Hollyburn Mews is NOT SOLD OUT!
Well, the landscaping is nearing completion and I'm pleased with the way things are turning out. So in the coming weeks, Elaine Biggan, my Sales Associate, will show the remaining five duplexes and two coach houses by appointment.
As Hadani Ditmars noted in her Globe and Mail story, the planning concept which combines duplexes and coach houses on former single family lots in an established single family neighbourhood is innovative, especially for West Vancouver. http://tinyurl.com/cje8zw8
Hollyburn Mews has been designed and constructed for households who are ready to downsize, but not downgrade! It is located in the 2000 Block Esquimalt Avenue, one block north of Marine Drive, close to the shops and services of Ambleside and Dundarave Villages and steps away from the West Van Community Centre complex and West Vancouver United Church. The homes range in size from 1810 square feet to 2490 square feet. Careful consideration has been given to the layouts and details, including features to make the homes both accessible and sustainable.
These include stairs designed for chair lifts if required in the future, gas powered 'combi boilers that provide in-floor radiant heat and on-demand domestic hot water http://tinyurl.com/cw4ozmv,
heat recovery ventilation which offers improved energy efficiency and indoor air quality http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_recovery_ventilation.
The homes feature state-of-the-art kitchen appliances including a remote-controlled dual drawer dishwasher, an under-counter wine fridge, and panelled double door European liebherr refrigerators http://www.liebherr-appliances.com/
I've also included details that hark back to a by-gone era, including dutch doors, wainscoting, porches front and back, and the extensive use of carrera marble.
Architects are Formwerks; the landscape architect is Jane Durante; the contractor is Trasolini-Chetner and the interior staging of the model home is by Decora. Engineers include Nemetz Associates-Electrical, Thomas Leung-Structural, Creus-Civil and Level 5-Envelope. Davies Geotechnical is responsible for the significant extra costs I incurred to ensure the buildings will never settle and basements will not leak!
