Ottewell

Idyllic charm

About Ottewell

Just a short drive from downtown Edmonton, Capilano, Bonnie Doon and Whyte Avenue, Ottewell offers locational advantage without sacrificing serenity. The neighbourhood is a true gem within a network of mature communities, punching above its weight class for those seeking a well-kept place to call home.

Ottewell is framed on the west by 75th Street, on the east by 50th Street, on the south by 90th Avenue, and on the north by 98th Avenue and Terrace Road, making it one of Edmonton’s largest residential neighbourhoods. The area has a higher-than-average number of residents over the age of 40, resulting in beautifully maintained homes, thoughtful renovations, Rockwellian curb appeal, and a peaceful vibe that’ll make you never want to leave.

Ottewell Homes for Sale

Ottewell is home to roughly 2,400 dwellings, most of which were built shortly after World War II. Bungalow lovers will be especially impressed with what’s on offer here. Single-family homes account for four out of five properties, while the remaining real estate is primarily low-rise apartment buildings and duplexes. Listings in this area often feature professional landscaping, recent renovations, finished basements, large rec rooms, spacious yards, stone fireplaces, and detached garages with back-alley access. Typical listings in Ottewell run between $385,000 and $448,000, though attractive opportunities exist above and below that threshold.

Ottewell Lifestyle

Ottewell is widely desired for its tranquility and friendliness – a place where neighbours genuinely look out for one another and enjoy lending a hand. In fact, Avenue magazine once compared Ottewell to the set of Leave it to Beaver! Accordingly, community events like Movie Night in the Park are a fixture, while the Ottewell Community League hosts hockey and soccer games, fitness classes, preschool gatherings, seniors’ high tea and more.

Young families will appreciate Ottewell’s outstanding school access, which includes The Waldorf Independent School of Edmonton, Ottewell School, St. Brendan Catholic School, Braemar School, Clara Tyner School, Gabriela Mistral Latin American School, and Austin O’Brien Catholic High School. The area’s churches are similarly diverse, with such places of worship as Mosaic House Church, Al-Hadi Mosque, Braemar Baptist, St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Church, Ottewell United, and the Salvation Army Edmonton Temple.

Shopping and entertainment opportunities in Ottewell abound, making the area practically self-contained. Capilano Mall is nestled in the northeast corner of the neighbourhood, providing residents with a Safeway, Walmart Supercentre and other every-day staples; Ottewell Plaza strip mall features a community grocer, animal clinic, bank, drugstore, dental clinic, medical clinic, optometrist and more; and the recently built Capilano Library, a hair north of Ottewell’s boundaries, lays claim to 11,000 feet of learning space, all bordering the Fulton Ravine (be sure to check out their 3D printer!).
