Y House by Saunders Architecture is the next Retreat being built at Carraig Ridge with construction completion expect in the spring of 2021. 32 Carraig Ridge is 2.10 acres and the Y House sits at the ridge along the treeline at the north-east of the lot at 1,346 metres. The site falls to the south and west to 1,334 metres near Anna Lake. Screened by mature spruce from the drive to the east, the living spaces open to the western and southern views of Anna Lake below and the Rocky Mountains in the distance. The master bedroom frames Devil’s Head Mountain to the north-west while the office / third bedroom opens both to the expansive western views as well as an eastern terrace sheltered by mature spruce. Carraig Ridge is an innovative community in 650 acres of natural landscape with 500 acres set aside in conservation; each owner owns a share of the common lands.
Carraig Ridge is an escape from the demands of daily life in the city. Each of the 44 homes is meant to be a rural Retreat, focused on engaging views, both near and far, to bring the surrounding landscape into the house. Every lot within the community features stunning panoramic view of the Rocky Mountains. Carraig Ridge is a constant place. It exists to improve the rural character and natural integrity of its surroundings. The primary amenity offered by the community is immediate access to unspoiled, peaceful landscape. Thoughtful planning and community design ensures that every Retreat will enjoy privacy and solitude, without losing a sense of community. While each retreat is secluded and discreet, Carraig Ridge also provides plenty of gathering spots and recreational areas for residents to enjoy the company of their neighbours.
