Late in February 2013 a magnificent French Country-style castle in Aspen Woods sold for $10,350,000 million, which means it is the largest sale in Calgary so far. Aspen Woods is a gated community nestled in the south-west province of Calgary, Alberta, including detached family homes and is close to numerous facilities.
This amazing stone-covered residence, custom designed and built in 2010 by Calgary based real estate developer Pacer Signature homes, is set on almost one acre of sweeping landscape and covers more than 14,500 square feet living space which accommodates five bedrooms, five full and four half bathrooms, five-car garage and carriage house, nanny suite, grand parlor, dance studio, full spa and wine tasting room. The grand round entrance hall is flanked by a wonderful cantilever staircase which leads to a stunning two-storey parlor complete with Swarovski crystal chandelier. The ground floor boasts a home theater featuring projection screen, starlight ceiling and leather lounge chairs.
The lavish mansion was originally listed at $12M with Sotheby’s International. Listing agent Corinne Poffenroth said, “While it has local and international appeal, we’re not surprised that we were able to represent local buyers for a property that is now iconic to Calgary.”
