Planning has always been a key part of Shaughnessy’s continuing heritage as a central Vancouver neighbourhood. Owned and developed by the Canadian Pacific Railway in the 1900s, the area was designed as a prestigious alternative to the West End for the growing population of the (then) nouveaux riches in the city. Montreal landscape architect, Frederick Todd, and Danish engineer, L.E. Davick, designers of New York’s Central Park collaborated to lay out the 6000 acres of Shaughnessy’s wide verdant boulevards and winding crescents, offering a pleasing respite from downtown’s daily grind, in the heart of the city. Shaughnessy is still characterized by sizeable homes with the earmarks of proud heritage.
This enclave of elegance near the city centre also offers its residents a myriad of educational institutions for all members of the family. Shaughnessy Elementary School is situated in the heart of the area while Quilchena Elementary and Carr Elementary lie just over the southwest and eastern boundaries respectively.
Within a short driving distance of the borders of Shaughnessy to the east, is Eric Hamber Secondary, to the west is Prince of Wales Secondary and just past the southwest border, there is the accessible Point Grey Secondary.
If private schools are more of a consideration, they are well represented within a short distance of any Shaughnessy address. Vancouver College, Little Flower Academy, York House School and the Vancouver Talmud Torah, to name just a few. In addition, the prestigious Crofton House and St. George’s are also excellent education options.
…designed by the city’s top architects, who infused the neighbourhood with classic British and early American architectural influences
Shaughnessy is defined by its northern border of 16th Avenue and its southern border of 41st Avenue. The western boundary is a circuitous route of Laburnum to 37th Avenue then over to Marguerite/Cypress/Arbutus to 16th Avenue. Oak Street anchors the eastern edge.
Shaughnessy is strategically located in the centre of Vancouver but is considered to also be at the core of Vancouver’s Westside, near major arteries for car and transit access to anywhere one would need to go.
Many of Shaughnessy’s original homes were designed by the city’s top architects, who infused the neighbourhood with classic British and early American architectural influences that can still be seen today. Supported by members of the community, the city is implementing a special development plan to preserve pre-1940s houses and ensure that new home planning is complementary to Shaughnessy’s distinct architectural stylings.
Most of the dwellings in Shaughnessy are single-family detached homes situated on large (60 feet wide or greater) lots in the upper price range, although there are some discreet strata-titled properties in the mix. A new multi-family townhouse development on the edge of Shaughnessy has been designed and built to seamlessly fit in with the elegance of the area.
Some preferred leisure activities in this neighbourhood are strolling, jogging or biking through the community itself. Shaughnessy encompasses several heritage properties designed to be admired, including the Hycroft and Glen Brae (now home to Canuck Place, a children’s hospice). Among Shaughnessy’s four public parks is the 55-acre VanDusen Botanical Gardens, an everchanging showcase of the community’s gardening acumen.
The borders of Shaughnessy are in a way defined by shopping districts. To the west you’ll find the Arbutus Village Shopping Centre with its supermarket, banking and service amenities.An interesting mix of local shops and restaurants line Oak Street on the eastern side, while the northern edge features the eclectic shops of the South Granville Rise. The southern border, running along West 41st Avenue, offers everything from small, neighbourhood shops and restaurants to the full Oakridge Shopping Centre experience.
Although tucked away from the busy urban drone, Shaughnessy still affords convenient city access by car or bus. The community is bisected by the main thoroughfare of Granville Street, providing roughly a 15-minute drive north to downtown or south to the airport. Oak Street lies on Shaughnessy’s eastern border and is also a favoured route to the airport and into Richmond and other southern communities.

The MLS® Home Price Index is modelled on the Consumer Price Index (CPI) which measures the rate of price change for a basket of goods and services including food, clothing, shelter, and transportation. Instead of measuring goods and services, the HPI measures the change in the price of housing features. Thus, the HPI measures typical, pure price change (inflation or deflation).
