A Glenora beauty offers space and comfort

This elegant, open-concept home takes up residence on a spacious lot in Old Glenora with MacKinnon Ravine Park across the street and the Clifton/MacDonald Memorial Park directly behind. In the front yard, a forest of deciduous and evergreen trees surrounds bubbling water fountains giving the property a private retreat feel, despite being moments away from restaurants, shops and professional services.

Few locations in Edmonton are as spectacular as this.

Glass, marble, and shades of cream keep the foyer bright while muted earth tones warm the living room finished in rich wood and granite. With over 5,640 square feet of finished living space, this 2-storey home has plenty of room for large gatherings and get-togethers. The well-equipped kitchen has granite-topped counters, built-in ovens, and a flush-mount fridge finished to match the surrounding cabinetry. This dreamy space is fit to prepare every imaginable meal—from grab-and-go breakfasts to multi-course dinner parties. 

The 432-square-foot great room fills with light that streams through floor-to-ceiling windows. The area is made cozy by a fireplace anchored into a 2-storey feature wall and a sunken conversation pit that begs for social gatherings. A spiral staircase at the far end leads to a bonus room and study area on the mezzanine where large windows help to keep the space well-lit and airy. A door provides access to a private balcony with views of the backyard. 

Three of the four bedrooms are located on the upper level, including the master suite which lives up to the expectations one might have of a home such as this. An expanse of windows allows for ample daylight and the clear-panelled balcony is the perfect place to take in the sun and views of MacKinnon Ravine Park. While each bathroom is luxurious, the master ensuite exudes a spa-like feeling with a spacious, glass-walled shower and an elevated tub to help soak away the stress of daily living.

the best in hidden gems around the city.

Enjoy barbecues, parties, and long evenings around the fire pit in the large backyard. Extra lawn furniture and equipment can be easily stored in the 4-car attached garage, accessible from the alley. 

It’s rare to find both a home and a neighbourhood that checks every box; even more so when it’s in such a desirable area. This Glenora beauty certainly makes the grade.
