The community of Crestwood can be found in West Edmonton, tucked between two ravines and overlooking the North Saskatchewan River Valley. Bordered on the west by 149th Street, the 2,200 residents of Crestwood have immediate access to Edmonton’s multi-use trail system, including pathways through the McKinnon Ravine and along the River Valley. Views of the valley and the surrounding ravine system feature on all sides of this neighbourhood, making it one of the most picturesque places to live in the city. Because of its proximity to the River Valley, Crestwood’s streets depart from the usual grid structure of the rest of the city, and the community features a unique street structure.
Almost all of the homes here are single family detached homes, and while this community is close to Edmonton’s core and features large lots with mature, tree-lined boulevards, there has been a slow yet steady influx of high-end infill development in Crestwood over the years. Based on data from the last 90 days, the average list price of a home in Crestwood is $820,000 and the average size is almost 2,000 square feet. Currently, Plex Developments is constructing a beautiful 2,900 square foot infill property on 9734 – 143 Street in Crestwood.
Currently there are some amazing luxury properties available for sale in Crestwood, including this $949,900 bungalow located close to Summit Drive and the edge of MacKinnon Ravine Park. Exceptionally designed with a chef’s kitchen and vaulted ceilings, this 1,850 square foot bungalow is handsomely appointed with hardwood floors and granite counter tops.
149th Avenue provides residents with quick and easy access to main arterial roads including Stony Plain Road and Whitemud Drive, and the community’s close proximity to the Downtown core and West Edmonton’s employment centres makes it an ideal place for those who value shorter commutes. Crestwood is close to Mayfield Common and the Terra Losa shopping centre located along the west side of 170th Street. To the south west the Meadowlark Shopping Centre and West Edmonton Mall can be found, as can the Misericordia Community Hospital.
