In The Neighbourhood: Silvertip Resort
By Kate Barker
Stunning mountain views meet a secluded neighbourhood and a golfer’s paradise at Silvertip Resort. This mountain resort community boasts a world-class golf course, 2 restaurants with elevated dining experiences, a pro shop and some of the best mountain views in Canmore. Perched high above downtown on the north side of the valley, Silvertip Resort is in the ideal location to get maximized sunlight at any time of year.
Building in this community started in the 1990’s, and the homes were designed to respect the natural environment and create a place for people to live and play within the mountain sanctuary. The drive behind the development was to create an exclusive resort community that combined the ruggedness of the mountains with the style of a golf resort. As such, there is a mixture of amenities and seclusion within this community that tends to appeal to a more affluent home buyer.
Silvertip combines the connection to the natural world with luxurious living where no details are spared. Homes in this area are coveted, and they run towards the high end of Canmore’s already prosperous market. The houses tend to be large, usually over 3,000 sq ft, with huge windows to take in the stunning mountain views and natural sunlight. The finishes are luxurious, with an emphasis on fine craftmanship and creature comforts. Both inside and out, homes in Silvertip appeal to the finer things in life and design.
Most of the homes in the Silvertip community are large single-family houses or duplexes, but there are some high-end townhomes and apartment-style condos in the area. Unique for the Canmore market, there are still empty lots in this community awaiting someone’s mountain getaway.
In addition to the golf course, Silvertip has access to all the amenities that makes living in Canmore so desirable. Trails for hiking and mountain biking start right from the front step, and the charming downtown is just 5 minutes away. The gates to Banff National Park are close by, and so is the adventure they contain. The community is secluded, and it appeals to those looking for a private and peaceful mountain living experience.
