The big sell: This Point Grey property is a poster child for West Coast living. It was totally re-clad on the outside with rainscreen technology and taken back to the studs on the inside — and remodelled with materials and finishings that include old-growth hardwood floors, stairs and beams, soaring ceilings, and an open-concept kitchen with maple cabinets, stainless-steel appliances and dark granite countertops. Both the kitchen and dining room overlook the living room — it has a northerly aspect – as well as the family room, which faces south. Both have gas fireplaces and access to landscaped gardens, which have sprinkler systems. The upper level of the home contains all three bedrooms and a master that opens to an ensuite bathroom, with its walk-in shower, Ultra Bath air jet tub, and double sinks. The property is within easy reach of some of Vancouver’s finest schools and parks, as well as UBC.
