Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I've lived and worked all over the world but Vancouver has been home since 2003. I work in financial services and have a unique specialty in philanthropy. I have two children, a boy and a girl, and our home reflects the many happy times we spend here. We love this neighbourhood! It is so easy for the kids to get around, have their friends over, get downtown if they want to, and if necessary head out to grab some takeaway for dinner! We hope you will enjoy your time in Vancouver as much as we do!

Why the Owner Chose Kitsilano:
We have lived in Shaughnessy, Kerrisdale, Dunbar and now Kitsilano (Kits). As the kids got older, we wanted to be closer to public transportation, shopping, restaurants and so on, so that they could be more independent (safely!). This part of South Kitsilano/Lower Shaughnessy is just far enough from the beach to evade traffic and noise, especially in the summer months, whilst still being close enough to walk. This is our family home.
