This is an excellent Scandinavian design three bedroom family-oriented townhouse in the fantastic Lower Lonsdale neighbourhood. Setting this home apart is its great layout, a top notch full renovation, and of course, the excellent location.
Inside you’ll find a very practical layout over three floors. The split-level main floor, with the living room, kitchen, and dining room all come together to create one cohesive social space. A fully covered patio accessible from the dining room area creates a natural extension of the inside space.
The upper level is made up of three bedrooms and a large bathroom. The second bedroom has peek-a-boo views of the city skyline and the water. All bedrooms have large closets with plenty of storage space.
The lower floor is made up of a large recreation room, a second bathroom, and some great storage under the stairs. There is direct access to the carport through the back door.
The outdoor spaces are quite excellent with a cozy and peaceful covered back porch extending off the dining area, and a wonderful roof top deck with great harbour views.
The back deck is partially covered allowing for use in all weather and makes easy access to the barbeque from the kitchen.
The roof top deck is very private and has a smart retractable awning to attenuate sunshine or protect against rain. Views are of the harbour, the Vancouver skyline, and sunsets over the Lionsgate Bridge. This deck receives complete sun at most times of day year-round.
There is extensive storage throughout, with big closets in the foyer and bedrooms, storage in the utility area, and a crawl space under the stairs on the lower level.
This home has been completely renovated, with a clean, bright and modern Scandinavian aesthetic. Completed in 2022, approximately $150,000 of work included new hardwood flooring, a fully updated kitchen with custom cabinetry and appliances, custom floating stairs with hardwood stringers and banisters, a modern Danish Morsø wood-burning stove, refinished ceilings, a reeded glass front door, and new recessed lighting, fixtures and hardware throughout.
With doors and windows on both north and south sides of the building, a cross-breeze is easy to establish and light is more than abundant. This keeps things bright throughout the year, and helps keep the space cool in the summer with fresh air circulating upwards, across and outwards.
Located in one of the most walkable areas of North Vancouver, this home is also in close proximity of the very fabulous trail networks. Around Lonsdale, you’ll find an ever-increasing roster of shops and services.
The location is quite unique in a lot of ways. Community is rapidly developing as the entire area is being continuously updated, with new developments both residential and commercial. A walkable neighbourhood, you can do a lot of daily tasks without the use of the car.
Lonsdale Quay is 10 minutes away on foot. Here you can take the Seabus downtown faster than you can drive during peak periods. And you get to ride in a boat, which is fun.
Along Lonsdale you’ll find the extensive shops and services that have revitalized the area over the past 15 years. Great spots like Tap and Barrel, Burgoo, Beere, Nemesis, Earnest Ice Cream, etc., dot the avenue and waterfront. There’s also great stuff for kids, including an ice rink, various playgrounds, waterparks, etc.
The building is described as a “collaborative and congenial strata with a quiet, family-oriented atmosphere.” The roof was replaced in 2020, the exterior painted in 2022, baseboard heaters and ceiling fans upgraded in 2022, and the plumbing was upgraded, also in 2022.
There are two covered parking spaces in the attached carport. The parking spaces are located directly behind the back door of the unit.
This is a great family townhouse in an excellent location. It’s hard to find “missing middle” homes like this one, especially those that are beautifully designed with great features like a water view roof-top patio. Come see us at our open house, or contact us for a private showing.
