SNEAK PEEK THURSDAY, 5:30 to 7:00pm!!
Welcome to 2760 W. 3rd Ave., a gorgeous, modern, and flexible 4 bedroom, 3 full bathroom Crafstman-styled half-duplex home complete with sunny south-facing yard, ideally situated a short hop 'north of 4th' in the vibrant heart of Kitsilano.
Built in 2011 and with almost 1,600sf of smartly laid out floorplan over 3 levels, this beautiful family residence was originally a 3 bedroom, with 2 bedrooms (including master with vaulted ceiling, walk-in closet and ensuite) and 2 baths on the top floor, and one huge bedroom and full bathroom on the bottom floor... shortly after purchase, the owners smartly partitioned (professionally and with permit) the bottom floor into 2 bedrooms, creating an efficient 4 bedroom home that has fit their 5 person family perfectly since new.
The main floor is open and bright with a welcoming landing and foyer, higher ceilings, large kitchen, living room area with gas fireplace and tile surround, dining area with contemporary chandelier, and sliding glass doors leading to a perfect BBQ landing and the stairs to the sunny south yard. For the kitchen, there are stainless appliances (GAS STOVE!), sleek steel-tiled backsplash, stone countertops, tons of cupboard space, and sexy pendant lighting over a huge island that is perfect for prep work and/or socializing around.
The street appeal is quintessential 'Kits', with a peaked and gabled roofline and an almost obligatory-for-Kitsilano large tree welcoming you down the entry path. Out back is a very cute and sunny yard with a smartly in-laid patio area that has hosted many family dinners and gatherings. Here you'll also find a Japanese Maple, Ornamental Maple, and a very healthy Magnolia.
Practical pluses include an 8' by 9' utility room, in-floor hot water radiant heating throughout, generous storage area behind one of the downstairs bedrooms, 'attic' storage above the master bedroom's walk-in closet, roughed-in built-in vacuum, and most importantly a private single-car garage.
Location? North. Of. Fourth. Within 10 blocks or less, you will find Kits Beach, the vibrant shopping and dining centres of both W. 4th Ave. and W. Broadway, a public library, no less than 6 elementary, French Immersion, and pre-school facilities, a huge community centre with ice rink, public library, and countless other services and amenities. For transportation, you can catch a bus to anywhere in the city within 1/2 a block, the best cycling route in the city is practically outside your front door, and driving to downtown or UBC is a quick 10 minute affair.
