Living in Langley

Located in an awe-inspiringly beautiful region that’s been dubbed Mighty Fraser Country, Langley is composed of a colourful mosaic of communities and is at once urban, suburban, rural and historic.

Less than an hour’s drive southeast from downtown Vancouver, the city and township of Langley are spread out on a rolling landscape of lush woods, meandering waterways, expansive farms and wineries, and vibrant urban centres. The Fraser River serves as the area’s northern boundary, with Washington State to the south, Surrey to the west, and Abbotsford to the east.

Known as the “birthplace of British Columbia,” Langley – or more specifically Fort Langley – was where the proclamation that declared B.C. a colony was read in 1858. Numerous heritage sites can be found throughout the area, including historic landmarks, buildings and museums. Langley is also famous for being the horse capital of B.C. and has an abundance of horse farms as well as vineyards, berry farms, orchards, and so on.

Langley’s real estate options are as diverse as its array of communities and neighbourhoods. Buyers can opt for condos within minutes from downtown Langley City, townhouses in Willoughby and Willowbrook, comfortable single-family homes in Murrayville, sprawling equestrian estates and country retreats, and more.
