West Point Grey house description

A comfortable and artistic character home in the quiet, safe, tree-lined residential neighborhood of Point Grey.

1,850 square feet on two levels. The main level has living room with large bay window looking out to Vancouver's famous mountains; dining room with expanding round table (perfect for those dinner parties); master bedroom with a comfortable pillow top king bed, kitchen (see description below); newly renovated bathroom and a peaceful den with large flat screen TV and sofa bed.

The ground floor level has a large open office with a wrap-around work station and printer provided; a family area with sectional couch and TV; queen & double bedrooms, artistically tiled bathroom with shower and a laundry room with new washer & dryer.

Throughout, you will be surrounded by beautiful paintings and original art work with unique area carpets on beautiful hardwood floors.
The recently renovated bright, south facing kitchen is gourmet equipped and boasts a gas stove with a cozy eating area which opens onto a large deck overlooking an evergreen and private backyard.

A 10 minute walk to the Village of West 10th Avenue with many unique neighborhood shops, a Safeway, casual & gourmet restaurants, coffee shops, a wine merchant and a public library. We are a 5 minute walk to public transit or drive to the heart of downtown in just 20 minutes. Only 3 blocks away is a clean and bright public pool and open, well equipped gym. There are many parks and hiking / biking trails close by in our famous Pacific Spirit Park, or stroll the local beaches which are a 15 minute walk away. Also, we are just 10 minutes to the University of British Columbia and are close to many reputable public and private schools.

              Year Purchased: 1984

              About the owner: Hello: We are a semi-retired professional couple in our mid 60's from Vancouver, Can. Last year we spent 3 months in Guatemala (studying Spanish and working as volunteers) and loved it! It is our intention to continue our spanish studies with the goal of being able to communicate so we can effectively join a Guatemalan volunteer organization. This year we have extended our time away to 4 months and, when home, we love to spend time in our cabin on a local gulf island.
