the 9 highest valued streets in Metro Vancouver

Vancouver has an international reputation for breathtaking scenery, an enviable coastal lifestyle, and housing market prices to match. Here’s a look at nine of the most luxurious streets with the highest-valued properties among all of Metro Vancouver’s real estate, for planning your next major purchase or your next afternoon walk. 

Point Grey Road, Kitsilano

Point Grey Road is the city’s most exclusive street. This stretch of idyllic Kitsilano waterfront is accessible by private road, making it the perfect low-traffic route for walking or riding a bike. With a unique mix of beachy craftsman-style homes and modern architectural masterpieces that showcase unobstructed views of the Vancouver skyline, it’s no wonder that Point Grey Road is where you’ll find the province’s highest valued home. Most of Point Grey Road’s residences are hidden behind tall gates and hedges for maximum privacy, so if you’re looking for a better view, rent a paddleboard or kayak to admire the oceanfront homes from the water.

Belmont Avenue, Point Grey

Follow the gentle curve of Drummond Drive until you’ve arrived at  Belmont Avenue, famed for its secluded estates boasting some of the highest property values in BC. With immaculate hedges, sprawling lawns inspired by the gardens of legendary European palaces, and sweeping views of the city, it’s no wonder that six of the ten most expensive homes in Metro Vancouver are located on this one block. If you’ve tired of your typical Locarno Beach walk, stroll up Belmont and see if you can catch a glimpse of these illustrious Revivalist homes from behind their gates.

Marine Drive NW, Point Grey

Situated on the hill connecting Point Grey with the Endowment Lands, the property values ascend with the incline of the street. Many of the tall, modern homes perched atop the slope are complete with rooftop patios to take in a panoramic view of the ocean and mountain ranges. On a warm summer evening, take in the sunset as you drive up NW Marine all the way to UBC. Complete your journey with an ice cream cone from Rain or Shine.

The Crescent, Shaughnessy

In the middle of First Shaughnessy’s winding constellation of peaceful tree-lined streets, you’ll find the Crescent. The Crescent is the midpoint of a circular park surrounded by old-world estates, many of which were built over a century ago. Pack a picnic or bring your dog for a run around the park so you can spend some time gazing at these iconic heritage homes.

Osler Street, Shaughnessy

Stemming off of the Crescent, Osler Street is known for its elegant Tudor architecture and rich Vancouver heritage. Take in the tranquil atmosphere and get lost the picturesque homes and manicured gardens. When you’re done exploring, treat yourself to a visit to Dragon Ball Tea House, a local favourite for bubble tea.


Radcliffe Avenue, West Vancouver

On the other side of the Lion’s Gate Bridge, take a slight detour off Marine Drive to admire the gorgeous homes along Radcliffe Avenue. With unobstructed views of the ocean, these homes are some of the most sought-after in West Vancouver. Here the architecture offers clean, modern lines and cedar, oak, and stone that personify the West Coast’s natural sensibilities.

Marlowe Place, Chartwell, West Vancouver

Carved out of the Cypress Mountain hillside, the homes along Marlowe Place offer panoramic views of the city skyline. Only a short drive from the Hollyburn Country Club, Capilano Golf Club, and the ski hill, residents have no shortage of options for how they enjoy their leisure time. A brief walk down the hill will take you to the British Properties viewpoint, an ideal place for quiet reflection.

Bellevue Avenue, West Vancouver

Bellevue Avenue traces the winding West Vancouver coastline, delivering stunning views all the way to Vancouver Island. Park your car and walk over to the Beach House, a local seafood-centric and West Coast inspired restaurant famed for its striped umbrellas and charming ocean-front patio.

Newton Wynd, University Endowment Lands

Don’t let the UBC address deceive you, the homes in the University Endowment Lands are a far cry from student housing. The impressive estates along Newton Wynd feature immaculately groomed lawns and floor-to-ceiling windows that look out all the way up Howe Sound. Here you’ll find a unique mix of modern homes and retro bungalows with a glamorous, nostalgic feel.

Whether you are looking to make your next move to one of the city’s most coveted streets or simply in search of your next walking route, these nine Metro Vancouver streets are sure to inspire.
