About Candace & Alan
We are a retired couple: Alan worked in Tv and film, and Candace still does background work from time to time because she can't quite give up the acting bug. We are proud parents and grandparents, and we love to garden, golf, play tennis, ski, run and walk, travel and read. We are keen theatre and film-goers, we love entertaining and good food, wine and company!
Candace & Alan purchased this house in 1986
Why Candace & Alan chose West Point Grey
This is the loveliest part of Vancouver, with character homes interspersed with newer modern but aesthetically pleasing houses also. We have a lovely mountain view from the Garden Suite! The gardens are all beautiful and mature trees line the streets. Its close to the beach, to the shops of West 10th Ave Village and Kitsilano, and we can bike to Granville Island, UBC, Bard on the Beach, or along the seawall at Stanley Park.
What makes this house unique
We are a lovely 10 minute walk from the beach and some of the most beautiful views in the city, 10 minutes from a superb golf course, close to several public tennis courts, close to public transit and downtown - and UBC. We are well served by restaurants and cafes in all directions, with great food stores and theatres quickly accessible. It takes half an hour to reach the slopes of Cypress Mountain in the winter for skiing and in the summer for the amazing views and hiking - and the other mountains are just a little further. Whistler is now a mere 11/2 hour drive. You can reach the ferries in 45 minutes and the Vancouver Island and smaller islands make wonderful one-day get-aways.
