Rutherford Homes For Sale - Edmonton, AB
The community of Rutherford is one of the larger in the greater Blackmud area and is positioned to the south of Ellerslie Road, with James Mowatt Trail as the eastern border, and 127th Street as the western border. This community has seen strong demand and much construction from 2006, and is well founded as a residential space with some commercial zoning.
Homes for sale in Rutherford are mainly single-family dwellings, although a mix of townhouses and duplexes are also dispersed across the section. These have well-sized lots, and the use of trees and natural landscaping creates peaceful borders and greater privacy for residents. The street plan for the neighborhood favors crescents and cul-de-sacs, while pedestrians and cyclist will appreciate the network of footpaths and trails that connect the area.
Parents in Rutherford will locate the Monsignor Fee Otterson School to the eastern side of the town, and this facility is able to accommodate a number of grade levels. Early childhood learning is also nearby at the Ellerslie Road Pre-school.
Bus stops are highly prevalent throughout the sub-division, and these lines allow commuters to get to the city centre with ease. While some local businesses are within the development and a small commercial area is situated to the northeast, many residents will use public transportation to get to nearby South Edmonton Commons or the Currents at Windermere for making purchases and enjoying dining or entertainment.
Rutherford Park has a number of walking and cycling trails for recreation, along with sports fields and playground equipment. The Whitemud Creek Golf and RV Resort to the west is also a popular destination for leisure activities.
