Check Out This Georgian Style Mansion in South Granville
South Granville is one of Vancouver’s most desirable neighbourhoods, home to excellent shopping, plenty of green space, good schools, and great dining and entertainment options. The pinnacle of luxurious Vancouver living can be found at this charming Georgian-style heritage home listed by Royal Pacific Realty Corp., which offers ample space for living and entertaining.
Georgian-style homes have long been a symbol of classic sophistication in North America. Also referred to as Colonial-style homes, and the names are considered interchangeable. Real estate investors consider homes in this style desirable because of the space they offer and the sense of historical grandeur they confer.
These homes are known for their symmetrical styles and decorative elements that look like period-piece films. This Vancouver home is a textbook example of the classic symmetrical style of houses of this sort, with its majestic doorway situated right in the middle, surrounded by plenty of large windows.
Built in the 1930s and well-preserved over the years, this large two-story home has more than 4,500 square feet of living space, including three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Beyond its more than ample interior living space, it features plenty of outdoor space, including a large yard with well-kept mature trees.
This home's other impressive outdoor features include a large deck area, perfect for entertaining guests during warmer months and for taking in views of the neighbourhood and its mountain backdrop. The deck looks out over a yard that offers tranquil seclusion, bordered by various trees. The yard is well-landscaped and features a stone path and charming gazebo.
The property's interior offers an appealing mix of well-preserved classic features indicative of the home's nearly century-old history with a modern, airy design.
A mix of vintage and updated hardwood flooring offers a variety of styles from room to room. The home's original hardwood on the main floor is walnut, which offers elegant charm. An aesthetically pleasing L-shaped staircase connects the main floor to the home's upstairs area.
The main living areas feature ornate ceiling molding design, intricate chandeliers, and unique wall sconces that offer various lighting options. The common areas on the ground floor are spacious and feature high ceilings, giving them plenty of potential for interior design enthusiasts.
A common attractive feature of Georgian-style houses built during this period is spacious country-style kitchens that offer a mix of immaculate simplicity with modern appliances. The kitchen of this home fits that bill perfectly, with ample space, an elegant layout, and spotless wooden cabinets.
This home's large and inviting kitchen is one aspect that makes it particularly appealing as a family home. Another detail that appears tailor-made for the needs of a family is the partially finished basement, which is home to a large rec room.
The basement rec room offers plenty of space for children to spend time together and engage in indoor hobbies away from the home's main living areas.
As any real estate investor knows, a sizeable partially-furnished basement offers many possibilities, whether as an income-producing rental suite or a convenient in-law suite. You may find it's the perfect area to construct a home gym, an art studio, or simply a generously-sized storage option.
Another appealing feature of this home is the spacious master bedroom, which has three large windows that give an ideal amount of light. The master bedroom's ensuite bathroom is also impressive, featuring a large soaker tub and beautiful tile work on the floors and walls.
One of the first words that come to mind when considering this home is “balance.” The house combines beautiful design features from the early twentieth century with a feeling of modern luxury. It offers a prestigious lifestyle in a neighbourhood that’s also walkable and convenient. Most of all, this property features welcoming design choices and is primed to become someone’s cherished home.
This palatial home is situated in a truly livable area of South Granville, within close range of six public schools and six private schools. There are dozens of parks and recreational facilities within a twenty-minute walk of the home, including five tennis courts.
In addition to being one of the city’s more picturesque neighbourhoods, South Granville is also a convenient place to live. The area scores high in terms of public transportation options and is considered a highly walkable and bikeable part of the city.
This home also features a detached two-car garage for those who drive. Living in this part of South Granville offers easy access to essential destinations in and around Vancouver. The city of Richmond is a short trip by car, and in ideal traffic conditions, the drive to the Vancouver International Airport is just over ten minutes. The drive to the University of British Columbia is only around ten minutes.
Georgian-style homes are relatively rare in Vancouver’s housing market. After all, they require ample space and preservation over decades in a city where real estate is truly at a premium. For this reason, this property is a unique opportunity to acquire an eye-popping home.
