Homes for Sale in Edmonton
AUDREY ABUAN - RE/MAX Real Estate REALTOR®
Rhatigan Ridge is located in southwest Edmonton, in north Riverbend. In 1969, the Riverbend-Terwillegar Heights Outline Plan detailed a development scheme for a comprehensively planned community, which included Rhatigan Ridge. With a planned population of 95,000 people, Riverbend-Terwillegar Heights was the first of Edmonton’s residential housing areas to be planned on such a large scale. Rhatigan Ridge was first subdivided in 1980, but the uncertain economy of the early 1980s prompted a number of subsequent small scale changes to the original plan.
Rhatigan Ridge consists of 89 percent houses built during the 1980s, with 11 percent being duplex homes and row houses. The house styles vary from large luxury homes on spacious lots to more modest executive style houses. Rhatigan Ridge has a high point of land with a panoramic view just south of Riverbend Road. The ridge noted in the neighbourhood’s name runs north from the high point.
Rhatigan Ridge was named in honour of Thomas Rhatigan, a farmer and landowner in the area for many years. He was famous for the quality of his wheat and oats and was proclaimed World Oat King at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto three times. Almost every home for sale in Rhatigan Ridge Edmonton will be owner occupied for easy viewings.
