Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I came to Vancouver in the 1970's on my way around the world, fell in love with the city and never left. The first day I arrived here was glorious sunshine then it rained for 30 days but gradually the sun came out again and I could see those glorious mountains. I also got a job with Canadian Airlines which was a great company full of like minded people who liked to travel. I still love Vancouver, especially Kitsilano with it's vibrancy, diversity, great restaurants, bike routes and close to everything Vancouver has to offer.

Why the Owner Chose Kitsilano (Kitsilano, Vancouver, BC, Canada):
I've lived in Vancouver since the 1970's and usually close to Kitsilano but have always loved Kitsilano and moved there in 2006. I also like to renovate and this 1920's house definitely needed some TLC but the location was good and it was very liveable. We patched her up and enjoyed living there while we made plans for a major renovation. In 2013 we embarked on a 1 year renovation to turn it into a Kitsilano gem. Everything is new but as one of my neighbours said it looks about 100 years old, in a good way. We kept the Kitsilano charm but with all the modern conveniences. It was a lot of work but also a lot of fun and I am very much enjoying living in my "new" house.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Kitsilano is close to everything you want to do in Vancouver but the street we live on is quiet and neighbourly. The house is a few steps away from a bike route that will take you on a nice ride West to Jericho beach, Jericho sailing club, Spanish Banks and UBC or east to Kitsilano Beach, Granville Island, Science world, English Bay and Stanley Park. It's also a 5 minute walk away from great bus routes that will take you to UBC or downtown in less than 20 minutes. In the summer there is the farm market every Saturday where you can pick up fresh produce, have lunch at one of the food trucks and meet the locals. There are also several fresh produce shops on Broadway as well as men's and women's clothing shops, the Travel Bug, Kidsbooks, Ace Cycle and many more.
