Fully-Furnished Family-Friendly Character Home Walking Distance to Downtown

Our family-friendly home is in one of the nicest areas of downtown Calgary, walking distance Kensington's cafes, shops, and restaurants - walking distance to both U of C and SAIT.
Built in the 1920s, our home has been renovated to create a cozy, bright atmosphere perfect for our young family. There are two large bedrooms on the top floor. The master suite boasts a king-sized bed with wall-mounted TV and sitting area with vanity. The second bedroom is the perfect kids room with bunk beds, toys, and a homework station. A pocket door separates the second bedroom from another smaller room which is currently set up as a 'Games Room' with a TV and pull-out couch. Both bedrooms have large closets with tons of space and include top-quality bedding. The top floor has a full bathroom with glassed in shower and jetted bathtub. Towels and linens are provided.
The main floor has an open concept living room (with cozy stone fireplace) and modern kitchen, complete with all dishware and cooking utensils (blender, Kitchenaid Mixer, grills, slowcooker, etc). Patio doors lead out to a very large back deck with BBQ and yard (an uncommon bonus for an in inner-city house!). The backyard is lined by a brand new cedar fence and has a large grassy area to play, sandbox, and a trampoline. There's also a big office on the main floor, perfect for two work stations. The office has a printer and tons of space for storage.
The basement is a fully-furnished suite complete with kitchen and separate back entrance, perfect for a live-in nanny or for guests. The basement suite would also be perfect for a teenager.  

Probably the greatest feature of our home is the location - both in terms of all the amenities just steps from the house and the proximity to the Rocky Mountains. In just 45 minutes (drive), you can be in the heart of the majestic mountains with a number of world-renowned skill resorts and hiking trails at your fingertips.
The ideal renter is looking for a family-friendly, fully furnished place to call home! Our house is completely set up for a family to move right in while we're in Australia.
