a description of the house by the realtor:
one of a kind mid-century modern home designed by renowned canadian architect ron thom on over a 1/4 of an acre (13,677 sq.ft) corner lot in desirable south granville. this is incredible opportunity to own a piece of canadian history that has been wonderfully maintained in celebration of the original design & architecture. on the main floor you’ll find an airy living room with bright glass windows over looking the expansive patio leading to the outdoor pool, a formal dining room ready for large family dinners, a spacious kitchen & a family room. make your way upstairs to the master bedroom with ensuite, 3 additional bedrooms with a shared bathroom. this private lot can accommodate the construction of a new 3 level home of approx. 8,000 sq.ft.
Even though the listing states a new home can be built on this lot, it would ideal to preserve the house or relocated it to another lot. The city’s new charter retention policy would encourage an infill building on this lot which could be a nice addition.
the current floorplan has some quirks in it but a little renovation could go a long way.
I am interested in all early West Coast Architecture.
