Gilmore Real Estate is very exclusive, and home sale prices are higher than in other Richmond areas. Many homes truly are mansions and architecturally impressive. A buyer of a home in the Gilmore area benefits from the openness of the country setting yet is conveniently close to all urban amenities. It truly is the best of both worlds. Schools for the area include Maple Lane Elementary and Steveston-London Secondary.
A considerable number of acres in Richmond remain as farm land and a large amount of this precious resource is located in the Gilmore area. This is a relatively unpopulated region due to the crop farmland and acreages on which homes are situated. Much of it remains in the ALR; buyers of Gilmore Real Estate look for acres of land and an opportunity to live on a country estate within city boundaries.
A good portion of the preserved heritage sites in Richmond are in the Gilmore area and help preserve the distinct historic rural character. A drive south down No 3 Rd and left onto Dyke Road will showcase the Pioneer Church, Shepherd and McNair Barns, Gilmore Potato Pit and Finn Slough, to name a few.
