Modern Meets Heritage in Queen’s Park
Simply put: this Queen’s Park family home has it all.
Originally built in 1931, this home was taken down to the studs and a three storey addition was added in 2006 making it the impressive 4,280 square foot family home it is today.
On the main level you’ll find a welcoming foyer, open concept living and dining room with built-in cabinetry surrounding the gas fireplace. The chef-inspired kitchen boasts a large central island with double sink, storage and seating, granite surfacing, DSC 6-burner gas stove with pot filler, built-in Miele coffee maker, warming drawer and dishwasher, built-in microwave and a Bosch Platinum Series fridge. There is also a separate eating area.
This family hub opens to a grand light-filled family room with built-in cabinetry, TV, central fireplace and two sets of double French doors leading to an amazing outdoor patio with built-in gas barbecue, heater and separate lounge area with an outdoor gas fireplace and Bose surround sound.
In fact, the whole home is outfitted with a multi-level sound system giving everyone a chance to listen to their favourite tunes in different areas of the home.
One of two home offices and a 3-piece bath — which includes the original clawfoot tub — complete the main floor.
Head upstairs and you’ll find four bedrooms and two full baths.
The near 300-square foot primary bedroom boasts a vaulted ceiling, fireplace, TV, a Juliet balcony overlooking the backyard, a large walk-in closet with built-ins and a spa-like 5-piece ensuite with 6-foot soaker tub, walk-in shower with dual shower heads and separate water closet.
Also on second level is a well-equipped laundry room complete with built-in cabinetry, ample counter space for folding and a deep porcelain wash sink. There is additional storage in the large hallway linen closet and three accessible attic spaces.
Thoughtfully designed for dual use, the basement has a spacious media room with TV, built-ins, home gym with TV (could be a fifth bedroom), full bathroom with stackable washer/dryer and full kitchen. This space is easily converted to a separate studio or 1-bedroom living space for extended family, nanny or as a mortgage helper.
Also on this level the second home office with 9’7-foot ceiling, custom wall-to-wall cabinetry and built-in desk. There is a wall-mounted TV with surround sound.
For the wine aficionado, a custom temperature temperature controlled cellar with stone barrel ceiling.
The lower level also includes a spacious mudroom with large Kohler farmhouse-style sink, walk-in coat closet and a large storage room.
Other features — and there are many — include hand-planed teak flooring, in-floor heating, air conditioning (two-stage electric heat pump ), central vacuum, California closets, irrigation system, Jeldwen wood windows throughout and all have screens (both French doors equipped with phantom door screens), alarm and camera security systems.
It doesn’t stop there, for the smaller set there is a pretty sweet treehouse complete with heat, trundle day bed for sleepovers, wifi, bar fridge, wall-mounted 40-inch TV, outdoor balcony with lighting and slide.
And if a garage is on your must-have list, then the two-car detached garage and separate storage shed should do the trick.
Need an outdoor space to keep the four-legged family member on occasion? There is an enclosed dog run with artificial turf. Yard is fully fenced with an electronic side entry gate.
Situated in the heart of the city’s most sought-after neighbourhood on an expansive 9,400-square foot lot, this turn-key home is steps from nearby Queen’s Park and within walking distance of all levels of schooling, shops and services Uptown, the New Westminster Farmer’s Market at Tipperary Park and a short stroll to SkyTrain.
