Discover the Houses for Sale in Kensington
There are three primary kinds of homes for sale in Kensington: single-family detached homes, single-family bungalows, and bungalow condos for the local Shepard's Meadow retirement community.
At the high end of the Kensington real estate market, detached homes generally offer over 2,000 square feet of living space for under $600,000, with four bedrooms being the norm. These are wonderful suburban homes where you can raise your family, and take full advantage of the outdoor living space afforded by your sizable yard.
The most common type of home in Kensington, though, is the bungalow. With exterior designs dating back to the mid-20th century, these homes look comfortably retro, but their interiors will surprise you with up-to-date appliances, custom woodworking, and spacious open floor plans. Ideal as starter homes, Kensington bungalows often include a basement suite that you can rent out to decrease your monthly expenses. These bungalows cover a range of prices and amenities, from two bedrooms at $300,000 to four at $400,000, but one thing is consistent: large, backyard that are under an acre, often with decks and detached garages.
Lastly, some of the bungalows in Kensington are available as condos, sometimes at as low a price as $200,000, as part of the Shepherd's Meadows retirement community. These homes are perfect for making life easy, as low monthly condo fees take care of property maintenance for you. Retire to quiet Kensington and you'll have both community and comfort!

The area around Kensington is a masterfully planned community with an emphasis on loop-roads as opposed to through-roads to minimize traffic throughout the residential streets. These quiet streets don't block the way to the rest of Edmonton, though—major roadways surround Kensington on all four sides, providing convenient access to local amenities and neighbouring communities. The Yellowhead Highway and 97 Street provide a fast route anywhere in the city, and the North Town and Northgate shopping centres are just a few blocks away.
