Welcome to this spacious 1807 sf Half-Duplex in a family-oriented Kits neighborhood. WOW - 3 Bedrooms ON THE SAME FLOOR - this is great for families with small children! There's even a 4th bedroom UP - or you could use it as a Playroom or Family Room, AND an Office. The top floor also has a closet and plenty of under-eave storage.
The current owners have done approximately $65,000 worth of renovations in the last 3 years including: a completely NEW Kitchen with lots of cabinets and counter space, Stainless Steel appliances including a gas stove, new glass tile backsplash, quartz counters, new lighting, faucet, large and deep sink that is big enough for huge pots. There's room enough for a breakfast table, and there's even a Pantry Closet! They installed new floor tile in the Kitchen, Foyer and Main Floor bathroom, which was also fully updated with a new shower stall, toilet, vanity, glass tile backsplash, countertop, sink and faucet, and even heated floors to warm your toes.
The Main floor has a spacious Living and Dining area, and features built-in shelving, and a gas fireplace for cosy evening ambiance. French Doors from the Dining Room take you to a new south-facing Patio Deck and a fully-fenced yard (completely re-landscaped). There's even a new natural gas connection for your BBQ, and a new East side fence.
Second Floor - the Master suite has 11' ceilings, new closet organizers, and a luxurious Ensuite bath with a custom linen closet, heated tile floors, and a skylight and window for natural light. There are two children's bedrooms on the same level, a separate 3-pc bathroom, and even a homework nook for the kids.

Located just a block off West Broadway, with a WALK SCORE of 98, this location is great for people who want lots of local amenities to walk to. It's 2 short blocks to General Gordon Elementary - no more having to drive the little ones to school. You can send your teens to Kitsilano High School less than 800m away. The Library is 2 blocks East, Safeway is 3 blocks, and you can walk to the great shopping & restaurants on Broadway that Kitsilano is famous for - support your local businesses!
NOTE: The measurements and floorplans are from BC Floorplans; the strata plan shows 1242sf - buyers should verify if required. The 3rd floor was developed by previous owners (at least prior to 2007) and may be unauthorized. Like many duplexes in Kitsilano, this Duplex is a legal non-conforming Strata property and as such there is no Strata Council, there are no strata meeting Minutes, no Budget, no Bylaws, no operating or contingency reserve funds, and no strata fees have been collected. The owners of both units share in the yearly Strata insurance. The building was completely repainted in 2015.
This family has small children, so notice is needed for showing. Please call for a private showing, or contact me if you have further questions at 604-220-9620.

And if you don't feel like cooking, you are just a few blocks away from the great restaurants on Yew Street and West 4th Avenue.
The chic floorplan in this 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath unit allows for larger principal rooms with little wasted hallway space, and there are no shared walls (for extra peace and privacy). The high ceilings, large windows, and East and South exposure give plenty of light and even some winter mountain views. Looking for outdoor space? Then you'll love to BBQ and entertain al fresco on the large 444sf wrap-around patio (Limited Common Property), or indulge your inner gardener to create a green oasis!
