A truly spectacular West Coast Craftsmen home radiating charm and elegance! Completely re-built, this residence was substantially renovated to include new electrical, plumbing, lighting, flooring, roof, windows and doors, built-ins, insulation, a mixture of Hardi-Plank, Stone and Cedar-Shingle siding with rain-screen, landscaping and perimeter drain system. Newly painted exterior and interior in 2020.
The main floor features form and function with the kitchen positioned between formal rooms on one side and casual rooms on the other. The living room boasts a cozy natural-gas fireplace and the dining room is large enough to accommodate any sized table. The chef inspired kitchen features shaker cabinets, an apron sink, 36-inch stainless steel range, wine fridge, a large island with dine-up breakfast bar and plenty of cabinet space. Adjacent to the kitchen is an eating area and family room with additional gas fireplace. Both rooms lead to a massive sun-drenched back deck. Each room features plenty of natural light and boast views to gardens and greenery beyond.
The main floor also features a ‘second’ master bedroom complete with ensuite bathroom. Perfect for a teenager, in-law suite, home office or a live-in nanny, this room provides flexibility that is hard to find. The powder room and laundry are conveniently tucked away and close to the action.
Upstairs is a large master bedroom with Romeo and Juliet balcony with French Doors, a huge walk-in-closet and spa-inspired ensuite. Currently being used as an office and guest suite, the second bedroom is massive and could easily be split into a 2nd and 3rd bedroom. Other features include vaulted ceilings with fans, wainscotting in the bathroom, pot-lighting and each room has a peek-a-boo view to the city.
Downstairs you’ll find a conveniently located mud room as you enter from your over-sized double garage. Equipped with cubbies and hangers this space will allow you to leave the mess at the door. You’ll find a media room, games area (currently a sewing room), and two additional bedrooms providing flexibility for teenage rooms, a home office or fitness area.
Need a basement suite? The lower floor lends itself perfectly if you would like to add a suite while keeping a recreation room and storage room for yourself. The owners roughed-in the plumbing and electrical for a kitchen and there is already a bedroom, bathroom, and separate entrance available. Very easy to add if a mortgage helper is preferred.
The North-West facing back yard offers the best of both worlds: plenty of natural light and direct sun with exceptional privacy that can only be found on a greenbelt. Resting on Mission creek, you’ll enjoy the changing seasons amongst the towering evergreens and natural landscape. The cedar-plank back deck is massive and boasts an outdoor dining area plus enough room for lounge seating. Perfect for summer BBQ’s and entertaining friends and family.
Do you have any rising basketball or hockey stars in the family? The playground-grade basketball hoop in the designed-to-be flat driveway is a dream come true for the athletic family. Hockey games and basketball games are a must if you buy this home. The regulation height, high-end backboard and hoop will stay with the home!
Nestled between Edgemont Village, Delbrook Community Center and Upper Lonsdale, you are walking distance to a plethora of cafes, restaurants and shopping . Embrace your adventurous side and live on the doorstep of Grouse Mountain. Enjoy skiing in the winter and mountain biking on Fromme in the summer. Just a stone’s throw to Braemar Elementary (French Immersion) and Carson Graham Secondary (both in the catchment). This neighborhood has it all!
