British Properties real estate guide & listings for sale
British Properties offers a relaxed ambience and will appeal to home buyers who enjoy spending time outdoors. There are over 50 parks nearby for residents to explore, making them very easy to access. This part of West Vancouver is also very good for those who need a quiet atmosphere, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour.
Driving is an excellent means of transportation in British Properties. Nearby highways, such as Trans-Canada Highway, are reasonably easy to access from anywhere in British Properties, and parking is quite easy. However, the public transit service in this part of West Vancouver is not very frequent. Thankfully, there are a few bus lines, and it is straightforward to find a nearby bus stop from most houses. Cycling is very hard in this neighbourhood as riding a bicycle is made difficult by the typically steep topography, and there are few bike lanes. It is also challenging for people travelling on foot to navigate this neighbourhood as meeting daily needs is impractical.
Homeowners occupy around 85% of the dwellings in British Properties and 15% are rented. The large proportion of single detached homes in the housing stock of this neighbourhood is an important part of its character. The homes in this area are quite old, since around one third of its buildings were built between 1960 and 1980, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 2000s. This neighbourhood is particularly good for those looking for four or more bedroom homes.
Primary schools are often an extended walk away, and there are no high schools in British Properties. Likewise, daycares are not very plentiful and consequently not always within walking distance. When it comes to food, it is very rarely possible for house buyers in British Properties to purchase their groceries by walking.
