Caulfeild was founded back in 1898, when Francis William Caulfeild landed at Skunk Cove (now Caulfeild Cove), just east of Lighthouse Park, and created a community in this lush forest setting. The community's focal points are Lighthouse Park for recreation and Caulfeild Shopping Centre for shopping needs. Cypress Park Estates is another neighbourhood in the Caulfeild area that is above the Upper Levels and adjacent to Cypress Falls Park.
Caulfeild is arguably one of the most beautiful residential neighbourhoods in Vancouver. Houses in Caulfeild and Cypress Park are strategically located on the bluffs and ridges that are a part of the natural landscape of West Vancouver. Each home is unique, and carefully designed to fit on the lot. Homes have been built to maximize the incredible views. Because these streets and homes are built into the rugged hillsides, the grid layout followed in the eastern parts of West Vancouver is no longer used for the road layout. Most of the homes here are single family detached with a small number of duplexes or multi-family residences. Please contact us to search for real estate in Caulfeild.
