Don't let anybody tell you it's impossible to enjoy the best of both worlds.
The Pinnacle at Silvertip represents a rare opportunity for those seeking to elevate their spirit in an unspoiled mountain wilderness while drawing maximum pleasure from a luxury home built to the highest specifications.
Nothing else in the Canadian Rockies compares to The Pinnacle at Silvertip: Eighteen naturally inspired condominium units that combine unsurpassed craftmanship and spacious urban design in a rugged forest setting.
Did you ever wish you could live on the edge of Eden? Then think about The Pinnacle.
"We call it elegance in the wilderness," grins Randall White, Sales VP for prestigious Stone Creek Properties, the tireless developer of character homes that has won a national reputation for customer service, excellence and reliability.
The Pinnacle is well named. Created with the sophisticated home buyer in mind, this unique condominium complex has been constructed from soundproof and fire-resistant concrete and was purposely placed at a higher elevation than any other residential development in the Rockies. The Pinnacle truly represents the peak of the homebuilder's craft. Nor can any other Rocky Mountain condominium homes come close to the unprecedented standards of all-around perfection set by these distinctive mountain residences.
Situated within a robust tee shot of the magnificent Silvertip championship golf course, the spectacular Timbers clubhouse and two fine restaurants, The Pinnacle is the latest jewel added to the crown of nearby Silvertip Village.
For lovers of pristine mountain air and wilderness quietude, there's nothing quite like The Pinnacle. These distinguished homes occupy a unique position, near the boundaries of majestic Banff National Park. Many offer stunning valley views, with southern exposure drenched in warm natural light. Other units look north, facing one of the region's many wilderness sanctuaries. These include natural wildlife corridors, well within sight of large and comfortable residential balconies.
"It's beyond words ... to sit high on your balcony and watch the deer come through at twilight," says White, placing particular emphasis on the fact that Silvertip has been designed in accord with the highest environmental standards.
"We consider ourselves stewards of this exquisite wilderness habitat, living in harmony with the indigenous trees, plants and animals that share our space," he adds.
"Responsible stewardship and long-term sustainability are important components of the Silvertip philosophy."
And yet this richly forested wilderness is situated a mere 15 minutes from the thriving community of Banff, one of the most desirable alpine centres in North America. Moreover, residents of The Pinnacle are only an hour's drive from dynamic Calgary, as well as its busy international airport.
Of course, recreational opportunities abound. Perhaps golfing "on the roof of the world" fits the bill. Or maybe you'd be happier conquering a local peak; trying your luck in one of numerous well-stocked trout ponds; or cross-country skiing above the tree line. Other options include caving, hiking and biking as well as ice and rock climbing.
Silvertip Village and The Pinnacle have evolved from the personal vision of Guy Turcotte, president of Stone Creek Properties. Dedicated to service and quality, he's a man who refuses to compromise.
For example, when Turcotte first conceived the dream of creating a European hilltop village in the rugged Canadian rockies, he assembled a design team made up of the most accomplished professionals. Then he travelled to France, Switzerland and Italy, where his hand-picked experts studied not only architectural character that could be brought to Silvertip, but also time-honored urban and town-planning principles. As a result of their hard work, the plan of Silvertip Village slowly began to take shape. At the heart of a full amenity resort, this classic alpine village is to feature pedestrian-friendly streets, piazzas and squares, re-creating an intimate European experience, complete with outstanding dining and cellars of the finest vintage wines.
Not far away stands The Pinnacle, consisting of roomy units ranging in size from 1,800 to 3,000 sq. ft., and equipped with every amenity, including underground parking; custom wood cabinets; large, light-gathering windows; tall Rundlestone fireplaces and exterior facades; magnificent large kitchens complete with stainless steel appliances as well as granite and marble throughout. It's up to you to decide whether you'd prefer floors of slate or of hardwood.
Demand for these exclusive properties has been intense.
And Stone Creek Properties is planning a Selection Event for buyers in early December.
