With 5 bedrooms (and flexibility for a 6th bedroom) and 6 bathrooms, The Sayre Estate easliy accomodates larger families and/or ample room for guests with the separate Coach House offering two bedrooms, a full kitchen, full bathroom, living room and a heated double garage below. The grounds feature a regulation size tennis court, a large deck, and numerous open areas of manicured lawns and landscaping. Heated parking for 6 vehicles and large spacious driveways that can easily accommodate a dozen or more vehicles means there is ample room for large gatherings and events. A peerless location with less than 10 minutes access to the heart of downtown, shopping and restaurants 5 minutes away, The Glencoe Club, and highly rated schools all within short walking distance makes this estate truly unmatched in Calgary and surrounding area.
