The big sell: This century-old updated Craftsman-style house sits in the heart of Kerrisdale and combines character with contemporary style. Original inlaid oak fir floors, coffered ceilings and wainscot panels celebrate the home’s history while modern influences abound with custom cabinets, a marble backsplash and quartz countertops in the kitchen, heated floors, Italian tiles, a deep soaker tub and a rain shower in the primary ensuite bathroom, and french doors on the main level that open to a south-facing sundeck. Hot water on demand, a new roof in 2021, updated electrical and plumbing and an upgraded furnace all check the big ticket items, while a two-bedroom self-contained suite offers revenue potential. An added bonus is a double garage finished with a beamed vaulted ceiling and skylights that could be an artists’ studio or home office or converted to a laneway house.
