If we asked you to describe an apocalyptic shelter right now, we’d bet a limb on the likeliness that it would look like a hole in the ground, a prison or a houseboat – unless you have some serious cash. This Curiocity Home of The Week answers the question, how would a multi-millionaire survive a zombie hoard, assuming that they weren’t able to climb?
HOME OF THE WEEK: 145 38A Avenue SW
Designed by the Sturgess architectural company that also brought the Glacier Skywalk to life, as well as one of Calgary’s most beautiful restaurants, Orchard, 145 38A Avenue SW is a YYC marvel.
With exterior walls higher than Seth Rogan on holiday, this 3 bedroom, 5 bathroom oasis exudes contemporary glamour and a sense of calm.
To call this place a house feels unfair. It’s really a compound, with an outdoor social space and an indoor garden. Though its bedrooms are large and its kitchen grand – the devil really is in the little details.
This 4,713 Square-foot palace, features a pair of imported antique mesquite doors, oak plank flooring and a unique rundle stone central island; all of which could be yours for the price of $4,950,000 CAD. Pocket change, really.
If you’d like to see more photos or have the money to actually inquire about 145 38A Avenue SW, check out the original Sotheby’s website here. The rest of you, don’t fret. We can’t imagine that brain-eating monsters will take to the streets any time soon, so there’s no need for a 0.25-acre complex. Our apartments will do just fine!
