Brookside’s mature trees and scenic location alongside the Whitemud Creek Ravine and North Saskatchewan River Valley make it one of the most beautiful neighbourhoods in Edmonton. Peaceful and semi-secluded, Brookside is known for its luxury homes, ultra-large lots and laid-back atmosphere. Residents of this high-end community also enjoy having many of Southwest Edmonton’s best amenities within arm’s reach, including popular shops and services, schools and major arterial roads.

Brookside Community Profile, Price Range and Housing Stock
Brookside consists predominantly single-family homes, making up more than 80% of the available real estate options. Most of the residences in this area were constructed during the 1960s and 1970s, featuring detached houses ranging from luxurious executive-style estates to modernized bungalows. The most frequently found homes are four-bedroom, four-bathroom properties, often set on large lots with well-established trees. Property sizes can vary considerably, ranging from 1,200 to over 3,500 square feet.
Despite their age, most Brookside homes offer upscale amenities and updates. These include features such as triple-car garages, gourmet kitchens, exquisite ensuite bathrooms, and luxury outdoor entertainment spaces. It is common to find homes with stunning views of the surrounding ravine and beautifully landscaped walk-out lots. Due to Brookside’s exceptional ravine-side location, home prices tend to fall above the Edmonton average.
