This gorgeous Point Grey home has a grace and comfort to it that welcomes visitors from the pretty, tree lined, quiet street.
Orignally built in 1925, this home had a massive, full renovation in 2002, bringing it up to code, completely. It was taken back to the studs and re-built in the Mission style that is full of detail, charm, and craftmanship galore. Architect, Gary Van Dijk, used only the best materials, finishings and a complete attention to detail so that every arch and trim was accurately re-built. The home had in-floor radiant heat, sprinklers, all new piping, electrical, plumbing, roofing, etc... installed during the renovation. We have the plans for viewing.
The main floor has a lovely, spacious great room with easy flow to the dining room and open kitchen. French Doors lead to the south facing backyard oasis that has built in, automatic sprinklers, decks and a re-built garage (2008). The entire property was designed by a Master Gardner with ease of care in mind along with complete beauty and tranquility.
The gourmet kitchen is made for a chef at heart, with stainless steel appliances, a centre island, a six burner, gas stove, and a great layout that is perfect for catching up with your family or entertaining.
There is a half bath and coat closet on the main floor along with a beautiful staircase that leads upstairs to the bright, Master Suite and spa like bathroom. Besides the Master, there is another room that can be an extension of the Master suite or can be used as a bedroom that has quaint window seats and a winter view of the ocean and mountains. This room used to be two bedrooms that were perfect for two small children. Our clients opened up these two rooms by removing the wall between them, however, by adding the wall back again, the top floor would host a Master Bedroom and two smaller bedrooms, both with large closets, window seats, large windows with a very pretty view.
From the main floors, stairs take you down to the lower floor where there is one bedroom that has an ensuite bathroom, along with two other rooms - both of which, can be bedrooms. The first bedroom is north facing with nice windows to let in light and good sized ensuite. The second room is spacious and has an entry from outside along with a large closet. This second room is presently being used for an entertainment room, but would make a great bedroom or could be suited due to the outside, separate enterance. The third room on the lower level also has access to the beautiful backyard with French doors that open up to it. It has built in desks and cupboards, so makes a very nice office, but could also act as a bedroom, making this home have 5 potential bedrooms, depending on how you use the space, and could even have 6, if a wall separated the top floor second bedroom once again.
