When changing addresses, one shouldn’t overlook the importance of a fine view from a balcony or a back yard that can be enjoyed every day. The good news is, Edmonton boasts quite diverse scenery, and so numerous gorgeous panoramas can be found in various parts of the city. If you’re interested in admiring the city skyline, choose to move to a block of flats near the heart of the city. On the other hand, if your heart desires a more serene landscape filled with lots of greenery and trees, you might want to relocate to the suburbs. To help you out, we’ve chosen a few examples to illustrate the best of both worlds.
Check out three homes for sale in Edmonton with different price ranges and boasting a variety of different views:
#1 11329 103 Street, Edmonton, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, $370,000
The first property is the most budget-friendly in the bunch. Although it might be considered to be part of suburbia, being in the Spruce Avenue real estate market, the listing in fact lies only a few blocks north of the city’s downtown core.
You might not expect any kind of view from such a low-priced property, but this 3-bedroom home is here to prove you wrong. On its main entrance side it overlooks a quiet and very pleasant-looking street dotted with mature trees. At the back, the lawn has been well-tended by its previous owners, and a nice job has been done to provide the property with flower beds, some small but well-chosen trees, a delightful pond, and lots of places to sit and enjoy the sunshine. And if that wasn’t enough, there is yet more greenery to look at beyond the garden.
#2 8724 208 Street NW, Edmonton, 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, $680,000
Second up we have a custom-built, two-level home at the western edge of the city. It is a nice example of Greens real estate, and is in a prestigious area, located close to parks, golf courses and shopping malls.
The impeccable and welcoming 2-bedroom home comes with a cozy, but beautifully-landscaped private back yard. It features not only tall, mature trees which provide shade, but also a few flowering shrubs and additional pots of colourful plants as well. There is both a balcony and a large patio from which all this can be enjoyed. And let’s not forget about the fact that the property backs onto the esteemed Lewis Estates Golf Course, which provides additional meticulously-maintained greenery as far as the eye can see.
#3 11969 Jasper Avenue, Edmonton, 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, $1,295,000
We’ve saved the most expensive unit for last. This 2-bedroom apartment can be found in the Pearl Tower, one of Edmonton’s finest development complexes. The glass construction is part of the Oliver real estate market, and boasts the best of what the city centre has to offer just a short distance away in Downtown.
As this is a luxurious penthouse on the 23rd floor, you can be sure that you’ll never get bored of the views here. The walls of windows throughout the entire condo unit ensure a constant, unobstructed picture of not only the heart of the city, but of the majestic North Saskatchewan River as well. Every room offers a fresh perspective of a different part of Edmonton. And if all this wasn’t enough, the three balconies which come with the unit provide your very own slice of the outdoors from where you can enjoy the panoramas over Canada’s Festival City.
We believe that a good view does not go unnoticed. It not only adds value to a property, but also brings a bit of enjoyment to its owner, who gets to admire it every day.
