Once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of Alberta history. Welcome to Christie Ranch House, symbolic of the pioneer ranch families who settled the Symons Valley part of the Beddington district in 1889. Built by owner and trained mason James Christie in 1900, the home is significant as a Vernacular-style Victorian ranch house constructed with local sandstone and showing influences of the Queen Anne Revival Style. Once a well-known stopping place, today the house stands out in the landscape known today as Sage Hill. The ranch house possesses personal value for its associations with its owner from 1968-92, Sidney Robert (Bob) Blair, an innovative Alberta business leader who received national recognition. Lovingly maintained and updated over the years, the Christie Ranch House boasts exceptional integrity, retaining its form, Vernacular-style elements and architectural detailing. The Blairs renovated the interior of the house and constructed a distinctive and compatible north addition to the rear in 1968. The home was further extended to the north in 2003 with an attached garage/deck bay and functional entry bay. Meticulously maintained and updated with modern conveniences by the current owners, pride of ownership is evident the moment you enter this 5800 sqft, 5-bedroom home. Making appearances throughout are beautiful hardwood floors, custom glass doors, wood beams, floor-to-ceiling windows, decorative detailing, exquisite tile and woodwork, recessed lighting and wood-burning fireplace with copper artistry. Perfect for family living and entertaining, this home offers an open-concept living room/dining room and a chef’s kitchen with ample cabinetry, professional appliances including a built-in Miele espresso machine. An office, large mudroom and 3-car garage complete the main floor. Upstairs are 5 generous bedrooms including a master with ensuite and clawfoot tub, family games/media room complete with wet bar, laundry room and steam room. Set on a magnificent, sub-dividable 4 acres surrounded by parks and Nose Creek, this residential acreage is one of the last developable areas along the Symons Valley (zoned special purpose future urban development (S-FUD)). Don’t miss it!
