Looking for a House, Condo or Townhouse for sale in the Delbrook area of North Vancouver?
Delbrook is a residential community between Mosquito Creek to the west and Thain Creek to the east, with most homes on the side streets off Delbrook Avenue. Upper Delbrook is built on both sides of Mosquito Creek above Montroyal Blvd, and was developed in the 1950s and 60s with multiple cul-de-sacs giving houses outstanding views of Downtown Vancouver and/or Vancouver Island.
This neighbourhood has combinations of bungalows, post & beam, and newly-constructed homes on generous sized lots. Single family homes line the streets and cul-de-sacs of this fine neighbourhood that residents are proud to call home. Many homes take advantage of the sloped landscape and southerly views to downtown Vancouver. The streets are quiet and oftentimes flat making it a highly desireable area for families. In upper Delbrook, above Montroyal Boulevard, steep and terraced lots are the setting for some spectacular homes with stunning views. New condominium style units have recently been built at Delbrook Plaza. Please contact us to search for real estate in Delbrook.
