About Jonathan & Kathy Tenta
That picture was taken last summer in front of Salmon Glacier, near Hyder Alaska. We bought a 1981 Chevy RV and travelled 9500km through our wonderful province of British Columbia to Dawson City Yukon, and then back down the other side of BC. It was an amazing way to spend time with our young family, while another family was enjoying our home and everything the city of Vancouver offers.
Jonathan & Kathy Tenta purchased this House in 2003
Why Jonathan & Kathy Tenta chose East Side
This house is situated in an area that gives a glimpse at what city communities are capable of. The dead end street is quiet from traffic, but alive with the vigours of a community in the middle of Canada's second largest city. You are 8 minutes walk from the skytrain, 20 minutes walk from commercial drive where the ethnic cuisine possibilities are endless and 4 minutes walk from the enormous John Hendry Park, which hosts Vancouver's major Trout Lake Farmers Market every Saturday from 9:00 - 2:00, and has a lifeguarded lake with a concession, a fully equipped Community Center, tennis courts, basketball and road hockey court. A network of bike routes passes right through the John Hendry Park where you can access the seawall to get to Granville Island, English Bay and Stanley Park with little or no riding on city streets.
What makes this House unique
The house has an old brick chimney going right up through the center of the house, and big old local fir posts and beam separating the living room from the kitchen. Combined with the nine foot ceilings you have an open space while also maintaining a cozy cottage feel. We love how the back family room and it's eight foot windows flows into the back yard, especially with our two and four year old's adventurous zeal. Most of the summer is spent with that back door open. On a nice evening, the large upper deck equipped with a big solid table and a sun shade lends a great view over John Hendry Park to the North Shore Mountains. This is the spot to go over the day's experiences, while sipping on a warm or cool drink. You'll love it.

Cute East Vancouver Home
Very convenient, cozy, well-equipped home. We appreciated the close proximity to transit, to trout lake community center and to Commercial Dr. The owners are very welcoming and laid back. The A/C was fantastic in the hot weather!
