About the Property

Basement suite - 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Come and enjoy a charming garden suite in a private Kerrisdale home. Private entrance - completely self contained. Start your stay with a complementary hostess tray of coffee & tea.

Freshly redone with urban style and modern simplicity. This suite has all the comforts of home, whether for one week or longer. Enjoy the quiet and ambience of one of Vancouver's loveliest neighborhoods. Long desired for it's friendly community minded residents, highly regarded schools, close proximity to downtown, UBC, 5 golf courses, fine restaurants, grocery stores, shops and of course the beaches.

Wonderfully situated minutes away from Pacific Spirit Park, a wilderness forest next to the city for walking, biking or horseback riding. Take the children to Jericho Beach 8 minutes away by car, and rent a windsurfer or kayak to explore the bay or join Vancouverites as they walk, jog or bike the 22 miles of seawall taking in the mountains, ocean and city view in all it's breathtaking beauty.

One block to the bus, will take you downtown in 20 minutes for shopping, theaters, nightclubs and Stanley Park.

Pick up groceries and fresh meats at the Heights corner store, hand rolled artisan bread at Bigsby's or lovely desserts at Butter, just around the corner or stroll into Kerrisdale to enjoy Vancouver cuisine with it's growing Asian influence and commitment to a West Coast emphasis on freshness. You can't beat the variety of restaurants or modest cost in Canadian Dollars.

This centrally located suite is close to many olympic facilities: 4 miles to Curling, 5 Miles to Ice Sledge & ice hockey at UBC, 7 miles to speed skating and 5 miles to the opening/closing facilities and the hockey tournament. All these venues just minutes away by car, with just one bus directly to downtown/UBC and the skytrain.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: We're two active adults with daughts just staring their careers who live independently. My husband is an avid sailor enjoying windsurfing, standup paddling and sailing at Jericho Beach.

Why the Owner Chose Arbutus Ridge, Vancouver, BC, Canada:
We purchased a home in this area because it's a lovely friendly neighbourhood. A quiet, safe, tree lined residential area with very good schools and close proximity to downtown and to the beaches and park.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Excellent butcher/grocery store and Butter bakery/ tea shop just around the corner. Try Bigsby's for artesian bread yummy luncheon soups and sandwiches across from the grocery store.
