Search homes for sale in Calgary Northeast by neighborhood.
The city's Northeast is a collection of vibrant communities, both new and old, that are bordered by Deerfoot Trail on the west side, Stoney Trail on the north and east side and the neighbourhoods of Marlborough, Abbeydale and Mayland on the south side. The Northeast used to contain more communities, but many of the southern neighbourhoods were absorbed into East Calgary.
Northeast Calgary is one of the more affordable districts in the city. Whether you are looking for a condo with a view of downtown or a single-family detached house in a quiet community, it can be found in the Northeast. The neighbourhoods are a mixture of older communities in the centre, lakeside communities to the east and new developments at the northern edge. This provides buyers with a selection of home types, from modern construction with open floor plans to more traditional and established homes.
Many residents make the choice to sell their condo or starter home to upgrade to a larger, more expensive place with a water view. Unfortunately, many of them believe they need to leave the Northeast to achieve this, which couldn't be further from the truth. Taradale and Coral Springs are known for their luxurious houses that offer the best of lakeside living at a fraction of the price of more prestigious neighbourhoods in Calgary. The detached houses in these areas were designed to provide views of the water to as many homes as possible, making the dream of stepping outside to spend the morning overlooking a peaceful lake a reality.
One of the major benefits to the northern districts is the expansion of the city. As Calgary continues to grow, new communities are developed and planned from the ground up before construction. Areas like Redstone that are built around Stoney Trail provide buyers the opportunity to get in to new neighbourhoods while they are still affordable. Pre-planned communities make it simple for new couples and young families to see exactly what the area around them will look like before they buy, allowing them to invest not just in a home, but in their future as well.
The Calgary International Airport and the industries that surround it make up a decent portion of the Northeast. There are many communities, like Martindale, Castleridge and Horizon, which are settled around this area that have become popular choices for the many people who work here and are looking for a residential neighbourhood to come home to. Anybody who flies a lot or is employed at the airport or in the industrial district may want to consider looking for a home in Northeast Calgary.
The Northeast is not just a cluster of residential communities. It is one of the major shopping districts in Calgary with several key shopping centres. Pacific Place Mall, Sunridge Mall, Deerfoot City, McKnight Village and Saddleridge Town Centre are all popular commercial areas in Northeast Calgary. With major retailers, small boutiques, local shops and restaurants all filling in these centres, there is an opportunity for everybody living in the Northeast to find great shops or spend a night out at a restaurant or bar within a short distance from their home.
While many of the communities in Northeast Calgary (especially the newer ones being developed to the north) are far removed from the downtown core, the public transit system throughout the city makes it a breeze to get from the house to the rest of Calgary. With the C-Train continuing to expand in the Northeast it shows the city's commitment to providing services as the district grows. The northern most LRT station used to be McKnight-Westwinds, but two more were constructed and now the line runs through Martindale to Saddletowne.
