246B Three Sisters Drive - 51° 05' 00" N 115° 22' 16" W

Living in Calgary, we are really close to the majestic Rocky Mountains.  We find ourselves zipping along Highway 1 to ski at Sunshine or Lake Louise, to play in the beautiful Kananaskis Country, to ride the trails around Canmore and Banff, to hike to viewpoints overlooking lakes and glaciers and to simply breathe in the crisp, clean mountain air.  We are having some grand adventures, seeing amazing sights and experiencing some extraordinary things but we love coming home and playing in our mountain backyard.

One hour and nine minutes, again and again and again ...

We started thinking .... why live close to the mountains when we can live IN the mountains??  Rather than drive an hour and a bit, what if we could step out our back door and be there?

Sooo, we've just bought a house in the mountain town of Canmore!

Slightly more house than we intended to buy but it meets all our requirements.  There is plenty of room for guests, a huge garage for all our toys, back garden for a future dog, soaring ceilings, mountain views and a gas cooktop!

We took the conditions off the sale today and now start the impatient wait for possession!
