Manufactured homes are rapidly becoming the go-to choice among Edmonton home buyers, and not just because they represent some of the most affordable homes for sale on the Edmonton market. Following their ultra-low-price tag, these models are highly sought after due to the unique community atmosphere they provide – an atmosphere you’ll be hard-pressed to find anywhere else.
Located in nearly every quadrant of the city, these one-of-a-kind neighbourhoods can be found throughout the capital region, each celebrated for its accessible location, distinct community features, and budget-friendly homes.
Evergreen in Northeast Edmonton
Evergreen is a mature manufactured home community nestled alongside a beautiful, naturally wooded ravine in Northeast Edmonton. First established in the early 1970s, this popular neighbourhood has grown to nearly 1,500 people across 640 well-kept manufactured homes. Located west of Meridian Street and north of 167th Ave, Evergreen sits within close proximity to the Anthony Henday, Manning Drive and some of the best amenities Northeast Edmonton has to offer.

Fantastic Home Features
Enjoy the luxuries of a traditional site-built single-family home without the price tag! From oversized backyards and private driveways to detached garages and outdoor entertainment spaces, Evergreen’s manufactured homes offer all the features Edmonton buyers have come to expect from a detached home (and then some). Some of these features may include:
Single and Double-Wide Options – Manufactured homes vary in size and square footage, much like a traditional detached home. Single-wide models are generally 18 feet or less in width and 90 feet or less in length and offer up to 1,200 square of living space. They are often a popular choice among first-time buyers, downsizers and/or couples without children.
On the other hand, double-wides typically measure around 20+ feet wide and 90 feet long. Aptly named, these larger models offer up to double the amount of square footage as a single-wide (over 2,000+ sq.feet) and are ideal for growing families.
Spacious Open Floor Plans – Open floor plans are a must among Edmonton home buyers – and for good reason. Shared common living spaces that encompass both the living/dining room and kitchen don’t just serve to make a space look larger and brighter, they’re also a must-have for entertaining.
Roomy Master Suites – Like open floor plans, master ensuites have become standard to most new or upgraded homes on the market – and manufactured homes are no exception. A private escape, many manufactured master suites offer generous walk-in closets, oversized soaker tubs featuring tile-surrounds, walk-in glass showers, ceramic flooring, his and hers dual vanities, ample cabinetry and much more.
Chef Inspired Kitchens – Peninsula islands and breakfast nooks, custom cabinetry, granite countertops, tile backsplashes and ultra-modern fixtures are but a few of many features available in modern and upgraded manufactured homes. The perfect gathering place for busy families, you may also look forward to a kitchen equipped with an eat-in island, plenty of storage and generous amounts of counter space.
Energy- Efficient Appliances and Systems – Part of what makes manufactured homes so affordable is their energy efficiency. Built under factory conditions, manufactured home builders must meet strict environmental building standards. These include testing for an ultra-resistant building envelope (aka superior protection from the elements) and the use of energy-saving features such as vinyl/triple pane windows, ENERGY STAR rated systems (i.e., furnace, AC, water heater), LED lighting, and more.
The result? Manufactured homeowners benefit from some serious savings on their monthly utility bills while simultaneously reducing their overall carbon footprint.
Vaulted Ceilings – Vaulted ceilings and skylights are also common among manufactured homes, allowing for a sense of added space and more natural light. Homeowners opting for a newer construction manufactured home may also benefit from nine-foot or cathedral ceilings.
Customization Options – Despite what you may have heard about modern manufactured homes, there is no “one-size-fits-all approach.” Just like any new single-family home purchase, today’s manufactured homes give you the freedom to customize your new home from top to bottom easily and affordably. From floorplans to features, you’ll be able to pick and choose the right layout, finishes and upgrades to suit your individual tastes now and for years to come.
Private Driveways and Detached Garages – Depending on size, many manufactured home lots can easily accommodate a driveway as well as a single or double-detached garage. In addition to providing private parking space for owners and their guests, the driveway and garage offer additional storage space and an added sense of security. Garages are also known to boost curb appeal and overall resale value.
Convenient Mudrooms – Front and side entry mudrooms provide added storage and organization options in many manufactured homes. Standard mudroom featured may include built-in storage benches and shelving, additional closet space, adjoining laundry area and more.
Oversized Yards – As we mentioned above, many manufactured home communities offer oversized lot options – ultimately allowing homeowners to put as much thought and care into their home’s exterior as they have the interior. For this reason, it’s common to see manufactured lots with covered custom decks and patios, storage sheds, children’s outdoor play spaces, fire pit areas, high-end landscaping features and more.
Note: Large lots are yet another feature that make manufactured homes such an attractive option to families with children and pets and homeowners who love to spend time outdoors.
Upgraded Finishes – Despite Evergreen’s established status, many homes within the park were constructed within the last several years or have been renovated to include the latest upgrades and finishes:
- Vinyl plank/laminate/hardwood flooring
- New siding
- Designer lighting
- Gas/electric fireplaces
