Situated along oceanfront and beautiful mountain backdrops, there are several reasons why this city is eagerly being sought after by a multitude of age groups, and the Neacsu Denner Real Estate Group can provide the best in service to help you achieve your real estate goals.
North Vancouver has something to offer just about everyone. Neighbouring West Vancouver, it shares very similar attractions with a hint of a modern flare. With the mountains as your backyard, there are endless hiking trails. Starting at the “end” of North Vancouver, in Deep Cove, there is the famous Baden Powell Trail that will take you on a scenic 48-kilometer stretch from one end of North Vancouver to the opposite end in West Vancouver. Of course, you could start it in West Vancouver and move East, finishing in North Vancouver. The community of Deep Cove is a funky, quaint, tight-knit community built on arts, culture, health, and outdoor activities.
It is widely known for its popular hike, Quarry Rock, an easy, picturesque hike that offers scenic views of Indian Arm. The best part is that it can easily be accomplish in a quick hour and a half for hikers of all ages and capabilities. Water sports are extremely popular in this area as well. Boating, kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding can frequently be viewed along the calm ocean side. There are family friendly parks to enjoy picnics and ocean piers for kids to toss a fishing line into. Unique shops will have you treasuring one-of-a-kind finds and the assortment of cafes and restaurants touch on everything from informal taco shacks to high-class seafood restaurants. But perhaps the biggest commodity Deep Cove is known for is Honey’s Doughnuts, where anyone from locals, Vancouverites, and even celebrities rave about these homemade treats! The lineup may be long but the doughnuts are well worth the wait!
Additionally, the community of Deep Cove is situated just below its neighbouring Seymour area where Mount Seymour is located. In the wintertime, Mount Seymour is a popular destination for skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing. In the summer time, mountain bikers from all over the province flock to these trails. Its Seymour Demonstration Forest is 20-kilometers of pristine, perfectly paved, road surrounded by tall, dense forest making a dream path for all walkers, joggers, and cyclists. Golfing and community centers are just around the corner and this area is full of majestic wildlife.
Above all the fantastic attractions Deep Cove has to offer, this peaceful North Vancouver community is limited in residential properties. They don’t often come up for sale, but when they do, they sell extremely quickly. This is especially true of the waterfront properties that are close to all that Deep Cove has to offer like undisturbed, widespread ocean views that stare out into the Indian Arm and the mountains around Belcarra.
Moving farther West, a rapidly growing area is Lonsdale Avenue. Lonsdale is a main street running from North to South, from the mountains right down to the water. The gateway to North Vancouver, at the base of Lonsdale, is a major bus and sea bus terminal, bringing students and professionals alike to downtown Vancouver and beyond in no time. The area has surely been growing for a long time but in recent years, its sudden boom of new condominiums, trendy shops and cafes, and the newly developed “Shipyards” is the perfect setting for a great time. The Shipyards is where a Friday night farmer’s market, local brew pub and landmark pier extending 700 meters over the Burrard Inlet, offering 360 degree views over the North Shore and Vancouver skyline. With countless boutique restaurants, cafes and shops continually popping up, Lonsdale draws the attention of young professionals, young families, and even empty nesters looking to downsize their home in exchange for something with vibrancy and a view steps away from their front door.
Homes and condos in the Lonsdale area are in constant demand. Agents and buyers are aware that this booming area isn’t slowing down any time soon. Lonsdale appeals to such a wide variety of buyers that multiple offer situations and bidding wars are a norm when purchasing anything from a condominium to a home in the area. In fact, realtor Nick Neacsu of the Neacsu Denner Real Estate Group loves and believes in the growth of this area so much that he recently purchased an ocean view condo himself.
Another perk of living in North Vancouver is its proximity to both the Second Narrows Bridge and the Lions Gate Bridge. The majority of the residents commute from all over the Lower Mainland, so having the Second Narrows Bridge in North Vancouver makes it an easy commute for professionals travelling to Vancouver, Burnaby, Coquitlam and beyond. Likewise, the Lions Gate Bridge is on the western end of the city, making commuting to downtown Vancouver a breeze. Additionally, public transport, such as the bus and Sea Bus methods, run frequently and with extensive hours making this environmentally conscious city one to be proud of.
No matter where you reside in North Vancouver, the main highway is never far away, taking commuters out west to West Vancouver, Squamish, and Whistler and beyond or out east to Burnaby, Surrey and Langley. Marine Drive is the main roadway that runs along the water and ties right into both, the Second Narrows and Lions Gate Bridges, and West Vancouver.
The safe city of North Vancouver has multiple options for families in regards to education. From numerous bilingual elementary schools and high schools to private schools and even a University, the spanning range of educational options will be to the liking of every parent.
There are also multiple public community centres located all over the North Vancouver area, including John Braithwaite Community Centre, Harry Jerome Recreation Centre, and Karen Magnussen Community Centre. The newly renovated Delbrook Community Recreation Centre offers three levels of recreation, cultural, and community spaces. Its aquatic facility features a six-lane swimming pool along with separate leisure pool and hot tub.
Cultural diversity is well established in North Vancouver. Many families were born and raised in the city but many have relocated from elsewhere in the province, country or from out of the country. The integration of diversity is welcomed with open arms, and there are plenty of schools and programs that incorporate cultural heritage as a norm amongst the city. With such a mixture of different cultures, schools are now offering a plethora of languages to choose from. Options typically include French, Spanish, Mandarin, and Japanese.
This transforming urban city is also becoming a draw for non-North Shore residents because of all the happenings around town. North Vancouver has two movie theatres – one located in Park and Tilford, just off the Second Narrows bridge. This is a convenient location, not only for North Vancouverites, but travellers coming from Burnaby and Port Moody. And the other theatre is located right in the heart of Lower Lonsdale, making it easily accessible by foot and transit. If film doesn’t interest you, the city also has two theatres where a consistent rotation of plays – including comedies and dramas, satires and performances for children – are held at Hendry Hall Theatre and the First Impressions Theatre. Tickets tend to be very cheap, and these shows are a great way to support the local arts while experiencing something slightly different from the average night.
With the mountains and sea as its backdrop, North Vancouver locals live with an emphasis on health and local foods, and there is no shortage of options to fulfill this lifestyle. There are multiple locations where desires for organic, free-range meat, farm fresh produce, gluten-free and vegan, and much more can be found. This city is a great mixture of urban, rural, with a dash of bohemian combined to create one remarkable, enjoyable, and attractive city.

The owners did not receive the offer they were looking for and re-listed with the Neacsu Denner Real Estate Group. After new staging, photographs, videography and portfolio were prepared, the property was given a proper agent’s open, and showcased on their social media accounts, including Facebook and Instagram.
