What makes a home? Well, we think that it’s important to find a place that really compliments your personality, so if you’re colourful or loud, something domestic probably won’t do.
Welcome back to Curiocity’s home of the week where we take a look at things we’ll never be able to afford. This time around we’ve got something incredibly unique and honestly, pretty freaking fun. Would we ever live here? No, probably not, but we know that someone out there will fall head of easel in love with it. Let’s check it out, shall we?
CALGARY HOME OF THE WEEK
Located in the NW of Calgary, 4624 Montalban Drive offers an incredible 360 view of the city and over 2,000 square feet of space.
With 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, this place is technically more down to earth than most of the mega-mansions that we feature. However, what it lacks in ‘accommodation,’ it certainly makes up for in its colour palette.
From its Kermit-coloured bathroom tiles to its bright red feature walls, and even its futuristic blue and silver exterior, there is really no mistaking that whoever lived there before was a creative.
Each living space in the house seems to follow a different set of rules – get this – EXCEPT for the art studio, which was painted eggshell.
In addition to its wild pallet, the home also has a one-of-a-kind lighthouse-type sunroom with windows facing in every which direction, a studio, a rooftop deck, and a perennial garden with Cherry, Saskatoon, and Pear trees. Neat.
Interested? Well, uniqueness like this won’t come cheap! As of right now, 4624 Montalban Drive NW is listed on Sotheby’s for a cool $1,295,000. If the paint or the price hasn’t scared you away, we encourage you to check out the original listing here. Now if you excuse us, we have to comprehend what we just looked at.
