Incredible country living close to the city! Thousands of trees, filled with birds and wildlife, thrive on this 4-acre property tucked away in Bearspaw. The finely crafted, custom-built McKinley Masters home is loaded with too many great features to list but we will squeeze in as many as we can in these remarks - to really appreciate this property you need to see it in person! With over 7,400 sqft of living space, this home has been thoughtfully designed for changing family needs. There are two separate entrances from the front of the home and the spacious main entrance is a show stopper - you will be impressed by the soaring ceiling, custom slate floor with ammonite detail, and graceful curving staircase. A 2nd smaller entrance leads to a large mudroom with access to the garage and is ideal for organizing all the family gear with floor-to-ceiling lockers and a built-in closet. The spectacular great room is graced by an impressive feature wall with a beautiful river rock fireplace flanked by built-ins and custom wood paneling, and this generous space is enveloped by 2 walls of windows that offer amazing views of the surrounding property. The custom-designed, gourmet kitchen boasts a large center island with a 2nd sink and lots of seating and is perfect for entertaining! This sunny dream kitchen features lots of cabinets, granite counters, a computer station, and stainless steel appliances (including a 5-burner Dacor gas cooktop, wall oven, and a Subzero fridge). The expansive kitchen opens onto a cozy breakfast nook with a corner fireplace and access to a deck for outdoor dining - both spaces share lovely views of nature. The formal dining room features 12' tray ceilings and is connected to the kitchen through a clever walk-through butler pantry. Doing laundry is a breeze in the spacious laundry room. Upstairs an open loft leads to a flex/play area, a huge bonus room that is over 770 sqft, two bedrooms with built-ins and walk-in closets, and a master retreat with a vaulted ceiling and a spa ensuite. Designed with fun in mind, the walkout basement offers a large family/games room with a 3rd fireplace, built-ins and a wet bar, one more bedroom, an office with built-in cabinets and a built-in desk, a bathroom with a shower, a huge exercise room with a wall of mirrors, large storage room, and a cold storage room.
