York Houses For Sale - Edmonton, AB
York is one of the larger Northgate communities which is also developed for residential and commercial use. The area was largely developed in the 1960’s and revitalization projects over the ensuing decades have created a highly livable and self-contained community that is still in good proximity to the Edmonton city centre. Clareview Station LRT is less than a half a kilometer from the neighborhood boundaries, and bus stops across York offer more travel options.
Although many of the homes for sale in York are single family structures, this is one of the first communities on Edmonton to have town homes as a living choice. The structuring of the community accommodates the use of both private and shared lots and creates a culture of integration and suburban growth. Streets in this section include crescents and curved grid patterns as well as the employment of cul-de-sacs to maximize space. This makes the neighborhood easy to navigate and also increases its pedestrian friendliness with well manages sidewalks and a small network of connecting paths.
Families find York very attractive for the safe and inviting atmosphere along with the amenities that are close at hand. The York Elementary School is centrally located on the park, and the J.J. Bowlen School is another option for a range of ages.
The Manning Crossing Shopping Centre is located in the south east corner of York. This destination provides groceries through the Safeway, but also gives residents a destination for leisure. Local eateries like Smitty’s can present a casual dining experience, while the Redbox depot is an easy place to rent the latest DVDs for a family night in.
