Winner: Cliff Bungalow

Average Home Price: $424,089

Bordered by two BIAs — Fourth Street and 17th Ave — Cliff Bungalow residents have easy access to a bevy of bars, restaurants and boutiques, as well as proximity to the scenic stroll alongside the Elbow River. With its mature tree-lined blocks and numerous heritage homes and multifamily buildings, this neighbourhood still maintains a hidden-gem feel when you walk inward from the bustling edges.

Unique Feature: Street signs with previous non-numeric names reference the area’s former life as a French settlement.

What the judges said: “When I first moved to Calgary I lived in Cliff Bungalow and loved it. The community has done an excellent job of … maintaining the original architecture.” -Danielle Reneau-Hyrcenko
