The big sell: This North Vancouver home is on a quiet cul-de-sac close to Mahon Park and transportation, and with easy access to Central Lonsdale’s extensive amenities, including shops, restaurants, schools and walking trails. It was built in 1995 and consists of three floors laid out with a thoughtful floor plan that comprises a family room on the main floor, an eating area in the kitchen, radiant heating on all levels, and skylights. There are city skyline and harbour views from the master bedroom, the living room, and from a deck that spans the width of the house. Two notable elements are the dining room, which has a ceiling that soars two levels, and Doric-style floor-to-ceiling columns. The lower level provides potential for revenue income, as it contains a family room, three-piece bathroom and two bedrooms. The exterior has a well-manicured garden mainly laid to grass and a double garage.
