The big sell: One of the advantages of living on the North Shore is that many of the properties enjoy water or city skyline views due to the gradient of the land. This three-level home is one such example, with partial Lions Gate Bridge and water vistas from its south-facing patio and balcony. It was built in 2000 in Upper Lonsdale. The interior has clean lines throughout, with hardwood floors on the main level that create a natural flow between the rooms, and high ceilings and an open layout that accentuate the sense of space. There is radiant heat on all levels, gas fireplaces in both the living and family rooms, an ensuite bathroom off the master bedroom with tiled flooring and a double vanity, and a nanny/in-law suite with a kitchenette and a separate entrance in the basement. The house has a double garage, sits on a corner lot and has a flat and fully fenced garden.
