Silvertip resort Canmore is known across Alberta (and Canada!) as one of the top real estate locations for the discerning buyer. It’s not hard to see why!
Perched high above the Canmore townsite, Silvertip sits in the bench lands of the “Sunny Side” of Canmore. This may be a term unfamiliar to non-locals; “Sunny Side” refers to the north and east sides of the valley, with views open to the south and west. This side of the valley gets the best daylight sun exposure (especially in the winter). It is quiet, exclusive, and well-frequented by wildlife like Grizzly Bears and Elk.
Oh – and did I mention the massive iconic views of Three Sisters, Ha Ling, and Rundle?
In this article, let’s explore:

Home to various playgrounds and trails, Silvertip makes an excellent day-trip destination for families and casual hikers. More amenities to come in the future as the community grows will only serve to bolster the neighbourhoods offerings.
Silvertip, like all of Canmore, is a finite resource. Naturally bounded by the mountains and benchlands, this forested area can only grow so much. That being said however, the community still has room to run!
58 new dwellings have been released as part of their latest development area of Tranquility Place. This will include 34 single family homes, plus 24 duplex lots. Various other single lots still remain, for those ambitious enough to build their own home while seeking to avoid the “living in a rubble-pile” feel of a new subdivision.

When I work with clients shopping in Silvertip, I always keep their mind focused towards the future. In this growing community, what could be built that might change things nearby? If this will be a generational investment, what does the future hold for the home? Will the property work for your family now, as well as in the future?
