Modern mid-century-inspired acreage retreat... in the city
With a subtle nod to the architectural genius of Frank Lloyd Wright, the home’s low profile metal roof, neutral brickwork and elegant lines blend seamlessly within serene surroundings located just a few steps from the North Saskatchewan River Valley.
Built on a 0.96 acre lot, this stunning acreage features a new concrete driveway (2019) with exposed aggregate accents and a 1,200 square foot, quad-door garage with heated epoxy floors, ample built-in storage and large floor drains.
The Anthony Henday is a quick 8-minute drive away and provides easy access to the rest of the city including restaurants, professional services, and shopping available in the nearby Currents of Windermere. Future plans for Riverview include a light-commercial site with all amenities, top-of-bank walking trails, as well as a community recreation centre and school.
Enviro-friendly upgrades include floors that breathe
Most of the flooring throughout the home is Lauzon maple hardwood from the forests of Québec that has been factory treated with their patented Pure Genius finish, which purifies the air by attracting and trapping pollutants.
Other energy efficient upgrades include an on-demand hot water heater, wiring for solar panels, and a building envelope constructed with a brick exterior, R24 insulation and 3’ overhangs — all of which contribute to efficient passive cooling in the summer and minimize heat loss in the winter.
In addition to the 130 recessed LED lights throughout, large windows, Solatubes, and skylights provide incredible natural light in every square foot of the home. A high-efficiency Lennox furnace and Elite FT boiler system were installed in 2014. Lastly, each of the four bathrooms is outfitted with water-saving dual-flush toilets.
Home automation features make this home smarter than you are
Try finding an acreage for sale in southwest Edmonton with more bells and whistles than this one? I’ll wait. In the meantime, here’s the lowdown for the technophiles who want to know more about the built-in smart home functionality this home features.
The hardwired home automation system controls the garage doors, thermostat, entertainment system including TVs and indoor/outdoor sound system, five security cameras, and the window coverings on the lower level and in the master bedroom. Everything is controlled using an app on any wireless device.
Classic mid-century interior design elements and luxe finishes
Positioned between floor-to-ceiling windows, the wood-burning fireplace in the sunken living room begs for long Sunday mornings with endless cups of coffee, a good read, and some soft jazz in the background. And if stacking and chopping wood isn’t for you, it’s easy to switch to natural gas as the gas line is already roughed in and ready.
Classic neutrals are punctuated by vibrant blasts of colour courtesy of the tangerine quartz countertops in the kitchen and pops of desert-sky blue and turquoise in the powder room’s mosaic tile feature wall. The effect is stylish, warm, and inviting.
It’s not all coffee and jazz though as fun, family-friendly features include an indoor treehouse next to the kids’ bedrooms with a slide connecting to the lower level.
Everything you need to entertain under your own roof
Potential buyers be forewarned: you can assume that the holidays — and every other social gathering in between (once we’re allowed again) — will be hosted at your house.
Gourmet chef’s kitchen
A festive feast will come together in a snap thanks to the chef’s kitchen with Thermador appliances that include two dishwashers, built-in full-size convection oven and a combination convection steam oven with warming drawer, and induction cooktop with downdraft fan. Prefer a gas stove top? No problem. The gas line is already plumbed in and ready for you. Additional features include an InSinkErator and built-in water filtration system with instant hot water.
Custom electric touch upper cabinets provide ample storage to hide away small appliances and lower cabinetry consists entirely of pullout drawers with built-in storage solutions.
Covered outdoor grilling station and indoor/outdoor space with TV
Take the event outdoors year round with your covered grilling zone featuring a deluxe built-in Napoleon BBQ. Relax and enjoy the sounds of nature in your fully phantom-screened indoor/outdoor area which is pre-wired for your outdoor tv.
Gather the fam for movie night and set the scene by closing your automated blinds and relaxing underneath the starlight ceiling feature. The home theatre system consists of a projector TV, built in surround sound, and 120-inch screen.
Audiophiles and musicians will love the music room, custom built with concrete walls and insulation for superior soundproofing and acoustics. Perfect for jam sessions or for listening to your favourite tunes at whatever volume sounds best to you. Need an office instead? This is the perfect spot.
Stylish wet bar
Why bother trekking to the local sports bar when you have a gorgeous home bar where you can shake up a cocktail or pour yourself a lager and keep an eye on the hockey (and football) scores on your dual TVs. Design features include gorgeous red quartz countertops and a hidden drawer sink that tucks away neatly.
All the comforts of home — and beyond — under your own roof
More than ever before, homebuyers want functional living spaces where they can enjoy every aspect of life — work, study, fitness, and entertainment — from the convenience and safety of their own home. This southwest Edmonton acreage for sale has these well-designed spaces in spades.
Full gym with adjoining bathroom and sauna
You don’t need to worry about booking a time slot at the gym with this spacious fitness room featuring wall-mounted tv and high-impact rubber fitness flooring.

The upper level features a custom California Closets organization system in the mudroom hallway and pantry, built-in stowaway ironing board in the laundry room, and custom built-in storage in the owner’s suite walk-in closet.
On the lower level, a spacious pantry includes plenty of shelving and an additional fridge.
Craft room / Study nook
Also located on the lower level is a perfect space with built-in shelves and a desk for crafting or studying, tucked behind a pocket door.
From the triple faucet, wall-mounted sink in the main upper bathroom to the wall-hung TOTO Washlet toilets with heated seat — these easy-to-clean bathrooms with heated floors have every modern comfort and more.
The owner’s en-suite features a stunning skylight and a velour-finish standing tub made from a volcanic rock compound that keeps bathwater hot for hours. The walk-in steam shower and marble mosaic tile floor are luxurious touches.
Meticulous attention to design details make this house an exquisite home
In addition to a functional layout and luxury finishes and upgrades, no design detail was spared in this beautiful bungalow.
From the moment you walk into the light-flooded upper level and even as you take the gorgeous floating staircase down to the equally bright lower level, quality construction and materials, and an eye for detail are evident throughout. Even the walls exhibit a seamless, expert drywall finish from top to bottom — no baseboards to clean anywhere!
The pictures only tell part of the story. This acreage estate home needs to be seen to be appreciated fully.
