The Capilano neighbourhood sits in Southeast Edmonton. It is a mature neighbourhood in a great area for people who are ready to be a part of a relaxed, established area of Edmonton. Many of the homes were built in the 1960s, and along with the tall trees and leisurely parks, they provide a lasting feeling of “home-sweet-home”.

The neighbourhood has a wide range of ages, with over half of the population over 50 years of age.

Woodcroft is a neighbourhood on the rise. Houses are becoming harder to come by, as the secret is out: Woodcroft’s location is excellent and prices are still reasonable. If you’re considering a move to a mature neighbourhood in northwest Edmonton, Woodcroft might be just the place.

Brintnell is bounded on the west by 50 Street, Manning Drive to the east, 167 Avenue to the north and 153 Avenue to the south. Part of Brintnell’s uniqueness stems from almost all (97%) of its units are owner-occupied; not entirely surprising when 94% of units are single family homes. There are no schools directly in Brintnell, but, Dr. Donald Massey Elementary-Junior High School lies in neighbouring Hollick-Kenyon; a short trip from Brintnell.

Sitting adjacent to northwest Edmonton, St. Albert remains a city of its own despite being so close to Edmonton proper. St. Albert certainly has its own character, with its own river valley, old downtown area, one of the best farmer’s markets in the region, and plenty of community amenities.

With executive homes in its central area and eastern edge, the high end market is certainly covered here. But, that doesn’t mean you need to be a millionaire to live in St. Albert. Being a relatively large city, there are options to suit almost any taste and price range, from new developments and condos to larger lots in mature areas. And it’s all great. In fact, St. Albert was named the best city to live in in Alberta and the 7th best in Canada by MoneySense in
