This Half Acre Lot is one of the largest lots available in North Vancouver, BC. Approx 20736 sq ft with 98 ft frontage. 1424 Coleman St.
Very quiet neighbourhood in Upper Lynn Valley.
Rare, beautiful and quiet estate-sized half-acre property on high side of street.
Set back from the street and up on a bluff sits an updated 100-year-old farmhouse with legal 2-bedroom basement suite.
Home is not on the heritage registry list so home can be altered, added on to, or new construction. No creeks or ravines, or steep terrain, etc.
Good investment property.
Very picturesque property is a remnant of an old farm. This private south facing lot gently rolls up from the street to a parking area. Past the parking area and up a few stairs, the lot flattens where the house sits and continues relatively flat to the back lot line. Lot has a good amount of sun during the day. Vast space for an urban gardener.
The house sits approx. in the centre of the lot. The rear of the property has a large lawn. Enjoy morning sunrises over the eastern mountains.
House is approx. 2400 sq ft. Some renovations are complete.
The 900-sq-ft plus main level has new dark oak flooring throughout, giving a heritage look. Main has an open feel with wide entrance-ways and many windows. The main consists of living room, family room, new off-white Ikea kitchen with off-white quartz counters and island, new appliances including gas range, dining room, 1 bathroom (an upstairs bedroom has been plumbed in for future additional bathroom), a small office. Upgrade on main includes wide casing trim around windows, entranceways and doorways and extra wide 11.5″ baseboards. Unfortunately, the previous owners removed all the heritage windows but period windows could be installed.
Upstairs has 3 bedrooms that could use updating. The upstairs has original fir flooring throughout under the floor coverings. (Finished original hardwood flooring and ship lap walls would look great on this level)
Bonus legal 2-bedroom suite in the basement is 600 sq ft. Remainder of basement is storage with w/d and furnace and hot water tanks.
This home would look nice with new front and back porches installed the width of the house.
Wiring, water and sewer have been updated.
