What makes a home worth the high-end listing price?

In Edmonton, high-end homes often have a higher listing price because they offer an impressive amount of square footage. But these five feature high-end homes aren’t just big. They’re all visually distinctive in their own way, and they all have something unique to offer that makes them truly high-end.

9755 145 Street NW

This $1,595,000 home in Crestwood has five bedrooms, four and a half baths, and detail like no other. The main floor boasts a chef’s kitchen opening into a dining area that extends into the backyard through a folding door system. It also offers a cozy living area divided into two distinct spaces by a built-in fireplace and shelving.

That’s just the start. Other amenities include the quality materials throughout, the dedicated laundry room, the master bathroom with soaker tub and walk-in shower, and the finished basement with a wet bar, home theatre, and plenty of room to entertain.

And, of course, we can’t forget about the gorgeous outdoor patio that’s perfect for those summer evenings.

2789 Wheaton Drive NW

This Windermere home might look unassuming from the street, but before you open the front door, you’d better prepare yourself to be wowed. Start with the open-concept main floor, which offers a gourmet kitchen with a walk-in pantry, a spacious dining area, and a cozy living room with built-in fireplace.

Explore the four bedrooms, four full bathrooms, and two half bathrooms that pay close attention to every detail. (You’ll especially love the spa-like ensuite and walk-in closet in the master bedroom.)

Then head down to the basement to see the gym, wet bar, TV area, and custom wine room. End your tour with the heated patio, which offers a built-in barbecue and natural gas fireplace. It can all be yours for just $1,699,900.

1086 Wanyandi Way NW

From the moment you step into this five-bedroom, six-bathroom home, you can’t help but be impressed.

The sweeping foyer opens into an open-concept area with a formal dining room, a sun-soaked living room with a fireplace, a breakfast nook opening onto a wrap-around patio, and a kitchen with enough appliances and cupboard space to be every chef’s dream.

Other features include a wine cellar, a fully finished walkout basement leads into a carefully landscaped yard, a triple attached garage, and plenty of bright, comfortable spaces to relax and unwind. The luxury baked into this home makes it well worth the $2,495,000 price tag.

14011 86 Avenue NW

This $1,619,000 home was originally built in 1958, but the inside has been fully renovated in a modern yet family-friendly style. It’s the definition of understated elegance with vaulted ceilings, white walls, and either tile or hardwood flooring throughout, making it easy to clean up after kids and pets.

You’ll love the large modern kitchen, two media rooms, and home gym, as well as the cozy outdoor patio. And with four bedrooms and four bathrooms, there’s more than enough room for the whole family to call this house home.

108 Fairway Drive NW

“Unconventional” is the spirit of this $1,499,000 home in Westbrook Estates. Its architecture is defined by vaulted beamed ceilings set at an angle for a one-of-a-kind feel.

The main area comprises a living room and dining room separated by a gas fireplace. Through the dining room, you’ll find an open kitchen with modern appliances and a large island perfect for casual dining.

The four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom home is bathed in light (thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows) and has more than enough space for all your needs. The master bedroom has a five-piece ensuite and a walk-in closet, and the open basement is ready and waiting for your favourite activities—as is the outdoor pool!
