Withrow Heritage Home
The Withrow Heritage Main Home is a bungalow with a full master bedroom and all living necessities on the main level. The house has been completely renovated with all new plumbing, electrical, and heating systems, including a radiant concrete floor in the basement. Much attention and care was given to the finishes in this house, including high quality historic replica wood windows, fir baseboards and trim, and refinished original fir doors and hardware. The house is flooded with light, with large front south facing windows, and large side windows.
The Home features many unique, custom built millwork and structural features both old and new. A large size addition was added to accommodate a spacious master bedroom with ensuite and walk-in closet. The attic has been redeveloped into a beautiful, bright space accessed by a custom, sculptural spiral steel stair. The upstairs main level has a second bedroom as well as a guest room that has a custom built-in Murphy Desk that easily converts to a queen sized bed. These two spaces share a jack and jill bathroom. The kitchen is spacious with high end Fisher Paykel appliances, such as a 36" wide gas range. The home has some very unique historic features such as a large riverstone fireplace and the original (however decommissioned) water well in the basement!
The Withrow Heritage Main Home underwent a major interior and exterior restoration and renovation in 2015-2016, with all new insulation, windows, flooring, kitchen, bathrooms, utilities, and much more. The foundations were underpinned to create 8' ceilings in the basement, as well as to add a radiant polished concrete floor slab. The basement is developed with 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, and plenty of living space. The basement has also been configured to host a nanny suite.  The Withrow Heritage Main Home had such extensive renovations that it qualified for, and is now covered by, a new home warranty.
The courtyard space between the Withrow Heritage Home and Custom Laneway House has been landscaped and developed into a beautiful gathering space with an outdoor kitchen complete with barbecue, sitting, and gathering space. The space is bright, with privacy provided by a custom wood trellis canopy structure.
The Withrow Heritage Main Home is a Municipally Designated Resource, which comes with significant advantages such as access to the City of Calgary's Historic Resource Conservation Grant program, and the provincial heritage grant program, both of which help cover the costs of any future heritage-related improvements, upkeep, and repairs. This grant can be accessed once every 5 years, with the potential to access a maximum of $125,000.00. Items that these grants would cover include: New roof, new furnace, hot water tank, repainting the house, and repairing any heritage elements, just to name a few. The City of Calgary is also considering significant tax incentives for Designated Heritage houses in the near future. To find out more about the historic significance of this home, you can read here.
