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.
