Although the Benchlands area only comprises two long roads on the north side of the valley, the large single family homes and lovely townhomes that are found in this location are some of the most sought after properties in Canmore. Many of the homes in this small area provide gorgeous southern views of dramatic mountain peaks, especially those positioned on the south side of the streets. Homes in the Benchlands area generally range from the 1990’s builds to brand new homes, all taking advantage of the close access to the Town centre, as well as the amenities of Cougar Creek, including the elementary school and several small local restaurants. The Benchlands area also features, like Cougar Creek and Eagle Terrace that border it, many wonderful walking trails that allow one to either take in the stunning views from atop the ridge overlooking the valley floor or the peaceful quiet of the natural reserve space that is found between the two roads that make up the Benchlands area.
A wonderful family location with its calm streets and desirable location, the homes of Benchlands are small in number, but a consistently popular spot for both full time residents and those looking for an expansive weekend retreat.
