I have sold a property at 1434 LAKEWOOD DR in Vancouver.
This wonderful character home has been well loved by these owners for 53 years and is now ready for a renovation/restoration by new owners. The big front porch leads to the foyer with stained glass either side of the front door and a French door leads to the living room with a bay window, stained glass window and sliding panel doors opening to the dining room. The fireplace here was blocked off decades ago when previous owners turned the top floor into a separate suite. The living room, dining room and foyer have high ceilings and inlaid oak floors and off the kitchen is a 4pce bathroom. A lovely bannister leads up to 3 bedrooms with access to a second floor balcony which is now in need of new railings. On this level is a separate “Loo” and a big washroom where the owners removed the clawfoot tub many years ago to create a fourth bedroom for the expanding family. This possibly could be made into a full 3 or 4 piece bathroom and a small wall hung wash basin in the “Loo” would make this one and a half bathrooms on this floor. The basement is unfinished and a few inches higher than usual at 7’ high awaiting your ideas.
When owners moved in in 1964 the house still had the original sawdust furnace, they changed it to a natural gas one about 1970, so the owners believe there was no oil tank on the property. A number of years ago the old cast iron pressurized water pipes were replaced with copper and the electrical panel was upgraded to 100 amp breakers although some original wiring remains in the house. Off the back lane is a big 28x13ft garage with an overhead door and electricity, the roof is good but the walls need repair.
Around the corner on Kitchener is a new Lord Nelson Elementary School under construction and is to be opened in September 2018. The old school will then be demolished and turned into playing fields and green space. Visit http://go.vsb.bc.ca/schools/nelson/building/Pages/default.aspx for full details.
Ideal for someone wishing to restore one of the neighbourhood classics. Open House Sunday 1st Oct 1-3pm.

Records show this well kept charmer was the first house on the this block 93 years ago. Relax on the covered front porch overlooking the tree lined street, with a new Lord Nelson Elementary School being built at the end of the block. A spacious front foyer leads in to an open planned LR/DR with fir floors, high ceilings and 2 boxed windows. The kitchen at the back has a sunny south window and gas stove. On the other half of the main floor are 2 BR’s and a bathroom with clawfoot tub. Downstairs the basement is almost 7’ high with a spare BR, the rest is unfinished awaiting your ideas. Off the back lane is a good foundation for an 18x12' garage, the owners having dismantled the old one. The home retains most of its original character and has good mechanical updates. Open Sun 22nd Oct 2-4pm
