#5

Britannia

Community: Britannia
Sold Price:  $3,600,000

Rounding out the top 5 is another home located on Britannia Drive which sold above list price  – by $600,100 to be exact.  It was listed on May 31 and sold on June 3rd.

Britannia Drive was the focus of the City of Calgary earlier this year when trees were illegally cut behind a couple of the homes on the street.

It happened in a forested area behind two houses in the 4200 block of Britannia Drive, along the escarpment overlooking Riverdale Park and Sandy Beach Park on the other side of the Elbow River.

The trees obscured the view of the downtown skyline from the properties, one of which was recently listed…

Karen Paul, the past president of the Britannia Community Association, got a call about a week ago from a concerned resident, she said.

“I can only tell you that circumstantially the properties behind which this occurred were recently sold.  If you stand in the one that will most likely be slated for redevelopment, it looks to me like it was done to open up a city view,” she said.  (Source)

Five different homes have been listed on the 4200 block of Britannia Drive this year.

Five Least Expensive Properties Sold

This list can be tricky.  There are many parking stalls, storage lockers, mobile homes, homes that had to be moved off the lot, or homes to be sold with 1/2 interest ownership.    Here are the 5 least expensive properties that sold excluding those mentioned above.
