While you expect to see these kinds of spectacular mansions in Vancouver or Toronto, they're not as common for Calgary. Just outside the city, this dream home blows any fancy acreage out of the water with a private lake right in the backyard. This is straight out of a fairytale and will have you wishing you had a wealthily relative to reconnect with.
According to the listing, this massive single-family home sits on 15.8-acres and is surrounded by endless green space and what the realtor describes as a "large pond".
But let's be real, it's huge and definitely more like a lake than a pond.
That's just the outside, the inside of this mansion has over 4,000 square feet of cushy living space.
There are so many places to kick up your feet, like in front of the floor-to-ceiling fireplace or maybe in the cozy library. And there's plenty of space for you and all your friends with four huge bedrooms.
Then there's the basement, which has a media room with an overhead projector. Imagine how much better that would make bachelor night or NFL Sunday.
But really, the gorgeous "gourmet chef's kitchen" is the star of the show in this home. If you like to be fancy when you cook, there's so much space to play. It has a great big center island and the most extraordinary stove we've ever seen.
Basically this mansion is the perfect rural retreat that's still nice and close to the city.
All you need to do is win the lottery or convince about 50 of your closest friends to buy in on this $4.8 million dollar property.
