Search homes for sale in Calgary North by neighborhood.
The district of North Calgary is comprised of communities that used to be part of Northwest Calgary. Starting at the north of City Centre, this section of communities is shaped like an hourglass, sandwiched between Nose Hill Park and the Calgary International Airport in the south and spouting open into a variety of neighbourhoods to the north. The area is made up of many older communities and has a mixture of new developments and older single-family detached houses.
There is a certain charm to living isolated from the rest of the city while still being able to get there quickly and the single-family detached houses in these communities are the perfect place to raise a family. The neighbourhoods are quieter than the densely-packed communities in City Centre with less traffic on the streets and more yard space for each house. There is something special about being able to drive home from work and come home to a neighbourhood that feels like its own town. As Calgary continues to expand to make room for the many people moving in each year, there will be more developments being built and more opportunities to buy a new house.
One of the many benefits of searching for a home in North Calgary as opposed to more dense areas is the affordability of the houses you can find. Many of the homes in the core communities of North Calgary were constructed in the 1960s with more recent construction happening in the new developments that continue the expansion of the city. These houses are perfect for any couple that has been thinking about upgrading from their current condo to a place where they can start a family.
While some people want a larger home for their family, others prefer the low hassle lifestyle that can only be found with a condo. Knowing that all the upkeep on the property will be handled consistently allows owners the time to spend on more important things. They will never have to worry about mowing the lawn or fixing the roof or the costs associated with home repair and maintenance. However, there is a happy ground in between condos and houses and North Calgary has many of them: townhouses. Attached housing has become increasingly popular because of the lower prices for the same square footage, having the same level of privacy as a detached house but with the same level of security that condo owners have.
Residents of North Calgary will never need to worry about finding a place to go for a hike. Nose Hill Park is one of the largest parks in North America and borders the majority of the community on its east side. This massive body of land has over 300 km of trails to be enjoyed by the many hikers who visit it daily to get some exercise and fresh air. Direct access to one of the city's most popular attractions is not something to be taken lightly as this park provides more than just a wonderful view to the houses that surround it. North Calgary is also home to the Nose Creek Parkway and the Country Hills Golf Course, two additional areas open to the public that allow for a way to spend some recreational time in the outdoors.
North Calgary has many schools that cover all age ranges in both the standard and Catholic curriculums with one of the city's largest secondary schools, Notre Dame High School, providing education to North Calgary students near one of the community's largest shopping districts: Country Hills. This area has major retailers like The Real Canadian Superstore, Canadian Tire, Home Depot and Staples next to a variety of restaurants and a Landmark Cinema. A selection of boutique shops and ethnic restaurants fit in nicely with larger chains like Ricky's All Day Grill and Swiss Chalet. The area provides shopping and entertainment to the neighbourhoods that are in the northern most part of North Calgary, proving that you do not have to venture into Downtown to spend a night out.
