Calgary’s Best Neighbourhoods: Dalhousie

Every year, Avenue Calgary releases its list of the top neighbourhoods in Calgary; this year, Dalhousie sits at number seven. This community is nestled at the corner of Crowchild Trail and Shaganappi Trail in the northwest. Just minutes from Nose Hill Park and the University of Calgary, Dalhousie is a great middle-ground for families and students. Here are a few statistics that helped Dalhousie rank so well on this year’s list:

  • A population of 8,885 means there are 2,692 people per square kilometre.
  • An average home value of $440,000.
  • 5 per cent of people walk or bike to work.
  • 11 restaurant access points.
  • 59 public recreation access points.
  • 37 park and green space points.
  • A walk score of 53.
  • A transit score of 55.

If this sounds like your kind of neighbourhood, here are a few homes that you can’t miss out on:

  • This single-family home backs onto a walking path which gives you extra privacy when entertaining family and friends. The gorgeous terraced yard has a fire pit, a shed and plenty of room for a garden. Inside you will find an amazing wood-burning fireplace in the living room, a newly renovated kitchen and plenty of natural light.
  • This bungalow with plenty of character on the outside will leave you speechless when you walk in the front door. Newly renovated from the top to bottom, this modern home has six bedrooms and three bathrooms. It also has a separate entrance to the basement where you could decide to have a rental suite.
  • An investors’ dream, this 1,275 square foot bungalow is a can’t-miss opportunity for anyone looking to flip a house or snag an ideal location for their dream home. With three bedrooms and three bathrooms, this home really shines outside with an absolutely stunning backyard, mature trees and a large parking pad. The front yard also has a long driveway and a garage, so you’ll have plenty of room for your camper and vehicles.
  • If you’re looking for an apartment, Dalhousie has plenty to offer. Like this one-bedroom, one-bathroom renovated corner unit. Located on the third floor of the building and full of floor to ceiling windows with a spacious master bedroom, this unit overlooks a lovely courtyard to boost an exquisite view.

We’re sure you’re starting to see why Dalhousie landed where it did on Avenue Calgary’s list. With easy access to shopping, the LRT and the University, this quiet, mature neighbourhood is a location that you won’t want to miss out on. It has absolutely everything you’ll need, plus easy access to downtown and Banff National Park, let alone the mountains and major roadways. So, if you’re looking for a place to settle down and enjoy where you live, head over to Dalhousie and see for yourself what makes it such a special community.
