Windermere Houses For Sale - Edmonton, AB
Windermere is an upscale larger and more spread out residential community situated to the west in the greater Windermere area. It is bordered by the North Saskatchewan River to the west and by Anthony Henday Drive in the north and the east, covering close to sixteen square kilometers. Parts of this community saw early residency in the mid 1900’s but the current development plan was actually instituted in early 2000, when much of the modern construction began.
Windermere has a combination of open street plan and grid work lay out, but the present design utilizes a number of cul-de-sacs and loops to create a more suburban feel. Homes for sale in this area include a balance of executive style single family dwellings, townhouses, and large duplexes (many with walkout basements) where lot sizes for both private and common land are fairly large. The area also utilizes natural features such as lakes and creeks to enhance the scenic impact of the landscape. A number of pedestrian trails and cycling paths are also being marked to generate a road free access for residents across the neighborhood.
Two golf courses make this sub-division highly attractive to many residents. The River Ridge Golf and Country Club is located to the north along the river, and the Windermere Golf and Country Club occupies a large section to the south. Residents can enjoy outdoor activities at either of these locations and also take advantage of the clubhouse and fitness facilities.
Parents will find that nearby schools offer good educational institutions for children of all ages. The Lillian Osborne High School and the Archbishop Joseph MacNeill Catholic School are both good choices.
