Mount Pleasant house description

This restored, charming and intimate Victorian home is the owners’ winter residence and is ideal if you want to stay away from commercial properties. The residence occupies about 2000 sq ft of the main and second floor of a four storey Victorian Home, and is available from May to October. It can accommodate a small group or up to nine guests, but you will be charged only for the number of bedrooms you use and the number of guests in your party and will have the exclusive use of the residence.

The house is located off Broadway and Clark, in a very quiet and tidy homeowner occupied neighbourhood.
Centrally located, this residence is two short blocks away from Broadway, a main artery that allows easy connection to UBC University, the beaches and the downtown area on one side and Commercial Avenue, with its famous café and restaurants, on the other side.

It is two blocks away from Clark, your fastest connection to the airport and to Freeway 99 to Seattle; one block away from 12th Ave, the direct connection to Trans-Canada Highway 1.

The residence retains its original stained glass windows and is furnished with antiques and family heirlooms.
You will relax in the evening breeze on the deck, ready for a candlelight dinner or for a fun barbeque and will enjoy a lovely view of the city and the mountains from the master bedroom and bathroom.
Custom-made beds, two-hundred-counts 100% cotton linen and custom made mattresses will insure you the best comfort while you sleep.
The professional kitchen features custom made cabinets, marble counter top, professional gas stove, fridge, dishwasher, upright freezer, microwave, all the utensils.
In one of the bathrooms you will soak in bubbles floating in the original bear-claw-foot tub.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1998

                      About the owner: We are two architects, originally from Italy, where we return every year. This is our winter residence in Canada. When we saw this house, twelve years ago, we knew we had found the right home for us.

                      Why the Owner Chose Mount Pleasant:
                      The quiet neighbour, the balanced location between two main commercial arteries — Main St and Commercial St — the easy accessibility to downtown, UBC, the beaches, the airport have made this location a perfect choice for us.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      In addition to that, our home had to be flexible, organized, comfortable, and had to have the beauty and warmth of an historical building.
