I just finished uploading this House for sale, 530012 72 Street E, High River, Alberta

I have a dream - aplty describes this acreage, a culmination of talent from 2 artists, one expert on the inside, the other outside in their passion to build a home centered around recovered and repurposed items from around the world. A 3.8 acre oasis, mountain views to the west, prairie landscape to south and east surrounded by the town of High River. The north walls are constructed of flax bales, providing seasonal comfort and a quietness that you can hear. Plastered walls, chandeliers from Mexico, tin tile ceiling from the Waldorf Hotel in Drumheller provides a modern interpretation mixing the old turn of century English Cotswold farmhouse with the new. The bright and cheery kitchen with separate dining area brings voice to the days adventures. A curved staircase takes you to the upper 4 bedrooms; the master features a creative art studio space with Juliette balcony looking onto the 19 ft vaulted living room with wood burning fireplace. Every room, a story of treasures molded to fit modern day living.
