The space

Originally built in 1900, this exquisite heritage home was recently renovated for over five years, giving it a light-filled, open concept interior that has to be seen to be believed. With over 21 skylights, vaulted fourteen-foot ceilings, and meticulously refinished original fir floors, the house is the ultimate combination of old meets new. Unique modern and mid-century furnishings are complemented by an eclectic collection of art and photography. The home offers two large bedrooms upstairs, with exposed beams and multiple skylights -- including one over the jacuzzi bathtub! On the main floor is a large sitting room with an extensive book collection, a dining room with a custom-built table and crystal chandelier, and a large cook's kitchen with a gas stove, espresso machine, and leather bar stools. The living room offers a vaulted ceiling with eight skylights, a gas fireplace, a large sectional sofa and flat-screen TV. The room is surrounded on two sides by a heritage-style porch, and looks out over a koi pond and lush landscaping in the back yard.

The house is literally steps from idyllic MacLean Park in the heart of Strathcona - Vancouver's first neighbourhood. There is lots of street parking right out front, and the house is a block from several wonderful delis, grocers and cafes. There's even a fantastic cheese shop less than three blocks away! Best of all, it is ten minutes' stroll to historic Gastown, five minutes to the seawall in False Creek, ten minutes to BC Place stadium and Rogers Arena. There are frequent buses less than two blocks away, as well as a nearby Skytrain station.

You will be amazed by the peace and tranquility, so conveniently located in the heart of the city.

Samantha and Jason were excellent hosts. The house is beautiful and comfortable and in a great location (very central yet quiet and next to a kid-friendly park). We had an absolutely wonderful stay and would love to return, highly recommended!
