Capilano Homes for Sale
Named after the famous suspension bridge in North Vancouver, the neighbourhood of Capilano rivals its namesake's natural splendor, with three sides bordered by the North Saskatchewan River Valley and Gold Bar Park. Though some new construction has taken place in recent years, the majority of Capilano homes for sale were built by the 1960s. As a result, Capilano real estate exists in a well-established neighborhood that focuses on a central community park featuring tennis courts, an outdoor skating rink, and the community school. The majority of Capilano homes for sale are single-family bungalows with detached garages, though the occasional two-storey home appears for sale as well.

About Capilano Homes For Sale
The Capilano real estate market is dominated by single-family bungalows built during the 1950s, classic family homes that typically offer three or four bedrooms stretched over at least 1,200 square feet. With brick and vinyl exteriors, these homes have the old Edmonton feel that comes of living in a mature neighbourhood, but they've also been typically upgraded in ways that the original residents may never have imagined. While many of the homes in Capilano have been modernized from the original fit and finish, there is still quite a number that maintain their original charm and are open to renovation and upgrades. In this way, the community offers a lot of potential for buyers looking to make it their own.
Because established, central neighbourhoods like this one have long been in demand, Capilano homes for sale almost always include sophisticated features and tasteful accents that are meant to attract discerning buyers. Among the many great features you'll find in these listings are:

- Floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace
