Make It Your Home

Originally built in 1910, this home sits on a large 8,058 sq ft lot on one of the best tree-lined blocks in New Westminster’s sought-after Queen’s Park neighbourhood.

While the home has a wonderful heritage pedigree with its connection to prominent builder William Lane, this house has a connection to the hip era of the 1970s.

Renovated in the 1970s to add the Mansard roof and shore up the original 1910 foundation, this house is a fine example of a solid Edwardian home with a contemporary twist.

In fact, this roof style dates back centuries and was often referred to the French roof or Curb roof, it is a hybrid between a gambrel roof and a hip roof.

Featuring more than 3,300 sq. ft of living space, this home has 4 bedrooms upstairs and 1 full bathroom. On the main floor is a large foyer with banister staircase, large living room, sunroom, fir floors, fireplace and a spacious kitchen awaiting your ideas. There is a separate dining room (or den) and a full bathroom. A side porch was added and, with a little shoring up, this would make a great mudroom.

The main floor is ripe for an open-concept living space. What about adding double “French/Moorish” doors off the back?

Downstairs has laundry, a spacious studio suite and lots of storage.

You’ll also love the expansive lot with lane access and detached double garage. There is plenty of play space for the kids, and more than enough space to create a large patio for entertaining outdoors.

There is no question the house needs some work, but there is charm in the look and, when renovated, you’ll have an amazing family home in one of Metro Vancouver’s best neighbourhoods within walking distance of schools, shops, parks and transit.
