a short blurb form the realtor : [mls listing]
rare opportunity to own in the prestigious west point grey with stunning panoramic water, downtown and mountain views from every level & patio of this contemporary home situated on a 33′ x 168.8′ perfectly landscaped lot. this 5 bedroom/4.5 bath custom masterpiece designed by architect stuart howard and built with steel frame by keystone construction. meticulously cared for by the builder/owner, every detail is hand picked of the highest quality. open spacious concept with lots of well integrated temp control crawl spaces (+ 2 car detached garage with flat lane access) offer maximum storage. just steps from jericho and minutes from ubc as well as queen mary elementary and lord byng secondary.
the lower two floors feature some creative space / circulation planning. two crawlspaces since the house is situated on a steep slope. a secondary level entry on the second floor eating area from the side yard is a nice touch.
the upper two floors continue with more decks towards the view. the top floor is solely dedicated to the master bedroom with an option of turning the dressing room into the prime spot in the house to enjoy those amazing views of the city.
the living room with view.
living room with dining room off to the right.
the kitchen with double refrigerators? there is that mini deck off to the left.
fine detailing with the glass guards. no blocking of the view!
even the dressing room has a view! how great is that?
the back of the house looks more modest at only 2 floor height. nice steel canopy details make this home unique. it’s too bad that the glass blocks make the house look dated (80’s ?) but i [secretly] do hope they make a comeback.
