Real Estate in Aspen Woods is highly sought-after for its fine estate homes and affluent community. One of the most desirable areas on the West side of Calgary, Aspen Woods characterized by the Aspen lined trees offers wooded landscapes, panoramic mountain views, and easy access to downtown Calgary. Nestled into the heart of what is further classified as “The Upper Westside,” showcasing incredible cinematic views with some of the highest elevation points in the entire city.
Latitudinally bounded by 14th and 17th Ave SW and longitudinally by 69 Street and what is soon to be the completion of the ring road (Stoney Trail).
Similar to its upper westside neighbours, 85 Street acts as an East/West cross-section of the neighbourhood, supplemented by streets denoted as a “Drive” in each of the respective developments.
Aspen Woods truly set the suburbs of Calgary on the map. Despite its origin in 2001, it wasn’t until the oil boom in 2007 that really summoned its presence. Continuously fetching multiple millions dollars for single family homes, which was previously only to be seen in Calgary’s city centre. The gravitational pull to the classy modern prairie and contemporary mansions being erected on “The Ridge” quickly made it the obvious choice for many of the affluent.
This development was so popular that in 2014, Rockwood Custom Homes began to further extend the development towards 17th Ave SW encapsulating the iconic residence at 44 Aspen Ridge Hts with 42 individual home sites ranging from 7000-20 000 sq ft and numerous luxury villas. This is known as Aspen Ridge Heights.
44 aspen ridge heights; an elegant masterpiece. This home is perched in the centre of this development as a focal point. A 10 000 square foot french country castle captivated by an obnoxious 0.83 acre lot built in 2010 that has traded for over 10 million dollars on the resale market at one time. Well deserving of a video on its own.

Aspen Landing centre provides all of your day-to-day needs providing grocery stores, coffee shops, gas stations, restaurants, kids daycares and many more. It is located almost dead centre of the neighbourhood just east of 85th Street
Aspen Woods is primarily a car-dependent neighbourhood.
Although, a huge caveat to this is that of the most westerly stop of the blue line LRT at 69 Street, a quick train ride can have you downtown at all of Calgary’s most popular bars and restaurants in a matter of minutes without having to inconvenience yourself with a way home.
Without a doubt, the presence of quality education will always remain a top priority for families looking to lay their roots. Look no further with the likes of leading private K-12 options of Webber Academy & Calgary Academy directly inside Aspen. Luckily, as a part of district 19 you can have the option of Calgary French and International School in Cougar Ridge in the private sector as well.
Dr. Roberta Bondar School CBE (K-6) and Guardian Angel School (K-6) CSSD are incredible options for those wanting to be in the public system.
Through the construction of Aspen Woods Estates and other projects near Aspen Landing Centre, we see the growth of the community remaining strong while much of it remains in the stability phase.
