Idylwylde Edmonton Homes For Sale | Real Estate Listings

First subdivided and named in 1914, Idylwylde is an Edmonton neighbourhood located in the Bonnie Doon area of the city, bounded on all four sides by major thoroughfares. Like other neighbourhoods in this part of the city, it was developed largely during the 1950s, and so its layout utilizes a modified grid pattern. This layout ensures that most interior streets see predominantly local traffic, and ensure that the neighbourhood remains fairly quiet.

Real estate in Idylwylde is made up largely of single-family homes, though several apartment buildings can be found along the boundaries of the neighbourhood. Residents have access to two schools, some commercial areas, a pair of parks, and several religious assemblies. Idylwylde is within easy access of the popular Mill Creek Ravine, located just west past the adjacent neighbourhood of Bonnie Doon. Keep Reading about the Idylwylde Community

Well over half the community, as of the most recent municipal census, report living in the neighbourhood at the same address for five years or more, making Idylwydle a mature, stable, and close-knit community.

Among Idylwylde real estate listings, you will find that a little more than half of the neighbourhood’s residences were built between 1940 and 1960, with around 25% built between 1960 and 1980. There is a little relatively recent construction in Idylwylde dating from the 90s, accounting for a bit more than 10% of the community’s homes. By and large, if you are looking for a home for sale in Idylwylde, plan on seeing homes built in and around the 1950s.

In keeping with the era of its development, a little more than half the homes for sale in Idylwylde are single-family houses, but condominiums and apartments are definitely a part of Idylwylde living, making up nearly 40% of the remaining homes. Idylwylde includes two schools: Idylwylde Elementary School, and nearby Vimy Ridge Academy. However, Idylwylde Elementary is no longer in operation as an elementary school and is today operated by Edmonton Public Schools as an English as a Second Language educational facility.

The neighbourhood’s name is almost certainly derived from ‘idyll,’ a type of short poem which describes a simple, country life – and the origin of our word ‘idyllic.’
