Standing apart from the vast majority of new infill homes in the area, this home features
a steep pitched roof, dormers and a classic full-width veranda reflecting the historic character of the neighbourhood.
The floor plan mixes traditional and modern elements, and includes a
spectacular 3rd floor space perfect for your home business, studio, guest suite or whatever you may imagine.

Hardwood and heated porcelain tile floors, James Hardie plank exterior, granite kitchen counters and vanities,
professional grade appliances and finely crafted millwork throughout are just the beginning.
Ready for possession by July 31.
Queen Alexandra (Q.A.) is a historic neighbourhood nestled just south of the University of Alberta, Whyte Avenue (designated provincial heritage area) the North Saskatchewan River Valley (largest contiguous park system in North America) and downtown Edmonton. Q.A. is one of the best locations in the city to live a vibrant and convenient urban lifestyle in a mature neighbourhood with beautiful tree lined streets and recently renewed sidewalks, roads and lighting.
This house is only 1.4 km from the University of Alberta which is home to the internationally renowned U of A research hospital, the Mazankowski Heart Institute, and the new artificial intelligence and supercomputing hub. Several new medical centres and clinics are within a few blocks of this location.
As Alberta’s provincial capital, Edmonton is the centre of the legislative assembly (2.6 km). The vibrant downtown is home to a multitude of offices, the new ICE district and major cultural institutions (3.5 kilometres).
Your children can walk or bike safely to three schools within 250 m of this home. As residents, your children have registration priority in “designated” public schools such as Garneau (K-6), Allendale (gr. 7-9) and Strathcona Composite High School (gr. 10 - 12). Mt Pleasant is the top ranked Elementary school in Edmonton (1.5 km) and Allendale is a German immersion school (0.9 km). There are several separate schools nearby as well. For those seeking post secondary education, the University of Alberta’s main campus lies just west of Queen Alexandra and is home to over 40,000 students, 15,000 professors and staff members and is one of Canada’s top performing universities.
Queen Alexandra is at the heart of Edmonton’s south side and close to all amenities. The 106th street bike corridor is the first of its kind in Edmonton, constructed with enthusiastic input from our vibrant community league. Separated bike lanes safely and efficiently take you to the river valley, Whyte Ave, downtown, the U. of A., and the many schools in the area. Between LRT, public transit, new walkable sidewalks and bike lanes, cars are optional. However, this house features a double garage and plenty of parking on a large driveway accessible through the back lane. There is excellent access to all areas of the city as well as the Edmonton International Airport.
Cycle to the vast single track mountain bike and paved trail networks in the river valley on newly minted separated bike lanes. Enjoy one of the many parks within blocks, including a spray park and the Rollie Miles Recreation centre which currently has a running track and swimming pool, and is soon to have major redevelopment. (see the full plan here) Canoe the North Saskatchewan, golf at two courses and access the Kinsmen Recreation centre — all within a 3km radius. The possibilities are endless.
Edmonton is known as Festival City, and many of those happen within walking distance of your new home. The Fringe International Theatre Festival, the Whyte Avenue Artwalk, and Ice on Whyte are just a start. Live music venues are plentiful, including music institutions such as Blues on Whyte, the Yardbird suite and the Edmonton Folk Fest.
