Welcome to Square Butte Ranch
Nineteenth Century Lifestyle - Twenty First Century Luxury
Developed to capture the romance and spirit of the Old West while providing homeowners with all the modern-day comforts. Square Butte Ranch is a private recreational "bare land" condominium development of 48 units scattered throughout 480 acres of paradise in the Rocky Mountain foothills. Nestled between prairie skies and majestic mountains, the landscape features mixed coniferous and deciduous tree cover which frames the open meadows and ponds and focuses the eye on Mesa Butte, a major landform 1.5 km to the West.
Square Butte Ranch borders the Crown lands known as Kananaskis Country, Alberta’s recreational playground. Ranch residents can access Kananaskis Country on horseback, by hiking, biking, or cross-country skiing through the Ranch’s West gates. Square Butte’s proximity to Kananaskis Country provides residents the opportunity to sight abundant wildlife including deer, moose, elk, fox, coyote, muskrat, beaver, cougar, and black bear. Residents also share the Ranch with owls, hawks, falcons, whiskey jacks, jays, bluebirds, chickadees, nuthatches, quail, and many migratory birds.
The Ranch is otherwise surrounded by historic, multigenerational ranches which comprise some of Alberta's oldest ranching families providing residents and visitors the opportunity to see both calving and cattle drives. Upon entering the main gate you are welcomed in by tranquil ponds and horses grazing in the pastures along the private roadways. The "Town Centre" includes commonly owned amenities built in Old West style such as a "saloon" where residents can unwind and a horse barn where they can store tack and bring their horses for vet and farrier appointments. An outdoor riding arena, round pen and equine trails further beckon the riding enthusiast.
The community also attracts lovers of natural history and outdoor recreation with it's abundance of walking, hiking, and biking trails. Birders, dog owners who enjoy a ramble with their pets, and those who enjoy a campfire by the trout stocked pond (where permitted of course) find a welcoming community of the like-minded.
Just an hour southwest of Calgary, homes at Square Butte Ranch are truly unique and reflect the rich ranching culture from which it has grown and which inform its remarkable community spirit.
