Why Should You Buy a Home in Mount Pleasant?
If you’re thinking about moving to Mount Pleasant, chances are you’ve already considered these. But if not, then let us tell you why we think buying a home in Mount Pleasant is well worth it!
#1 – Confederation Park is Yours
One thing Mount Pleasant offers that many others in the inner city don’t is direct access to a sprawling outdoor park – Confederation Park. This massive green space features paved pathways, playgrounds, picnic spots and much, much more.
Confederation Park even boasts a full 9-hole golf course and driving range, the perfect place for you to work on your game during the spring and summer.
From any part of Mount Pleasant, it takes just a few minutes walking north / west to reach Confederation Park. Paved pathways can be accessed from multiple throughways from the community’s brim into the park, making the perfect place for leisure and recreation of your choosing.
You could even stroll down to the golf course if you wanted to with cart in hand. But let’s be honest… a walk with the dog or perhaps an jog before or after work is more likely (and more legal).
In the summer, Confederation Park blooms into a beautiful and lush place to be, calming the mood and soothing the soul.
#2 – Amenities, Everywhere!
Many desire an inner city lifestyle because of the benefits that go with it. Quick-and-easy access to amenities is one of them; Mount Pleasant’s residents need not drive far to reach the restaurant, shop or service they are looking for.
Restaurants such as 4th Spot on Kitchen & Bar and The Block on sit within sight from McDonalds and A&W on 4th Street NW. There’s even a 7-11 that can be reached on foot within a few short minutes from anywhere in Mount Pleasant. Then there’s 16th Avenue North – the Trans Canada Highway – where even more amenities await.
Let’s not forget the fact that for students SAIT and ACAD are just across the street to the southwest. Plus, there’s tons of bus routes servicing the area which extend far into the north and into the downtown area. Let’s not forget the Home Depot just west on 16th Ave for all your home’s needs.
Simply put, running errands when living in a Mount Pleasant home is convenient, creatingtime for the more important things in life.
Mount Pleasant was one of the first communities to be established north of downtown in the early 1900s. Most of the homes in the area weren’t built until later – in the 1950s and 60s – many of which still stand today. This has given way for many new infill developments, showcasing the works of some of Calgary’s best custom home builders.
With a mix of old a new construction, you’ll find a wide variety of real estate options in Mount Pleasant to choose from. There’s typically homes priced from the $300’s all the way up to the $1 million plus range.
Many listings in the lower price ranges are older construction and prime redevelopment opportunities for those looking to build their very own inner city dream home.
