Executive Bungalow Given a Stunning Modern Upgrade
This client family had been searching for several years to find the perfect bungalow in a desirable NW Calgary community. After attending several Pinnacle project tours and hearing about Pinnacle’s Renovate or Relocate (ROR) service offering, they began working in earnest with Pinnacle’s ROR team to find a property to match their needs. While searching, they attended another renovation tour and bumped into a work colleague who lived in Brentwood. Months later, upon hearing about this exclusive listing, the work colleague got in touch with them to let them know about the opportunity to purchase this incredible property, before it was listed on the MLS. This home was truly a rare find; it was the first home built on Conrad Drive, nestled at the highest point, boasting a pristine, unobstructed view. After having the owner of Pinnacle assess the property and determine that the engineering and overall condition of the home would allow them to transform the home within their budget parameters, they placed an offer and became the new owners! Their desire to renovate the home met the wishes of the original owner who did not want it to be a knock down.
- Maintain the properties legacy by restoring the home through a renovation versus a knock down.
- Create an open floor plan, executive bungalow.
- Transform car port into a single car garage.
- Incorporate accessibility features for future aging in place requirements.
- Integrate Eco-aware components throughout the home.
How the Criteria Was Met
The renovation of this home required a full gut to the studs to transform the previous 3 bedroom bungalow to an executive style bungalow featuring an expansive master suite and flex room. Enlarging the dining room, master room and converting the existing carport into a single car garage, required 3 additions and incorporating Pinnacle’s largest free floating beam to date to support the vaulted ceiling. The fireplace was also relocated and all new HVAC and electrical was installed. Universal design aspects have been effectively incorporated to ensure this family can enjoy their forever home, no matter what comes from life’s changing circumstances. Eco-aware components have also been integrated, including extensive spray foam in the vaulted ceiling and a no maintenance hardy board exterior. Every engineering and design decision for this home has been extremely well thought out so that once completed, this transitional designed home with classy, rustic flare will encompass all the features that will allow this client family to enjoy the functional and aesthetically pleasing spaces and incredible mountain view for years to come.
