Neighborhood Info

Community Profile

 The best-known area of West Vancouver is the British Properties.

The homes of this exclusive community are strategically located to blend with the natural landscape of the North Shore. Sitting high on the mountainside, many of the large luxurious homes offer incredible ocean views that stretch from Mount Baker in Washington State to Vancouver Island

Homes are custom designed to suit the natural surroundings and irregular, sloped lots.  Lot sizes in the British Properties are generally very large to accommodate homes that exceed 6000 square feet and offer a desirable private setting.

Development of the exclusive enclave known as British Properties began in 1931, backed by money from the Guinness family -- the brewers. British Pacific Properties Limited built the landmark Lions Gate bridge that connects West Vancouver with Vancouver, and this was instrumental in the development of Park Royal as a shopping mecca for residents of British Properties and the North Shore.

Perched on the steep slopes of Cypress Mountain, British Properties homes enjoy spectacular views of Burrard Inlet. Home prices range from $535,000 (for building lots) to $7.5 million.

And the lifestyle is worth it, with skiing at Cypress Provincial Park above, golfing at the Capilano Golf and Country Club, and prime educational institutions, such as Collingwood School and Mulgrave School. Restaurants and shopping abound along Marine Drive in the adjacent Dundarave and Ambleside villages, as well as at Park Royal.
