Make this light-filled haven your headquarters for enjoying the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. Conveniently located in the heart of the sought-after Kitsilano neighbourhood, this home offers instant access to everything, yet is quiet and private, tucked away behind trees and a lush garden.
This modern, architecturally designed home is spacious and inviting, with glass blocks and skylights throughout that bring light streaming in. On the ground floor you will find a cozy and well-appointed living room with a gas fireplace and a view to the private patio surrounded by greenery. Also on this level is a spacious, superbly equipped kitchen and open dining room, as well as washer/dryer and a full bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub for soaking away those long days out exploring the city. On the second floor are two bedrooms, office space, baby's room, and a luxurious master bath with heated floor, double sink, and a glassed-in steam shower under a skylight. The master bedroom features a deluxe, hypoallergenic natural-latex and wool mattress on the queen bed in the second bedroom is a double bed. A spiral stair takes you to a door leading out to your totally private rooftop deck with plantings, a gas grill, and views of the mountains in the distance.
This location could not be more convenient. Being just one block from the best section of Broadway Avenue in Kitsilano means that you are just a few minutes walk from shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, boutiques, supermarkets, post office, dry cleaners, drugstores, bookstores, doctors, chiropractors, dentists, gas stations, fitness centres, and a movie theatre-everything you might need is just steps from your door. Three bus lines along Broadway, plus another three bus lines just four blocks away along 4th Avenue, will take you quickly to all the Olympics venues and anywhere else you wish to go. Downtown and UBC are each just 10 minutes away by car, or 15-20 minutes by direct bus. The airport is 20 minutes away. Enjoy this great location which is both close to everything yet still appreciate the atmosphere of the quiet tree-lined street, with very little traffic. For children, there are several playgrounds and parks within five-minute walks, as well as the best children's bookstore in town just around the corner. A leisurely 10-minute walk brings you to the waterfront and spectacular views of the mountains. An additional 5 minutes in either direction, and you are at either Jericho Park or Kitsilano Beach, which are two of the city's premier waterfront parks.
