McKenzie Lake Real Estate Information
McKenzie Lake is a stunning community located on the east side of the tranquil Bow River. Originally founded in 1882 by one of the area's first settlers, J. McKenzie, this area quickly rose in popularity with the arrival of the Canadian Pacific Railway just a couple of years later. With many more settlers arriving in the following years due to the prime farmland and convenient access roads, the McKenzie Lake area only continued to grow until Calgary annexed it in the 1970's. A short 12 years later, in 1982, McKenzie Lake residential development began and has created what is now one of the most affluent communities in all of Southeast Calgary.
Homes in McKenzie Lake
Today it's easy to see McKenzie Lake's historical roots in the agricultural land that surrounds it in such a picturesque manner. However, with updated architecture used in the designs of the impressive homes within it, it's easy to see that this community has adapted to the evolving tastes of home buyers keeping demand high and home values elevated in McKenzie Lake. While there are modest single-family homes for sale that can be found along the tree-lined streets, there are also gorgeous multi-million dollar estates as well as condos and gated luxury homes in McKenzie Lake may appeal to all types of buyers.
Many of these properties offer waterfront views of the incredible lake, which looks just as beautiful in the winter as it does the summer.
