Kitsilano house description

During high season (May-Sept, Spring Break, Christmas) we have a 2 week minimum. We would also consider a home exchange! BRAND NEW charming 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bathroom, 1200 square foot cottage is in the Kitsilano neighborhood of Vancouver. The home is fully furnished with designer decor, stocked with kitchen supplies, fresh towels and linens, everything you could possibly need.

This adorable house has 2 levels, heated floors throughout, hardwood floors on main level, carpeted upstairs, gas fireplace, washer/dryer, wooden blinds, french doors, 4 deck/patio/garden areas, lush landscaping, central alarm system, each bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with a tub/shower, powder room main level, dining area, living room, kitchen with stainless appliances and granite counter tops, flatscreen TV and DVD/VCR player, central vacuum system, 2 stereos, tons of closet and dresser space, plenty of free off street parking. The home is very cozy, comfortable and quiet.

One bedroom has 2 twins beds, vaulted ceiling with antique chandelier, 2 large closets, 2 dressers, ensuite bathroom with gorgeous glass tile, high end fixtures, granite countertops, wooden vanity, cozy radiant wood heating and a small deck off bedroom. Second bedroom has a queen bed, large closet, dresser, ensuite bathroom featuring high end fixtures, granite countertops, wooden vanity and cozy radiant wood heating. Each bedroom has top of the line mattresses for total comfort. There is a couch, not a sofabed, in the living room and a double sized air mattress for additional sleeping and a pack/play crib for infants.

Open living room has 14' vaulted ceilings, lots of natural light streaming in from all sides, access to front and back patios through 2 sets of french doors, a gas fireplace and open dining area with chandelier. Gourmet kitchen comes with granite countertops, double undermount steel sinks, all stainless steel appliances with gas stove and lovely shaker wood cabinetry.

This carriage house is in the Kitsilano area which is the best location on the prestigious west side of Vancouver. The neighborhood is VIBRANT, safe, fun and filled with Victorian character homes, shops, cafes and parks. Walk to the grocery store in 2 minutes, a few blocks walk to Kits beach and pool (THE beach in the summer!), walk to 4th Avenue and Broadway which both have miles of shopping and restaurants, 5 minutes to downtown, 10 minutes to UBC, 1/2 block to bus line, walk everywhere!
Drive to 3 ski areas in 30 minutes (Grouse, Seymour or Cypress), Whistler/Blackcomb in 2 hours on the famous Sea to Sky highway, Seattle in 3 hours or Kelowna/Lake Okanagan region in 3 hours, ferry to Vancouver Island and visit Victoria, SO much to do!

This stunning property is another architectural masterpiece by award-winning Alexandre Ravkov, Vancouver's renowned heritage conversion and restoration expert. The coach house is a stand alone single family dwelling sitting at the back of a fully landscaped 50 x 112 lot with manicured yards and stone-paved walkways all around. Homeowners live in the fully modernized and completely restored Victorian main house at the front of the property. Through the side walk, you approach the backyard which is your front yard complete with a separate paved front patio and proper front porch.

Included is phone, hi-speed wireless internet, water, power, cable. Free local calls.
