ABOUT DUNBAR HOUSES
Dunbar is a Vancouver community with immense history, extending from Pacific Spirit Park to the west, Blenhein to the east, with West 16th Avenue running north all the way to 41st Avenue. Mainly a residential area consisting of single-family homes, this affluent neighbourhood offers picture-perfect, tree-lined streets, well-manicured yards, spacious plots of land and equally spacious homes.
The Livability of Dunbar
Dunbar is a community proud to offer mainly locally owned shops, which is embraced by the immediate community, as well as metro Vancouver at large, as increasing numbers of people are looking to “buy local”. One of many reasons this is a popular Vancouver location for investing in real estate, keeping local businesses thriving, while enjoying the gorgeous community that bustles about here also.
The History of Dunbar
Dunbar is a historic wonderland, with archaeological finds showing that First Nations people had actually lived in the region for centuries, estimating to have been in the Dunbar area since around 400 BC.
Although Europeans didn’t arrive in Vancouver until the late 1800s, with UBC coming into existence in the 1900s, and the railway also making this an accessible area in which to come and go, Dunbar might be one of the oldest, most historic regions in Vancouver – with 21 structures still existing in Dunbar on the City of Vancouver’s heritage register.
The Future of Dunbar
Dunbar is as rich in future projections as it is in times past. With gardened pathways and tree-lines landscapes, the visual beauty of the area is stunning any time of year, and is actually a destination point for those looking for a photo-op during spring when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom.
Multiple parks grace the neighbourhood, including: Musqueam Park, Pacific Spirit Regional Park, and the Camosun Bog, which is a two-thousand-year-old wetland – just to name a few.
In addition, the Southlands Riding Club, along with a number of exclusive golf courses grace the area, being host to many major Canadian events in the past, with more to come.
Dunbar is truly a gorgeous neighbourhood I would love to walk you through, and help you decide if this neighbourhood feels like the right area for you and your family to call home!
