Autumn is a special time, particularly on the North Shore. It is a season of colours as a profusion of trees contrast in shades of fall glory. The mountain peaks promise the first snow of the season, yet it is still possible to walk the Ambleside shoreline in warm sunshine. Fall often begins with more action in the housing market as the lazy days of summer give way to the back-to-school flurry, and often a move as families settle in for the season. This September was an exception. Total residential sales in West Vancouver, for example, were down from both a month earlier and from September of last year. This anomaly was not restricted to one of Canada’s most exclusive communities. Total residential sales in the Metro Vancouver region in September were 43.5 per cent lower than in the same month last year and 17.3 per cent lower than in August 2018, reports the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. At the same time, the number of homes for sale increased 38.2 per cent to more than 13,000 properties. “Metro Vancouver’s housing market has changed pace compared to the last few years,” noted Ashley Smith, president of the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. “Our townhome and apartment markets are in balanced VIRANI REAL ESTATE ADVISORS HEAD OFFICE 105-100 PARK ROYAL S WEST VANCOUVER, BC V7T 1A2 TEL 604.913.1000 TEL 604.695.1000 FAX 1.888.812.2650


territory while our detached home market remains clearly in a buyer’s market. It is important for both home buyers and sellers to work with their Realtor to understand what these trends mean to them.” What it may mean for those who have aspired to own a better home, particularly a detached house, is that this autumn represents an opportunity. Benchmark home prices, which have increased 52% over the past three years and are nearly double what they were a decade ago, have stabilized remarkably. In West Vancouver, the benchmark detached house price in September was 10 per cent lower than it was a year earlier. The overall benchmark price of all homes in Greater Vancouver was only 2.2 per cent above September 2017. Autumn is a time for contemplation and, perhaps, an opportune time to consider the potential in today’s changing housing market. Sincerely,

Brand New in the British Properties




BRITISH PROPERTIES WEST VANCOUVER An immediate sense of serenity takes hold when you cross the threshold of the Upper Levels Highway into West Vancouver’s storied British Properties. A grand, grassy boulevard is lined with cherry trees that paint a dramatic swath of pink when blossoming in spring. Towering cedars and Douglas firs offer a woodsy welcome to this mountainside neighbourhood that was established in the 1930s and remains one of Metro Vancouver’s most exclusive and desirable areas in which to live. There are no street grids or concentric circles in this community that’s draped across the mountain. Instead, roads undulate along the natural topography that’s studded with stately edifices fronted by gardens of rhododendrons, Japanese maples and dogwoods. Some areas are more manicured with lush lawns and sleek architectural elements, but untamed natural beauty adds to its allure. At every turn are unfettered and peek-a-boo views of mountain, city and sea—the crowning glory of the quiet environs. The Baden-Powell trail cuts a straight path above the curving rows of single-family residences nestled within the pristine surroundings. Hikers, joggers and dog walkers alike amble portions of this 48-km trail that traverses the North Shore. It wends east through Capilano River Regional Park and west across Brothers Creek to Horseshoe Bay. Unlike other areas of Metro Vancouver where industry provided a prelude to residential development, the British Properties was destined to be a luxuriant domain for living, with homes surrounded by nature as it remains today. That vision was realized by the wealthy Guinness family of Irish beer fame, who backed the British Pacific Properties company to purchase a 4,000-acre parcel of land stretching from the Capilano River to Horseshoe Bay. During its early days, the neighbourhood was perhaps too secluded: access involved taking a ferry across the first narrows of Burrard Inlet. But by November 1938, again with funding from the Guinness family, the Lions Gate Bridge provided a lifeline to the city, connecting car traffic to West Vancouver. In the same year, a playful proposition was added to the mountain village. The Capilano Golf & Country Club was the vision of A. J. Taylor, a Vancouver entrepreneur who initiated the purchase of its 160 acres of land from the Guinness family. Members can revel in its history as they tee off in this pocket of rainforest and unwind in the grand Tudor clubhouse that was built in 1939. A quick drive down the hill is Hollyburn Country Club, which recently completed a $15 million expansion, offering 25 tennis courts, state-of-the-art fitness facilities and services such as personal training and child-minding. Similarly, Park Royal Shopping Centre continues to reveal expansions and sustainable enhancements such as electric vehicle-charging stations. High up on the mountainside, the secluded neighbourhood continues to evolve and embrace diversity. British Pacific Properties is setting forth a new vision, densifying neighbourhoods with mixed-used villages and semi-detached homes. The area will open up once again, ushering in a new generation of families who will continue to write the neighbourhood’s colourful story.

"At every turn are unfettered and peek-aboo views of mountain, city and sea—the crowning glory of the quiet environs."

EDGEMONT NORTH VANCOUVER In the Amazon age of easy, cheap, and fast home delivery, there are not supposed to be any more neighbourhood bookshops. But in the space of three blocks in Edgemont Village, there are two. They co-exist peacefully, complementing each other; one is Kidsbooks and the other is 32 Books & Gallery. Both are independent, locally owned, and buzzing with activity. Perhaps that is the best description of the character of Edgemont, known as "the village" among locals. With a cheerful collection of more than 100 shops and services along a half-kilometre stretch, the community hub at the intersection of Edgemont and Highland Boulevards is a magnet for the surrounding neighbourhoods of Capilano Highlands, Delbrook, Forest Hills, and Sunset Gardens. Every day of the week it is a popular gathering place, where people still believe in the importance of neighbourhood bookstores.

"The first shops on the high street of Edgemont opened in the 1940s, soon after the construction of the Lions Gate Bridge prompted residential development on the North Shore."

The village also offers a variety of grocery stores, including the midsized Edgemont Market and smaller specialty stores: Columbus Farm Market, the Meatery, and Cobs Bread. Similarly, one-of-akind clothing shops include boutiques aimed at children, teenagers, women and men. Banks, insurance agencies, and hair salons offer valuable services within walking distance for many locals. Specialty shops like Urban Yarns, Kabloom flower shop, Pandora gift shop, and Tartooful, which carries artistic home design items like candles and wool blankets, add unexpected appeal to the streetscape. Of course, coffee shops including Delaney's and CafĂŠ Artigiano are ever-popular destinations. A cornerstone of Edgemont Village is the Capilano branch of the North Vancouver Library, which features comfortable reading areas, a wonderful children's section, and a teen area.

The first shops on the high street of Edgemont opened in the 1940s, soon after the construction of the Lions Gate Bridge prompted residential development on the North Shore. Edgemont Village was built on the side of Grouse Mountain, with winding streets and crescents following the contours of the landscape.The neighbourhoods remain densely forested, offering an eclectic mix of old and new houses and natural privacy afforded by the surrounding trees and the varying orientations and sizes of the lots. A sharp-eyed observer would notice a few remaining examples of the original West Coast Modernist homes. Designed by the group of architects including Fred Hollingsworth, Arthur Erickson, Ron Thom and Ned Pratt, these homes typically exhibited open-plan layouts, local materials, and compatibility with the landscape. These architects used the North Shore to develop their style. The family-oriented nature of Edgemont Village has endured, with many people who grew up in the neighbourhood raising their own children there. Condominiums aimed at seniors are now being developed in the area, to allow multiple generations to stay in the place they love. A vibrant community sports scene and a brand new community centre, currently under construction, are attractive draws for young families. Edgemont village truly comes alive on Friday evenings in July, when traffic stops on the boulevard for the summer concert series. It's a great place to pick up ice cream, yogurt or cappuccinos from one of the many local eateries and gather with friends and neighbours to enjoy music, dancing and the stunning backdrop of the North Shore mountains.

YALETOWN VANCOUVER It’s hard to imagine that the vibrant Yaletown neighbourhood brimming with chic boutiques, award-winning restaurants and elegant condos was once Vancouver’s hardworking warehouse district. Yet the narrow enclave hemmed in between Robson and Homer streets and flowing toward the northern fringes of False Creek was home to heavy industry, including a shingle mill and cooperage. Log booms floated in the industrial inner city waterway. That area was only transformed 30 years ago from featureless mud flats into a spectacular showcase for Expo 86, the World’s Fair, which also marked the city’s centennial. Today, glass condo towers and contemporary townhouses attract both growing families and dedicated urbanites to this revitalized wedge of the city that embraces its storied roots. In 1887, for instance, the Canadian Pacific Railway’s Engine 374 hauled the first transcontinental train into the city. This historic engine has been preserved at the 1888 post-and-beam Roundhouse Community Centre at the intersection of Davie Street and Pacific Boulevard. The Yaletown community converges at this arts and recreation centre, where kids can play basketball or join skateboard class while adults channel their inner artisans in the woodworking and ceramics studios. Steps away is Elsie Roy Elementary School and David Lam Park, a glorious green space with a playground—all facing the sparkling waters of False Creek. In the core of Yaletown, particularly on Mainland and Hamilton streets, distinctive architectural features serve as reminders of Yaletown’s heritage. During the 1980s, the area was rezoned, allowing for an appealing mix of buildings for residential, commercial and industrial use. Overhanging canopies and red-brick loading docks bring a character to this corridor where warehouses have been transformed into grand, loft-style residences. Original elements such as sweeping picture windows, fir flooring and brickwork have been retained, giving these city homes a New York City vibe. Many condos also enjoy that ultimate urban escape: rooftop decks with views of the city. Fine dining and casual haunts are literally on these doorsteps. Blue Water Cafe & Raw Bar lures people with its sustainable seafood served up in stunning surroundings. An amble away, the Opus Hotel also attracts neighbourhood denizens to sip inventive cocktails in its sexy new lobby bar. Coffee aficionados have ample choices for a jolt of java, like at longtime local chain JJ Bean and neighbourhood newcomer, Small Victory Cafe. Both offer street-facing patios for watching the city scene unfold. There’s little reason to leave the neighbourhood, but the Yaletown Station on the Canada Line (a legacy from the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games) handily whisks people south to Vancouver International Airport and north to the waterfront. From here, it’s easy to take Harbour Air or Helijet to the islands, board a cruise ship to Alaska, or simply stroll the seawall to Stanley Park.

"It’s hard to imagine that the vibrant Yaletown

neighbourhood brimming

with chic boutiques, awardwinning restaurants and elegant condos was once

Vancouver’s hardworking warehouse district."
