In the early 70’s, when Austin Avenue at Linton was blocked by a ravine, City Planning created a subdivision anomaly! It completely isolated a city lot from fronting on any city street The property is completely surrounded, protected by five other contiguous homes making the location unique. As a result, the actual lot is a beautiful oasis of serenity and seclusion, .27 acres of wheelchair-accessible space, made considerably larger by the planning anomaly. It sits back at least 150 feet from any roadway. This lot will forever be a valuable piece of real estate, offering considerable future building opportunities!
This huge lot in central Coquitlam has an equally large 3700 square foot, one owner, custom built home. Completely updated, with many historical artifacts included in the upgrade, the home presents a well-appointed design. It further boasts a large two-bedroom in-law suite with separate entrance. Recent upgrades would easily allow for a second suite or building an additional 1500 square foot of dream space. The home begs for extended family residents!
Over the years the original owner has used the house as a “bed and breakfast” location, and during Expo 86 it housed many guests. Over the years it has also housed several home-stay students.
The property is completely landscaped. There are six separate deck and patio areas encompassing hundreds of square feet of outdoor entertainment possibilities. The lush mature gardens are awash with colour. Birds sing from the surrounding greenery, the sound of serene silence and privacy, unique to the home.
