Ritchie Real Estate

Trendy with vibrant curb-appeal

Live in Ritchie

One of the trendiest addresses in Edmonton, Ritchie is as rich in character as it is in opportunity. The youthful neighbourhood has shot to the top of many buyers’ wish-lists in recent years thanks to its winning combination of ravine access, quirky retailers, proximity to Whyte Avenue nightlife, and easy commute to downtown.

Ritchie is framed on the north by Whyte Ave, on the south by 72 Ave, and on the east by Mill Creek Ravine. The community’s west boundary, south of 79 Avenue, runs along 100 Street; north of 79 Avenue, it runs along 101 Street and 102 Street.

If you’re looking for a highly walkable suburb with urban access and neighbours that look out for each other, Ritchie is the perfect community to call home.

Ritchie Homes for Sale

Since 2015, Ritchie’s transformation has been extraordinary, causing property value and curb-appeal alike to grow. There are roughly 2,500 dwellings in the tree-lined neighbourhood, with properties that include single family detached homes (picture an eclectic mix of wartime bungalows, modern skinny homes, and architecturally stunning infills), duplexes, apartments and condominiums.

Because of the area’s diversity, the options in newly gentrified Ritchie are as varied as buyers’ budgets. Listings can start as low as $350,000 and run as high as $975,000, while the average asking price is around $475,000. It’s no wonder the community continues to enthral millennials, young families, cultural influencers, and professionals alike.

Ritchie Lifestyle

Living in Ritchie means truly being a part of something. The people who live here take great pride in their neighbourhood, and it’s evident in everything from the lively community events (think Christmas concerts, clothing drives, and crafters’ markets) to the passionate support given to local businesses (a trait that draws an impressive collection of retailers).

Schools in Ritchie include École Joseph-Moreau, a francophone institution set to open in 2020; Escuela Mill Creek, a bilingual English-Spanish elementary school; and the Learning Store on Whyte, a small high school outreach program operated by Edmonton Public Schools.

In recent years, Ritchie has become a food-lover’s paradise, with mouth-watering options in every direction. As the Edmonton Journal put it: “Stand at the corner of 96 St. and 76 Ave., point a finger, and turn around until you get dizzy. Wherever you come to a halt is a step in the direction of delicious.” Marquee names include the Blue Chair Café, Food in the Nud bakery, Kind ice cream, Farrow sandwich shop, and the Ritchie Market, which is home to Blind Enthusiasm Brewing, award-winning Biera restaurant, Transcend Coffee, boutique butcher Acme Meat Market and, come fall 2019, Little Duchess, an outpost of the famed Duchess Bake Shop.

Finally, no celebration of Ritchie would be complete without giving a gold star to the neighbourhood’s location. Work downtown? You’re just minutes away, with a short drive down 99th Street. Want to enjoy the premier shopping and nightlife of Whyte Avenue? Walk, bike or drive, as the retail playground is Ritchie’s closest neighbour to the west. Love to be in nature? You’re just steps away from lush Mill Creek Ravine, where cycling trails, a swimming pool, and bicycle paths are beloved fixtures for the area’s lucky residents.
