Explore Dovercourt Homes For Sale
Most homes in Dovercourt date back to a postwar building boom, when new families flocked to the community looking for inexpensive real estate in an ideal location. It was developed under the direction of Noel Dant, Edmonton's first city planner, who envisioned it as a "neighbourhood unit" with limited access and a street pattern that were both designed to calm traffic and make the streets safer. In addition to the many community amenities nearby, Dovercourt homes for sale were made appealing to families by providing cozy, open layouts set far back on mature landscaping. Every choice made in designing these homes and the neighbourhood as a whole were inspired by family living.
Today, these bungalows are still much sought-after by buyers looking for classic pieces of Edmonton real estate. Though they typically offer less than 1,000 square feet, these homes feel larger than their footprint due to their careful use of space. Many of the best Dovercourt real estate has undergone multiple upgrades and customizations designed to accommodate the tastes of more modern buyers, though you'll also find tear-downs and fixer-uppers in the lower price ranges.
