Modern Vintage Charm in Moody Park

Welcome to this warm and inviting home nestled behind a mature hedge in one of New Westminster’s most family-friendly neighbourhoods.

This lovely house, which offers three bedrooms and two bathrooms over 2,225 square feet, was built in 1909 and retains much of its vintage charm, while having been meticulously updated in recent years to accommodate today’s modern family.

Through the picketed front gate, you’ll find a welcoming veranda set against the original brick facade of this historic farmhouse, the perfect spot for a morning coffee.

The front entry door with its stained glass opens to a spacious foyer with 9-foot ceiling and a banister staircase on the left, leading to the home’s second storey. To the right of the foyer, double French doors open to a large living room with adjoining dining room.

The bright and fresh five-year-new kitchen boasts polished granite counters with custom backsplash, gas range, loads of cupboard space, Murano glass pendants and enough space for more than one chef in the house.

Off the kitchen is a newer light-filled laundry room with a side-by-side front-loading laundry set and extra storage. Also on the main level is a newer full bath with a pedestal sink and walk-in glass shower.

Head upstairs and you’ll find a large second storey landing area with a cosy nook, ideal for a  study, piano or just a quiet spot to read a favourite book. Double sliding doors open to the light-filled primary bedroom, and down the hall is another good-sized bedroom and spacious 5-piece bath with double marble-top vanity.

On the lower level is a roomy family room with an area perfect for a home office, as well as a third bedroom, a mud room and even more storage.

The many upgrades in the house include updated electrical and plumbing, updated drainage, new double-glazed windows, a new roof (2018), newer furnace (2014) and a year-old hot water tank.

Whether you’re an avid gardener or a novice itching to try your hand, you will delight in the backyard oasis. A large private deck overlooks a fully fenced yard with mature gardens and an inviting ground-level patio, making the space perfect for child’s play and outdoor entertaining.

This home, which also has lane access, a single detached garage and extra parking, is ideally located within walking distance of schools, parks, shops, transit and nearby amenities.
