Carraig Ridge is a hub of contemporary architecture, set in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in southern Alberta. 9 Carraig Ridge is 3.63 acres on a south facing slope falling from 1,338 to 1,318 metres and is designated for a Meadow Retreat. Meadow Retreats are a single story up to 2,500 square feet with the back sunken into the hillside. 9 Carraig Ridge has views to the south and west towards Ghost Lake and the mountains of Kananaskis. Immediately in front of the retreat is a gently sloping meadow with a walking trail along the base extending north and south through Carriag Ridge. The slope opposite is covered with aspen and spruce, is frequented by deer and the occasional mule deer and is adjacent to a seasonal elk migration route.
660 acres of secluded Canadian landscape are becoming a new centre of innovative contemporary residential design. Carraig Ridge is situated across south and west-facing slopes, ridges, lakes and woodlands, where landscape designers and architects have worked to ensure the houses will have minimal impact on their surroundings. Only 44 unique homes will be built on lots between one and five acres, preserving over 500 acres of this beautiful wilderness.
Carraig Ridge is in the foothills adjacent to Alberta’s Ghost Lake and the Ghost River. On the horizon to the south and west, the land rises up to form the spectacular peaks of the Rocky Mountains. It is conveniently located between the outdoor amenities of Canmore, Kananaskis Country, Banff National Park and the growing city of Calgary. Carraig Ridge itself offers dozens of kilometers of walking and biking trails, lakes and ponds, woodlands and grasslands in a rolling landscape shared with wildlife large and small. Carraig Ridge combines conservation with innovation. Design, craft, materials, and technology will ensure the existing landscape is given prominence, providing a permanent retreat for future generations.
