This lovely character home is on a peaceful, tree-lined street in prestigious Kerrisdale. Solidly built in 1914 on a wide 37-foot lot, the home retains much of its original charm, including oak and fir floors, heritage wood windows, a 27-foot-wide veranda, high ceilings throughout, and gorgeous stained glass windows.
The spacious living room features original oak flooring, wood-burning fireplace, and wide pocket doors opening onto the dining room with unspoiled original wainscoting, built-in drawers, and china cabinets with leaded glass windows. Also on the main floor home is a den with built-in bookshelves behind leaded glass windows, a functional kitchen, and a powder room.
The top floor boasts four generously sized bedrooms, including three with walk-in closets, a wide landing-cum-flex space, an office/nursery off the master bedroom, and a four-piece English style bathroom.
The ground-level basement floor has a full height recreation room, cozy den, bedroom and three-piece bathroom – ideal for a guest or a nanny suite.
Perfectly located just steps to Crofton House School and Kerrisdale Elementary, and minutes to St. George’s School, Quilchena French Immersion, and Point Grey Secondary. It’s a 3-minute walk to direct transit to downtown and express bus to UBC, and an easy walk to Kerrisdale Village replete with gourmet restaurants, cafes, and shops to meet all your needs.
This character-valued home has potential for several development options available through the City of Vancouver.
