What Makes East Hill so special?

East Hill neighbourhood – do you live here?

I have lived in East Hill since moving to Vernon in 1996 and love the neighbourhood. It has a good feel to it with a mix of heritage homes, lots of 1960’s and 1970’s bungalows, some upscale townhouses and a smattering of new homes. There are some apartments and multi-family developments in the neighbourhood although most of them are either on Pleasant Valley road, or along 32 avenue. It is one of the larger neighbourhoods in Vernon and is also one of the oldest.

According to my Realtor neighbourhood map East Hill runs from Highway 6 in the south to Silver Star road in the north. It follows 27 street up to the courthouse on 30 avenue and then follows on the east side of Pleasant Valley road to Silver star road. The boundary on the east is supposed to be 15 street which runs by VSS, but most people use Frances road.

East Hill is close to the downtown, especially if you live south of 32th avenue. It is not uncommon to see East Hill residents in this area walking to the downtown core for some entertainment or a good meal.

The neighbourhood has some excellent schools such as VSS and Silver Star elementary. If you have children going to high school within the next two years they will get to experience the brand new VSS that is being built right now.

There is the Vernon Community music school on 18 street that contains a wonderful heritage home and carriage house on the property. It has had some excellent renovations to the carriage house. Right now, they are looking at the cost and feasability to repair some of the foundation on the main home.

There are a couple of convenience stores in the area around VSS, however Fatboys has just burned down so the only one operating right now is Lakeside Market on 15 street.

There is the famous “peanut pool” at Lakeview park which also has a number of baseball diamonds and play areas. It is a lovely oasis to spend a lazy sunny afternoon. There is a small circle park on 26 crescent that is mainly used by the neighbours in that area.

All in all East Hill has a wide variety of homes for almost every taste. If you don’t live in East Hill, but want to know more about this great neighbourhood, then give me a call.
