The big sell: This 85-year-old home in Vancouver’s Dunbar neighbourhood is full of character and curb appeal, thanks to its gable roof design, detailed window casings and attractive landscaping. It consists of two storeys and a basement, and has hardwood in-lay flooring, french doors and a living room with built-in shelving and wood-burning fireplace. As well, it features a separate dining room, two bedrooms on the main level, and a kitchen with a built-in eating area and access to the west-facing rear patio and garden.
The top floor has a further bedroom and study, as well as views over the neighbourhood towards Balaclava Park. Renovations were undertaken last year, with new plumbing installed in the basement, which has a one-bedroom guest suite. The wiring was also updated and the roof is two years old. The home, which is on a 33 x 108.5-foot property, is within walking distance to Dunbar’s community centre, cafes, movie theatre and shops.
