The exteriors of these properties demand a glance from visitors who walk by, as they were designed with natural materials and architecture that echoes the influence of master architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Each of these is situated around large yards, tree-lined streets, and even indoor/outdoor swimming pools for some homeowners.
Everywhere one looks in the neighbourhood they see something beautiful, whether they are looking at the luxury homes that make up 100% of real estate in Bel-Aire or the stunning views of nature and the city lights around them.
The home prices in Bel-Aire are considered to be some of the most expensive in Calgary. Most properties start at around $1 million and extend far beyond $10 million.
