Hidden away in almost the centre of Calgary is Garden Crescent—a very private little alcove off Elbow with a centre boulevard boasting stately old trees and shrubs. The delightful homes circling this central island remind you of a quieter, gentler way of living, and is a most sought-after location for those who know of it. This mostly restored and renovated home at 118 has not been offered for sale in over 60 years making this sale a unique opportunity.
The charm of the early nineteen hundreds has been maintained inside and out. The entire home was stripped down to the studs, insulated, re-dry walled using new arts and crafts millwork, baseboards, and casings. All new electrical wiring, domestic and wastewater plumbing lines, plus new hot water heating/ plus new HVAC system. Very pleasing, quite open floor plan, high ceilings, well suited for entertaining.

There is a charming, east-facing balcony overlooking the back garden, catching the first light of day. The two front bedrooms have doors leading to a common sunroom/study, with a rounded wall full of windows facing the boulevard island. A new four-piece bath completes the second floor.
