Lynn Valley Real Estate

The Natural Beauty of Lynn Valley     Lynn Valley is a neighbourhood in North Vancouver located between Mount Fromme and Mount Seymour just North of Highway 1. Lynn Valley is named after a British Royal Engineer by the name of John Linn who made the area his home in 1869.

     The heart of Lynn Valley is known as Lynn Valley Village and is centered at the intersection of Lynn Valley Road and Mountain Highway. Home to a brand new library and town centre designed by Gregory Henriquez, a Canadian architect known for mixed-use community-based buildings. The Lynn Valley Shopping Centre is home to a wide variety of shops and restaurants as well as the North Vancouver Public Library.

     The community of Lynn Valley prides itself with a close tie to nature as it is well situated between the North Shore Mountains and has great access to Lynn Canyon Park’s 620 acres of spectacular second-growth rainforest. Locals and tourists alike frequent the large range of hiking trails, treks across the Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge and fishing at Rice Lake.

     Lynn Valley has long been considered a family-oriented neighbourhood where many young families reside. It is popular among first-time homebuyers due to its more modestly priced real estate relative to much of North Vancouver. New condo and townhouse developments along the major routes in Lynn Valley has led to some recent densification in the area.

     This North Vancouver neighbourhood is located in the high school catchment of Argyle Secondary, which is one of the highest rated secondary schools in North Vancouver. Visit our website to Compare North Vancouver Schools.

*Some homes are listed as being built in the year 9999 when the owner does not know the actual age of the house. As as result, the statistics are skewed. I do not count any homes listed as such under Year Built, and therefore the actual Year Built is likely a few years older than demonstrated.
