Executive Home in Central Location; Near UBC, downtown Vancouver and Vancouver Airport

Welcome to a cozy family home. This 4000 square foot vintage character home was built in 1926 and has been extensively renovated over the years - lately in 2006. It has five bedrooms on three floors (three up, one on the main floor, and one in the basement). The centerpiece on the main floor is the large modern kitchen and family room with an open floor space. It has large windows with a view to the garden, three skylight windows, recessed lighting, and bay windows. The kitchen features dark stained cherry wood cabinets, granite counter-tops and a large island with seating for eight people. The living room is large with 12 foot ceilings, a limestone gas fireplace and a view to a tree-lined quiet street. A formal dining room with comfortable space with 10 seats around antique oak dinning set.

There are also three full bathrooms and a dining room with seating for 12 people. The house has been 100% re-wired and has a modern lighting and alarm system. The house has solid oak floors on the top two floors, as well as all new wood windows, new appliances, and contemporary art and furnishings. There is a large deck attached to the rear of the house holding a gas barbecue and outdoor deck furniture. The basement features a games room with large 60" TV, L-shaped couch, table tennis, rowing machine and an exercise bike.

The home is in one of Vancouver’s most central and exclusive neighborhoods: Shaughnessy. Located a short walk from 41st and Granville St., this house is perfectly situated for quick access to the University of British Columbia (15 min), the Vancouver International Airport (15 min) and the downtown core (10 min). The adjacent shopping area of Kerrisdale provides added convenience. The house is situated on a quiet tree-lined street (which is a designated bicycle street in Vancouver) with numerous other bicycle streets nearby. Vancouver has a fantastic bicycle network.

Neighboring parks include Quilchena Park, VanDusen Botanical Garden and Queen Elizabeth (QE) Park. QE has 12 tennis courts, basketball and hockey courts, and beautiful gardens. The new Hillcrest-Riley Park Community Centre has an Olympic size swimming pool, ice rink and curling, weight room, gym, public library and many activities and classes for all ages. There are numerous Golf Courses nearby.
