South Cambie is a quaint Vancouver community not too far from Downtown Vancouver, and is known as one the smallest areas in which to purchase real estate in Metro Vancouver. Not only does it have a minimal population, but the actual land mass is also small.

However, this is one reason South Cambie is the ideal location to call home; nestled between the prestigious neighbourhood of Shaughnessy and running along the Queen Elizabeth Park, South Cambie is a 217-hectare plot of land just big enough for a handful of happy homes.

With Oak Street running north and south along the South Cambie border, this neighbourhood stretched from Oak Street to the west to Ontario Street to the east, West 49th to the north and West 59th to the south, offering an easy commute in and out.

The Livability of South Cambie

Despite its small size, South Cambie is alive and well on the real estate front. Offering a variety of heritage sites – including the Royal Canadian Mounted Police training facility that sits along Heather Street, as well as well-kept heritage homes that were built between 1910 and 1920.

Its central location makes it the ideal spot to invest in, offering ample shopping, dining and to-dos in the surrounding neighbourhoods, and is a hop skip and a jump away from Downtown Vancouver itself.

The History of South Cambie

As is the case for many communities around the Lower Mainland, South Cambie began as a land grant given to the Canadian Pacific Railway in the 1800s, and received its name from Henry Cambie – a CPR Engineer. And, as mentioned, some of the original heritage homes still stand today, as beautiful as they ever were.

The Future of South Cambie

South Cambie’s petite size does not sway this community from showing up big, and they continue to update heritage homes and attract affluent buyers locally and abroad. Not only is the residential area beautiful, but the educational opportunities are stunning for families also, and include such schools as: Eric Hamber Secondary School, Emily Carr Elementary School, Edith Cavell Elementary School, along with French emersion schools for those who prefer.
