Strathcona Houses For Sale - Edmonton, AB
The Strathcona community can be found at the very north east edge of the University of Alberta area, and is one of the larger and more spread out areas of the region. This section includes residential space, as well as commercial, industrial, and preserve lands. The entire neighborhood of Strathcona occupies close to three square kilometers, and is bounded by the Saskatchewan River to the north.
Homes for sale in Strathcona include single family dwellings and town homes, but also features the greatest collection of remodelled historical homes for the area. Many of these structures were initially erected during some of the first development to the region from the early to mid 1900’s. This offers Stratchona an older village feel, which is reinforced through wooded lots and natural landscaping on private and public lands.
Pedestrian access throughout Strathcona is fairly good, as much of the street plan had its initial design around foot and rail travel. Although the nearest LRT stops are University Station and Health Sciences Centre to the west, bus routes run along many of the old trolley lines and afford public transportation to residents.
Stratchona also has several schools across the community. These include Old Scona Academic High School, the King Edward School, and the Academy at King Edward.
Residents in Strathcona will find a variety of recreational pursuits. This can include shops and dining along Gateway Boulevard, or historical destinations such as the C & E Railway Museum.
