Whether you’re a house hunter, a real estate enthusiast, or just someone who loves daydreaming about mega-mansions (like us), welcome to another installment of our not-so-regular series where we take a look at some of the city’s most outrageously priced homes. Now, Calgary isn’t really known for its over-the-top market, but every so often we’ll see some pretty crazy places worth mentioning. So, without further adieu, here are the most expensive homes for sale in Calgary right now!
Known as Calgary’s Castle, this incredible 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. It’s fit 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 luxe spot for sale in Calgary’s inner core.
Where: 1307-738 1 Avenue SW, Calgary, AB
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!

Bought just recently at auction for $5.88 million, Calgary’s Terre Blanche French chateau is back up for sale. For those who don’t already know, this place 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 its own website and if that doesn’t scream “rich AF,” we’re not sure what does.

Listing Price: $7,695,000
Located in the Community of Aspen Ridge, this 5 bedroom home has 9 (yes, 9!) bathrooms, 10,000 square feet of space, and is situated on 0.83 acres of land. Needless to say, this place is huge. With an exterior built entirely out of stone and decor that screams ‘old rich people’ this unnecessarily large home and all of its bonus rooms – which includes an Irish-style pub bar, media room, hot tub, sunroom, and elevator – is totally worth its insane listing price of $6.5 million…. as long as you have plenty of money to spare.
Where:6 Aspen Ridge Lane SW
With 10,000 square feet of space, this 3-storey home is one to watch… because they’re actually still building the inside. Now, while we don’t know what it’ll look like quite yet, we can imagine that it’ll look pretty great, considering the exterior is rather cute. Other things worth noting? Well, it’ll have 6 bedrooms and 7 bedrooms and it’s the largest property in the area. Fun.
Where: 212 Hawks Landing Rise
Listing Price: $6,300,000
Have a bunch of cryto-coin burning a hole in your e-pockets? Well, you’re in luck, because the sellers of this 3 bedroom, 5 bathroom home, also known by Calgarians as the prestigious ‘Hotchkiss Farm’, are expecting bitcoin. From flowers to cannabis, grow greens in the massive greenhouse and package it using your very own processing plant. You can also buy and ride horses or relax on their beautifully landscaped lawn – the property really is your oyster. Also, worth it.
