Now an affluent neighborhood with million-dollar homes right in the middle of Vancouver’s coveted west side, Arbutus Ridge’s beginnings were much less glamorous. Formerly known as Asthma Flats, the area that stretches from Mackenzie and Puget Drive to East Boulevard and Maple Crescent, and from 16th to 41st Avenue, used to be a swamp.

It was developed by the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) in the early 1900s and by 1912 already boasted many elegant middle class houses. The rail lines that in 1905 connected Steveston to Vancouver can still be seen and are a hallmark of the area, as is the quality Arbutus Ridge real estate.

Arbutus Ridge is a gem of a neighbourhood with tree-lined streets, restored heritage houses and upscale condos. Despite being extremely central and with easy access to downtown, the University of British Columbia (UBC), Kitsilano, Jericho Beach and plenty of local shopping, the area is peaceful and naturally beautiful. Quiet neighbourhood parks, stunning views to the North Shore Mountains and lots of greenery can easily make you forget that you are in the middle of a bustling metropolis.

The small town feel residents enjoy is enhanced by the fact that the region is very walkable. With a walk score of 70, it is the 14th most walkable neighbourhood in Vancouver, which means most errands can be carried out on foot. There are many mature, long-time residents as well as newer families and young people living in Arbutus Ridge. The neighbourhood is home to professionals, business people, doctors and professors from UBC. In 2006, 36 percent of residents were between the ages of 40 to 64, while 23 percent were under 19 years old.

Movie buffs will enjoy visiting the Dunbar Theatre, one of Vancouver’s last remaining neighbourhood cinemas, where it is impossible not to feel nostalgic for a time before cineplexes. For a nice meal in the area, you could head over to the Gramercy Grill for a hearty brunch or visit La Buca for handmade pasta and an intimate Italian dining experience. Another neighbourhood favourite is Trafalgars Bistro, where all the ham, bacon and chorizo is cured and smoked in-house. Your sweet tooth will be happy to know that Arbutus Ridge boasts one of the city’s best places for dessert: Sweet Obsession, adjacent to Trafalgars and under the same ownership, offers a wide selection of cakes, flans, tarts and pastries.

Arbutus Ridge has traditionally been made up mostly of detached single-family homes on larger than average lot sizes. Hillside homes built on the ridge that gives the neighbourhood its name are prized for having magnificent views to Vancouver’s downtown and North Shore.

The area is also home to many houses known as “Vancouver Specials”.

Built during a period from the 1960s to the 1980s, these homes have a “box-like” structure, low-pitched roofs and balconies across the front of the house. Recently, developments have brought many new condos and townhomes to the area.
