Soaked in History

Bordered by 16th Ave. to the north, and 41st Ave. to the South, Shaughnessy was the first neighbourhood that had the ability to densify. Created in 1907 by the Canadian Pacific Railway, who provided aggressive marketing, highly regulated development, and a strong degree of exclusiveness, developing one of the most beautiful residential neighbourhoods in Canada.

The Land at 1763 W. 38th was originally owned by Richard B. Angus. Richard Bladworth Angus (28 May 1831 – 17 September 1922) was a Scottish-Canadian financier, banker, and philanthropist. He was a co-founder and vice-president of the Canadian Pacific Railway; President of the Bank of Montreal.

1928 – Construction of 1763 W. 38th Avenue completed, house first owned/occupied by Archdeacon Frances Cooke Caulfield Heathcote and his wife Evelyn M. Heathcote. Sir Frances Cooke Caulfield Heathcote, 9th Baronet (1868–1961) was an Anglican cleric, and 4th Bishop of New Westminster. He was appointed Archdeacon of Vancouver in 1913.
