Mount Royal is a prestigious luxury community located in the heart of the inner city. This area is historically known to be one of Canada’s best neighbourhoods as early as 1904. This area offers so much for buyers looking to be in an upscale area, but still close to the core. There are no attached or multi-family homes in the area located along 14th Street NW. This creates great appeal for families looking to be in an area that feels suburban but has all the conveniences of Calgary's core. Wide-lot executive style custom homes surrounded by mature trees are most commonly found in Upper Mount Royal. There are few options for new developments in Upper Mount Royal, but there are still some mid-century houses that are ready to be redeveloped. Attractions here are shared with its surrounding communities, which include Bankview, South Calgary, Elbow Park, Cliff Bungalow, Mission and Lower Mount Royal. Uptown 17th Ave SW is the main attraction, however, Marda Loop shopping district is located just up the road to the west. How great it is to have two of the city’s most popular shopping and entertainment districts only minutes away! To add to the appeal, the Elbow River, Casino and Repsol Sports Centre are all close by.
Mount Royal was formed nearly 100 years ago along with the Elbow Park as an enclave for American-born business elites. The area was first known as American Hill with just under 30% of residents being born in the USA. Today, the community is known as Mount Royal. The word “upper” comes from the fact that it lies upwards on a hill while it flattens out as you go further north to the more urbanized area of Lower Mount Royal.
Houses for sale in this Upper Mount Royal very rarely go for less than a million dollars. Many of the city’s most expensive properties for sale can be found in this community which is still known as one of the country’s wealthiest and most affluent.
