The big sell: This custom-designed home in Vancouverís Dunbar neighbourhood was built by the sellers in 1983 in a Frank Lloyd Wright style often found in homes on the bluff overlooking Spanish Banks. It features modern sleek lines, glass block walls, skylights, rounded corners and multiple levels. The home also has vaulted ceilings, an open staircase, a sunken living room and family room and a rooftop deck that offers views over Dunbarís Douglas firs. It uses solar-powered hot water heating, and has a new cedar roof, deck, blinds and high-efficiency furnace. A loft overlooks the master bedroom, which also has access to an ensuite bathroom complete with Jacuzzi tub. The 50-by-130-foot lot provides ample space for family and is close to St. Georgeís school and Pacific Spirit park.
