mountain view ) for the least price?



Thanks

;-) ;-) ;-) ;-) "least price" is a relative term in Vancouver.

In Vancouver, Fraser Heights has a nice view northwards (n. of 41st/37th
in the Main/Fraser/Victoria/Knight area and is less pricey than similar
areas to the west; you have to shop around for the height of land and
whether the house has unobstructed views northwards; the views of the
mountains from the heights of the southern half of the east side can be
spectacular; you're nowhere near the beach, though. An area called
Vancouver Heights but which is actually in Burnaby - e. of the 2nd
Narrows bridge and n. of Hastings to Capitol Hill (Holdom) plus the area
just east of that - Westridge - all have fine views, depending on the
house, as does the last slope of Vancouver between the freeway and
Boundary Road.

North Surrey has some good northward views, too, but I wouldn't
recommend it in general as an area to live in; the south slope North
Delta (s. of 72nd/64th) has view properties that overlook Boundary Bay
and the San Juans; but finding a premium view there ain't too easy and
it's probably pricey.
