4 Reasons to Love Silverado

Nestled on the edge of Southwest Calgary, you’ll find Silverado a community that boasts stunning landscapes, with plenty of parks and pathways, nearby local amenities, and the prestigious Spruce Meadows. Silverado is the perfect home for our popular Villas of Silverado bungalow project set amongst an 80 acre nature reserve and located at the southwest corner of the community.

There are so many reasons why Silverado is sought after, but let’s take a look at some of the advantages of living in this popular community.

A Nature Lovers Dream

If you’re looking for breathtaking views of Alberta landscapes, coupled with an abundance of parks and pathways look no further. What sets the community of Silverado apart from other areas is its proximity to wide open space and exquisite landscape views.

Silverado boasts over 150 acres of extensive pathways designed for walking, cycling and trail riding, making it perfect for active lifestyles.  Another hidden gem in Silverado, is the scenic 80 acre nature reserve which includes picturesque Radio Tower Creek and adjoining natural wetlands. This beautiful reserve is the backdrop for our Villas project, where you can take a nature walk, bike ride or have a relaxing picnic, while taking in the magnificent scenery.


Amenities Nearby

If you’re looking for urban convenience, you’ll find it in Silverado. Between the local Silverado Shopping Centre, the nearby Shawnessy Shopping Centre and the Shoppes of Bridlewood, there are over 250 stores and shopping destinations in Calgary’s southwest.  Just within Silverado, you’ll find a variety of conveniences from financial institutions, grocery stores, medical services, as well as a variety of local pubs and eateries.

There are also plenty of parks within close proximity to Silverado such as  Fish Creek Provincial Park and Kananaskis Country which provides unlimited access to camping, hiking, biking, cross-country skiing and more just a short drive away.

Making this a favorite for some, Silverado is adjacent to the world-renown equestrian facility of Spruce Meadows, and only minutes away to a variety of golf courses. The community of Silverado has the best of both worlds with wide open spaces and urban conveniences close by.


Inspiring Community Design

This master planned community by Qualico Communities is one to be proud of. The architectural styles of Prairie, French Country, Mid-Century Modern and Contemporary Modern were carefully selected to provide a distinctive and varied streetscape that sets Silverado/Dressage apart from other neighbourhoods within the city.

It’s easy to fall in love with Silverado, as well as the addition of the Villas of Silverado to the landscape. Blending in seamlessly with the community, the Villas is an exclusive enclave of 50 attached bungalows with luxurious finishings and double car attached garages. The exterior design took inspiration from architecture that is prairie and craftsman style.  The exteriors are a mix of Hardie Board, stone, covered front entry and cantilevered fronts which create a distinctive elevation.

These low maintenance homes are perfect for the downsizer who value a lock and leave lifestyle but still want the perks of living in a community like Silverado.  At the Villas, you can leave all of the maintenance issues behind so you have more time for life. The lock and leave lifestyle is also a favorite for those who like to travel and not worry about the security of their home.


Mature Community

The community of Silverado is in its last phase and with the completion of the Villas will be complete.  In fact, the Villas are over 60% sold out so the opportunity to live amongst nature and in this pristine community is fading.  Living in a mature community has many advantages such as quick access to major roadways and good connectivity. Silverado is a fast commute to downtown via Calgary’s LRT and Bus Transit System in Shawnessy and provides quick access for leaving the city.

With the recent addition of the ring road, Silverado now enjoys access from three points, Spruce Meadows, 194th Avenue and Macleod Trail and Sheriff King Street. This addition has been an added bonus to residents whether its a daily commute, an evening in the city or a day trip to the mountains making Silverado a truly connected community.

Whatever reason you choose, Silverado is a one-of-a-kind community which offers all of the amenities of urban living surrounded by endless, spectacular greenspace. Welcome home!
