Located on a quiet tree lined street our Heritage Home has been in the family since the 1920s. The ground floor apartment has a private entrance and has been newly renovated.
We are centrally located and easily accessible by car, bus or sky train to everything you will want to do in the Vancouver area. It is a 10 minute bus ride to downtown Vancouver including Chinatown, Gastown, shopping and theatres. We are 10 minutes by taxi to both cruise ship terminals and also the Waterfront station of the Canada Line sky train to and from the airport. It is 5 minutes to the entrance of the #1 Highway to North Vancouver which takes you to the Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal to Vancouver Island. The nearby Ironworkers Bridge gives you quick access to all the local ski resorts with beautiful hiking trails in the summer and the Highway to Whistler/ Blackcomb Mountains.
Our neighborhood of Burrardview sits on the shores of Burrard Inlet and there are a number of parks within a short walking distance from our home. These include Burrard Park with it's sweeping views of the inlet and North Shore Mountains, New Brighton on the water with swimming and picnic areas and Hastings Park with racecourse, casino and Playland's heritage rollercoaster.
We are both retired from social work careers. We have 6 children all living in the Vancouver area and 7 grandchildren and 1 great-grandson. We both love to travel and also enjoy music, reading and gardening. Two of our children are tour guides in the Vancouver area so we have access to any information regarding tours, attractions etc in our area. We love our little corner of the City and think it is one of Vancouver's best and would be delighted to share it with you! On a hot summer day come home to the cool breeze off the water and relax in your home away from home!!!
Our property has been in the family for three generations. Bill's grandparents purchased the house in the early 1920s. Although there have been some new houses built many of the houses in our neighborhood are also heritage properties. This along with the Japanese Plum trees that line Trinity Street give us a feeling of history and make us very happy to live here.
