Varsity is an established neighborhood in the Northwest quadrant of Calgary, Alberta. It was developed in the 1960s and early 1970s on a plateau to the north of the Bow River valley and is primarily composed of Single-detached dwellings on wide lots. The neighborhood comprises three major areas: Varsity Acres, Varsity Village, and Varsity Estates. Varsity is bounded on the north and east by Crowchild Trail, on the west by the Bow River, and on the south by 32nd Avenue NW. It borders the neighborhoods of Silver Springs and Bowness on the west side, and both Montgomery and the University of Calgary campus on the south side. The easternmost portion of Varsity contains the University of Calgary Research Park.
Varsity Acres is a mature neighborhood dating back to the '60s and '70s, with well kept single-family homes in quiet streets. Many of which feature rear lanes, designed to separate pedestrians from vehicular traffic.
Varsity Village contains some single-family homes, but real estate here mainly consists of townhouses and lowrise and apartment-style condos.
Especially with close proximity to the University of Calgary, Varsity Village is a great choice for investors seeking rental properties.
Many homes and parks in Varsity Estates offer unobstructed views of the Rocky Mountains Canada Olympic Park to the west, as well as the Bow River Valley to the south.
Varsity Estate homes range from about $500,000 and up. Varsity Estate condos are typically townhouses, starting from the low $300,000's
