Shaughnessy Real Estate | Homes and Apartments for Sale

Shaughnessy Real Estate 

Shaughnessy is an almost entirely residential neighbourhood in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, spanning about 447 hectares in a relatively central locale. It is bordered by 16th Avenue to the north, 41st Avenue to the south, Oak Street to the east, and Arbutus Street/West Boulevard to the west. Recent census estimates place its population at 9020, hailing from 2970 households. It was named after Thomas Shaughnessy, 1st Baron Shaughnessy, former president of the Shaughnessy Home for saleCanadian Pacific Railway.

The neighbourhood’s average house price is $3.09 million, the highest in Vancouver. It is also the site of many historical homes, especially in First Shaughnessy. Of the neighbourhood’s homes 51.5% were built before or during World War II, compared with 20.8% for the city at large. This is largely due to the 1981 First Shaughnessy Official Development Plan by-law, which promotes private property ownership and single-family dwelling, while limiting property subdivision and population density.

Vancouver’s most prestigious neighbourhood, First Shaughnessy, is even more exclusive after being designated the city’s first-ever Heritage Conservation Area in a unanimous vote by city council.

The brand new designation gives the city the power to prevent First Shaughnessy homes built before 1940 from being demolished.

Shaughnessy is home to Little Flower Academy, Vancouver College, York House School, and public schools, Shaughnessy Elementary, and Quilchena Elementary. There is one public high school in Shaughnessy Point Grey Secondary: the neighbourhood is in the catchment area of each of Eric Hamber Secondary School, in Oakridge, or Prince of Wales Secondary School, in Arbutus Ridge.
