6 stunning homes for sale that are a short drive from Banff

Jul 19 2021, 3:30 pm

As Calgarians, we’re lucky to have Banff and the Rocky Mountains right in our backyard.

Depending on where you live in the city, though, it can still take awhile to drive out to the national park.

If you’ve been searching for somewhere to live that will get you out to the mountains quicker, look no further than Zoocasa‘s round up of homes for sale that are close to Banff.

Several of the homes are in Calgary, within an hour and a half drive from the Rockies, while others are located right in and around Banff.

It’s important to note, however, that in order to reside in the national park, there are eligibility criteria that must first be met, one of which requires your primary place of employment to be in Banff. A full list of criteria can be found on the Parks Canada website.

Check out these five properties that are up for sale close to Banff.
