This stunning Kitsilano classic craftsman-style family home will impress. Ideally located, and meticulously maintained over the years by its proud owners.
Originally constructed in 1917, this charming heritage home provides outstanding curb appeal. Two beautiful mature growth Sawara Cypress trees flank either side, and numerous heritage attributes, both exterior, and interior have been lovingly restored.
Four bedrooms and two full baths are provided on the upper level, a powder room on the main, and a fully contained and updated lower level suite is featured.
Architectural and design features include wainscot throughout, 9’ 2” coffered ceilings in principal rooms, maple hardwood flooring throughout the main level, and original fir flooring on the upstairs level. A focal wood burning fireplace, complete with built-ins on either side for firewood and home entertainment system, is featured in the living area. The generous open floor plan of this home makes it conducive for everyday living and entertaining.
Abundant natural light throughout with South, East, West, and North exposures, and pleasant vistas are enjoyed with the lush and mature landscaping that surrounds the property.
The welcoming kitchen, adjacent from the family room, features an eating area, updated appliances, gas cook-top, stainless steel and butcher block counters, an integral sink, and two full-height, folding glazed doors which can be opened entirely to the private outdoors.
The upstairs bathrooms are beautifully appointed and spa-like, with mosaic wall tile, Duravit wall hung sink, rain showerheads, Nuheat floors, and a six-foot tub.
Abundant storage is provided, measuring 375 sq. ft. and not included in the overall size of the home. A well-positioned fitness / recreation room is accessed from the main house, and the lower suite of this home offers a multitude of uses.
The tranquility of this home and setting is evident upon the first visit, and the proximity to nearby conveniences is superb.
