East Coulee Real Estate Listings and Information
Homebuyers with an inclination for the outdoors shouldn’t miss East Coulee, a scenic hideaway only an eight kilometer drive from the core of Drumheller. Once accommodating a population of 3000, but now a quiet community of about 200, this former hamlet is a part of the town of Drumheller.
East Coulee features a tranquil atmosphere in a neighbourhood lining the Red Deer River in the heart of the valley. Many houses here enjoy beautiful views of the river and hills.
The area is also home to a variety of historical sites, including a 1930s schoolhouse that now operates as the East Coulee School Museum, a working tipple at the Atlas Coal Mine, and fine views of the area’s geology with only a short drive to the famous Hoodoos of the Badlands. Many other popular tourist attractions and even two provincial parks are just a short drive away.
There are a mix of homes in East Coulee, with most from the 1900s and only a handful of newer dwellings. Although there are plans to bring Town of Drumheller water to East Coulee, the area is still fed with underground water wells. Make sure to speak with a real estate agent who is knowledgeable about the properties in this neighbourhood.
