Kincora Homes For Sale

A small community with a lot of charm

Kincora is a very special community located in the North central region of the city.  Bordered by the communities of Evanston & Panorama Hills to the East, Sage Hill & Nolan Hill to the North, Sherwood on the West, and Hidden Valley / Hanson’s Ranch directly South.  Scroll to the very bottom of this post to see all the Kincora homes for sale.

One of the most significant reasons the community of Kincora is so sought after by many Calgarians looking for a community to call home, is the Kincora Community Association.  The Kincora Community Association has been instrumental in helping foster the communities sense of pride by keeping the community safe, and utilizing the communities Home Owner Association (H.O.A.) fees to continue to enhance the beautification of the community year over year.  This is evident throughout the community as you quickly realize all the effort that has gone into the annual flower beds,  replacement of any damaged or dying trees along the boulevards and entrances, and overall maintenance of the community itself.

Being a rather small community in Calgary, Kincora is very tight knit.  Community residents can be found walking their dogs through the ravines and Kincora’s extensive pathway system, or in one of the community’s many parks or green spaces.

Taking a walk through the community gives you a feel for how special it really is.  Being a rather small community enables a potential home buyer to walk the paths and streets a little easier.  This can be a great way to meet the current residents and see why they enjoy living here.

Unique Features of Kincora

Stone, Stone, and more Stone.

Kincora loves stone.  One the the first things you’ll notice upon entering this community is the large stone tower on the top of the hill overlooking the community and surrounding area.  As you progress into the community and drive up the tree lined hill you’ll see a large stone community sign welcoming you.  Continue on you’ll be sure to notice all the stone walls, pillars, and caps.  All the homes within the community also have an abundance of stone on the fronts, typically surrounding the garages, exterior pillars, and entrances.

If you like stone, you’ll like Kincora.
