This is a solid, three level heritage house with lots of vintage character, on a large and very wide 5026 sqft RS1 zoned lot. The house sits high off the street behind mature gardens designed for privacy.
On the main floor you'll find two bedrooms, a large kitchen, and a lovely living room with the original wood fireplace. Principal rooms are large and what you would expect from a house of the era.
On the top floor is a bright and unusually spacious self contained 2 bedroom legal suite. A separate entrance for the upper suite is just off the shared entranceway. The upper suite is in excellent shape, again with large principal rooms. The layout is superb, with satellite bedrooms opening onto a large open-plan living area.
This is a tall house that sits on a foundation that is already high off the street. As such the light is plentiful as the house has an east/ west orientation. Newer large windows have been installed throughout much of the house and the natural light that enters the living spaces is lovely.
Outdoor space is varied and plentiful. Off the entrance is the outdoor covered verandah which faces west, and sits high off the street. Off the main floor rear exit is a newer covered deck that steps down to the back yard.
The backyard is enormous with a single car garage, endless gardening space, and parking for three vehicles. The lot is wide and deep with lots of potential. Fully fenced, the space is secure yet feels very open.
Inside, refinished solid fir floors add great warmth to the space, as does the recent paintwork. Overall the house is well maintained and it shows. This is a classic East Vancouver heritage-style home that has been well loved and well lived in and well cared for.
Last but not least is the unfinished basement with its own separate entrance. Currently used as open studio space, on this level you'll also find some very nice modern laundry facilities.
Overall, this is a classic vintage East Vancouver heritage-style house on a fantastic lot with great fundamentals. Savvy buyers will appreciate what exists and recognize the potential.
