LISTING AGENTS Bob Aishford and Devin Stephens, Royal LePage Rocky Mountain Realty
The Action: Canmore agents Bob Aishford and Devin Stephens spent a month alone preparing a custom website with a 3D model of this custom log-frame home for buyers to tour virtually worldwide. It had steady traffic online and in person, but no bids last year, yet once relisted in 2016, an international shopper struck a deal at $1.85-million.
What They Got: An esteemed golf course lies at the centre of a mountainside community, where many custom homes were built between 2003 and 2013. Among them is this 13-year-old house on a nearly half-acre corner lot.
A pair of garages frame a walkway to this 2,541-square-foot residence with decks off the living and dining rooms. The former also features heated concrete floors, a custom Rundle stone fireplace, full height windows and vaulted wood ceilings with exposed rafters visible from a second-floor loft.
The main floor also accommodates a kitchen with bench seating following a curved wall of window, as well as a master bedroom with a walk-in closet and one of five bathrooms.
The basement contains two bedrooms with bathrooms, a gym, media room and fireside recreation area with a wet bar, cellar and patio access.
Monthly bare-land condo fees of $90 goes towards snow removal.
The Agent's Take: "[This home was] built and owned by the CEO of a custom home building company named Greystone Construction [which] has been building luxury homes in the Bow Valley for 25 plus years with a large portfolio and solid reputation," says Mr. Stephens. "It is evident that no expense was spared in designing and building this home."
Every aspect of the property is exceptional, from its grand size to its architectural style.
"The lot at 520 Silvertip Pointe is almost 35 per cent larger than the average lot on that street," Mr. Aishford states.
"The vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, heated concrete flooring and exotic wood finishings set this property apart from its competition," Mr. Stephens adds.
