British Properties

West Vancouver’s transformation from boat-access-only beachside enclave to the most prestigious residential neighbourhood and shopping district on the North Shore can be accredited to the Guinness family (of Irish stout fame), owners of the British Properties and its surrounding trifecta of iconic landmarks. With housing prices ranging from $2-million fixer-upper homes to $15-million sweeping estates, permanent residency in the area is but a dream for the average homeowner. A scenic drive up the windy roads on a sunny Sunday afternoon is a great way to plot out future lottery-winning plans, however. The ocean views are unparalleled and a drive-by, up-close look at some of the world’s most luxurious properties makes the uphill jaunt worth the drive.
