Our Home was originally built on 1911 by a Gold Prospector by the name of Shindler, after He had built it, a group of local Dr's approached Him and bought and it functioned as The Charlton Hospital, the only other information I have is that it was Dr. Telford's Baby Hospital around 1939-1943. That is a bit of history. By way of my background I was a nurse, and worked in the OR at Vancouver General which is a 8 min walk from here, When I purchased the property 14 years ago, I was not aware of the History. I am offering a Ground level Suite for rent. I live on the top floor of the Home. The suite is very bright with 9 foot ceilings, there are many large window, so it is very bright. there is a big living Room, Bedroom with queen bed and large closet.the Kitchen is fully equipped.There is a queen pull out couch, therefore room for a family with a child, I also have a double air mattress which children love. The entrance is of the garden, there is a table and chairs, which one can use to enjoy the many different plants . Property sits on four major bus routes and also is a few blocks away from a bike route. You are within walking distance of most beaches and shopping and Restaurants along South Granville. There is bike storage and a car parking area. The property is close to four major hospitals and medical research centers(VGH,Children's, Cancer Clinic, Women's, G.F.Strong,St Paul's) The suite is also close to world known Granville Island (about a 15 min walk) Come in the winter and you can hit the local mountains to sky, snowboard or snowshoe.
