Beat the Heat with Calgary’s Pool Properties!

Summer has finally arrived in Calgary! And there’s no better way
to enjoy it than lounging around your backyard pool, BBQ going, beers flowing,
kids splashing and friends chatting. What’s that? You don’t have a
backyard pool? Don’t fear! Here are a handful of Calgary’s pool-blessed homes
up for sale right now.

12014 Lake Erie Road SE, Lake Bonavista, Calgary, T2J 2L8


MLS® Number: C4071768

This home is just waiting for a big family to fill it. There’s
tons of space: five bedrooms plus a den with a built-in murphy bed and four
bathrooms. Plus it’s just a couple of streets from Lake Bonavista—a great
option for sun-filled family fun.

But it makes our list because you don’t even need to go that far
to enjoy the water. The big backyard has an in-ground pool with a kid-friendly
diving board and sweet deck. You can see the pool from the kitchen area, so
it’s easy to keep an eye on the little ‘uns while you make dinner (or a

455 Cantrell Drive SW, Canyon Meadows, Calgary, T2W 2K8


MLS® Number: C4060556

This Canyon Meadows bungalow has a great pool surrounded by a
wooden deck. If the kiddos get bored of splashing around (like, when pigs fly)
there’s a park right behind you.

There are three bedrooms on the main floor. The basement is fully
furnished with a forth bedroom, a den and a sauna! There are some nicely
done renovations and it looks like there’s opportunity to add value here, too.

237 Scurfield Place NW, Scenic Acres, Calgary, T3L 1T4


MLS® Number: C4069576

This is currently the only house in the north, with a pool, under
the million-dollar mark. So we don’t think it’ll last long! Plus it’s right on
Scurfield Park (you can see the swings from the deck), and just an easy hop
away from Crowchild and Stoney.

But it’s the 32’ in-ground pool that makes this a great summer
home. There’s a funky spiral staircase from the deck to the pool. And there’s a
slide large enough for the biggest of kids!

307 Deer Park Place SE, Deer Run, Calgary, T2J 5M3


MLS® Number: C4071180

Three-o-seven (as this home has been dubbed) was built for a
family that knows fun. The back yard has a stone patio, a heated in-ground
pool, cedar decking and a gas BBQ hook-up. Inside there’s a custom oversized
kitchen island large enough for more friends than we have, a lockable liquor
cabinet and… drumroll please… dramatic custom lighting!

We really like the custom fence that surrounds the pool. Safety,
kids, pools… this just makes good sense. Oh, and we should mention there are
four bedrooms and three bathrooms over this four-level split.

148 Parkglen Crescent SE, Parkland, Calgary, T2J 4M1


MLS® Number: C4068253

The listing declares this bungalow a “private oasis.” That might
be a little cheesy but it may also be true! It’s on a big pie-shaped lot with a
16’ x 32’ in-ground heated pool. The surrounding landscaping is pretty enough
to impress your friends but not so precious the kids can’t run wild.

As if pool-side fun isn’t relaxing enough, this house also has a
sauna in the finished basement! Plus there’s a fireplace and lots of upgrades
throughout the six bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Calgary’s summers are short so you might wonder if a pool is
really worth it. We argue that it’s worth making the most of the long, hot
days! If you’re tempted by one of these properties, or want to look into
others, a Virtuo matched realtor can help.
