The Heartbeat of Murrayville
Murrayville is one of the most sought after areas to live in and is just east of Langley City.
Murrayville is broken into upper and lower Murrayville based on the geography of where on the hill that the community sits. It is appealing to seniors due to the proximity to Langley Memorial Hospital and has lower crime with RCMP Detachment flagging both sides of Fraser Highway, smack dab in the middle of the town.
There are many independent small local businesses in Murrayville for any quick stop essentials. You’ll want to drive into Langley City if you are looking to load up on groceries
Murrayville At A Glance
The “Pleasantville” vibe
There is a sense of pride coming from the neighbours in this community. It’s very rare to see an unkempt yard or litter on the streets. Many residents have lived in Murrayville since their home was originally built. Single family homes are now being sold by seniors to younger families that come in and put a little love and update the houses. Many seniors choose to stay in Murrayville as it has been a great place and a safe area for many years.
There are not a lot of options but there is at least one of everything you need here, from small local coffee shops, sushi restaurants and fast food, to drug stores and banks. Murrayville is its own little community that centers around Langley Hospital and the RCMP detachment.
Murrayville real estate market is a nice mixture of condos, townhouses, and single family detached homes.
Mostly built in the 1990s, the lot sizes tend to be smaller but the homes are larger with very few basement suites. The properties are all serviced with water, hydro and most have gas. There has been recent development of new condos and townhouses just off of Fraser Highway.
There is always plenty of street parking in this well-planned community.
Seniors love Murrayville due to its proximity to the hospital and the RCMP Detachment helps keep crime down.
There are many townhouses that were built with a master bedroom on the main floor to market to the popularity of senior living.
Murrayville is a very friendly neighborhood with plenty of room to take the dog for a walk. Don’t be surprised if nearly every neighbor says hello or passes a friendly wave in your direction.
We are seeing a trend of young families buying 1990s detached homes and updating them to their needs and taste. Once someone moves to Murrayville, they stay for a very long time.
Murrayville has everything you need, all walkable if you live in a condo or a townhouse. For detached homes, you’ll want to have a vehicle.

How you’ll spend your weekends…
Hanging out at one of the many parks, or going for a swim at WC Blair pool. Grabbing dinner at a local sushi restaurant or some wings and a beer at the Murrayville Pub.
Your entertainment & restaurant situation…
A good selection of small restaurants with a variety of cuisine options, or grab some Quiznos or a Teen Burger for a quick fix.

Take the dog for a walk around the beautiful neighbourhoods. You’ll get some amazing sunsets from the top of the hill.
Hobbies you can pick up…
Flying! Take some pilot aviation lessons from the airport just down the street. Don’t worry; it’s just a small airport so the noise isn’t really noticeable.
What You'll Love
One of my favourite parts of Murrayville is the shops at Five Corners. Five Corners is a historic corner that was recently converted into a roundabout. Lower Murrayville houses Porters Bistro, one of the most charming cafes in all of Langley and has become the community hub of Murrayville. It even hosts live music on Friday nights. Across the street there is a wonderful bakery called Tracycakes, well known for its “High Tea” and its freshly baked scones and 40 different flavours of cupcakes.
Just 5 minutes up the hill you’ll find Murrayville Pub serving beers, burgers, and bites in a low-key atmosphere. It’s a local treasure with great long-time staff and service.
What You Might Not Like
Because of Murrayville’s location a little farther East, the access to Highway 1 or Highway 99 can take a little longer for commuters. Being close to the hospital, the airport, and the RCMP detachment, there are more sirens and aircraft noise than you would typically find.

The Rental Market
You don’t often find many rentals in Murrayville as many of the condos and townhouses are older and the strata has rental restrictions. Rental rates would typically be a little higher here to coincide with property values of the area and the proximity to the hospital.

Murrayville is lacking a strong bus network and bus accessibility.
No problem finding taxis/rideshares – especially with the hospital so close.
You’re a 25 minute bus or car ride away from the closest Skytrain.
Almost all errands require a car.
There is lots of transit that runs through Aldergrove, especially closer to Fraser Highway. However, the farther you live from that, the fewer transit options you will have.
Aldergrove is flat as a pancake and there are good bike lanes throughout.
