The big sell: This Douglas Park home already has an impressive pedigree, having been featured in the Spectacular Homes of Western Canada publication. It was custom-built in 2007 for the owner of an award-winning design group, so standards are high and attention to detail paramount. The character exterior of the property is combined with a modern interior, which includes spa-inspired bathrooms, a “floating” glass staircase, a contemporary kitchen and clean lines throughout. The upper floor has a large office, and a master bedroom with a semi-open ensuite bathroom and walk-in closet. As well, there is plenty of built-in storage space throughout the home. The lower level has a two-bedroom secondary suite with its own access and laundry, while outside, there is a single garage and a south-facing rear garden.
