Westridge: Surrounded by Greenery and Good Neighbours
Westridge takes the city-style convenience that Edmonton is famous for and transforms it into something new. Unlike some boroughs that are beset with residential neighbours, commercial centres and thoroughfares on all sides, this region is a thin slice of land between two forested ravines. These natural surroundings mean that peaceful accommodations, friendly interactions and eco-friendly landscaping are par for the course.
Feel Remote Without Being Far Away
Amazingly, residents of Westridge needn't trade convenience for their location. The West Edmonton Mall is minutes to the north, the downtown centre is a short trip away, and country clubs and other entertaining venues are all around. Whether locals want to study at the University of Alberta, get immersed in the past at Fort Edmonton Park or picnic with friends by the river, they can do it all with relative ease.
One of the best aspects of living in Westridge is that the community is consistently close-knit and welcoming. Perched on a geographical highpoint that affords ready access to lovely overlooks, this region enjoys a sense of physical isolation that doesn't feel lonely. Instead, the people here rely on a decades-old community league to help them connect with their neighbours and new services that make the daily experience all the more attractive.
Westridge homes were mostly built during the 1970s and 1980s. Expect a mix of architectural styles with classic European and American aesthetics. Also look out for abundant luxury features, like large, multi-car garages, cupola roofs, fenced yards and nearby connections to woodsy paths.
Chris helped me find and buy my first house last May and he is definitely top notch at what he does. We looked at 28 houses before I pulled the trigger on a place and not once before that was I pressured into making a decision I wasn't absolutely sure of. He was able to give me loads of his time to make my house shopping as easy as possible. I absolutely recommend him and have recommended him to a couple of friends already.
