Built to mimic a small town within a large city, Terwillegar Towne remains one of the most uniquely designed neighbourhoods in the capital region. Located directly east of the Anthony Henday, Terwillegar Towne is a newer community celebrated for its beautifully crafted homes, endless assortment of amenities and vibrant green spaces – all of which are tucked away within a quiet and comfortable setting.
Did you know? Terwillegar Towne takes its name from Dr. Norman L. Terwillegar, a local surgeon, pioneer and property owner.

In addition, these detached models can range from classically designed laned models, ideal for families just starting out, to lavish luxury properties offering 3,000+ square feet of living space (and everything in between).
Though single-family dwellings account for roughly 80% of all home styles within Terwillegar Towne, attached and semi-detached homes are also prevalent throughout. They include modern duplexes starting in the mid 300s, followed by a small number of attractive townhomes and apartment-style condos, typically priced between $200,000 to $270,000.
