Altamont is a low-density hillside community in West Vancouver situated to the west of Dundarave and sits between Highway 1 and the ocean. Altamont is characterized by large estate-sized lots and luxurious mansions with many local beaches in the area. Because the streets and homes in this area are built into the hillside, the grid layout followed in the Dundarave and Ambleside area are no longer used for road layout.
Almost all of the homes in Altamont are single family homes. The area is more secluded, with large private estate-lots, and mature trees and landscaping. Real estate prices can be some of the highest prices for non-waterfront land in Vancouver. Please contact us to search for real estate in Altamont.
