SHAUGHNESSY VANCOUVER WEST, BC

Shaughnessy is an entirely residential neighborhood in Vancouver’s Westside, British Columbia. Shaughnessy was created in 1907 by Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) and was named after Thomas Shaughnessy, 1st Baron Shaughnessy, former president of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Shaughnessy is the site of many historical homes with a higher-than-average proportion of heritage houses from the first half of last century.

Shaughnessy is built on the heights overlooking Vancouver's Downtown and has always aspired to be the city's most prestigious area. It is one of the Vancouver's most prosperous and stable neighborhood with beautiful houses and tree-lined streets. The eastern side of this area has two hospitals Vancouver General Hospital (VGH) & Womans & Childrens Hospital and the gorgeous VanDusen Botanical Garden (39th & Oak). The estate-like character of the community is a result of a combination of large lots, winding boulevards, and extensive landscaping. This is the best place to be in Vancouver for heritage homes, and that is one of the reasons why Vancouver city council voted unanimously to put the new designation on First Shaughnessy in October 2015.
