Southwest Marine, located in Vancouver’s expensive West Side, is home to sprawling properties and panoramas of the Fraser River. Located to the north of its namesake Southwest Marine Drive, the area is edged by 49th Avenue to the north and West Boulevard to the east. The area also borders moneyed Vancouver neighbourhoods Kerrisdale and South Granville. With a decidedly secluded vibe, despite its central location, the area is largely residential and dominated by single-family homes.
These detached homes, of which there are currently 17 on the market, range from just under $2.5 million to almost $10 million. Six condos are currently listed also varying widely from the low to the high end of the market. The two townhomes currently listed are both featured below, and are not too far apart in price.
