I have listed a new property at 2562 YORK AVE in Vancouver.
Truly rare craftsman water-view property on "The Slope" in Vancouver's premier beach community of Kitsilano ("Kits"), and less than 3 blocks from popular Kits Beach. Oozing w/character & charm, this home sits perched on the high side of one of Kitsilano's most coveted blocks and was completely rebuilt & stratified in 2006 by Point Grey Projects, restoring much of its original 1920's appeal. The largest unit in the triplex, this 1851sf 2-level townhouse offers a pleasant colourful streetscape, notable mountain & water views from both levels, plus a private roof deck w/sweeping panoramic views stretching from downtown to Bowen Island (ideal for watching the summer fireworks series while enjoying a glass of wine from the privacy of your own home). From the moment you approach this property, numerous architectural details showcase the luxurious elegance of an earlier time (the breezy front porch, grand staircase, corner window seat, leaded glass, diamond window muntins, wainscotting and stately door & window casings). Yet extensive modern features & conveniences throughout make this home comfortable for today's homeowner. In-floor radiant heat, multi-zone built-in speakers (indoor and out) in all principal areas, security system, gas & electric fireplaces, natural gas BBQ hookups, skylights, and removable window shutters, just to name a few. The sophisticated 2-level layout features 2 oversized bedrooms and 2.5 baths (including powder room on main), formal living room/study, office space (currently used as exercise room), and loads of storage options. The main floor boasts a grand entrance foyer, formal living room (or study), a large great room (incl. kitchen, dining & family room) for family gatherings, a 2-piece powder room and expansive outdoor spaces and lush gardens, including large front and back porches and an expansive fully-fenced patio in the back (complete with water feature). The gourmet kitchen offers quartz counters, luxury stainless steel appliance package, under-cabinet lighting, cooking island with eating bar/extension, gas range and suspended range hood, and a separate built-in dry-bar. Family-room features custom built-ins and is pre-wired for surround sound. There are two very spacious and well-separated bedrooms upstairs, both with extensive closet and storage spaces. The master bedroom has a large north-facing picture window with ocean, city and mountain views, as well as a renovated master bath, and 3 separate closets (all with custom organizers). Despite the location, the stunning curb appeal and all the amazing features this craftsman home has to offer, one step onto the roof deck will take your breath away and ultimately solidify your decision...a 360-degree vantage point with unparalleled ocean, mountain and city views that rarely come available. Located on the York Avenue Bikeway and a short walking distance to Kits Beach and shopping on 4th Avenue. And Jericho Beach, Spanish Banks, UBC and downtown are all just a few minutes away by car or bus. Single detached garage is also included. Who says you can't have it all. PREVIEW OPEN THURS AUG 1, 5:30-6:30pm. OPEN SAT AUG 3, 2:00-4:00pm & SUN AUG 4, 1:00-3:00pm.
