  • Nicest Houses in Edmonton and area

    My apologies if this has ever been posted before but aside from Daryl Katz's house and Bruce Saville's house, where would you say are some of the nicest houses in Edmonton?

    St George's Crescent has a ton of nice houses as well, as well as Ravine Drive.

    I remember reading once that a casino owner had a gigantic house along Highway 14. Any one know anything about that house?

    Giant and nice aren't necessarily the same thing.

    Ada Boulevard and Highlands in general south of 111 ave have some great renovated houses - as does Windsor Park.

        I bet there's a ton of penthouses at the top of some of the older buildings downtown that have hidden gems in them that few people would ever know exist.

          I've always liked the Westbrook area. That's where Saville's house is. Old riverbend has some nice pads as well. Lansdowne, grandview, aspen gardens.

              That street in Windermere above the golf course is pretty impressive. Not my thing (lack of sidewalks, etc.), but amazing houses nonetheless.

                  Yes, the guy who used to own Argyll and Yellowhead casinos (plus some others in lethbridge i think) build a monstrosity off Hwy 14 just past the henday. It's an exact duplicate of a house he build in San diego. He passed away last year I think.

                    Ada Blvd between 50 st and 76 st in Highlands has some beautiful homes. The Highlands is full of many beautiful older and brand new homes.

                      There is a row of about 4 or so really unique houses down in Riverdale area. These were apparently all custom builds and if so you can tell.
                      LRT is our future, time to push forward.

                        Glenora, and old Glenora have beautiful houses.
                        Edmonton first, everything else second.

                          I like many of the homes in the older neighbourhoods north of Whyte. Not large homes but nicely to scale with their lots. A monster house on a regular lot looks like a poor design to me.

                          In other areas along the river, like Grandview, the custom designed homes of the 1960s are often nice.

                              There's a nice house facing the ravine just west of the 119 Street and 23rd Avenue intersection. Also the Mel Hurtig log cabin that's mostly hidden from view, but overlooks the river valley. It's located a bit east of LeMarchand Mansion. And don't forget the former Pocklington house near the museum. And then there's "Soaring", the 23 million dollar house that was donated to the U of A.
