Unveiling 3 Streets That Stand as Edmonton’s Rarest Gems

Welcome to Edmonton, the land of the prairies, where homes with a view are the rarest of gems. Where properties boasting substantial vistas rarely come for sale, and those that do are often sold privately or stay in the family for generations.

In this blog post, we’re shining a spotlight on three distinguished streets – Valleyview Drive in Parkview, Riverside Drive in Crestwood, and Grandview Drive in Grandview Heights – each offering an unrivalled combination of panoramic views and high-end value.

These streets are not just avenues adorned with luxurious homes; they are sanctuaries of limited availability, where the scarcity of properties magnifies their desirability.

For the residents of Brookside, their neighbourhood checks all the right boxes and then some.

On a prominent street, in one of Edmonton’s most sought after west-end neighbourhoods, is a funky little house right out of the 60’s. The home would be perfect to film an episode of Mad Men or even That 70’s Show. But while retro may be interesting, it’s not so easy to sell in today’s market. So what does one do?

It begs the question – what’s more valuable? The home or the lot? When you’re talking about an area of the city like Crestwood, Parkview or even the desirable Valleyview Drive, with its incredible view of the city’s downtown skyline overlooking the North Saskatchewan River valley, having a home from an older time period sitting on land like that – makes a demolition worth it. The land value alone coupled with the exclusivity and…
