CALGARY -- It comes with millions of dollars worth of high-end finishing, a guest house, and sits on land once owned by the Ford Motor Company family.

And one of the highest ever listed homes in the Calgary area can be yours for nearly $38 million.

The 5,000 sq. feet. three bedroom, four bathroom Kettle Lake Ranch home situated on 242 acre parcel of land once owned by the Ford Motor Company family is expected to be on the market by Friday, said listing agent Mark Evernden with Sotheby’s International Realty Canada.

“To my knowledge it’s one of the largest and highest priced properties for residential within Calgary and Alberta area,” he said.

The home, listed for $37.888 million, is located west of Calgary, off of Hwy. 22 south of Priddis, less than 15 minutes from Shawnessy, and was finished three years ago.

The family who bought it 15 years ago spent millions of dollars re-contouring the land with bulldozers and earth movers as there are two natural kettle lakes on the property, one of which the house is built on, he said.

“They have, just in the house alone, close to $6 million ... into the construction,” he said, adding the house has been owned a woman and her husband, a successful businessman, who passed away seven years ago.

“So she completed the house, it’s about half the size of what their original plan was."
