I just finished uploading this House for sale, 928 38 Avenue SW, Calgary, Alberta

Artistically & technically brilliant, a grand & comfortable house with a rich sense of history yet all the best modern-day conveniences. One of a kind materials add a dimension rare to Calgary architecture. Exterior stone is large limestone blocks cut & finished some 300 yrs ago. Incredible 200-yr-old wide plank hardwood throughout. Irreplaceable collection of antique doors (c300 yrs old) and leaded stained glass windows (mid-18th century) create a wonderful ambiance, as do 3 substantial wood burning fireplaces. The bonus room needs to be experienced with its soaring ceilings and beams of old growth pine assembled using traditional pegged construction. Over 6400 sq ft of immaculately finished living space, including en-suites for every bedroom, beautiful master walk-through closet, large principle rooms that open completely to each other for entertaining or for every-day comfort. Historically accurate & built to extremely exacting standards. A treasure destined to become a landmark in Canadian design.
