First Time to Market in 86 Years

Originally developed circa 1925, this estate is an incredible opportunity to own a unique piece of Vancouver land. Amongst the largest available in the city, this property offers almost 2 acres (84,831.7 square feet) of prime land with incredible view potential. Situated upon this lot is a historically notable family home with Heritage B status. The Tudor styled home contains almost 9,000 square feet of living space that is untouched and unchanged from its days of grandeur. If the 20's style is for you, this is your home!

Next to the home is a 3 car garage with undeveloped coach house above.

Escarpment

Sitting high on the Marine Drive escarpment bordering the Fraser river, this property potentially offers incredible views beyond the golf course of the Fraser River, the Gulf Islands, Vancouver Island, the Richmond flat lands, and Mt. Baker. At the base of escarpment the property is separated from the Marine Drive Golf Course by the Arbutus Street right of way.

The overgrown remains of what once was a superb hillside garden includes the original sprinkler system and gardeners cabin. Grand pathways (see gallery), now partially cleared, deliver a overview of what once was and could be again.

The Home

Three levels feature multiple large rooms. The main room, study, office and master bedroom have wood burning fireplaces. Solid oak floors cover almost all living areas. Main and secondary dining rooms face south as do the the study and reading room with double french doors that when open, invite fresh Georgia Straight sea air to enter the home. A large southern exposed brick patio serves as passage way to the gardens. The triangle shaped cedar thicket to the west of the home has within what was is believed to be a garden sanctuary.
