Deer Ridge Real Estate Information
The South Calgary community of Deer Ridge has a rich history, as it was part of the second largest annexation to the city in 1961. Once Fish Creek Park was established twelve years later in 1973, developers were able to start building on what is now the community of Deer Ridge.
Builders broke ground in 1978, creating a mix of developments including single-family homes, condos, townhouses, row-houses, and duplexes. Estate homes were also built along the ridge to accommodate luxury home buyers as well.
Today, Deer Ridge is a popular outer suburb of Calgary that attracts buyers who are looking for natural surroundings and beautiful views of the Bow River. Most homes for sale in Deer Ridge have traditional architectural designs, although many buyers have begun to renovate to create a more modern and contemporary appearance.
On the exterior, landscapes are well-kept and offer curb appeal that’s in perfect harmony with the rest of the neighbourhood. With the beauty of homes and allure of nature, it’s easy to see why owning real estate in Deer Ridge is a popular choice for home buyers today.
