“We will be building with a deep respect for this natural environment,” says Allison Grafton, president and founder of Rockwood Custom Homes.

After more than a decade-long hiatus, Stone Creek Resorts, the developer of Silvertip Resorts, have brought 58 new estate lots to the market.

“These are some of the very last single family and semi-attached lots available in our world-renowned development,” says John Third, vice-president of sales and community engagement. “As we move forward, our last phases of future product offerings will be multi-family.”

Stone Creek Resorts has implemented some of the strictest architectural and build guidelines for its Mountain Tranquility Place enclave, being one of the last remaining developments in the Alberta Rockies where building a new home is possible. “We have partnered with Rockwood Custom Homes as one of our premier builders,” says Third.

Led by president and founder, Allison Grafton, Rockwood will be building single-family custom homes in this alpine estate community, alongside a 24-lot luxury villa development with semi-attached homes mimicking their single-family counterparts and setting a striking architectural tone for Mountain Tranquility Place. Every exceptional home will have an equally exceptional location and alpine surround. Rockwood’s integrated and highly experienced team of interior designers, design project managers and construction personnel will build each villa with absolute precision; interior finishings customized to client preference.

“Canmore is a location of unmatched beauty. The fantastic part of owning property in Silvertip, on the sunny side of the Bow Valley, is that you are surrounded by spectacular views of forest, mountains, and incredibly vast, clear sky,” says Grafton. “We will be building with a deep respect for this natural environment. Rockwood is aligned with Stone Creek Resorts in the delivery of sustainable product to Mountain Tranquility Place, a world-class enclave in Silvertip which pays tribute to its unbelievable surroundings.”

Within the 24 semi-attached villas, 14 will be bungalows at 2,900 square feet called The Three Sisters, with exteriors named after each sister: Charity, Faith, and Hope in honour of each peak of this famous Canmore Mountain formation. The Peaks will include 10 two-storey models at 3,800 square feet called Lady Macdonald and Grotto.

“Each luxury residence is thoughtfully designed to ensure no wasted space, balanced with everything needed for a perfect mountain getaway home, investment property or permanent residence,” Grafton says.

With experience in building luxury homes in environmentally sensitive areas, Rockwood’s approach combines the magic of the surrounding topography with a commitment to sustainable building practices. Green energy initiatives include geothermal heating and cooling across the entire Villa project, with options for solar energy and electric car chargers.

Chief financial officer Matthew Llewellyn says Rockwood is invested in the long-term transformation of the community as it is a representation of the company, developer, and owners alike.

“Our homes are not short-term projects. They are legacy. They represent the dreams and forever homes of our clients who are invested in the positive growth and transformation of their communities,” he says.
