Luxury meets pleasure in this Audie Benson Estate splendor

Audie Benson

IF you want a home with a story to tell, this 3.75 million dollar home at 53 Riverridge Road in rural Sturgeon County comes with its own motion picture! “Finding Mr. Right”, an upcoming romcom starring Canadian actors Elena Juatco and Marcus Rosner, was filmed on the .72 acre property. This stunning 4 bedroom, 9 bathroom, walk-out bungalow is the perfect setting for a romance both in fiction and real life. 

Located in Sturgeon County, just minutes from St. Albert, Riverstone Pointe is one of Edmonton’s best kept secrets. You’ll have the best of both worlds with the serenity of the countryside, and the city just a short drive away. Every home on this subdivision is stunning and is worth the drive even if just to take in the sights. 

Once you enter through the front door, you’ll be immediately wowed by the detail that Audie Benson has crafted into this dream home, from the 20’ open vaulted cherry ceilings, to an exquisite formal dining room and music room. A wall-to-wall library completes the area with a sliding ladder and lots of natural light for reading. 

The kitchen, located off the dining room, is a chef’s fantasy, boasting high-end stainless steel appliances including an eight-burner gas range stove with a double oven. A gorgeous, circular built-in breakfast nook is masterfully situated off the kitchen with its own windows, filling the space with ample natural light. Granite countertops and cherry wood cabinets offer old-world charm in this award-winning kitchen, with stone accents throughout. A balcony off the kitchen includes plenty of space for suntanning, barbecuing and enjoying outdoor meals on hot summer nights.

Why vacation when you can live in your own resort? The master bedroom, situated on the main floor off the living room, includes its own bar, walk-in closet and five piece ensuite with double sinks and a jacuzzi tub. 

Head down the stairs to the walk-out basement for all the entertainment you need. The rec room includes a bar, an old-world wine cellar, and a walk-out patio which leads to the beautifully landscaped backyard with stunning country views. A complete movie theater is situated off the rec room including reclining leather seats and a large projector screen. Three bedrooms can also be found in the basement, all with their own three-piece ensuite bathrooms. One bedroom has been converted into a fitness room, complete with a massage area.

From top to bottom, this extravagant home is not missing a single detail and the outside doesn’t disappoint either. The yard is fully landscaped from front to back with double waterfalls, bridges and rose gardens. A drive-through portico offers plenty of space for parking with an oversized quadruple attached garage with its own boot room, and a separate, detached double garage.
