Many of the small turn-of-last-century homes were replaced by bungalows built in the 1940s - 50s. The neighbourhood includes many "character" homes on south facing slopes with great views of Burrard Inlet and Downtown Vancouver. Calverhall is one of the more affordable North Vancouver neighbourhoods. The area offers single family homes, generally with lane access and 50 foot wide lots.
