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.
Limited Homes, Unlimited Value
With land value upwards of $1 million on Grandview Drive and well above $2 million on Riverside and Valleyview Drive, it’s no secret that a home in these areas comes with a hefty price tag. But is it worth it? We say, undoubtedly, yes.
What makes these streets exceptional is not just the luxurious homes they boast, but the rarity of finding properties on the market. The limited number of homes available underscores their exclusivity, making them a sought-after commodity in Edmonton’s real estate market.
The high land value, premium build quality, and intrinsic value derived from the breathtaking city views make these properties an investment of a lifetime.
And in the heart of Edmonton, where the river valley and city skyline form the perfect view, these three notable streets beckon to the privileged few who seek not just a home but a lifestyle.
Riverside Drive: The Crestwood Charisma
Riverside Drive in Crestwood is surrounded by nature with MacKinnon Ravine Park to the north, Mackenzie Ravine to the south, and a network of trails backing the North Saskatchewan River to the east. Ideal for those looking for the perfect blend of urban amenities and nature’s serenity, this west-end street is a haven worth exploring.
Numerous parks and the Edmonton holiday staple, Candy Cane Lane, are just a short stroll away while amenities like the Crestwood Community League offer tennis courts, a playground, and outdoor rink to keep families entertained all year round.
Valleyview Drive: Natural Beauty Meets Urban Sophistication
Just south of Crestwood you’ll find Parkview offering the same premium natural amenities with mature trees and wooden walkways and views ranging from the city’s skyscrapers to the beautiful Hawrelak Park.
Valleyview Drive in Parkview stands out as a haven in Edmonton’s west-end, showcasing diversity through a mix of mature and infill home styles. Larger lots provide not just space, but also a sense of individuality.
Places like the Parkview Community League foster a close-knit atmosphere, with residents ranging from local business owners to medical and dental industry professionals.
Grandview Drive: Recreation Options Abound
Cross the river to Grandview Heights, where Grandview Drive beckons those seeking tranquillity and recreation. Minimal vehicle traffic and a network of trails create the perfect spot for walking and biking. The Grandview Heights Stairs connect residents to Whitemud Park while a community skating rink and outdoor gym equipment offer both winter and summer recreation.
The Saville Community Sports Centre, proximity to an off-leash dog park, and easy access to the Whitemud via Fox Drive further enhance the desirability of the area.
The city views are no less desirable from this vantage point, with north-facing vistas providing tree-lined views that provide a serene escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
