As Vancouverites move further east in search of affordability, Knight Street has grown into a popular East Van neighbourhood. The area is stitched in by Elgin Street, 15th Avenue, Fleming/Argyle Streets and 49th Avenue. Its central location makes for easy access to downtown and Richmond, in addition to the many transit routes that run through the area.
Current listings in the neighbourhood offer up mainly a selection of detached houses, with a smattering of condos and duplexes. Properties listed in Knight range from a condo starting at $435K to a five-bedroom house on the market for just shy of $2.2 million. In between are several duplexes listed between around $1 million and $1.4 million. All of the condos and duplexes on our list are under 10 years old, with a brand new and a two-year old home in the mix as well.
