Sophisticated style or 'Hip and urbane'. However you describe this home, it has the WOW factor in a big way! A truly unique home, designed in the signature CHRISP style by an award winning, nationally registered interior designer.

Our location is a walker's paradise. The 7th Avenue bike riding path through Vancouver is just outside your door.

The trendy area known as South Granville is at your doorstep with sleek boutiques/dining hotspots/live theatre/international home retailers/antique dealers and casual cafes.
