New property listed in South Granville, Vancouver West

We have listed a new property at 1299 57th AVE W in Vancouver

1299 WEST 57TH WAS ORIGINALLY COMMISSIONED BY ARTHUR ERICKSON FOR THE HWANG FAMILY IN 1982.

"THE HWANG RESIDENCE RECOGNIZES, FOR ITS INSPIRATION, BOTH THE ANCESTRY OF THE CLIENT AND THE NATIVE TRADITIONS OF THE SOO CHOW HOUSES OF NORTHERN CHINA. IN SOO CHOW, A PAIR OF TRADITIONAL HOUSES WERE ORIENTED IN OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS FROM A COMMON BACK WALL, AND WERE COMPOSED OF A LONG SERIES OF SIMPLE ROOMS ORIENTED TOWARDS COURTYARDS OR BALCONIES ON THE SECOND STOREY." THE LIVING ROOM FLOATS ABOVE THE REFLECTING POOL WITH FLOOR TO CEILING WINDOWS. "

"THE RESIDENCE AND ITS COURTYARDS AND GARDENS WERE COMPREHENSIVELY PLANNED IN THE MANNER OF THESE SOO CHOW HOUSES. EACH COURTYARD IS DIFFERENT IN CHARACTER AND RELATES TO THE ACTIVITIES OR FUNCTIONS OF THE SPACES IT SUPPORTS."

EACH SPACE ON THE MAIN FLOOR IS DAPPLED IN THE BEAUTIFUL LIGHT REFLECTING IN FROM THE POND, THE GARDENS, THE COURTYARDS, AND THE STRATEGICALLY PLACED VIEW CORRIDORS TO THE GARDENS.

ALONG A SKY-LIT HALLWAY ARE FOUR LARGE BEDROOMS AND 3 NEWLY RENOVATED LUXURIOUS BATHROOMS PLUS LAUNDRY COMPLETE THE UPPER FLOOR. THE MASTER SUITE HAS A MAGAZINE WORTHY DECADENT ENSUITE WITH STAND-ALONE TUB, WALK IN SHOWER AND MODERN TOUCHES THAT MAKE IT SPARKLE. OFF THE MASTER IS A GENEROUS SIZED PRIVATE DECK FILLED WITH CHERRY BLOSSOM TREE TOP VIEWS.

"TALL STUCCO COURTYARD WALLS SUBDIVIDE THE SITE INTO A VARIETY OF DISTINCT SPATIAL EXPERIENCES. ACCESS TO THE RESIDENCE IS ACROSS A BRIDGE OVER A LARGE REFLECTING POOL...".

DOWNSTAIRS FEATURES A LARGE PLAY SPACE OR GUEST SPACE WITH AN ENVIOUS WINE CELLAR AND TASTING AREA.

THE OUTDOOR SPACE OF THIS PROPERTY PLACES THIS GEM OF A HOME IN A GARDEN OF WONDER, MYSTERY, AND CALM.

THIS HOUSE HAS BEEN METICULOUSLY MAINTAINED AND WE HAVE A COMPLETE FOLDER WITH ALL OF THE RECORDS. ST. GEORGE’S SCHOOL – OFFERS A FRONT DOOR PICK UP ON HUDSON.
