The affluent neighbourhood of Arbutus, is a highly sought-after real estate investment opportunity within Vancouver. Sitting just West of Downtown Vancouver, Arbutus borders along the north side of 16th Avenue, with Quesnel Drive running to its west, West King Edward Avenue to the south and East Boulevard to the east. The spacious nature of the land also lends itself to tree-lined streets, and is in close proximity to amenities such as dining, shopping, schools and entertainment.

The History of Quilchena

Quilchena was once low-lying marshland, but in the 40s and 50s sand was brought into the region from False Creek in order to begin developing the area. Development over the years has added to the beauty of the neighbourhood, while keeping a large parkland portion of Quilchena intact, adding further appeal to this Vancouver real estate investment opportunity.

The Future of Quilchena

Quilchena offers a variety of real estate opportunities – from older single-family homes to low-rise condos, as well as townhouses. Plus, because it borders along the Shaughnessy community, the affluent appeal by association definitely adds to the elegance of the area, with large homes from yesteryear and modern spacious dwellings intermingling along its streets.

As with any community in Vancouver, Quilchena has endless potential, offering an already-inviting environment for anyone looking to call this neighbourhood home. A place I would love to introduce you to, and help you uncover if this is the right community for your real estate buying needs!
