Dechene homes for sale are still relatively new constructed from the early eighties to 2000. These far west Edmonton houses will all be middle to upper-class homes, almost entirely with two-car front parking garages. Hawthorne Estate is the only Dechene condo. It was named after Joseph Miville Dechene, an entrepreneurial man who established a tobacco store, and later in his life, he became involved in Alberta politics. Dechene is within walking distance to the river valley in Gariepy and features a large community park and Good Shepherd Catholic School.
