Did you know that researchers cannot agree on an exact definition for “neighbourhood?!” Some say it is “a geographically localized community within a larger city, town, suburb or r
ural area.” While others say that neighbourhoods are “the spatial units in which face-to-face social interactions occur—the personal settings and situations where residents seek to realise common values, socialise youth, & maintain effective social control.”
I can make it much easier to understand… To define “neighbourhood,” look no further than the homes and their occupants around 66 East 23rd Avenue in Vancouver, BC. Why this address in particular?… Because this is finally, the lot you have been waiting for! This is a rare opportunity to build your dream home in a niche that feels like a small town, yet offers all the amenities of the city.
For me, I have fond memories of my childhood neighbourhood & the deep sense of community that we celebrated. Not since then have I experienced that wonderful phenomenon. But it does exist… Right here in Vancouver, just 1 block west of Main Street; where people know the names of kids & pets, gather to paint street banners, celebrate with block parties, host workshops to share skills and meet to exchange soup, seeds and recipes. It’s as close to “the perfect lot in the perfect neighbourhood” that you can get.
This is a 42′ X 100′ double-fronted lot. The front, faces the quirky charm of East 23rd (aka Daphne Lane) which curves, buffering the block from through traffic. And the back? The sunny back yard faces the front of East 24th Avenue and is ideal for BBQs, veggie plots and children’s play. Equally divine for a peaceful hammock.
This very quiet location is just steps from all the quaint shops, diverse restaurants and cafes galore along coveted Main Street and with the right plans, you have the potential to build up to a 3150 sq. foot home – your Dream Home!
With a Walk Score of 95, you’ll be close to transit; a ten minute walk to the Canada Line and most importantly, a short stroll to the farmer’s market. Hop on your bike to enjoy all that Hillcrest Community Centre has to offer including a Pool & Library or stroll over to catch a game at Nat Bailey Stadium or play tennis at Queen Elizabeth Park.
This is a unique opportunity to come home to a taste of “yesteryear…” Don’t hesitate… this extraordinary lot will no doubt have a “SOLD” sign in no time. Surely you want more information… Contact me: Rhonda Sacks mobile 604-785-4145 or email [email protected]
