**Sneak Peek Thursday, 10am to Noon!
One of the BEST units in 'THE NORTHLANDS' townhome community! Family (ESPECIALLY family!) or downsizer or nature lover, you can't IMAGINE how great living here is! Launching early next week!
Ok, let's start ticking boxes: almost 1,800sf inside, with 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms up ? CHECK. Powder room on the main? CHECK. Two car (attached!) garage and LOTS of extra storage? CHECK. Fully remodelled with quality and modern style? CHECK. For under $1.2 million? Yup, CHECK. BUT, while that often elusive big-ticket list is exciting here in North Vancouver, it's the spectacular and exclusive extras that created a long-running love-it or list-it dilemma for the sellers...
SETTING: situated at the quietest, most private end of the complex, nestled up against the forest, with a large private patio
LAYOUT: downstairs features a soaring vaulted ceiling in the living room that creates a gorgeous transition from downstairs to upstairs, an expansive open kitchen with breakfast bar that is still tucked away from (and therefore not intruding directly on) a dedicated dining room area, a powder room, a large welcoming foyer with separate entrance from the garage, and wonderful flow from the dining area to the full-width brick patio. Upstairs are 2 good sized bedrooms, a full guest bathroom with tub/shower combo, and the massive, vaulted-ceilinged master bedroom with generous walk-in closet and huge ensuite bathroom featuring a 'family sized' soaker tub.
RENOVATIONS: crisp, warm, modern 'wood and white' motif throughout, with much attention to detail... other than the master bathroom (in excellent original condition), this feels like a brand new home, right down to door handles and trim!
*SKYLIGHT!!! One of only 2 or 3 units to have a skylight, these owners did it right... half-way up the vaulted living room ceiling, this is a HUGE bonus, flooding the open area of the main floor with tons of extra natural light!
STORAGE: with a garage of almost 400sf, multiple storage closets in the garage, storage under the stairs, and great closet/cupboard space throughout, organizing just about any amount of gear, toys, tools, clothes, or other items will be a cinch.
COMMUNITY: perhaps the hardest part for this young family to leave behind is the quality of the people at Northlands... from young families to empty-nesters, there is a great vibe in this secure, gated strata community. Every home is private, but there's lots of playdates and friendly interaction here as well.
LOCATION: quiet forest surrounds Northlands close in, providing peace and privacy... yet move the radius out just a bit, and there is an explosion of amenities! Perhaps the MOST outdoor-sports dense area this side of Whistler, you have an absolute mecca of skiing, mountain biking, golfing, kayaking, hiking, road cycling, dog-walking, stand-up paddle boarding, and more, all available within a kilometre or two. Gear up at MEC, beer up at The Raven! The quaint village of Deep Cove, Stong's and the revitalized Old Dollarton area, Parkgate Mall... endless conveniences, shops, and restaurants, great schools and childcare, and a quick hop over the Ironworkers Bridge to Vancouver...
