Its an ideal location for Olympic events. Only 15 minute drive to Cypress Mountain, 90 minutes to Whistler, 20 minutes to downtown Vancouver and less than 40 minutes across town to the Richmond Olympic Oval.
On the ground floor of the house, facing the rear, the fully equipped kitchen looks out onto a large two-tiered sundeck where the propane BBQ is conveniently located.

Also on the ground floor is the dining room with expandable dining table to seat up to eight, and a comfortable sunken living room facing the front with a gas fireplace and stereo, for those who prefer to read or listen to music. Off the hall is the laundry room with side-door access to the carport. Space for parking as many as 4 cars.
Upstairs, the large Master bedroom king in the back provides a view of the outer harbour, and features a treadmill, a 28 Sony TV with cable & DVD, and ensuite bath/shower. The second bedroom queen across the hall also gives views of the outer harbour, as well as the famous mountainside British Properties in West Vancouver. The third bedroom twin which can sleep two, is equipped with a small 12 colour TV with cable.
