Here’s a tour through nine luxurious neighbourhoods with the highest valued properties in all of Vancouver.
Point Grey Road, Kitsilano
Does it pay to have your chakras in check? One of B.C.’s most famous business owners also owns the most expensive home in the province. Lululemon founder Chip Wilson’s personal retreat on Point Grey Road has an assessment value of nearly $76,000,000.
This is the city’s most exclusive street with captivating Vancouver vistas spanning from the ocean to the mountains. Imagine waking up every day to your own private postcard view.
Belmont Avenue has become one of the most sought after areas for luxury homes in the world. Guarded by immaculate hedges, charming Spanish- and colonial-style homes sit on gardens as impressive as their views, like this one on nearby Drummond Drive.
Belmont Avenue, Point Grey
This district claims five of the 10 homes with the highest property values in B.C., including the second and third most expensive properties.
Marine Drive NW, Point Grey
Situated on the hill connecting Point Grey with the Endowment Lands, these property values ascend with the slope of the street. Here, you’ll discover modern homes sculpted into the hillside with stunning views of Spanish Banks and Jericho Beach. You might even run into famed environmentalist David Suzuki who built his eco-friendly abode nearby.
The Crescent, Shaughnessy
“Opulence” is the first word that comes to mind when describing the old world estates in Shaughnessy. Residents live large, with immense grounds that include multiple guest houses. The Crescent’s pristine rod-iron gates hint at why these properties claim some of the highest B.C. assessment values.
Osler Street, Shaughnessy
If Vancouver’s notoriously posh Shaughnessy homes offer a taste of historic elegance and prosperity, Osler Street is the perfect example. No luxury is forgotten here, from Victorian gardens to personal home theatres to security guards. Commuting along Osler Street is like driving through an art gallery of homes, each with grand pillars and cobblestone pathways.
Radcliffe Avenue, West Vancouver
West Vancouver homes have attracted top celebrities from near and far, including hockey legend Wayne Gretzky and the one and only Oprah Winfrey. The district’s west coast architecture features natural cedar, oak and stone mixed with modern geometric shapes and glass accents. These unobstructed ocean views are proof that West Van is the pinnacle of Lower Mainland living.
Marlow Place, Chartwell, West Vancouver
These lavish homes overlook some of B.C.’s most extravagant landscapes, with airy, open concept layouts awaiting inside. With panoramic ocean views, impressive wrap-around porches and a short commute to West Vancouver’s most popular luxury activities — golf courses, country clubs and exclusive private schools — it’s no wonder homes in Chartwell are ranked amongst the most valued in the Lower Mainland.
Bellevue Avenue, West Vancouver
Looking for an infinity pool? The ones on Bellevue Avenue extend all the way to Vancouver Island on a clear day. The beauty doesn't end there, either. These West Vancouver homes feature equally breathtaking interior designs.
Newton Wynd, University Endowment Lands
The views here are pretty spectacular, but the homes themselves are sights to behold. The University Endowment Lands are located in one of the city's most historic neighbourhoods. Vancouver’s wealthiest families have chosen to craft their homes here for generations, each one redefining what it means to live a life of luxury. The results include feature libraries, grand entryways and exquisite landscaping.
The combination of incredible views, intelligent designs and much envied lifestyles have put Vancouver's high-end properties on the map among the most sought after in the world.. On these nine prestigious streets, you certainly can have it all.
