Homes for Sale in Edmonton
AUDREY ABUAN - RE/MAX Real Estate REALTOR®
Most of the homes in Kildare Edmonton were built during the 1960s, but residential development continued well into the 1980s. Residential housing accounts for approximately 45 percent of Kildare's property area. The major structure type in Kildare is the single-detached house, although almost half of the total dwelling units are contained in row houses, collective residences, and low-rise apartments.
Kildare’s close proximity to 137 Avenue and 97 Street provides home owners with easy access to other parts of the city. Kildare has a greater mix of land uses than most mature suburban communities. Approximately 55 percent of Kildare’s real estate is commercial and institutional. This mix of land uses is largely due to the presence of St. Michael’s Cemetery and Londonderry Mall, which provides a wide range of retail businesses and services.. Both of these dominant features consume large, highly visible parcels of land. Kildare, Londonderry Mall, and several surrounding areas are named for Irish towns and counties.
Kildare is named after the town and county of Kildare, Ireland. A nunnery was founded there by St. Bridget (453-523), who changed the name from Druim Criaidh to Cill-dara, which means “church of the oak.” The anglicized version of Cill-dara became Kildare.
