Nothing says ‘I’m stinkin’ rich’ like having an outdoor pool in Canada, but don’t feel discouraged if you can’t take a midnight dip in anything larger than a kiddie pool. You’re among friends and hey, on the bright side, not having one also means we’ll never have to clean one! Still, every once in a while, it’s fun to dream big and pretend like a mansion is something we could afford. This week’s find – a stunning property in the Rural Foothills of Alberta, complete with insane views and various bonus rooms.
With 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, this prairie palace has 3,530 Sq Feet of livable space and 9.24 acres of land.
Covered entirely in natural rundle stone, the exterior of the home is something worth gawking over. it’s timeless, inviting and has an insane presence due to its size. However, what you don’t see upon first driving up the driveway, is that as we’ve already suggested, it also has an outdoor pool AND shares the land with a designated archeological historic site.
Hidden in the trees, homeowners will find a buffalo-rubbing-stone used and drawn on by the Indigenous people who lived there first centuries ago. Obviously, this raises some questions about the unceded territory the house lies on, so prospective homeowners should at the very least do their research.
Of course, the inside is also pretty incredible.
Not only has the foyer, kitchen, living room, and bedroom look like they’ve been recently renovated, it also has giant fireplaces, heated flooring, a wet bar, a games room and a hidden loft – perfect for kids.
If you’d like to look at the original listing and see more for yourself, you can check out the Sotheby’s listing here – where it’s up for currently up for only $1, 890,000 CAD.
Happy “house hunting”, friends!
