Neighbourhood Spotlight: Elgin Chantrell

(March 13, 2017 )



One of the most desirable areas on the peninsula, this area is composed of well planned developments, single family homes and prestigious waterfront estates. It was originally a stage stop in the late 1800’s and is now close to many bustling shopping areas, golf courses and parks. Crescent Beach is right nearby, adding to the appeal of the location, while the trendier White Rock beach is just a short drive away. Tall cedars throughout the area add charm and privacy for a true Pacific Northwest feel. This is a family centric area with 20% more sunshine than the Vancouver area.

There are 4 elementary schools in the immediate area: Chantrell Creek, Crescent Park, Semiahmoo Trail, and Ray Shepard. There are two high school catchments in the area: Semiahmoo Secondary which offers the IB (International Baccalaureate®) program for the academic elite students, as well as Earl Marriott Secondary which offers French Immersion.
