Welcome to Mackenzie Heights

Welcome to Mackenzie Heights….one of the most sought-after (and exclusive) locations in the west side – and for good reason.

This gem of a neighbourhood is known for its unique tree-lined mix of modern architectural masterpieces as well as beautiful stately homes, attracting all kinds of design tastes. There is truly something for everyone. Situated just north of Arbutus Ridge, and originally owned by Canadian Pacific Railway, Mackenzie Heights is centrally located, offering easy access into the downtown core and its surrounding areas.

Residents enjoy large private lots akin to that of a secluded location on the outskirts of the city, but with the heart of a bustling metropolis.

In need of some nature therapy? Just minutes away lives the expansive greenery that is Pacific Spirit Regional Park. And let’s not forget its proximity to the picturesque sandy beaches that gives Vancouverites some serious bragging rights.

Along with quaint small businesses frequented by Mackenzie Heights’ locals, some other location features include Balaclava Park for the dog-lovers, UBC and YVR, not to mention several impressive golf courses to choose from in the area. This neighbourhood truly lends itself those who enjoy both active and leisurely lifestyles.

For families in search of superior education programs, Mackenzie Heights is but a short drive from some of the finest public and private schools in Vancouver, including Crofton House, Little Flower Academy, St. George’s, York House and the Vancouver College.

As with many Vancouver neighbourhoods, changes are taking place – and in some instances, they can have a major impact on the dynamic and feel of an area.

In recent years, there’s been an increase in the construction of new townhome and condo developments, raising the question of whether a shift to denser housing options can allow Mackenzie Heights to retain its much-loved, elegant old-world feel.

Anyone taking a scenic drive through Mackenzie Heights will notice the significant change in the style of homes being built. Many of the large, older homes that have stood tall for over 80 years, are slowly being replaced with equally large single-family homes built for the modern family.

In addition to new family homes, laneway homes have grown increasingly popular over the last few years, providing owners with additional space for family members or renters.

With its luxurious style, private feel and endless features, Mackenzie Heights remains among the most desirable areas to live, in Vancouver.
