SOLD CHARACTER. COZY. CENTRAL.
There are certain things that pique the interest of our design-driven hearts – and a quintessential Vancouver character home is certainly one of them. Built in 1911 and retaining many of the home’s original features, this light-filled abode has a beachy, coastal feel; cozy in the winter and breezy in the summer. Original heritage features abound including fir floors, banisters, doors, stained glass, a fireplace in the dining room, and oil-rubbed bronze and unlacquered brass hardware that have all survived the test of time. The navy and white kitchen was carefully remodeled to retain the style of an early 20th century home, and features exposed brick, tongue-and-groove ceilings, old growth fir counters and high end appliances by Liebherr, Jenn-Air, and Bertazzoni. Featuring four bedroom and two bathrooms, you can choose to occupy the whole house or close one stairway door and take advantage of the 2-bedroom lower suite as a mortgage helper.
Situated on a quiet tree-lined street, you’ll enjoy living in this picturesque and family-friendly ‘hood. For when you want a little action, the hustle and bustle of Commercial Drive and its eclectic mix of fun and forage is only a few minutes walk away. A small and easy-to-care-for mature English garden features a Catalpa which provides privacy, summer shade, and fragrant flowers. The classic front porch has room for your Adirondack chairs, and the spacious and sun-drenched back deck provides plenty of room for entertaining in the evenings. Character homes stand the test of time for a reason, and we think this one is pretty darn special.
