Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We have lived on the North Shore for 20 years and have come to love the breadth of activity and beauty that it offers. When we found this home we immediately fell in love with the location and setting. We will one day move into this wonderful home when we become empty-nesters. For now, this great location and setting are yours to enjoy.

Why the Owner Chose Lower Lonsdale (Vancouver, BC, Canada):
The home allows one to get away from it all and still be close to all the attractions Vancouver has to offer. Whether you want to hike the local mountains or wine and dine downtown, you will be close to it all.

The Unique Benefits at this House Boat:
Enjoy nature and city living in one convenient location. This tranquil, modern, float home is a unique and memorable experience. Located in the outdoor playground of the North Shore with easy access to downtown Vancouver. Easy access to numerous mountain trails, three local ski hills, Whistler and Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal. A twelve minute sea bus ride to downtown, the Canada line and Vancouver International Airport. Foodies will enjoy the walk to the Quay for fresh, local seafood and produce that can be brought back and prepared in a gourmet kitchen. There is a workshop on the lower level for storing your bikes or tuning your skis. Power up the Sonos and enjoy your favourite music as you work.
