1920s Vancouver Home Given New Life with Extensive Renovation 

1427 40th Avenue W, Vancouver West, British Columbia, Canada

Heritage homes in Vancouver are torn down at an alarming rate to make way for new, boxy modern eyesores leaving little to no architectural history for future generations to enjoy.  Given the extremely inflated prices on these quaint, detail filled homes it’s hard for a developer to preserve and upgrade the homes while still making a decent profit.  Homes just like this one are torn down daily, just visit Vancouver Vanishes and you’ll see, so it’s an extremely rare sight to see one spared from demolition.  Thankfully one owner was able to see the beauty of this late 1920s Shaughnessy character home and decided to bring new life to the home with a complete upgrade & renovation.

 Sitting proud on a 6,810 square foot Vancouver lot is this gem spanning 4,695 square feet with 5 bedrooms & 4 bathrooms.  The extensive renovation by Award-Winning Hungerford Interior Design expanded the family home by nearly 1,000 square feet adding a lavish new master suite to the rear while upgrading every other square inch.  The exceptional renovation landed the home in magazines such as Western Living & Taste Of Life as well as taking the title of ‘Best Home’ in Homes for the Holidays.  Developer’s take note these are the results we can expect when a tired character home is given the respect it deserves.  While it may be more modern than what it was before, it’s definitely better than being torn down.  It’s listed at $5,388,000 CAD with Apartments To Acreages.  Scroll down to view all the photos.
