Homes for Sale in Edmonton
AUDREY ABUAN - RE/MAX Real Estate REALTOR®
Homes for sale in North Glenora Edmonton are bounded by 111 Street to the north, 107 Street to the south, Groat Road to the east, and 142 Street to the west near the Westmount district. North Glenora sits on land that was originally part of River Lot 2, a 1,000 acre estate owned by Malcolm Groat in 1870. This land was sold in 1906 to Montreal realtor James Carruthers. Although many of the older west end communities that sit within the historic River Lot 2 Groat Estate, Westmount, and Glenora were actively being developed from the turn of the century, it was not until the post-World War II economic boom that North Glenora began real estate developing.
North Glenora was one of Edmonton's first comprehensively planned communities. North Glenora was re-subdivided and planned using the new street pattern. It proved so effective at deterring traffic short-cutting that Dant once got lost in North Glenora while trying to find his way through the newly developing community. With a total area of approximately 87 hectares, North Glenora is one of the smaller residential neighbourhoods in the city.
Housing construction in North Glenora occurred almost exclusively in the 1950s. The first building project was a recreation complex, which was built in 1953. Most of the public facilities and condominiums in North Glenora are centrally located, surrounded by stand alone houses.
