Burnaby house description

Haddon House, located in Metro Vancouver, offers you a rare opportunity to vacation in one of the world's most beautiful cities while staying in a quiet, upscale neighbourhood of million dollar homes. Only 25 minutes from the excitement of downtown Vancouver, this elegant 4.5 star rated heritage home is a peaceful haven just steps from Burnaby's Deer Lake.

This award-winning, 2600 sq. ft. home is luxuriously furnished with modern amenities and surrounded by views of British Columbia's Coastal Mountains. The Dutch Colonial style of this professionally decorated 3-bedroom (4th bed in library) and 3.5 bathroom heritage designated home was lovingly maintained throughout a complete renovation in 2007. Updated to offer you modern amenities such as wireless internet throughout, in-floor bathroom heating, pillow-top mattresses, and flat-panel televisions in each bedroom, Haddon House provides the perfect setting for your corporate retreat or family vacation.

All three bedrooms are elegantly furnished with a king or queen size bed, plush armchairs and air conditioning. There are three bathrooms, two of which are ensuite, as well as a powder room off the main floor.

In the library (4th bedroom) you will find a host of tourist information; a desk with phone, laptop, printer and wireless internet access as well as a guest pantry with cooled beverages. On the main floor, the dining and living rooms seat 8 guests comfortably, with a baby grand piano, handsome fireplace and beautiful garden views. Cooks will delight in the gourmet kitchen spaciously designed with a professional range, stainless steel appliances and a cozy breakfast nook. Enjoy the vast rear deck outfitted with a natural gas barbeque and plenty of seating area. There is ample room for parking and the estate-sized gardens are lush, yet useable.

One block from Haddon House lies Deer Lake - one of Metro Vancouver's best-kept secrets with its abundance of walking and biking trails, canoe and pedal- or rowboat rentals and picnic areas. Also within easy walking distance is the area's cultural hub with live performances taking place year-round including outdoor summer concerts. Drive a short 7 minutes to British Columbia's largest shopping mall (Metropolis at Metrotown), or park your car for the day and take a 20-minute Skytrain ride into the heart of Vancouver's downtown.

While you vacation at Haddon House you’re free to have exclusive use of all the home has to offer. There is a separate self-contained hosts' suite in the basement, permitting the hosts to offer you complete privacy but also additional complimentary concierge services, if desired - the best of both worlds.

Our gourmet kitchen comes fully stocked with an initial supply of all basic food staples, including milk, cream, eggs, sugar, coffee, tea, flour, breakfast cereals and condiments (jam etc) as well as a large supply of soft drinks. It is also equipped with stainless steel appliances, a Miele dishwasher, French style refrigerator, toaster oven, blender, kettle, coffee maker, coffee grinder, warming drawer and convection oven.

Come to enjoy Vancouver and get the best of your stay at beautiful Haddon House and its lush surroundings.
