We are happy to present this new listing at the very desirable Jeffs Residences in the popular Commercial Drive/ Grandview Woodlands neighbourhood. The Jeffs Residences is one of those special developments where existing heritage has been retained and carefully densified. The result is modern construction and amenity woven into a heritage aesthetic and feel that fits seamlessly into the neighbourhood.
This is a very nice three bedroom, three bathroom townhouse over three levels, the largest floor plan available in the development. This home has very pleasant private outdoor patios on the main level both front and back. There is also a unique deck off the top floor master bedroom. Setting this home apart is its great family friendly layout, extensive heritage design, and excellence of location.
The building itself is unique as it has incorporated a large, turn of the century heritage estate. Comprised of manor homes and in-fill townhouses, this is a boutique development of only 20 units. Character is retained and enhanced with design cues like over-sized baseboards, over-height ceilings and craftsman-style entries with unique transom windows.
Inside, you’ll find an awesome layout with an extremely large living/ dining/ kitchen on the main level. The open area leads out to the private patios both front and back. There is also a powder room off the dining room area.
The second level has two bedrooms at opposite ends of the unit, with a full bathroom and two storage closets in between. In-suite laundry is also on this level.
On the top floor, you’ll find the master bedroom, a very generously sized space. A full ensuite bathroom with large shower is conveniently situated here. There is also a unique balcony overlooking the neighbourhood to the east accessible from the master bedroom.
Finishing is very good, with modern materials presented in classic colour stories. Look for granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, custom millwork and tile work, etc. In the bathrooms you’ll find seamless glass, solid quartz composite surfaces, and custom European style fixtures.
Other design elements worth noting include the over-height ceilings on the main level and the vaulted ceilings in the master bedroom/ 3rd level. With glazing on both the east and west sides of the unit, light is varied and interesting, and establishing a cooling cross-breeze is a simple affair.
There is an outdoor patio just off the kitchen, a space ideal for planters with herbs and leafy greens, and a good amount of space for the bbq and a cafe set. This space has a dedicated gas line for the bbq. The front outdoor space is just off the main entrance, with a semi-private feel suggesting friendly conversations with neighbours in the courtyard and views to the street.
You likely already know that the location is ideal, an overall excellent family neighbourhood with a strong community feel. All the amenities along Commercial Drive are close at hand, as are transit routes. Everything is in walking distance. This is truly one of Vancouver’s most walkable neighbourhoods. Check the Walkscore tab above for more information.
This home comes with one secure parking space, an underground storage unit, and in-suite laundry.
The building has an underground bicycle cage and a common-use balcony overlooking the city from the manor house. Pets and rentals are allowed.
If you’re looking for a townhouse with a unique heritage in a prime location, this is one to definitely put on your list. The combination of layout, location and design makes this an excellent option. Come see us at our open houses, or contact us for a private showing.
