Ekota Homes for Sale
In the language of the Cree people, Ekota means "the place to be." As one of the more popular neighborhoods in the Mill Creek area of Edmonton, the community of Ekota is a family-friendly community that has housed Edmonton families since the first houses were developed in the mid-1970s. Ekota homes for sale mostly consist of single-family bungalows with a smaller selection of low-rise apartments and townhomes. Central to this tight knit community are the two area schools and the neighborhood community centre that offers a playground, sports fields, and an outdoor skating rink perfect for winter time fun and fitness.

About Ekota Homes For Sale
Ekota is one of the 26 suburban neighbourhoods that make up Mill Woods and one of the most ethnically diverse communities in the area. Ekota homes for sale are primarily detached family homes, duplexes, and rowhouses designed to accommodate families of all sizes. Among the largest of these homes, you'll find nearly 2000 square feet of space for you and yours, though its more common to find homes offering more modest floorplans of between 1,000 and 1,200 square feet. Unlike newer developments, the homes of Ekota range over a variety of design styles, with stucco or brick exteriors giving many of them a lot of charm.
Ekota real estate also offers a number of exiting features and finishes that make them attractive to homebuyers, including hardwood floors, brick fireplaces, fully finished basements, and open concept kitchens. Though most homes in the area date back to the 1970s, you'll discover that homeowners have gone to great lengths to update them with modern light fixtures, cabinets, and counter tops. Depending on what you're looking for, you can find an excellent turnkey home that's move-in ready or an affordable hidden gem that you can make your own through renovations and upgrades.
Amenities Near Ekota Real Estate
Residents of Ekota real estate enjoy excellent access to area amenities with the Mill Woods Recreation Centre and Mill Woods Town Centre both within walking distance.

Taking the freeway, you can quickly access Cineplex Odeon, IKEA, and Walmart at South Edmonton Common, or drive north to visit downtown or the University of Alberta campus. With Edmonton International Airport less than 30 minutes away too, Ekota homes for sale can be the starting point of any journey.
