Right at the doorstep of the famous world-renowned Spruce Meadows lies the family town of Bridlewood. This community located in the far South West corner of Calgary is noted for its many single-family homes and low rise townhouses. Bridlewood is an ideal family community, with its fairly priced houses and nearby schools shaping it as an attractive option for budding families.
Initially developed in the early 1990’s, Bridlewood was designed to take advantage of its prime location by maximizing the use of open green spaces. Although it is located to the far end of the SW Calgary region, Calgary Downtown is easily accessible through the Macleod Trail; an LRT extension is planned to increase your options in the near future.
A moderately priced community, Bridlewood real estate prices average around the $400,000 mark. This averages out at about $270 per sq. ft. With each single-family home spending an average of 35 days on the market, the community continues to grow apace.
