Kits Point Real Estate

In terms of Real Estate, Kits Point has a lot of great options. The streets have a wonderful, quiet neighbourhood feel (for the most part, the only people driving through the streets live in Kits Point) with large trees and well kept character houses – whether West Coast 70’s Modern or Classic Kitsilano Character Homes. Lots of these homes have mountain views from the upper floors, and many of the homes were built to take advantage of this.

Kits Point has maintained a lower density, with only a few low rise condo buildings, generally found on the outer edges of the neighbourhood. Otherwise you can find single detached houses, row homes, townhomes and many duplexes. With Henry Hudson Elementary south across Cornwall Ave, this is a great family neighbourhood.

Street parking is widely available, and in many areas, is restricted to residents who live in the block.

Kits Point Condos

All of the condos in Kits Point are older (circa late 1970’s) low rise, wood frame buildings. There are only a few notable buildings, particularly Cypress West at 1425 Cypress, Walnut Place at 1424 Walnut and Kitsilano Point at 1450 Laburnum (click each building name to see current units for sale.

These buildings offer 1 and 2 bedrooms units, with the lower end units priced around $300k and and bigger, renovated units averaging between $400k and $600k. Though the building’s look older, as long as they have been maintained you can be confident in purchasing in these buildings. Given the location to downtown and the rest of Kitsilano, these units can be great investment properties for those looking to rent out a unit.
