This is an outstanding Edgemont view property, with an original Hollingsworth-era mid-century home that has been lovingly cared for and tastefully updated over the years. This is one of those homes that just feels right evident the moment you step inside. Setting this home apart is its very private view lot, the lovely mid-century build and design, and its excellent location.
The lot is truly something special. With mature gardens and an excellent situation, there are no sight-lines into the home or the south facing backyard. Sloping to the south, the lot was originally graded with two terraces, one at street level, the other downslope making up the backyard. From the street the lot runs flat right to the front door. The lower level runs out flat to the very private backyard.
The views from the main floor are unexpected, with a great view of the downtown peninsula. This south facing vista is punctuated by trees near and far providing and interesting outlook while doing a good job of filtering the abundant direct sunlight streaming into this home.
From the front yard looking north, there is an interesting view of Grouse Mountain rising gently up from street level.
Inside you’ll find a lovely open-plan living/ dining room opening onto a large wrap around deck, a large renovated kitchen and a nicely renovated bathroom all on the upper level. There are also two bedrooms on this floor.
Downstairs is a large flex/ recreation/ office space, full bathroom, laundry room, a cold storage room, and two more bedrooms, one with a gas fireplace opening directly out to the garden via large french doors.
Finishes include a harmonius mix of modern renovation and original mid-century elements. The kitchen and upper bathroom have been more recently renovated and work nicely with the many other updates to the home over the years:
- New kitchen with stainless steel appliances, quartz composite countertops, custom millwork and tilework
- New bathroom with wall mounted toilet, European soaker minimalist designer bath, frameless glass, floating vanity, custom tile, light fixtures, etc.
- Updated recessed lighting
Original mid-century elements remain intact:
- Top-nailed solid oak flooring
- Clerestory windows and transom windows throughout providing both light and privacy
- Unique brick and mortar planter/ divider with fireplace in the living room
- Large postcard windows to the south to showcase the view
- Various cantilevered elements on the roofline providing subtle interest and style
This is a fine home to just move into and enjoy. However it would be absolutely stunning with a modern renovation that leverages the thoughtful, original mid-century design.
The location is the most coveted and sought after in North Vancouver. In the hills above Edgemont Village, this home is perfectly situated for families or professional couples that prefer to live in a natural setting just a short distance from downtown Vancouver. With forest trails pretty much at your doorstep, the outdoor lifestyle that Vancouver is famous for pretty much lives here.
