Britannia is located in Calgary’s southwest. Although the area was annexed by the City of Calgary in 1910, no significant development occurred until the late 1950s. Britannia is within close proximity to River Park, Stanley Park and the pathway system. Britannia is approximately 4 Kilometres south of Downtown, and elbow Drive provides direct access to the central core.
The boundaries of the community are Britannia Drive to the north, Elbow Drive to the east, 50 Avenue to the south and 20 Street and Elbow River to the west.
THE LARGEST LOT IN ALL OF BRITANNIA...over 22,300 ft2 (85' wide with an average depth of 263'). An unbelievably beautiful + pastoral setting on a promontory that backs directly onto ravine parkland. THE VIEWS ARE STAGGERING with a 180 degree panorama that includes the DOWNTOWN SKYLINE AND THE ELBOW RIVER VALLEY. INCREDIBLY PRIVATE...it's amazing that such an environment exists just minutes from the downtown core + walking distance to Britannia Village. NOTABLE MID-CENTURY ARCHITECTURE which takes good advantage of the site and views. It has been respected but also TOTALLY UPDATED, RENOVATED AND MODERNIZED. It offers a wonderful open plan with large principal rooms, striking modern kitchen, sparkling new baths and tranquil bedrooms. Tremendous storage + fully finished garage. At the end of the day, this is ONE OF THE MOST REMARKABLE PROPERTIES IN THE CITY and the buyer can choose to enjoy it in its current form, expand it or build new and create a truly world class residence. A legacy property.More details

"My self and some family members have just experience both selling a property and buying a property through Joe Viani and I cannot say enough about the integrity, professionalism and knowledge of the industry that Joe demonstrated throughout the process. Joe was always available with candid, strait forward and knowledgeable advice, that had us out of one property and into another relatively quickly in a challenging market, with what I believe was the best deal possible on both ends."
"I will not hesitate to call Joe on my next moving experience, and strongly recommend the same for others."
"I do not often feel the need to write testimonials, but after working with Joe I felt compelled to do so""Firstly Joe's professional attitude towards real estate and business is second to none"
"Joe works hard for you his client and those hours pay off with the correct house for you the client . When I relocated Joe did his job getting me top dollar for my old house and in finding me a new one at a good price. Joe does things better through "hard work " scanning the MLS® listing, calling REALTORS®, making appointments and showing lots of houses, Joe goes the extra mile"
"Joe is a loyal, honest person with impeccable integrity who cares about his clients, you are not just another commission to Joe, he wants to make sure you are satisfied and retain you as his client"
"We would like to say a few things about Joe Viani.”
“As it was our first time selling a home we had no real idea as to what was all involved. Joe came in and helped us through the whole process. We were on a tight timeline and he was very aware. He was always available and offered us advice when asked. He made our home available on every possible website as well as paper ads.”
“When we sold he walked us through the whole process and made it very easy. He got us the best price we could have."
"His knowledge of the Calgary real estate market, building design and construction, and of the city of Calgary in general provided us with great comfort at a time when we were concurrently selling and purchasing a home"
"Joe is held in the highest regard by his peers and clients. We have recommended his services to numerous other individuals, who in turn were extremely complimentary of him both personally and professionally"
"Although, not currently active in the market Joe continues to keep us up to date with timely information and always avails himself to answer any questions that we may have."
"We look forward to working with Joe in the future"
"For us, the most important qualities that Joe brought to our situation was his honesty, knowledge and work ethic"
"When we sold our first house, we had bought another one first, and we were very disappointed in how our realtor represented and worked with us. At that point, we said we would never buy a house before selling first…until we met up with Joe. His honesty, understanding of the market, our situation and what our needs were, gave us the confidence to buy our next home before selling again, and the process went as well as it could!"
"Joe worked hard, kept us informed the entire way and we never regretted this transaction"
" Joe was wonderful and I'd refer him to anyone buying or selling a home. He was very professional and taught me about future home values, neighbourhood appeal, potential pitfalls and was invested in finding a home that fit my life."
