West Vancouver Real Estate Update 

There are 5 new listings in West Vancouver today: 

A charming 2 bedroom cottage on Marine Drive in West Bay with outstanding ocean views offered at $ 869,900. This a court-ordered sale, sold on an “as is where is” basis. The property has BC Rail directly behind the rear lot line. I cannot believe this went to a court sale, there is good value here and what a great location. 

If you are looking in Cedardale, this home may not be the one you want, yes there are lots of upgrades but it backs right on to highway one.  It has been for sale since the earth cooled and now they have increased the price.  Probably because they just received their new assessed value. So of course if the District says it is worth more, then it has to be true!! If you need a realistic read on what exactly the assessed value means to your actual value - just give me a call. Over a chat and a cup of tea we can dissect the options. Now may also be a good time to visit the web site  http://evaluebc.bcassessment.ca/Search.aspx so you can see how rich the neighbours are.

Desirable Caulfeild: A spacious family residence on a large 11,811 sq ft gated property on Caulfeild Drive. This home has been extensively renovated and well landscaped and offers 4450 sq ft of living space, 5 bedrooms, 4 baths and 1327 sq ft of decks and patios. Close to Caulfeild Elementary, Rockridge High and Caulfeild Village on Headland Drive. Offered at $ 1,775,000. 

Ambleside is always a good bet and this home is no different.  A Craftsman home on a bright south facing property, but on the North side of the street on Inglewood Ave.  Priced at $ 2,680,000. This home was purchased only a year ago and already it is back for sale. Even still, the price is good and listed pretty well at what they paid for it a year ago, so that cannot be a bad thing.   At over 4000 sq ft, this home features 4 spacious bedrooms, 5 baths, a custom kitchen and private backyard. Close to West Van Secondary & Ridgeview Elementary Schools. Also easy access to École Pauline Johnson Elementary School on 22nd street in West Vancouver.

A re-list of a home on Madronna out towards Whytecliff Park. Even though this has been a difficult sale, I love this street. A creative architect could have a field day with this one. 

And last, but not least: a 5,188 sq ft gorgeous custom home on Rockbank Place in Rockridge with fabulous ocean and city views from the entire wall of south facing windows. Concrete & metal construction, featuring an elevator, built in sound, lights and security with a Smart Home System, an infinity pool and much more! Offered at $ 8,900,000.
