The house is located 2 blocks from Trout Lake and John Hendry Park, home to the popular Trout Lake Farmer's Market. Trout Lake, as well as having a great little life guarded beach and concession, has a new fully equipped community center, 3 tennis courts, an outdoor basketball and ball hockey court, two great playgrounds, and regular activities like live music, ethnic festivals, festival of lights, and local fire swingers / jugglers . The heart of Commercial Drive, a street well known for it's variety of ethnic cuisine, shopping opportunities, and people watching, is 3 blocks West and a short walk north. There is a skytrain station within a 10 minutes walk from the house that opens access to Vancouver's vast public transit system, getting you downtown in 12 minutes, and virtually anywhere in the lower mainland that you want to go. It is an eight minute car ride to get downtown, and an 8 minute car ride to get onto Highway #1 which will take you straight to the North Shore, leading to Squamish and Whistler. The location is great for being tucked into a quiet little neighbourhood, but only minutes to access all Vancouver and surrounding areas have to offer.
Our home is a beautiful house located on a quiet, two block, family oriented cul-de-sac street. The main floor has 9 foot ceilings and two main floor bedrooms with a double murphy bed in one (this bedroom could double as an office), and a twin captain's bed in the other. Walk through the kitchen and upstairs to a spacious master with a queen size bed, office corner, en-suite bathroom with shower, and a 150 sq foot deck that overlooks the backyard and has clear mountain views. On the main level, the back family room with its large windows, flows nicely into the backyard's lovely garden, lawn, and patio, where you'll find a grill (BBQ), a sandbox, and a cool evening place to hang.
You'll find family oriented and pleasant neighbours on the entire street.+ More
