.7 million CAD. Its best feature? A hidden staircase that leads into a stone wine grotto.
Where: 123 Cairns Landing, Canmore, AB
Price: $12,700,000 CAD
Built at the astonishing cost of almost $20 million dollars, the 11,000 square-foot oasis is a quarantine palace with state-of-the-art technology and higher-than-high quality finishes. With 5 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, this prestigious estate has more amenities than a 5-star resort and a view to boot.
Where: 2906 Marquette Street SW, Upper Mount Royal Calgary
Known as Calgary’s Caste, this incredibly Aspen Heights Property features over 14,000 square feet, 6 bedrooms, a full-sized elevator, a 10 car parking garage, and a Swarovski chandelier probably worth more than what we make in a year. It also has something called a ‘candy lounge,’ a dry sauna home theatre, and more. Talk about a quarantine palace.
Where: 44 Aspen Ridge Heights SW, Calgary
This contemporary penthouse in Eau Claire would drip luxury if it was soaking wet. With unreal views of the city, the mountains, and the Bow River, marble everything, and a kitchen sink designed by Porsche (yes, really). At a listing price of $8,599,900, this two-bedroom, 3 bathroom sky-palace is perhaps the most over the top in Calgary’s inner core.
Where: 1307-738 1 Avenue SW, Calgary, AB
Overlooking Alberta’s beautiful Sylvan Lake, this wildy spacious bungalow has 4 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sky-high ceilings, and plenty of privacy. Though the home itself is crazy nice, the 85 acres of waterfront land is the real kicker here. Talk about having room for activities!
Where: 2210B Township Road 392, Rural Lacombe County, Alberta
This custom-built estate is as elegant as she comes. With 7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, and 3 additional powder rooms, this old-money mansion is large, in charge, and up for grabs! Enjoy unreal views, arched doorways, an incredible open concept kitchen and fireplaces throughout as well as a wet bar, theatre, and a game room – for only a few milli.
Where: 33130 Twp Rd 243, Rural Rocky View County, AB
Listing Price: $7,988,000
With 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, and a 7 car garage, nothing about the palace that they call “Greystone Manor” even so much as whispers “humble.” Made from stone, tears of the middle class, and brick, the exterior is extravagant, while the interior is decked out in carved maple paneling and “glazed groin-vaulted and barrel ceilings.” Also, as if that wasn’t enough, the manor also features onyx countertops and copper dealing throughout.
Where: 227 Church Ranches Way, Rural Rocky View MD Rural Rocky View County
Listing Price: $6,980,000
With an unreal view of the Rockies and acres upon acres of land, Bar C Ranch is exactly the kind of place you’d expect to find minutes from Banff. This is not the kind of place where you just eat and sleep, this is the kind of home where you explore, experience, and work hard to maintain. We can only hope that whoever has the money to buy this place, saves some room in their budget for a few ranch hands because this place is a project.
Where: 73195 Highway 40, Waiparous, Alberta
So there you have it, folks. The most expensive homes in Alberta right now. We can’t even imagine waking up in places like these. Sigh, what a dream that would be.
