Silvertip Ranch is a unique acreage community with municipal water coming from High River - the perfect urban convenience! This home sits on 3.78 acres of fully irrigated and landscaped property ? backing directly to an environmental reserve and the Highwood River!
Private Nature Retreat
This unique custom home is a perfect example of complete integration between interior and exterior living space. Walls of oversized windows allow for amazing views of the land and gardens to be enjoyed from each and every room. This premiere residence is truly a modern acreage sanctuary. Totally surrounded by nature, this home is a clear respite from the hustle and bustle of city living, yet located only minutes from all amenities, and only 10 minutes to Calgary. This is a perfect home for those seeking peace and harmony, and an integration with their natural surroundings.
Modern Minimalist Design
Boasting a striking contemporary style, this home was built for the discerning buyer seeking an open living space. The focal point and central hub of the home is the enormous 2-storey living room with soaring 22-ft ceilings and an amazing stone clad fireplace. The 24-inch porcelain tile floors and clean decor are an outstanding testament to modern minimalist design. This central living area is flooded with natural light from all the windows on the main and upper floors, and is a perfect area to relax or entertain.
Designed to be as open as possible, the upper floor overlooks the 2-storey living room below, and displays an eye-catching oversized oak molding. This contemporary take on the classic crown is the perfect compliment to the 11-ft knockdown ceilings found throughout the upper floor. The clean lines of the oak and spindled railing is a perfect choice for this home as it does not interfere with the flow of light and air space between these two floors.
The upper floor also features two large loft areas that overlook the lower level. The first is currently used as a games area with a pool table (negotiable). The second loft has floating bookshelves and is currently used as the home office. This large space could easily be converted to a 4th bedroom with a cheater ensuite bathroom if desired.
Enormous Open Kitchen Area
The large open kitchen area at the rear of the home has 9-ft knockdown textured ceilings with contemporary lighted tray detail. The floor to ceiling windows run the entire length of the room, offering a gorgeous view of the plants and trees beyond. In front of the kitchen is an enormous dining area, which could easily house a table for twenty or more. On either side of the kitchen space are large flex rooms. Given the wide-open design of the dining area and two living areas, these spaces could easily be redesigned into family rooms, music rooms, or sitting areas.
The spacious kitchen features mint condition custom oak cabinetry, sleek granite countertops, and grey tiled backsplash. The large curved island has an enormous breakfast bar that easily accommodates 6-10 bar stools. The executive appliance package includes a Sub Zero fridge with bottom freezer and custom paneled door, two Thermador wall ovens, two Miele dishwashers with custom paneled doors, a trash compactor, two garburators, and a Thermador 6-burner gas cooktop.
Off to one side of the kitchen is a floating oak shelving unit with front bar area and extensive rear storage. Plumbing and wiring is in place for a built-in coffee maker in this area if so desired. Tucked behind this built-in is the large guest powder room and spice pantry storage. Direct access to the oversized wrap around patio and BBQ area is found from this living space, making this the perfect area to entertain guests indoors and out. The second living space has a beautiful wood-burning stove and is a cozy area to relax. Access to the rock garden patio area with the pond and fountain can be found from this side of the home, where a large mudroom offers storage for shoes and jackets.
Peaceful Master Retreat
The main floor master bedroom is the ideal retreat, featuring two walls of windows and 24-inch porcelain tile flooring. French glass doors allow the bedroom to be opened to the living room, and a private sliding door allows for direct access to the hot tub area. The master bedroom also has a large walk-in closet with built-in organizers and a spa-like ensuite bathroom with an amazing view outdoors. This spacious ensuite bathroom has an oversized vanity with marble counters and dual sinks, a private water closet, large jetted tub, and an oversized walk-in shower with dual showerheads.
Additional Living Space
Off the living room on the main floor is the media room, originally designed to be a home office. This room has French glass doors, and private access outside. With 24-inch porcelain tile floors, and oversized windows, it blends perfectly into the main floor living room.
The upper floor houses the two loft areas, plus two enormous spare bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Each bedroom has 11-ft ceilings and oversized windows from which to enjoy the views. The middle bedroom has a large walk-through closet and full ensuite bathroom. If a fourth bedroom is desired in the lofted office area, it could be built to have cheater access to this bathroom, making it a Jack and Jill. Otherwise, one large four-piece bathroom is accessible from the hallway. Each existing upper floor bathroom has a large vanity with marble countertops, oversized mirror, and a soaker tub with tile surround.
Extensive Landscaped Grounds
This executive home features 3.78 acres of fully irrigated, landscaped privacy. Greenery exists from the tree-lined driveway all the way to the environmental reserve on the rear of the lot, where the Highwood River runs below.
The enormous wrap around patio off the kitchen is perfect for cooking and outdoor dining. The large open fielded area on the front side is perfect for playing games with the family.
On the sunny South side of the home sits another large stone patio overlooking the gorgeous rock garden with pond and fountain. With loads of trees, bushes, and perennials to look at, this is a beautiful area to sit outside in the sunshine.
