The quintessential Richmond neighbourhood where comfortable suburban living coexists with nature.

The desirable neighbourhoods on Richmond’s northwest corner are surrounded by river and sea and include the neighbourhoods of Thompson, Seafair and Blundell. The highly sought after affluence of northwest Richmond in housing and lifestyle is bordered by River Road and the Fraser River to the north, Francis Road to the south, Gilbert Avenue to the east and the beautiful West Dyke Trail to the west. Be it bird-watching, watching seaplanes land or Sunday brunch at The Flying Beaver, northwest Richmond appeals on so many levels. Adding to the attraction, this area offers easy access to a T&T Asian Supermarket near the Richmond Olympic Oval recreation centre, and is mere minutes to the Richmond Hospital, Golden Village and Richmond Centre. The Terra Nova area of Richmond offers a desirable mix of detached homes, townhomes and condominiums. Residents of this exclusive Richmond enclave enjoy bird-watching at the estuary at Terra Nova Park at the end of River road. Each year wildfowl such as eagles, geese, ducks and herons migrate through Richmond on the Pacific Flyway. The much sought after Terra Nova neighbourhood, including Riverdale to the north, is just minutes from the Richmond Olympic Oval venue used for long track speed skating during the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. Today the Oval has been converted to a multi-sport family facility that includes soccer fields, ice rinks, badminton courts, sports medicine and an advanced fitness complex. Nature lovers, plane spotters, cyclists, dog walkers and bird-watchers are attracted to the beautiful Terra Nova district in Richmond.

When it comes to location on Richmond’s affluent northwest neighbourhoods, Granville is at the top of list for discriminating buyers. Lavish, palatial homes have replaced many of the original houses built on large lots and quiet streets between Granville and Blundell. A good selection of luxury townhomes and condominiums can be found in the Granville Avenue area. In addition, it’s just minutes to the exciting new Rivergreen Waterfront Community at the Richmond Oval, destined to be an iconic landmark of unprecedented design, style and distinction. The much desired Seafair neighbourhood of Richmond is at once peaceful and convenient for the urban dweller. Bordering the beautiful West Dyke Trail and the bird-watchers paradise of Sturgeon Banks, Seafair’s character is enhanced by wide boulevards and cozy cul-de-sacs. The Seafair Neighbourhood is home to all residential housing types including single family homes, townhomes and condominium complexes. Today many grand new homes are replacing houses from the 1960s, though many original homes still remain. The West Richmond Community Centre and Hugh Boyd Athletic Park offer residents a host of community sports and recreation including tennis, outdoor basketball and gyms. Quilchena is also composed of many single family homes on spacious manicured lots. An excellent selection of duplexes, townhomes and apartment style condos are also available in the Quilchena neighbourhood. Lifestyle benefits of Quilchena are obvious with the 18 hole Quilchena Golf and Country Club right in the neighbourhood. Best of all, an oceanside walk during a Quilchena sunset only adds to the neighbourhood’s best qualities.
