I have listed a new 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”.
A fold down ladder accesses the attic which has lots of built in storage and incredible views from the large skylights.
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.
Open Sat, 7th Apr 1-3pm

I have listed a new 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.
