These five luxury homes not only feature custom designs and covetable locations, but spectacular vistas.
Great views shouldn’t be strictly for the birds. When purchasing a high-end home, the interior is certainly important, but many buyers may forget to also focus on what’s outside the windows. This is definitely something to consider in Edmonton, home to the beautiful, 18,000-acre North Saskatchewan River Valley—the largest continuous urban green space in all of North America.
Check out these five high-end homes overlooking everything from the city’s river valley to its expansive ravine system.

Just west of Edmonton’s downtown, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom Oliver apartment offers stunning, panoramic views of both the river valley and the cityscape.
Perfect for the professional couple, this centrally-located apartment is listed for $1,100,000.
