Arbutus Real estate in the Arbutus area of Vancouver is comprised of a mix of multiple residential and single family residences. Many Arbutus homes are located by the Arbutus Village Shopping Centre, which offers residents convenient access to groceries, banking services, eateries, and specialty stores.
