The Kingswood-Shaughnessy is a grand residence in the European tradition, an extraordinary blend of modern luxury and Old World precision and craftsmanship.

This collection of 18 finely crafted custom homes is a true work of art, a cluster of exquisite jewels unlike any other. There are no higher standards in the world than those found at The Kingswood.

This is uptown living at its best. The Kingswood-Shaughnessy sits at the edge of Vancouver's most esteemed residential neighbourhood, First Shaughnessy, an area reminiscent of New York's Central Park West, London's Mayfair District, or San Francisco's Nob Hill. Within a block are the Meinhardt Fine Foods gourmet grocery store, the Arts Club's Stanley Theatre, an impressive assortment of retail shops and restaurants, as well as several tiny art and antique galleries. Across the street is the prestigious Vancouver Lawn Tennis and Badminton Club.
From the spectacular columns of curved glass topped with titanium-zinc shingled roof domes to cut-stone pilasters and traditional balustrades, The Kingswood-Shaughnessy has all the amenities of a fine European hotel. Rarely found today, the highest standards of design and construction are fundamental to The Kingswood-Shaughnessy's creation. Like the great edifices of the past, enduring into the future.
To live year-round in the style of the world's most discriminating hotels - relaxed, pampered, secure. The concierge greets you and your guests, receives your deliveries, and monitors the building and grounds via the closed-circuit cameras.
All homes have been pre-wired with advanced data, telephone, cable, satellite and audio distribution systems. The latest trends in high-speed data access (cable, ADSL, digital TV) have been accommodated by versatile, high standard suite wiring that will serve the needs of the most discriminating user.
Gracefully landscaped, like an English country estate, the impressive Kingswood-Shaughnessy grounds combine private and common gardens. From the balconies above or walkways below, carefully tended plants and flowers provide a sheltered pastoral setting throughout the year.
