Sotheby’s International Realty Canada is unveiling The Manor House in Calgary’s prestigious Aspen Estates. Introduced at $12,250,000, the listing is the highest priced residential property to be introduced in the city of Calgary on MLS since 2009.
Wrapped entirely in stone, with nearly 10,000 square feet of living space across three levels, the English-style manor home features five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, two powder rooms and a 1,200 square foot patio. The residence has been designed to capture old-world charm while highlighting luxurious new-world amenities. In addition to a gourmet kitchen, great room with a grand fireplace and coffered ceilings, drawing room and Irish pub-style bar, the home features a media room, hot tub, sunroom and an elevator. An enclosed galleria connects the primary residence to a 1,000 square foot carriage house above a two-level, seven-car garage.
The estate was custom built by the current and original owner, prominent Calgary real estate developer Jim Quinn of QuinnCorp Communities, the developer of Aspen Estates.
“Aspen Estates is one of Calgary’s most desirable neighbourhoods and this estate is its crown jewel,” says Corinne Poffenroth, listing agent with Sotheby’s International Realty Canada. “Today marks the first time that The Manor House has been made available for purchase, and it’s a rare opportunity to access and potentially build upon a landmark legacy estate.”
Located on an acre of land, The Manor House’s expansive and exquisitely landscaped grounds are comprised of two independently titled lots. The property offers the capacity to build an additional estate home on a private cul-de-sac that features only a dozen homes.
“Within our global network, truly unique Canadian properties in top-tier neighbourhoods attract a lot of interest,” says Mary-Ann Mears, Managing Broker of Sotheby’s International Realty Canada in Calgary. “This is one of the most exceptional residential real estate opportunities to ever be introduced in the city of Calgary. With local, national and international marketing, we expect to pique the interest of discerning buyers here in Calgary and beyond.”
