Chelsea Park real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Chelsea Park is exemplified by its relaxed environment. This area is quiet overall, as noise from streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - although that is not the case closer to Trans-Canada Highway. Finally, there are a few parks close by for residents to unwind in and they are especially well-spread out, which makes them easy to get to from the majority of locations in the neighbourhood.
Travelling by car is very convenient in Chelsea Park. The majority of houses for sale are a short drive from the closest highway, such as Trans-Canada Highway, and parking is generally easy. In contrast, commuting by transit can be very difficult in this neighbourhood as a result of the infrequent service. Chelsea Park is not very bicycling-friendly since the cycling network is not very extensive, and there are quite a few elevation changes. Chelsea Park is also not very suitable for walking as running daily errands is impractical by walking.
In Chelsea Park, around 45% of buildings are single detached homes, and the rest of the properties are mainly small apartment buildings. This part of West Vancouver has a good choice of housing size options, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. About 60% of the population of this neighbourhood own their home and the remainder are renters. Around one third of properties in this part of West Vancouver were constructed between 1960 and 1980, while most of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1990s.
It is a reasonably short walk to access both primary and secondary schools from anywhere in Chelsea Park. On the other hand, it can be very hard to reach daycares as a pedestrian. With regards to eating, it is very rarely feasible for house buyers in this part of the municipality to travel to the nearest supermarket by walking.
