Boasting one of the most famous views in the city, Crescent Heights is one of the best candidates for inner-city custom home building. Large lots and established infrastructure appeal to custom home planning while the neighborgood itself promotes a genuinely unique personality.
Bound by several key NW and NE thoroughfares, Crescent Heights features the busy business districts of centre street and the Trans-Canada, gorgeous strolls like McHugh Bluff which runs beneath Crescent Road, and permanent fixtures like the famed Peter’s Drive-in.
Crescent Heights also holds the distinction of having been it’s own village back in the day, having been established a staggering 120 years ago. One can see this history in the large boulevards and the plentiful parks and the prime location within what eventually became the city of Calgary. The village of Crescent Heights has become an enviable inner-city community; one that features some of the most impressive and unique custome homes in the city.
Along the walking path on Crescent Road, while enjoying a view of the north side of the downtown core, you can see some of the more impressice builds that have been created in recent years. Mixed well with old structures and new, Crescent Road is a feast for anyone interested in homes and custom design.
While the main strip of homes with a view are reserved for those of a certain income bracket, Crescent Heights contains a wealth of land, with lots and builds for any income. It is this quality mix of demongraphics that makes Crescent Heights such a diverse atmosphere for inner-city life in Calgary.
Van Manna Custom Homes has builds underway in this neighborhood, enjoying the large lot size to afford comfortable homes in this sought after location. If someone were to work in the downtown core, they could stroll down McHugh Bluff and across the pedestrian bridge by the Calgary Curling Club and into Princes Island Park and be at work in under 20 minutes. And if they are feeling energetic at the end of the day, they can climb the stairs at Mchugh Bluff park back up to Crescent Road and catch the last light of the view.
Crescent Heights mixes history with urban pulse and quiet warmth to create an inner-city life that is both storied and a bit of a best kept secret. And being able to walk off one of Peter’s epic milkshakes with a nice stroll back home afterwards never hurt anyone either.
