Crestwood Real Estate

Ravine hideaway

What is it like to live in Crestwood?

Bound by lush green space on three sides, Crestwood is one of Edmonton’s most coveted addresses. The upscale community hugs the North Saskatchewan in the east, the McKinnon Ravine in the north, and the MacKenzie Ravine in the south, creating a jaw-dropping picture frame for lucky residents. You could be among them.

From Crestwood’s spectacular views to its positional advantage (the neighbourhood is close to downtown, West Edmonton Mall, Laurier Park, and the Edmonton Valley Zoo), there’s no better place to find your forever home.

Crestwood Homes for Sale

There are fewer than 1,000 properties in Crestwood, and nine out of 10 are single-family dwellings. Unsurprisingly, the vast majority of these are owner-occupied – a phenomenon that’s cultivated a vibrant sense of community. Nearly three-quarters of Crestwood homes were built between the end of World War II and 1960 (many of them revitalized), while newer properties are often luxury infills with triple-car garages, walk-in closets, wine cellars, chef’s kitchens, theatre rooms and other sought-after amenities.

The average listing price in Crestwood is north of $800,000, with some properties commanding as much as $2.4 million. Bungalows can occasionally be found in the high $300s, though most listings under $400,000 tend to be for vacant lots – the perfect canvas to bring your ravine-living dreams to life. And I can help you with that, too.

Crestwood Lifestyle

Living in Crestwood means looking no further than your backyard for the views most people need transportation to experience. The tree-lined boulevards, mature parks, secret toboggan spots, and low-traffic street patterns enshrine residents with a rare sense of seclusion, right in the heart of the city. Crestwood is also home to Candy Cane Lane, one of the Edmonton’s best-loved Christmas displays and a sparkling emblem of the community’s bright spirit.

Those with families enjoy excellent schools with strong academic programs, including Crestwood Elementary Junior High School and St. Paul Elementary School. The peaceful neighbourhood also has a high concentration of churches, a renowned curling club, a dedicated shopping centre, and a variety of upscale retail boutiques – the latter buoyed by the fact 34% of households earn upward of $100,000, compared to the city average of around 13%.

Foodies will appreciate Crestwood’s eclectic dining, which includes such neighbourhood gems as Rebel Food & Drink (killer weekend brunch), Delux Burger Bar (try the beet salad!), and Café Blackbird (a live music haven, set to the backdrop of a hip coffee and wine bar).

Notably, the Crestwood Community League is believed to be the oldest continuous community league in North America. It was founded in 1917 by residents and based on the concept of a neighbourhood social club. More than 100 years later, that same spirit of togetherness endures.
