Crescent Heights Calgary

Hailed as one of the "old money" communities in the city, Crescent Heights neighbourhood has a unique blend of cliff-top estates, quaint small homes, and recently remodeled single-family dwellings. The area is far enough from downtown to be quiet and serene, but also close enough to offer breathtaking city views. Despite being only 15-min bus ride to downtown, you can expect to shell out an average of $1,390 for rent.

Huntington Hills Calgary

Composed chiefly of residential homes, Huntington Hills has become quite popular among families. The neighbourhood is dotted with fabulous townhomes and beautiful single-family residences with roomy backyards. Even better, the area is suitably close to the Calgary Airport. And with an average rental rate of $1,120, Huntington Hills is no shabby.

Brentwood Calgary
