Tamarack Common

Tamarack Common has been such a popular choice that there are actually only a few lots left in this neighbourhood. It has a solid blend of different styles of homes, including townhomes, duplex homes, and front attached homes. This variety leads to a diverse and friendly community.

If you choose this community for your home, your family will love heading out to the central park and playground. Since it’s the only one, it’s where many throughout the neighbourhood gather together. Your kids will always have someone to play with.

The Meadows Recreation Centre is just across the street if you’re looking for something different from the playground. The Aquatic Centre here is a big draw! It has water slides, diving boards, and spray features for the kids. People also enjoy going to the rec centre to take fitness classes or spend some time on the treadmill.

Tamarack Common is close to stores like Sobeys and Home Depot, and health facilities like the Grey Nuns Hospital. With easy access to the Anthony Henday, a short drive to the airport, and about a 20-minute drive to the downtown area, it’s easy to see why so many people have chosen Tamarack Common.

Laurel Crossing

Laurel Crossing is an excellent choice for families. The community features a storm pond, several parks, and a playground area. Kids will have no trouble getting outside and staying active. There’s also a school planned for the future, which will be close enough for the kids to walk.

The Laurel Crossing neighbourhood also features many different styles of homes, including townhomes, duplex homes, and front attached homes. You can choose the style that best meets your needs.

For a bit of extra fun, you can choose between the Meadows Recreation Centre and the Millwoods Recreation Centre. Both are nearby and offer similar, yet slightly different features. Residents of Laurel Crossing also enjoy going to the Mill Woods Golf Course to play a few rounds.

The proximity to Mill Woods Town Centre and the Rio-Can Shopping Centre makes it easy to shop for the essentials. With plenty of restaurants and coffee shops around, you won’t have any trouble picking up dinner on the way home from work or meeting some friends for a mid-day pick-me-up.

Laurel Crossing is also conveniently located for commuters. It’s also just 20 minutes to the downtown area, and easy to get anywhere else in the city via the Anthony Henday.

The Orchards

Sterling only builds single family, front-attached homes in the Orchards community, so it’s clear that it attracts families who are really looking to settle down.

Throughout the design of the community, there’s been a strong focus on what makes communities livable, so you’ll see features like natural beauty and spaces for active fun, like the tobogganing hill. Not only is there plenty of things to do in and around The Orchards, but there’s also an active community organization that plans events for residents to enjoy together.

Parents will be happy to know that in addition to the fine public schools in the area, there’s also a Montessori school where younger children can get a head start on their education. 

The Orchards is outside of the Anthony Henday perimeter, but that doesn’t mean that you miss out on the essentials. In fact, there are several recreation centres nearby, including the Ivor Dent Sports Park and the Ellerslie Recreation and Community League. You can shop at Sobey’s or Save-On-Foods, and there’s even an Indian supermarket so pick up those hard-to-find ingredients.

Frequent travellers love this community because it’s so close to the airport, which makes those early morning flights easier to manage. At the same time, you’re not far from the downtown area. It’s less than a 30-minute drive. That’s only slightly longer than some other communities, but you get the advantage of a quieter and more relaxed lifestyle. Most people feel that’s a great trade-off.

As you can see, the Southeast Edmonton area has a lot to offer. When you combine the convenience and the affordable prices, you clearly have a winner.
