Belgravia Houses For Sale - Edmonton, AB
The Belgravia community marks one of the western borders of the greater University of Alberta area, and this larger neighborhood is situated just north of the south campus, on the banks of the Saskatchewan River. This area was greatly developed in the 1960’s and the extension of the LRT lines around 2008 has also led to some newer revitalization efforts.
Belgravia is still considered one of the older and more established residential sections, and is a very desirable living space due to its peace and seclusion.
Homes for sale in Belgravia are mainly single family dwellings, and some townhouses. These sit on well sized lots, and the use of forestry for landscaping adds to the rural feel of the neighborhood. A modified grid pattern uses a number of crescents to incorporate parks and preserve lands into the environment, and this makes the area very pedestrian friendly.
Bus stops are located along 76th Avenue and 116th Street in town, and also run along the border roads. The McKernan Belgravia Station LRT stop can be easily found on 114th Street and provides much of the commuter transportation for the region.
Parents will find the Belgravia School is centrally located on the park, and that this serves most of the community educational needs. Edmonton Public Schools are also an option for this area and the Whitemud Equine Academy offers extracurricular training for riders and show jumpers.
Many outdoor enthusiasts appreciate the Belgravia development, as it borders on Whitemud Park along the river. This land has a number of trails for hiking and cycling, and also has dog parks for pet owners.
