Description

View a VIDEO CLIP of this classic Kitsilano Bungalow with Craftsman character and inspirations. The home is best described as "warm and fuzzy" and that makes you just want to sit down in front of the fireplace.

Features

Changes initiated by the Craftsman era were in reaction against the seemingly over-decorated aesthetic of the earlier Victorian times. The seemingly modest homes were more sturdy structure with interior designs to cater as family friendly for workers and labourers (who later become the middle class). Some transformations were to use exposed wood finishes as decorative features, the inclusion of a front sitting porch and the radical introduction of casual family meals within a kitchen eating nook.

This particular property may have you at "Hello". Positive first impressions are instantly created by westerly facing porch that leads to the front foyer. This then opens to an enormous central living area with 9 foot ceilings. This room comes alive with a rich ochre palette, original fir floors, a gorgeous wood fireplace and the cross hatch leaded windows. The skylit kitchen is certainly the heart of this home with a comfortable and almost Californian feel. There is a gas stove, new counters, fresh paint, terracotta tiles and quite a bit of elbow room. The adjacent eating area captures morning sun and over looks the enclosed patio surrounded by a manageable urban greenery. There are three bedrooms on the main floor which offer flexibility in arrangements. The renovated bath shows off new fixtures, chrome taps, white wainscoting while the overhead skylight showcases the tempting claw foot tub.

For those looking for a mortgage helper - there is a massive two bedroom, two bath suite down which is currently rented to excellent tenants for $1200/mo. Presently the attached single garage is used for storage but can be re-created back to its former days as an artist studio. This south of Fourth location is certainly close to most consumer needs and set in a pocket of similar homes that can only be described as "very Kitsilano". For the neighbourhood, it can be considered good value for those breaking into the Westside house market or for those looking for a lower maintenance living that is usually only found in townhomes properties.
