Nestled in the hills of Springbank just outside of Calgary, the Uplands Residence offers panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains from nearly every room. A lovely collaboration of stone and cedar pay tribute to its French Country-inspired exterior.
The estate’s transitional interior design abounds with luxurious details while honoring the light, openness and beauty of its natural surroundings. Living spaces boast of multiple eye-catching elements including glamorous light fixtures, barrelled ceilings, and extensive millwork and wainscoting. Large polished stone slabs throughout the house blend seamlessly with the home’s high-end finishes, including the kitchen island with its stunning waterfall detail. Custom-designed floating wine towers flow with the home’s art walls and dining space. A butler’s pantry and coffee nook off the kitchen are made complete with a built-in espresso machine, a built-in fridge and a hidden pantry door. Other features include the magnificent master ensuite and closet, a golf simulator, a sewing room, and the thousands of carefully selected details that make this home the masterpiece that it is.
A step outside onto the cedar deck reveal the home’s exquisite landscaping. Overhead heating, phantom screens, and a built-in fireplace are perfect for year-round enjoyment. Situated below, a hot tub has been carefully placed amongst rock retaining walls, creating the ideal space for taking in the breathtaking views of the mountains.
