Somerset Real Estate — a lovely quiet neighbourhood at the southern end of Calgary, with a lot of greenery around it.

Welcome to the Calgary neighborhood of Somerset, set at the southern end of Calgary. With so much going on in the community, residents here enjoy as much time outdoors as they do indoors. The neighbourhood is loaded with amenities, and what’s not available within, is available immediately outside its borders. Shawnessy Shopping Centre is located in the area.

Reliable public transport is available for Somerset residents who want to travel downtown or other parts of Calgary. Somerset-Bridlewood CTrain Station is about a half-kilometer from the community. Shawnessy CTrain Station and Fish Creek – Lacombe CTrain Station are also less than a kilometer away. Somerset is a car-dependant neighborhood, and you can complete all your errands within the community with a car. If you prefer a bus, there are several stops in the community. There is some bike infrastructure which makes the area somewhat bikeable.

The community of Somerset is nestled between Spruce Meadows Trail forming its southern border, Bridlewood that forms its western border, and Macleod Trail that forms its eastern border.

Somerset Real Estate Homes

Located in the southern end of Calgary, Somerset was established in 1995, making it a newer neighbourhood compared to many others in Calgary, designed to have an abundance of space and pathways for easy navigation.. Across 22x from Spruce Meadows, the green grass matches that of the famous equestrian facility, with a family friendly atmosphere and newer homes reminding us of Calgary’s prosperous growth.

Somerset is a relatively new neighbourhood for Calgary standards, being 20 years old. 29.7% of the residences in the community are condominiums and apartments, with 11.2% of housing being used for rental purposes. The majority of homes are single-family detached homes, offered in two-storey and bungalow style.

Real estate is made up of modern buildings that are fitted with the latest amenities. Schools, playgrounds, and recreational centres like Cardel Rec South and nearby Spruce Meadow Equestrian facility make this an exciting place to live in, even for children and young adults. New parents are happy with the childcare available within the community’s borders.
