On a beautiful tree lined street with many nice old houses is this very spacious charming home on an extra long lot.

The upper 2 floors could be a spacious home, the main floor already has 3 bedrooms and the top level is inlaw accommodation with 3 skylights. OR, this 1924 vintage home may qualify to be 3 legal suites under the City’s new pre-1940 Character Merit guidelines – check at City Hall. The main floor has cove ceilings, 2 stained glass windows and lovely glass door knobs. Good mechanics with 200amp electric panel & extensively rewired, 4yr old H/W tank and 10yr old roof. OPEN Sun 23rd Sept 1-3pm

I have sold a property at 2110 3RD AVE E in Vancouver.
Sitting high on a hill with Garden Park at the end of a desired block is this neighbourhood classic. The spacious full width front porch offers a wonderful outdoor space to sit and take in the views of downtown and the mountains beyond. A large foyer welcomes guests and a sliding panel door opens to the living room with stained glass in the bay window, 9’4” ceilings spreading throughout the principal rooms along with inlaid oak floors. The original columns open onto the dining room with 3 more stained glass windows and a stone fireplace which has been painted over, matching pendant lights are in both rooms. A swinging door leads into the spacious kitchen which has a 4pce bath to the side and an eating area with French doors opening to a south deck and the landscaped garden with goldfish pond (the fish stay!).
On the second floor is a bathroom with 2 person jetted tub and a large opening skylight above. There are 3 bedrooms here, the back one with an opening skylight and the middle one has terrific views. At the front the huge master bedroom has an opening skylight and an 8’x6’ sitting area with 180 degree views. If wanted a new owner possibly could add in an ensuite bathroom at one end of this 23’6” long bedroom. At the back of this floor a door opens to a 13’x6’9” second level south deck that the owners describe as a “suntrap”.
The good height basement , 7ft+ in most areas, has a professional office and sitting area by the back door and an older 1 bedroom unauthorized suite at the front with downtown view from the living room. This can be accessed by a side door and has not been rented out for many years. Accessed externally is a hobby room/workshop, it has its own electric subpanel.
Over the past 30 years these owners have maintained and upgraded the house, including having it extensively rewired, a recent safety certificate is available. In 1993 the owners took out permits and enclosed the second floor porch, this is now the vaulted ceilinged sitting area in the master bedroom. Over the years the owners have also developed the attic, added on the hobby room/workshop and built sundecks on the main and 2nd floor. More recent updates include: 2009: a new roof, 2011: a new furnace, 2012: a new 50 gallon hot water tank. Almost all the windows have been replaced and the house is fully insulated.
Out back there is an extra wide 25ft back lane (standard is 20ft and sometimes less). This allows the owners to park behind the fence and come in the back door.
