Gorgeous home on Bow Crescent - own a piece of history!

This stunning property was built in 2005 using the original blueprints of the Purcell Elmslie “Prairie School of Architecture - Purcell House” built in 1913 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The reason to recreate the “Purcell House” on Bow Crescent was to highlight this community's respect for nature.

The house is known for its innovative arrangement of space, organized on a single axis, open from one end to the other, evoking spaciousness. Its overall design and decoration emphasizes a clean, modern aesthetic staying in harmony with natural surroundings on Bow Crescent. The wall of glass windows connects the interior of the house to the outside.

The entry to the home radiates beauty, welcome…

Congratulations on finding your new home sweet home! Sometimes finding the right house can be a long, complex process. You can breathe easy now: the paperwork is signed, the mortgage approved, and the keys are in your hand. This marks the beginning of a new chapter in your life and we couldn't be more excited for you.

We are adjusting to the new sunlight hours, clearing out the garage for a deep clean, taking down winter décor and pulling out the pastels and florals, and just generally preparing for something new. Lucky for you, a fresh start is inevitable. 

While having a new home is exciting, it can…

We hope you have a great day celebrating this historic Irish holiday! 

St. Patrick's Day was brought over to Canada from Ireland via Irish immigrants back in the 1700's. The first celebration of St Patrick's Day was in "1759 by Irish soldiers serving with the British army following their conquest of part of New France, a French colony in North America" (Time and Date). Since then, it has become a fun addition to the overall Canadian cultural experience. 

Here in Calgary we go all out for St. Patrick's Day! We may not turn our river green like they do in Chicago (seriously... check out this video from last year's St. Patrick's Day), the spirit of the season is alive and well. Looking for a place to throw back a Guinness and cheers your Irish friends…
