North Glenora developed after WWII and was a very Modern Subdivision with its Crescent Aves & Streets. (Located Just South of the First Mall in Canada, Westmount.) It comprises mostly rock solidly built Bungalows, Semi-Bungalows & Two Storey homes, built mainly from the late 1940s into the 50s. If you like quality, you will know these homes: Hardwood Floors, Lath & Plaster walls, Fir Millwork, Glass Knob-sets, Coved Ceilings, you know, built to last. This may well be the most secure "era of construction" to purchase, in that, with a few upgrades to the electrical, plumbing & heating systems, these homes will last relatively trouble free for generations. North Glenora is delineated as follows: West of Groat Road between 107 & 111 Aves, East of 142 Street. The area is more sought after every year and more "Infill Homes" are being built than ever. Proximity to shopping, to schools, city center and the river valley (Capital City Recreation Park: the entire river valley) from North Glenora, has for years been a well-kept secret. Here is a little of that secret: North Glenora is just across the river via Groat Road from the University of Alberta. There is 1 Stop Sign and 1 Yield sign, between North Glenora and the Tory Building at the U of A going to the U. of A. there are only 2 traffic lights (both on the 107 Ave. Bridge) on the Return Trip.
North Glenora is also quick to N.A.I.T (The Northern Alberta Institute of Technology) and to the Downtown and West End Campuses of G.M.C.C. (Grant MacEwan Community College.) There are Public and Separate schools of all grades in and around North Glenora. It is walking distance to the River Valley Parks System (which includes Groat Ravine to the 107 Ave. bridge) and to all the Character Shopping along 124 Street and @124 Street & 101 Ave. such as High Street or Mountain Equipment Co-op--or some of the wonderful Restaurants, which are themselves located in grand old houses: The Manor Café, La Spiga. It is walking distance to shopping, dining establishments and the theaters at the recently renovated Westmount Center Mall. So if you are contemplating a move to/in Edmonton, give us a call. We love this special part of Our City.
