Building ID: Private Homes
Unit: Silvertip Heights
Description: Welcome to a unique architecturally designed private residence that is set high on a mountain near the end of a quiet cul de sac overlooking the town of Canmore, Alberta. The home was completed in 2008 and will appeal to people with an interest in modern design with an alpine flair. The house is located in a four-season development centered around a golf course and backs onto miles of protected government land with hiking, biking, and winter sports out your door. The home features spectacular mountain views from every angle.
This 5800+ square foot home boasts 4 bedrooms, all with hand-laid glass mosaic tiled ensuite bathrooms. There is an additional powder room off the kitchen/dining area. The house is large enough for family reunions or corporate retreats, yet intimate in scale for smaller groups. The bedrooms are spread out in the house over 3 levels to provide the maximum amount of separation and privacy. Just a few of the unique touches include reclaimed maple flooring, imported Italian door hardware, heated ensuite floors, quarter-sawn white oak cabinetry, and an indoor rock climbing area!
Main Level: The large foyer leads into the open concept kitchen/dining area with reclaimed maple hardwood flooring throughout. The fully-equipped kitchen features everything you need to prepare the perfect meal and Whirlpool stainless steel appliances: double oven, gas 5-burner cooktop, side-by-side refrigerator with icemaker, dishwasher, microwave oven. Enjoy a quick bite to eat at the eat-in bar (seats 6) or sit down for a grander meal at the dining room table (seats 12). The custom kitchen features quarter-sawn white oak cabinets and top-of-the-line appliances. Don't forget to turn on the gas wall fireplace to set the mood while enjoying dinner! You can relax in the spacious living room in front of the river-rock fireplace while reveling in the mountain view that surrounds you.
Upper Level: The upper level features a grand master bedroom with custom walk-in closet and an indoor balcony which looks onto the 3-story indoor rock climbing area. The ensuite bathroom features a walk-in shower with glass enclosure and double vanities with plenty of storage. At the end of your day of hiking/skiing/golfing, enjoy a soak in the jetted soaker tub while enjoying the mountain view prior to climbing into the queen size bed. You'll wish you could stay forever.
The upper level is also home to the 2nd bedroom, featuring an ensuite bathroom, large closet and queen bed. Use the office area and computer to email all your friends and tell them what a great time you are having in the Canadian Rockies. Wireless internet access is also available for those guests that would prefer to use their own computer. If you haven't gotten enough of the views from the numerous windows, take a stroll on the large balcony that wraps around the side of the home, and connects to the even larger balcony down below.
Lower Level: If you are travelling with kids, they will love the
lower level! The lower level is the ultimate sleepover area! It features a bunk room with 3 single beds, ensuite bathroom, media room, ping pong table, foosball table and access to the 3-story indoor rock climbing area, with bouldering wall*. For entertaining, enjoy use of the large wet bar to mix your favourite cocktails, or pour a glass of wine from a bottle that's been chilling on the wine cooler. *This area can be locked off so curious kids can look, but not touch. Children must be supervised when using the climbing area.

This house really has it all. The location and view are amazing. The space and facilities were great. The rock wall was unbelievable. We were a group of old college buddies (age of 35-40) that came to ski for the weekend and would without a doubt return.
