Windermere is one of the more prestigious and fastest growing area of Edmonton. Homes values in the Windermere area can vary widely with an average selling price of $435,000 to multi-million dollar luxury and executive homes in Upper Windermere area.
The lively and evolving retail plaza in Windermere (The Currents) brings city living right to your doorstep while still offering the luxuries of suburban living.
The average household family income in the Windermere area is a robust $117,000 per year. We are anticipating the average family income to continue to grow as more and more homes are being built in the higher price ranges.
Development in the Windermere area started as early as the 1960’s with about 80 estate homes along the river valley and remained that way until about 2006 when the city council accepted The Neighbourhood Structure Plan (NSP) for Windermere Estates, after the Area Structure Plan (ASP) for Windermere was adopted by Council in 2004.
Prior to urban development, the Windermere Area was predominantly agricultural and including approximately 80 country residential land use along the river. The plan for the Windermere Estates neighbourhood was prepared to accommodate a range of housing types, densities, and designs while creating appropriate transitions between newer and older areas of the community. The vision outlined in the plan is to create an attractive, walkable, and sustainable suburban community that takes advantage of natural amenities, such as the river valley, while protecting environmental assets.
Once complete, the neighbourhood will include a mixed-use commercial centre designed as a neighbourhood focal point, as well as a series of parks, pathways, and institutional facilities, which will be integrated strategically with residential development.
The name for this neighbourhood is speculated to have come from a town of the same name located in Cumbria, England. The name Windermere was likely formed from the words “winder,” which means “to take one’s breath away,” and “mere,” which refers to the boundary of an area or a significant landmark. Edmonton’s Windermere Estates features large estate homes on gracious lots that overlook the river valley, the city’s most significant natural asset, and evokes these characteristics through the name.
