Estate Sale

May 13, 2013

This impressive Southlands estate didn’t last long on the market. Over 31,000 square feet in the middle of horse country. Teak hardwood floors span the huge open plan interior, and of course, the tennis court and indoor pool. Realtor Patrick Weeks sold it a couple of days after I sent him the photos. Coincidence?

The owners of this North Vancouver view property banished neutral colours from their home when they redesigned it a few years ago. Instead of blending into the background, the walls transform the house into a work of art, reflecting the tastes of the owners, and complements their interesting collections of figurines, sculptures, and motorcycles. From the street, the front of the house is very unassuming, but the back yard is where the real living takes place: a huge pool, decks, waterfall, and cabana make the most of the available space. I’m glad Clive and Steve chose to do a night shoot here, the colours stand out like neon against the dark blue evening sky.

Ivy league

I’ve walked my dog along this tree-lined street near UBC many times, and always admired the quiet charm of this neighbourhood. This 1928 character home has been carefully updated to preserve its original country charm. It has a unique main foyer that opens up to a wraparound mezzanine on the second floor. Bookshelves and windows line the walls, and the huge yard has been professionally landscaped. Monique Badun can fill you in on the rest.

It’s always an adventure shooting properties in West Vancouver. Every neighbourhood, every house is unique. The entire city is perched on a hillside, offering incredible views of Vancouver and beyond from just about every window. And the homes tucked away along the winding waterfront roads are nothing short of spectacular.
One of the more interesting neighbourhoods is called the Parthenon, named after an old estate that had structures built to resemble Greek ruins. Some of the foundations and columns are still there, enjoyed by the dozen or so houses that now occupy the property. The waterfront itself is shared among the homeowners, so each can lay claim to beach access. The land is surrounded on three sides by the ocean, and includes a barbecue area, concrete wharf, beach, trails, and an unobstructed view of Burrard Inlet. Oh yes, and the house is pretty nice too. John Jennings can fill you in on the details.

Main Street townhouse

February 9, 2012

This beautiful townhouse would look right at home in Kits or Kerrisdale, even though it’s a block from the shops on Main Street. It features Brazilian cherrywood floors that have to be seen in person to be appreciated. 14 foot ceilings and windows on all sides give it lots of light and space. There’s an open house coming up — see Jacob Krause for details.
