The big sell: This property appears to have many highlights, including a plum location in West Vancouver’s Whytecliff neighbourhood, a position directly across the street from the beach, and a spacious third of an acre lot. The home was built in 1936 with a wood exterior and roof and sits nestled among trees. It enjoys a westerly exposure with mountain and ocean glimpses, a sundeck to take full advantage of them, and a stone-surround, wood-burning fireplace. The main floor totals 1,000 square feet and comprises a living room, kitchen, master bedroom, four-piece bathroom, and a sizable den with eight-by-13 feet dimensions. There are two further bedrooms to be found upstairs. The property will be a bonus for fitness and nature lovers as there are numerous stone steps.
