Countryside Woods Neighborhood Real Estate
Covering approximately one third of a square mile, the unique Countryside Woods neighborhood lies at the Eastern edge of Vancouver’s city limits and is known for its serene rural atmosphere and annual holiday light displays. Countryside Woods also enjoys immediate access to commercial and entertainment districts, making shopping, dining and daily errands effortless for residents of this bucolic neighborhood.
The outer section of what is now Countryside Woods was developed in the early 1980s, with the subsequent Scott’s Landing, Grand Firs, Scott’s Manor, Maple Place and eponymous Countryside subdivisions being constructed later by various developers. These, along with nearly 800 single family homes, the historic Fisher’s Grange hall, local house of worship, gravel pit and abundance of old growth evergreen trees create a relaxed, traditional feel in this burgeoning urban neighborhood.
Countryside Park, the neighborhood’s primary day park, features a children’s playground, picnic area, benches and acres of open lawns for family get-togethers and impromptu neighborhood gatherings.
Residents of Countryside Woods take great pride in their excellent schools, great natural beauty and lively mix of new neighbors and longtime homeowners that mark this area as one of the nicer, more desirable places in the city to call home.
Bordered by Blandford Drive to the West and Divine Road to the East, the centrally located DuBois Park neighborhood is a well established residential area featuring a variety of charming mid-century and early 1970s era homes. Most of the homes in this area are owner occupied and have been immaculately maintained by the many families and older residents that have lived in the neighborhood for years.
The 3.5 acre DuBois Neighborhood Park was originally developed as part of a post-WWII subdivision, and today features an open lawn, picnic tables, woodland, a children’s playground and one of the Blanford Canyon Nature Trail trailheads.
Similar in style and atmosphere to the nearby upper middle class Evergreen Highlands neighborhood, DuBois Park enjoys a quiet country feel, abundance of attractive, affordable homes and easy access to nearby retail and recreational destinations. Safe streets and proximity to excellent schools are just a few more reasons residents take such great pride in this lovely neighborhood.
