This comfortable family home is situated in Gleneagles, a quiet residential neighbourhood in West Vancouver, close to the ocean. The home is surrounded by trees and garden on a large lot and provides peace and privacy in a homely atmosphere. The large south facing picture windows look out over the decks and tree-tops to Point Grey and the University Lands in the distance and the mountains of Vancouver Island to the west.
This family home offers comfortable open-plan living on the main floor. The sunken living area, dining room, and master bedroom all have tranquil views of Vancouver and the ocean. Most of the upstairs rooms have hardwood flooring and there is a wood-effect gas fire in the living room. Also located upstairs is the study room with WiFi internet access, a well-equipped kitchen and a washroom. The master bedroom has its own en suite facilities and dressing room. The main entrance, hallway and boot room are located downstairs, along with the rec. room, bathroom, laundry and four bedrooms.
This home is pet friendly and child friendly. Toys, games and sports equipment are all available upon request. There is a large garage and the yard has plenty of space for extra parking.
Lots to do close at hand. Just minutes from home follow the creek down a rocky wooded pathway to the beach and watch the sunset over Bowen Island. Walk to the golf course and, if the weather allows, enjoy a round of golf at the public 9 hole course. The recreation centre next door is complete with gym, weight room, training studio, pottery workshop and daycare facilities. Next door is the Gleneagles Adventure Park, great for bikers and skaters as well as a play park and climbing frame. Enjoy a bike ride or walk along the sea walk to Eagle Harbor. Walk to Horseshoe Bay and enjoy food or beverage at one of the many affordable restaurants while overlooking the harbor and Howe Sound.
Overstone Hideaway is an ideal location for travel to all the Olympic venues. The Sea to Sky Highway is just minutes away and Whistler about 1-1.5 hours away. Cypress Mountain is a 20 minute drive, downtown Vancouver 30 minutes and the airport is 45 minutes. Horseshoe Bay and the ferries to Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands are 5 minutes drive. A main bus route along Marine Drive to downtown is conveniently located just a 5 minute walk away. Local shopping and services are 5/10 minutes drive away at Caulfeild village or in the West Vancouver villages of Dundarave and Ambleside.
After the excitement of the Olympic events, this is a lovely home to enjoy some quiet time in a beautiful west-coast setting but still within easy distance of downtown Vancouver and all it has to offer.
