Well, hey there, all of you house hunters, real estate enthusiasts, and thumb-happy tappers who accidentally stumbled upon this article. We wouldn’t necessarily say that YYC is best known for its over-the-top residential architecture, but from time to time we see a few that are definitely worth mentioning. From the outskirts to the inner parts of the city, here are the 5 most expensive homes for sale in Calgary right now.

Springbank’s Terre Blanche Chateau 

Terre Blanche is an absolute beast with 9 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, a professional half-length basketball court, fountains, and a theatre; as well as a 6 car garage, elevator, a cigar room, and a 1250 bottle wine cellar. It also has it’s own website, and if that doesn’t scream “rich AF,” we’re not sure what does.

Waterfront Penthouse, Eau Claire

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 Porche (yes, really) this two-bedroom, 3 bathroom sky-castle is perhaps the most over the top in Calgary’s inner core.

Where: 1307-738 1 Avenue SW, Calgary, AB

The palace of Pinnacle Ridge

This Tuscan-inspired villa may look like ‘just another mansion’ but rest assured, this place is anything but ordinary. With arched ceilings and hallways, luxurious finishes, and more space than a NASA landing pad, it may not surprise you that not only has this home been used in movies and TV shows like Fargo – but it was also leased to Leonardo DiCaprio when he filmed The Revenant. If only those walls could talk.

Greystone Manor 

Oppulance is the word at Greystone Manor. With 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, and a 7 car garage there isn’t a square inch of this place that even so much as whispers “humble. The exterior is made of stone, tears of the middle class and brick, while the interior is decked out in carved maple paneling, rope, and dart moulding and “glazed groin-vaulted and barrel ceilings” and even features onyx countertops and copper dealing throughout. Fancy.
