Westbrook Estates is an affluent community located in scenic Southwest Edmonton. An outdoor lover’s (and avid golfer’s) delight, Westbrook Estates is defined by the Whitemud Creek Ravine to the north, west and south and encompasses an 18-hole championship golf course. Boasting a quiet atmosphere and close proximity to amenities, this mature neighbourhood was ultimately designed “to appeal to individuals and families in search of a quiet, high-quality residential environment with prestigious, architecturally designed homes on large lots.” (City of Edmonton)
If you’re in search of a beautiful home in a high-end, nature-friendly neighbourhood, Westbrook Estates is exactly what you’re looking for.
The land comprising Westbrook Estates was annexed by the City of Edmonton in 1960. Construction in the neighbourhood continued over the next 30 years, with emphasis on estate-style, single-family homes. Most detached residences were built during the 1960s, with a small percentage of low and high-density development occurring during the 70s, 80s and 90s.
Celebrated for its one-of-a-kind location, homeowners in the area enjoy panoramic golf course and ravine views (sometimes both!). As such, Westbrook Estates was designed to provide optimal access to these landscaped and natural features not just through street patterns and lot orientation, but through the neighbourhood’s many maintained trails and pathways.
Aptly named, “Westbrook” refers to Whitemud Creek, which bounds the community to the west, while “Estates” is an acknowledgement of the area’s large residential lots.
Price Range and Housing Stock
Sizeable single-family homes consisting of five bedrooms and five bathrooms account for over 70% of real estate opportunities in Westbrook Estates. With many properties in the area constructed during the 1960s, these homes are anything but “cookie cutter,” featuring one-of-a-kind architectural details and plenty of character. Despite their age, these residences have also been meticulously maintained and renovated to include high-end upgrades. In short, Westbrook Estates homes are in a class by themselves.
Coming in various layouts, sizes and styles, detached homes in the community consist of everything from sprawling bungalows and split-level homes to two-storey models equipped with over 4,000 square feet of luxury living space.
Low-rise apartments account for all remaining home styles in Westbrook Estates. Located in the neighbourhood’s east end, most condos are within a 5-minute walk of the Derrick Golf and Winter Club and the Westbrook Shopping Centre – making them an ideal choice for first-time buyers and downsizers alike. Two-bedroom, one-bathroom units typically start in the low 100s.
Due to Westbrook Estates’ exceptional ravine/golf course location, home prices tend to fall above the Edmonton average. Prices may start at around $550,000 for a 1,500 square-foot bungalow and range upwards of $3M for a two-storey attached home overlooking Whitemud Creek.
