MID CENTURY MODERN

Own a piece of Vancouver Art and Architectural History! Over 6,100 sf of curated West Coast mid-century-modern living space was designed by famous Canadian architect Ron Thom. This incredible home, built in 1960 on a private 9,000 sf lot, is nestled in a secret cul-de-sac that boasts two additional Ron Thom’s and an Arthur Erickson. The house features classic mid-century-modern design elements such as floor to ceiling windows overlooking a courtyard of curated gardens, a spectacular living room with vaulted twenty foot ceiling and grand fireplace, a bright solarium, and expansive entertaining spaces. This home’s authentic style has been lovingly retained, and many important aspects have been updated including heat, water, drain tiles, and fencing. This is a rare and unique piece of architectural history, that is even better in person than in the photos!
