CO-OP AGENT Keith Roy, Macdonald Realty Ltd.

THE ACTION: Agent Keith Roy guided his client – a long time resident in Kitsilano – through a variety of low-rise homes before this unique coach house did the trick.

WHAT THEY GOT: This 1,682-square-foot residence is situated off a rear laneway at the back of a 50- by 125-foot lot that is also occupied by a larger house fronting onto West 14th Avenue.

This 20 year-old residence comes with a strata title for a third of the land, so it has a compact plan with a fireside living room, a central dining area and a recently renovated kitchen, as well as a second floor master retreat with vaulted ceilings and a second gas fireplace, and a lower level bedroom with eight-foot ceilings.

Conveniences include three updated bathrooms – one per floor – and direct access to a garage.

THE AGENT’S TAKE: “It is a very unique coach house in a fantastic Kitsilano location,” says Mr. Roy. “Whether you're going to restaurants, shopping on West 4th Avenue or tanning at the beach, Kits is a great lifestyle choice.”

In terms of the extraordinary attributes of this home, there were many. “This coach house is a very high-quality home with fir floors, an amazing spa-inspired en suite and a fantastic open-planned kitchen that has a gas range on the island looking over the dining and living rooms and out the French Doors to the private patio,” says Mr. Roy.

“Coach houses are a great option for moving up or down the property ladder without living in a townhome and not having to manage a really big house.”
