Agent Walter Wells describes this 3,892 square foot home as "an architectural wonder." The five bedroom, four bathroom home was custom built by the previous owners in 1983 and is "unlike anything being brought to the market today," he says.

"While most new homes being built do their best to reflect the character of the 1920s and 1930s, this luxurious home was custom-designed in a style more usually found in homes sitting on the bluff overlooking Spanish Banks in Point Grey."

The home may be 27 years old, but it is still very "modern and sleek with bold lines, glass block walls, skylights, rounded corners and multiple levels," Mr Wells says.

The house has a rooftop deck and a 9 x 10 foot loft that overlooks the master bedroom. The finished basement contains a bedroom, storage and large, 19 by 12 foot recreation room. It has been updated with a new wood shingle roof, cedar deck and high-efficiency furnace. Other features include an open staircase, solar powered hot water heat and a sunken living room.

Located just one block from St George's Private School and Pacific Spirit, Dunbar, and Chaldecott parks, the large 50 by 130 foot lot "provides ample space for a family and is surrounded by mature Douglas fir trees," the agent says.
