Carraig Ridge is a hub of contemporary architecture, set in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in southern Alberta. 9 Carraig Ridge is 3.63 acres on a south facing slope falling from 1,338 to 1,318 metres and is designated for a Meadow Retreat. Meadow Retreats are a single story up to 2,500 square feet with the back sunken into the hillside. 9 Carraig Ridge has views to the south and west towards Ghost Lake and the mountains of Kananaskis. Immediately in front of the retreat is a gently sloping meadow with a walking trail along the base extending north and south through Carriag Ridge. The slope opposite is covered with aspen and spruce, is frequented by deer and the occasional mule deer and is adjacent to a seasonal elk migration route. Carraig Ridge is an innovative community in 650 acres of natural landscape with 500 acres set aside in conservation; each owner owns a share of the common lands. Carraig Ridge is an escape from the demands of daily life in the city. Each of the 44 homes is meant to be a rural Retreat, focused on engaging views, both near and far, to bring the surrounding landscape into the house. Every lot within the community features stunning panoramic view of the Rocky Mountains. Carraig Ridge is a constant place. It exists to improve the rural character and natural integrity of its surroundings. The primary amenity offered by the community is immediate access to unspoiled, peaceful landscape. Thoughtful planning and community design ensures that every Retreat will enjoy privacy and solitude, without losing a sense of community. While each retreat is secluded and discreet, Carraig Ridge also provides plenty of gathering spots and recreational areas for residents to enjoy the company of their neighbours.
