Expensive Home In Calgary Is $11 Million And Looks Like NYC's Guggenheim Museum

We've found what could be the most expensive home in Calgary and it's absolutely spectacular. Right now, the unique home is listed at $10,888,888 and it's located at 102 Crescent Road NW in Calgary. Inside, the space is inspired by the Guggenheim museum in New York City with a glass dome ceiling and a spectacular curving staircase. It's a piece of NYC right in the heart of Calgary.

According to the CBC, the home used to be owned by the late Jim Shaw, CEO of Shaw Communications. When the house was sold in 2013, it went for a record-breaking $11.1 million.

The bidding for the home opens on Tuesday, November 12 at 6 p.m. EST and then on Friday, November 15 the home will sell at auction to the highest bidder no matter the price.

The contemporary six-bedroom home is just 10 minutes away from downtown and it sits on a ridge above the Bow River. Plus, the home has all the drool-worthy luxury appointments that you'd expect like a media room, a wine cellar, a massive private deck and a "professional" workout room.

They're selling the home furnished and as-is so what you see is what you get. Let's take a look inside what could be the most expensive house ever in Calgary and look at what makes it so unique from the Guggenheim-style features to the million-dollar view of downtown.

The massive entrance is full of bright thanks to the domed glass skylight in the ceiling. 

It's totally taking design inspiration from Frank Lloyd Wright's Guggenheim museum in New York.
