Renfrew Vancouver East
1105 KELOWNA STREET, Vancouver East, BC, V5K 4E3, Canada
Nestled on a quiet tree-lined street, this character gem has location, appeal and its own flair. Situated on a large lot, this house offers many options for your growing family with generously sized rooms and wonderful natural light. The house has been nicely updated (including wiring, plumbing, windows, flooring and Bosch appliances) but with attention to keeping its character details intact.
The main floor offers a formal living room complete with wood burning fireplace, oak floor and a coved ceiling. There are also two bedrooms with original fir floors, one currently being used as a home office, perfect for quiet contemplation, and the other used as a formal dining room that awaits your elegant dinner parties or Sunday night family dinners. The extensively renovated kitchen is bright and light, with gas stove, exposed brick, eating area, and lots of storage and workspace. The kitchen leads to a small mud room, which is perfect for harvesting the fruits of your labor from the garden, drying herbs, or attending to those small muddy footprints. The main floor offers its own laundry and a generously sized bathroom.
The upper floor has a substantial master bedroom large enough for a king sized bed and a large walk in closet with built in shelving for plenty of storage. Another sunny bedroom, also with built-in shelving, completes the top floor.
The lower floor has been kept for the owner’s personal use, but is a self-contained one-bedroom suite that could very easily be turned back into a mortgage helper or in-law suite. Sporting its own private entry, kitchen, bathroom, personal laundry, plenty of storage (including a natural wine cellar) and high ceilings, with windows ushering in ambient light and overlooking the back garden, this suite would be easily and immediately rentable.
The mature gardens of the front and back yards add both privacy and paradise. The front yard offers a stately maple tree, rambling roses and lilacs that offer scent and shade, with perennials blooming almost year-round. The back yard is a tranquil gardener’s paradise with an herb garden, a large vegetable patch and an Italian plum tree. A purple smoke tree overhanging a quiet babbling pond lends lyrical tranquility, and the deck off the house is perfect for BBQ time, making the backyard a secure and secluded setting for pets and kids alike and a lovely place to entertain friends and family.
The paved back lane offers access to the two car garage with plenty of storage space that has been transformed into both a workshop for the handyman in your family and a gym area - an all-around man cave for the man who has everything but a little of his own space. Alternatively, the garage could easily make way for a lovely laneway house.
Situated in a neighborhood that is a short stroll to the shops, acclaimed restaurants, entertainment, parks transit and schools of Hastings Sunrise, the Drive and East 1st Avenue, this home is as vibrant and inviting as the surrounding East Van community. Open House Thursday June 2, 6-7, June 4 and June 5 2-4.
