Back to School

Brett Price

Walking to school as a child... imagination ran free, seasons changed before our eyes, neighbours became friends. The following homes are all within easy walking distance of one or more of Vancouver’s best schools — but not so near that you’ll hear the class bell when school is in session. Backyards and landscapes also feature prominently — places where kids can run, play, and dream, all within the boundaries of your personal kingdom.  

Graduation day

7060 Prescott Street, Vancouver, Southlands
A hidden gem in one of the city’s quietest and most prestigious neighbourhoods. The 1.4-acre property is a 15-minute walk through forested neighbourhoods due south from Crofton House. The estate includes an immaculately finished 4,000-square-foot main house and two small cottages, both of which offer a full one-bedroom suite. There’s also a high-ceiling barn converted to a modern home office.

Location truly is everything. Situated on an extra-wide lot in Vancouver’s charming Dunbar neighbourhood, this traditional “A-frame” house is a quick five-minute walk from St. John’s Junior School. The 3,050-square-foot home was tastefully renovated in early 2013, and features an exceptionally liveable layout. A large walk-out, multi-tiered deck opens into a well-manicured private garden.

Well-thought-out architecture, tasteful design, superlative attention to detail — this brand new home in the heart of Vancouver’s prestigious Shaughnessy neighbourhood has it all. The spacious 5,700-square-foot layout offers plenty of room to grow. Parents will love the floor-to-ceiling wine cellar, the fitness room, and the sauna. Kids will be happy with the fully-loaded in-home theatre and sun-drenched backyard. And both will be smiling about how close it is to York House School and Little Flower Academy.
