RARE opportunity to live in Vancouver’s most famous gardener and garden personality, Thomas Hobbs' former home. This is not a typical West Coast home by any stretch. Rather, it evokes the sun-baked villas of the Mediterranean, with its tiled terrazzas, and tropical plantings. The house, with its pink stucco walls and arched windows, is reminiscent of Old Hollywood. Truly and utterly a one of a kind home.
This spectacular Spanish Colonial Revival home, built in 1933, is beautifully situated on a 7,384 sq ft property perched above Spanish Banks with panoramic water, city & mountain views. It was custom built w/many unique architectural features & gorgeous gardens. The kitchen, baths, heating have been updated more recently.
If you love and appreciate alot of detail and character in a home, this is the one for you. The interior of this unique, eclectic home features a mix between Mediterranean, Moroccan and Medieval influences...with 3 Bedrooms, 3 baths & incredible views of Spanish Banks, English Bay and Downtown.
The main has spacious rooms on a floorplan designed for entertaining. The lower level was extensively updated and features a gym room, laundry and the original country style rec room w/ stone fireplace & log walls. Private patio with sublime sunset views of the city & jetted spa pool.
