This Heritage Edwardian home in the Strathcona Vancouver area has finally been listed with EcoRealty and is ready for viewing!
This Edwardian heritage home is a precious little property that is going to appeal to a very special buyer. The ideal buyer will be in love with heritage homes and appreciate the care that the home seller took in keeping as much of the original structure as possible.
The PRES stagers did their best to create an attractive look to the property without taking away from any of the gorgeous architectural features. The home owner completely rebuilt the home keeping all the heritage features including the bannister, fir floors, stained glass windows,fireplace and high ceilings. No expense has been spared on this restoration including: new wood shingle roof, wood siding & new foundation. Soon to have a Heritage of Vancouver plaque confirming the quality that has gone into this home.
Take a look at previous posts to see the stages in preparing this property for selling. It is a real beauty.
