Jewel on the Hill
Nestled on the corner of Burr and Milton in New Westminster’s historic Brow of the Hill neighbourhood, this stately Queen Anne, known as the Sidney and Ida Pearce House, has gone through an extensive renovation and is move-in ready with 2,485 of living space on three levels.
This home exudes curb appeal, from its projecting bay windows and decorative brackets to its stone foundation and second-storey cameo window overlooking the neighbourhood and the Fraser River.
In 2005, this home was taken down to the studs and upgraded with new mechanical, including wiring, plumbing and ductwork. This home was re-insulated, floors were refinished and reclaimed fir installed where needed. From the roof to the front porch, this home was transformed, even the exterior was sandblasted and scraped by hand in preparation for the new exterior paint.
The main level, with its 10-foot ceilings, offers a welcoming foyer, living room with bay window, a cosy den that is perfect for a home office, family room with built-in cabinetry, and a large kitchen with a central island, sandstone counters, gas range and loads of cupboard space. This family hub also features a roomy dining area with French doors leading to a lovely outdoor patio.
Head upstairs and you’ll find three bedrooms with 9 1/2-foot ceilings, including the large primary bedroom with bay window, and a lovely vintage-inspired bath with clawfoot tub, antique vanity with vessel sink and that spectacular cameo window with leaded glass.
Situated on a 5,003 sq. ft lot in a great family-friendly community, this home offers a lovely southwest-facing yard with mature landscaping. The cherry, apple, fig and plum trees all bear fruit, as well as a bay tree.
This home is ideally located just steps to nearby Fraser River Middle School and just a short stroll to a variety of shops and restaurants along Columbia Street, the River Market, Landmark Cinemas, Steel & Oak Brewing Co., Tipperary Park, SkyTrain and more.
