About the House

Twin Gables was built in 1910 by a prominent Calgary lawyer, and the ambiance of the Arts and Crafts movement is reflected in every aspect of this beautiful home.
Run your hand over the fine woodwork and massive wainscoting and view the garden and surrounds through leaded glass and bevelled windows. Step back in time while having breakfast in the formal dining room still bearing its original wallpaper, and cast your eyes to the 9-foot high ceiling and notice the detailing in the corners of the room. Throughout the house there are detailed cornices and plaster work, original quarter-sawn oak boxed beam ceilings, original 8-foot high oak pocket doors and oak panelling on the walls.
To see the house in all seasons, visit the Twin Gables photo gallery.
