6925 Waverley Ave, Burnaby South, BC

I just finished uploading this House for sale, 6925 Waverley Ave, Burnaby South, BC

Once in awhile a special property becomes available. This 4 bedroom, 2 bath character home was solidly built in 1924 and has been lovingly cared for and updated by the same owners for the last 31 years. This home allows for 2750 sq. ft. of cozy living plus a 1400 sq. ft. open, high ceiling, unfinished basement awaiting your ideas. Upon entering the front room/parlor that is complete with a real stone gas fire place, post and beam 9 ft ceilings, and a grand dining area, your joyful family gatherings are quickly envisioned. The spacious updated, country kitchen boasts 2 pantries and an adjacent solarium. The main floor includes a family room with a free standing gas fireplace, a good sized bedroom, and a period style bathroom. The upper floor allows for 3 more bedrooms, a full bathroom complete with a sauna, plus a great study/library area. The open, high ceiling basement is unfinished and awaiting your ideas. If you have a car buff in the family, the attached 4 car garage will be treasured. The electrical service and drain tiles have been replaced, but the most recent updates include a newer roof, gas furnace, and exterior painting. The 53x192 ft. lot is equally impressive with a secure, (no lane)"country feel" back yard complete with 2 water features and a 1953 Studebaker pickup truck planter box with working headlights. It is hard to imagine while enjoying this idylic setting, that downtown Vancouver is just minutes away via the Metrotown Skytrain Station. The possibilities of this property are numerous, including a natural Bed & Breakfast. Come and see for yourself at our first showings on Saturday April 30 & Sunday May 1st 2-4pm.
