Named after Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) President Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, this neighbourhood was developed by CPR in 1885. Ensuring the neighbourhood’s exclusivity from its inception, CPR required that all homes must cost over $6,000, significantly higher than the standard cost of $1,000.

The success of Shaughnessy real estate was magnificent. By 1914, 243 estates were built, with 80 percent of the owners listed on Vancouver’s social register. Adjacent lands were soon developed to meet rising demands.

With an exquisite serenity gracing the neighborhood’s grand estates, Shaughnessy is the true-blue heart of Vancouver, British Columbia. Tree-lined lanes reveal a turn-of-the-19th-century setting of graciousness and pedigree. Luxuriously landscaped heritage homes populate this largely residential neighbourhood settled on gentle hills offering exquisite views of the city. Nestling comfortably in this park-like setting, the lanes follow the area’s gentle curves – maybe only Shaughnessy could diverge so confidently from Vancouver’s pervasive grid-based street design!

Confident and thriving, the neighbourhood has many charms, whether for the well-healed resident or for the visitor. Not least of these charms is VanDusen Botanical Garden, an incomparable gem in a gorgeous setting; you can find it at 5251 Oak Street. The neighbourhood is considered to be somewhat walkable.
