The benefits of choosing an infill property are almost too many to list. Choosing a mature neighbourhood can mean creating more time and space for what really matters - LIFE. Mature neighbourhoods in the heart of a city mean less travel time with short commutes to a downtown office, quick walk to schools, coffee shops and nightlife with plenty of easy transit options if you want to park the car and go! They come with beautiful tree lined boulevards or are poised on the edge of Edmonton’s river valley jewel. It’s a home that comes with life built in!
This home, right between Scona Road and the North Saskatchewan, is a pristine example of how successful infill development has been and why it’s picking up steam in Edmonton’s core neighbourhoods.
This minimalist-style property is a thoughtfully designed modern dream home right in the heart of vibrant city life. With pops of natural wood throughout, it has a light airy feel and refreshing aesthetic that is truly one-of-a-kind.
“The idea when this home was designed by TriStad, was to bring a unique feature to Edmonton,” says Kerri-lyn. “It’s the underdrive garage, it’s the prime location and really the urban living that you see in other major cities like Toronto or Vancouver.”
Perched on top of four levels with more than 4,800 square feet of living space, you’ll enjoy an impeccable view from the rooftop patio where you can check out the Muttart Conservatory to one side and take in the stunning Fairmont Hotel MacDonald from the other.
“One of the best features in this property is the elevator,” says Kerri-lyn. “It services every floor in the house. It even goes right up to the rooftop patio making it perfect for entertaining.”
It’s easy to imagine getting home from work at the end of the day or even after a Saturday trip to the popular Downtown Farmers Market - bringing your gear and groceries up with ease. “You drive in and the elevator is right there, so you get in and it takes you up to the main floor where you can drop everything right in the kitchen,” says Kerri-lyn. The idea behind the design was to create a home that would work for the owner throughout any stage of life, whether they were an active professional hosting parties from the patio or a city-loving retiree bringing home their market haul on the weekends.
Built in 2016, this five bedroom, six bathroom home features floor to ceiling windows, allowing the light and beautiful river valley views to stream right in. Located just minutes from the heart of the city - this property is perfect for that professional couple working downtown, that’s looking for a simple and sophisticated lifestyle. “There’s isn’t a lot of maintenance that goes along with this property,” says Kerri-Lyn. “It’s great for an owner that enjoys to travel or is away often for work.”
Over the past ten years the number of building permits issued in mature neighbourhoods has nearly doubled, breathing new life back into these vital areas.
“We ourselves built a new home in Crestwood ten years ago,” says Kerri-lyn. “I believe wholeheartedly in the revitalisation of mature neighbourhoods. It brings a lot of focus back into the core. School enrollments might have been dropping in certain areas. There weren’t any coffee shops. Now if you look at areas like Ritchie, a whole new life has been brought back.”
Infill properties truly do come with all the life a city has to offer - right out your front door.
Whether it’s the stunning river valley views you’re after, or it’s the electric energy of city life calling your name, this contemporary dream home is simply a must-see if you’re looking to relocate to an urban oasis. If you’d like to view the full listing for 9610 99A Street please click here
