West Vancouver, population of a little less than 43,000, is a seaside residential municipality made up of a number of communities, each with its own special attributes. In recent years, West Vancouver has become a popular city for both local and foreign buyers. With all the charm of a small community, but only a short drive from Vancouver, residents gain the best of both worlds by choosing to live in West Vancouver. West Vancouver Realtor® Michelle Vaughan says, I would never want to live anywhere else.
Nestled between the ocean and the mountains outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the activities that are available here, from skiing to swimming and everything in between, including fantastic recreation, boutique shopping, highly ranked school system, and great restaurants says Realtor® Michelle Vaughan.
One of the downsides of living in such a sought after area, is the price of Real Estate which according to Vaughan, has increased substantially over the last few years. Vaughan continues, "It can be difficult to find the home you are looking for within the right price range, so it is with great pleasure that I would like to introduce this new listing available for sale. 3303 Marine Drive, West Vancouver has a combination of a number of desirable qualities, at a price that can’t be beat."
Perched high above Marine Drive on a large fenced property, this charming home is accessed by a private residents-only lane-way, a unique attribute which ensures minimal disruption from the street below. This warm and inviting home was completely renovated down to the studs in 2007 and when redone, particular care was taken to maintain the charm of yesteryear.
The home combines modern luxuries with a beautiful property in a great location. It offers 3700sq ft of spacious and bright living on 3 levels. On the main there is an inviting entry, formal living and dining rooms, large powder room, den, mud room / laundry room, and beautiful open plan kitchen with a large island, eating area featuring picture windows overlooking the ocean, quality custom cabinetry, and top of the line appliances. "The kitchen is my favourite room in the house," says West Vancouver Realtor Michelle Vaughan. "The open space, combined with the view, and the warm inviting feeling you get when you walk in make it a place where a family would want to gather," says Vaughan.
Just off the main floor is the front patio which offers a glorious setting to spend a sunny afternoon, enjoying the ocean view as well as the surrounding gardens. Another patio off the back of the house offers a peaceful retreat to relax in.
Upstairs features 3 bedrooms, including the lovely master suite with built-in dressers, his and her closets, and a large 5 piece bathroom complete with his-and-her sinks. With an abundance of light and the ocean view it is both elegant and charming at the same time.
Downstairs offers access to the oversized one car garage, large bedroom with 4-piece ensuite, perfect for a teenager or guest, and a large recreation room which opens up to the front yard and private patio.
"The home is well-placed on a flat, professionally landscaped 11,050 sq ft lot with ocean views. You are so close to the beach that you can hear the waves and smell the ocean. West Bay Elementary School (top public elementary school in the Province) is just a few blocks away while Dundarave Village is a two minute drive to the east. Within 100 meters of the home is some of the most expensive real estate in North America. You'll be hard pressed to find a better family home in this wonderful neighborhood."
