Vancouver's Shaughnessy district was originally developed by the Canadian Pacific Railway, and has historically been home to the most upscale real estate in the city. The spacious lots and vintage homes in Shaughnessy are generally among the largest and most interesting in Vancouver. For an example of the magnificent properties that Shaughnessy has to offer, be sure to visit the street called The Circle. Shaughnessy homes are located close to three outstanding private schools: York House, Little Flower Academy—both of which are girls' schools, and Vancouver College, which is the local Catholic school. Discerning families looking for a place to call home will not be disappointed with what the Shaughnessy real estate market has to offer.
