Rosslyn Houses For Sale - Edmonton, AB
Although the Rosslyn community was incorporated into Edmonton in the early 1900’s, the land was mostly open tracts and undeveloped space until around the middle of the century. The discovery of oil to the south and the demand for greater coal mining also drove the rail lines to expand and generate further employment. Rosslyn was eventually built up and zoned, and this established community includes living space as well as commercial and industrial land.
Rosslyn is situated on the east side of the Northwest Edmonton suburb, and it is bounded by 97th Street to the east and 137th Avenue to the north. Homes for sale in Rosslyn include single family structures and some townhouses. The modified grid pattern for the street design uses much curvature in order to incorporate park lands and natural wooded features to offer homes greater seclusion. This makes for a pleasant suburban environment that also promotes community culture.
Rosslyn is very family friendly, and has provisions to make it an ideal place for raising children. Educational facilities give parents options for teaching and some of the institutions include Rosslyn School and Rosecrest School.
