Houses for Sale in Edmonton
AUDREY ABUAN - RE/MAX Real Estate REALTOR®
Sherwood is much like Jasper Park, its neighbour to the south. It was formerly part of the Town of Jasper Place, annexed to Edmonton in 1964. Almost all of Sherwood’s primary development occurred during the 1950s and shortly after the incorporation of Jasper Place.
The majority of the residential properties are developed with detached homes, however, a number of low-rise apartments are located along 149 Street. Approximately half of the homes in Sherwood Edmonton are owner occupied and the other half of the homes are tenant occupied.
Over recent years, Sherwood has been experiencing significant residential redevelopment and reinvestment, likely due its excellent location. Sherwood features pre World War II homes next to homes built in the mid to late 2000s, which provides a lot of variety in the type, style, and price of housing stock available throughout the community.
The neighbourhood name was chosen for promotional value, as Sherwood recalls the Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire, England, which was the backdrop for the legend of Robin Hood.
