Hillhurst Calgary Community and Home Search

Inner city homes for sale in West Hillhurst and HillhurstHillhurst Calgary Inner City Community and Home Search

Hillhurst is a highly desirable inner city community in northwest Calgary found just minutes from the downtown core. Home construction on the land dates back to the 1880’s, but official establishment of the Hillhurst community wasn’t until 1914.

A combination of prime inner city location, aging homes and high demand for new inner city infills have given way to many new home developments in Hillhurst.

This community gives its residents quick access to the downtown core, amenities and services, outdoor recreation with immediate access to the Bow River pathways and so much more! It’s no wonder it has become one of the most popular communities for infill home buyers in northern Calgary.
