Quiet, ravine-side living in Edmonton’s central northwest! Grovenor is a highly coveted older neighbourhood first settled in the early 1900s. Thanks to its established status, Grovenor is ripe with charm, full of mature trees, walkable amenities and, of course, scenic ravine views.
While Grovenor is home to a few duplex, townhome and low-rise apartment options, the area is more commonly known for its variety of affordable, single-family homes – which account for the majority of real estate in the area. Even better, home buyers have their pick of older, fully upgraded character homes, modern new infill properties and everything in between (with infill properties steadily on the rise since the 1960s).
