    This is NOT in Calgary. It is northwest of Calgary in the Municipal District of Rocky View. Alberta real estate is extremely overpriced. This is $540/square foot. That’s outrageous. The view isn’t worth that much nor is the land. That land is in actuality worth about maybe 50K and at say $200 a square foot, considering this is nothing spectacular, I’d value this at a generous $1.7M. What’s with the cheap white trim, bad kitchen layout, awful master bath, etc? This is just one more McMansion with an indoor pool. Whoop di do.

    The foyer is superb; The dining room is also nice, but not something truly exceptional.

    Overall it’s a nice estate, but that’s it.

    This home is almost like the other one in terms of the interior. Obviously the theater is nice. Anyone else think the master bathroom is overdone?

    Not bad, but it’s getting hard to differentiate the interiors on these Canadian homes.

    It’s perfectly nice but nothing special. For the size and apparent style, the price doesn’t seem too bad; if this house were in Seattle it would be a lot more than this. Then again, I have no idea what prices are like in this area, or for that matter what the neighborhood is like where this house sits. So it’s nothing special, but it’s also not a $20,000,000 house either.

    There are some nice elements to the interior but I think the interior needs to be de-formalized. It would feel a lot warmer and more comfortable with more of a lodge-y or French country interior. I can’t stand the kitchen. It’s trying to be fancy, but it’s just plain…well, plain. The layout is very wonky too. I like the theater, but I’m wondering how comfortable those seats would be when watching something like the full-length version of Cleopatra. I think my butt and back would get sore after a while. The pool area has possibilities but it needs less white/beige.

    @Daniel: Yes, the master bathroom is overdone. That built-in is ridiculous and doesn’t go with the rest of house (OK, maybe the kitchen, I covered that already).

    Here’s my take on the kitchen. I don’t like the flooring or the colors/finishes, but the layout isn’t as bad as some we’ve seen here recently. I love the idea of the 2 swinging doors between the large freezer & the fridge. If they had just left off the 2nd island in front of the stove, it would be so much better! See why this violates ALL the rules below:

    Any kitchen designer will tell you about the WORK TRIANGLE. The “work triangle” is defined by the National Kitchen and Bath Association as an imaginary straight line drawn from the center of the sink, to the center of the cooktop, to the center of the refrigerator and finally back to the sink. The NKBA suggests these guidelines for work triangles:

    •The sum of the work triangle’s three sides should not exceed 26 feet, and each leg should measure between 4 and 9 feet.
    •The work triangle should not cut through an island or peninsula by more than 12 inches.
    •If the kitchen has only one sink, it should be placed between or across from the cooking surface, preparation area, or refrigerator.
    •No major traffic patterns should cross through the triangle. Efficiency is the triangle’s main goal, as it keeps all the major work stations near the cook, without placing them so close that the kitchen becomes cramped. The work triangle is also designed to minimize traffic within the kitchen so the cook isn’t interrupted or interfered with.

    THIS IS HOW I ALWAYS JUDGE A KITCHEN, by stripping it down to its bare bones and seeing if it is perfect, needs remodeling (how much $$), or if it should be ripped out and/or avoided. I would say a large % of my judment on a home is based on the kitchen. I do know of a home that satisfies all other areas except the kitchen is hideous. I’d still take it because the kitchen is only cosmetically ugly. The work triangle is perfect and ‘tight’. This means you could prepare great meals with sunglasses on!
