We’re going to talk about the neighbourhood of Blue Quill in south west Edmonton.

  • Prior to 1971 the area was active farmland, with 18 farmsteads being worked. Urban development began almost immediately after the annexation in ’71 and some of the farms were in use up until 1973.  Most of the housing was in place by 1980 although some building continued into the early 2000’s.

 

  • Today Blue Quill is a mix of single and semi-detached homes, condos and apartments.  An average list price of $269,000 is ideal for first home buyers.  Don’t let the lower list price fool you. The neighbourhood is very walkable and has good transit services.  A great Lifestyle score with solid Family, Safety and Recreation amenities make for an ideal family

  • Riverdale is located minutes from downtown in the flats, with the North Saskatchewan River on its South and East boundaries.  Back in the 1880’s, being only a couple of kilometres downstream from Fort Edmonton; settlers were quick to develop this area. Easy access to the river spurred development of a lumber mill and its famous brick yard.

 

  • Today, Riverdale possesses almost perfect Community Scores in the Family, Recreation and Lifestyle categories. Good transit, Walkability and a diverse age spread amongst the residents, all add to the desirability of the neighbourhood.  Throw in its unique location, and the average listing price in Riverdale comes in at just over $500 thousand.

If you were going to pick an area to live based on just the name, Silver Berry might be the one you would choose.  

  • Silver Berry is almost as lovely as its name and it’s a relatively new neighbourhood.   It’s located east of Mill Woods between 17th Street and 34th Street.  The area was used for farming prior to urban development. The bordering Mill Creek ravine was wisely left in its natural state.

 

  • Like many newer neighbourhoods, Silver Berry is home to a younger population.  Close to 90% of the residents are under the age of 60. So it makes sense that a large school is situated right in the centre of the area.  There are lots of open spaces and parks including easy access to Mill Creek to help keep the young and the young at

We're looking a well established and sought after neighbourhood to live; Meadowlark Park in Jasper Place.

  • In the latter part of the 1950’s the Town of Jasper Place developed some new neighbourhoods to compete with those in Edmonton.  By the early 1960’s the Town of Jasper place was annexed by the City of Edmonton and those beautiful new suburban communities, including Meadowlark Park became a part of Edmonton.

 

  • The average purchase price of $345 thousand is a primary reason Meadowlark Park is so popular.  Mature neighbourhoods offer a lot of built-in upside such as recreation facilities, lifestyle choices and family services.  The age demographic is almost equally split between young starter families, established families and

For a combination of picturesque beauty and lifestyle choices, Garneau is a neighbourhood that is truly hard to beat.  Named after the early settler Laurence Garneau, the neighbourhood was considered fully developed... in 1912 !  

  • A few things have changed in Garneau over the past hundred years or so.  With the growth of the U of A and Whyte Ave becoming a vibrant retail destination, the area is home to a young population. 80 percent of residents are under the age of 40. Recreation, Lifestyle and Safety services are all ranked very high on the Community Scores rating system.  Walk-ability is excellent and public transit services are readily available.

 

  • As you would expect, the housing mix over the years has shifted away from primarily

If you’ve lived in Edmonton for any length of time you’ve heard about the neighbourhood of Bonnie Doon. The name was taken from the Scottish for “Pleasant, rolling country side” way back in 1907. Edmonton and Strathcona were still fighting about who should get to annex it.

 

  • Early Bonnie Doon residents recognized right from the start what a beautiful part of the city they were in. They built the first houses next to Mill Creek Ravine overlooking the stunning Saskatchewan river valley. Of course, the neighbourhood has expanded south and east over the years, especially after world war two, with residential development typical of the time.

 

  • Today, Bonnie Doon has a variety of residential options for home buyers including single family

Edmonton is surrounded by a number of very nice smaller communities. In the past, living in Fort Saskatchewan or Spruce Grove meant driving into the city for almost all your shopping or recreational needs.

 

Well, things have changed quite dramatically for these “smaller” communities. One of the best examples of this transformation can be seen in Spruce Grove.

 

  • Spruce Grove’s newer neighbourhood of Harvest Ridge just might be the ultimate combination of beauty, comfort and functionality. There are baseball & soccer fields, playgrounds, walking trails and access to the amazing Atim Creek natural area all located within neighbourhood. And it’s a short walk to facilities like the Tri-Leisure centre, Fuhr Sports Park and the fantastic new
