Family home near UBC, beaches, and Pacific Spirit Park

This home is a combination of classic and comfortably modern. It was built in the early 1920s, with a major renovation about ten years ago. The renovation was done to maintain its original style, with hardwood floors, a fireplace, and a built-in sideboard in the dining room. But it also served to open the house up, expanding the kitchen to make the cooking area bigger but also adding an eating area so that it is a nice place for the family to hang out. The bedrooms upstairs are big and bright, both with Queen beds and looking out on the back garden. At the front of the house is an open concept living room and dining room, with the original, classic window at the front of the living room. Tucked in next to the kitchen on the main floor is a den with a tv and built in desk or crafting area. There is a (mostly) above ground basement with a bedroom with a Queen bed and lots of privacy. The basement also has a full bathroom, a tv area and lots of space – altogether almost forming a separate suite. The house has a bathroom on each floor – full bathrooms with tubs and showers on the second floor and in the basement, and a half bathroom on the main floor.

There is a comfortable window seat next to the kitchen table so you can snuggle up and look out the large windows into the back garden. The garden is filled with beautiful plants and has a patio with an outdoor table and chairs, a gas barbeque, and electric heaters so you can sit out even when it’s a bit cool.

The house is situated 2 blocks from Pacific Spirit Park with kilometres of trails for walking, running and biking. In the other direction, it is 4 blocks to a small shopping area with two small grocery/produce stores stocking most of what you need, coffee shops, clothing stores, and restaurants. It also has a bus stop for an express bus to downtown and local buses to places in between. Beyond that, it is about a 10 minute walk down to the beaches, looking across the water at the mountains. Walking along that beach, one can often see eagles and sometimes seals. Going west from the house, the entrance to UBC gates is 2 blocks away and the main campus is only a 10 to 15 minute bike ride. It is also easy to get to campus by bus either from 16th avenue (just two blocks to the south) or the 10th avenue shopping area (four blocks to the north). Two elementary schools and a high school are all within easy walking distance. The neighbourhood is quiet, safe, and friendly.
