Townhouses in Fraserview will place you just Southeast of Vancouver proper. Extending from the Fraser River to East 54th Avenue and from Knight Street to Vivian Drive, this close-knit community possesses a wonderful spirit that appeals to both the young and the young at heart.
The residents around Fraserview hail from countries all around the world, most notably Vietnam, China, India, and the Philippines. In turn, this diversity has resulted in an eclectic mix of food and flavours that are readily available at the mom and pop style restaurants dotted all over Victoria Drive. From steaming pho and glazed barbecue duck to simmering curries and tasty dim sum, Fraserview’s cuisine is a wonderful reflection of the remarkable cultural mosaic that makes up modern Vancouver. There’s good access to shopping, and close proximity to the picturesque Fraser River means plenty of trails for walking, jogging, and cycling. And for those aiming to perfect their swing, the Fraserview Golf Course is year round attraction. Like any family oriented neighbourhood, Fraserview offers an adequate selection of schools. Sir James Douglas Annex and David Oppenheimer Schools serve young children while high schoolers have a relatively short commute to the nearby David Thompson Secondary. Private institutions near the area include Vancouver College, Little Flower Academy, and the prestigious York House School for young ladies.
Townhouses in Fraserview
Fraserview originally began as an industrial neighbourhood, populated with pockets of single-family residences. Many of the older houses were developed in the 1940s to accommodate the veterans returning from World War II. While some of these homes remain today, they now share space with the townhouses and low-rise condominiums that sprang up during a surge of development in the eighties. The spacious, solid townhouses , in particular, are ideal for families looking to upsize from condo living or downsize from empty nests. Today, the neighbourhood remains as popular as ever, thanks in part to the centralized location and good public transit, which puts commuters just 20 minutes outside the downtown core.
