When deciding to buy a new home, choosing the right community for you and your family is so important. Nestled in a mature neighbourhood off 97th Street, Castlebrook is surrounded by all your favourite shops, stores, schools, and outdoor activities.
There are so many reasons to call Castlebrook home, but here are our top five reasons to live in Castlebrook:
Castlebrook is all about family and connection. Connected to some of Edmonton’s bests schools, growing up in Castlebrook means you are within walking distance to:
- NEW École A la Decouverte School (Opened Fall 2022) – Ecole A la Decouverte differs from other French immersion schools because of its specialty program teaching only in French for K-9.
- Baturyn Public Elementary School – located in the heart of the community, Baturyn offers programing from K-6.
- Charles Catholic Elementary School – located right next to Baturyn School, St. Charles offers programming from K-6.
No matter what school you decide, few communities in Edmonton offer Public, Catholic, and French schooling.
2. Mature Community
Compared to a newly constructed community where there are little to non-exist amenities, Castlebrook offers new homes in an already established neighbourhood. This means you can live in a brand-new home, surrounded by beautiful trees and rich amenities without having to live through years of construction or alternatively, taking on the stress of renovating your outdated home yourself.
