                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: We have lived in this house for 12 years and recently completed the garden suite for others to enjoy. As residents of Vancouver for 20+ years, we know the city and surroundings well and are happy to assist our guests plan their travels in Vancouver and surrounding areas.

                      Why the Owner Chose Grandview-Woodland:
                      We are steps away from a major public transit hub, which can take you downtown in 10 minutes or across the city. There is no better transit hub in all of Vancouver. If you have a car with you, you can get to the highway to go north or east in no time. Local ski mountains are 45 minutes away, beaches are less than 20 minutes away, and we are a 7 minute walk to the best Saturday Farmers Market in SW British Columbia (May thru October).
