I have sold a property at 2220 KITCHENER ST in Vancouver.
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.

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.

I have sold a property at 1730 VICTORIA DR in Vancouver.
This charming home had its building permit issued on 13th January 1909 and it retains much of its original character. From the entrance foyer a leaded French door opens to the living room with bay window and 9’4 ceilings, the big adjoining dining room is great for entertaining and most of the woodwork is unpainted here. An ornate bannister leads up to three good size bedrooms, the front one with a wall to wall closet and the back one with 2 skylights. There is a newer “period” bathroom here with clawfoot tub. In 2010 the present owner had a major reno done from underpinning the foundation, new drain tiles, new furnace with electronic air cleaner, mostly new double glazed windows, blown in insulation in the walls (R14) and ceilings (R50) and on an EnerGuide audit the house scored high at 82, it is extensively replumbed and rewired (no knob & tube), floors resanded and painted in and out. At this time were installed two new bathrooms and a spacious kitchen with granite countertops, under cabinet lighting, breakfast bar and pantry with lots of cabinets with soft close drawers and doors. Also a new 50-gallon hot water tank was installed this September. Outside the kitchen door is a 12x12’ deck with natural gas hookup for a BBQ and below the deck is a convenient 100 sq.ft. storage room. The basement has been professionally finished with a rec/room, bedroom, utility room and a 3pce bathroom with heated tiled floors. Off the full 20ft wide back lane the double garage has been converted without City permits to a coach house with 11ft vaulted ceilings, four skylights, a gas fireplace and its own hot water tank and laundry. The property is nicely landscaped with a beautiful flowering magnolia tree in the front garden and an Asian apple pear tree in the back, and is on the quieter part of Victoria Drive.

I have sold a property at 2708 21ST AVE E in Vancouver.
Big 70.5x101.85 corner site was bought by this owner over 70 years ago. It was originally a 33’ inside lot and a 37.5’ corner lot but owners had them consolidated into one parcel for municipal tax reasons. City verbally says possible to have two 35.25' lots, or the 33' and 37.5' lot again. The corner 37.5' lot would allow a new house to have mountain views with potential to build a triple garage on this wide lot, or else a laneway house facing onto E 21st Ave. Zoning is RS-1 and there is a full 20ft back lane. Seller’s request no showings of the small, old house, being sold for land value only with buyer to demolish house. Oil tank on site is in the process of being removed. Offers, if any will be looked at on Saturday, 7th May at 12 noon.
