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.

I have sold a property at 2762 GRAVELEY ST in Vancouver.
A rare spacious well kept family home like this is hard to find and is the oldest house on the block, built in 1913. A grand entrance foyer opens to a spacious living room and dining room, the owners installing the gas fireplace and cabinets in the living room in 2013. The kitchen is well laid out and has a stainless steel dishwasher, Maytag gas stove and Fisher Paykel fridge with bottom freezer. At the back is a guest bathroom with heated floor and access out to a covered deck for year round BBQ’ing. A lovely staircase leads up to 3 large bedrooms and a 4pce bath with soaker tub. Downstairs the owners got permits in 2009 to reconfigure and dig out the basement to 7’2 (+/- 6’6 under ducts), build a big new 4pce bath, they kept the kitchen but removed the stove and a great laundry area was added. There’s also a gas fireplace and French doors opening to a nice patio, ideal for nanny, granny or other inlaws.
Out back is a big insulated +/- 23x22’ garage built in 2013, a new south deck and a pergola with retractable awning was added. The rest of the backyard is finished as easy care.
Other upgrades in the last 10 years include new roof, furnace, hot water tank, heat pump for A/C, the electric system upgraded to 200 amps with sub panels on each floor of the house, and the windows are all now double glazed.
This popular location is close to transit, shops and Clinton Park is at the end of the block..

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 2227 7TH AVE E in Vancouver.
Located in a row of tall traditional houses on one of the most sought after tree lined streets in the area is this comfortably sized family home. Columns from the hall lead into the living room with fir floors, high ceilings and the original coal burning fireplace with built in cabinets on either side. An archway leads through to the large dining room with a beamed ceiling. Three years ago the kitchen was renovated with granite counters, under cabinet lights and a gas stove. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms and a remodelled bathroom with a nice soaker tub. The basement is an average of 7 feet high with a 3pce bath and wet bar area, and could be finished off as a suite.

Outside is a hot tub and a big deck with steps flowing down into a landscaped back garden. House can be updated further and could be extended by 100’s of square feet.

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.
