Oleskiw Real Estate Listings
Oleskiw is a large but secluded community in west Edmonton, tucked within a loop of the North Saskatchewan River and below the Wolf Willow Ravine. There are only two roads coming into the community, Wolf Willow Road and Wanyandi Road, both meeting 170 Street as the western boundary of the community of Oleskiw. The other boundaries are formed by Wolf Willow Road and the Wolf Willow Ravine to the north, and the river valley from the east all the way to the south-west. Originally part of Wolf Willow Farm, the community was renamed in 1972 in honour of Dr. Oleskiw, an academic who was key in bringing many of the original Ukrainian settlers to the Edmonton area.
Development in Oleskiw progressed slowly, beginning throughout the 1970s and continuing in the 80s and 90s. Even today, some infill continues to be built, taking advantage of the natural settings offered by the river valley and ravines. Oleskiw homes for sale are almost entirely single-family detached homes, dominating nearly 90% of the community’s real estate. Besides this, there are some scattered duplexes and rowhouses throughout Oleskiw. The population of Oleskiw is 2,802, and the majority are long-term residents and homeowners, with a typical household income well above the city-wide average.
Oleskiw’s location allows easy access to many industrial employment areas throughout the west end, the West Edmonton Mall immediately north, downtown Edmonton, and many other parts of west and south Edmonton via the nearby Whitemud Drive. Many commercial amenities, besides those at West Edmonton Mall, can be found at The Marketplace at Callingwood, located just a little west. Here, you’ll find a Safeway, Shoppers Drug Mart, farmer’s market, liquor, banks, food options, and much more. Further, at 170 Street and within the north-west corner of Oleskiw, a small plaza offers community-level conveniences, including a Starbucks, spa, salon, food, bank, and gas.
Besides the primary feature of the abundant surrounding greenspace offered by the ravine and long river valley frontage, the beautiful views and trails, the Edmonton Golf and Country Club encloses much of the southern part of Oleskiw. This private golf course provides a view for many homes lucky enough to be positioned overlooking its fairways. A large central park area offers a playground, sports fields, and a preserved tree stand. Further facilities available nearby, in Callingwood, include the Callingwood Twin Arenas, a branch of the Edmonton Public Library, a skate park, splash park, and YMCA.
Grace Assembly Full Gospel Church is found on Wolf Willow Road, as well as the Beth Israel Synagogue. St. Anthony’s Ukrainian Orthodox Church and the Rahma Mosque are a few blocks west of Oleskiw. There are no schools within Oleskiw, though residents are well-served by nearby schools: HE Beriault Catholic Junior High School, Thorncliffe Elementary School, St. Justin Catholic School, Callingwood Elementary School, Centennial School, Our Lady of the Prairies School, Talmud Torah School, and Blessed Oscar Romero Catholic High School.
