Arthur Erickson. Waterfront. Kitsilano.
If you're interested in real estate in Vancouver and those three things don't interest you, that's...very unusual.
All three of those things are part of a home currently for sale on 3281 Point Grey Rd. It's one of his Point Grey Townhouses, designed in 1963 and built a couple of years later. The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home is feet from the ocean with wide views of English Bay.
The townhouses were built at the same time and posed an unusual challenge for Erickson, as they were connected, but for different people.
"The architectural problem was to discover a structural module that would unify these diverse elements," states his website. "This was accomplished by using clusters of brick columns to form hallways, bathrooms, closets, storage areas, etc., and spanning the larger spaces between with wood beams and joists."
All of that is still in place now.
While there are amazing views out over the water, the opposite side of the house offers a private courtyard at ground level, and a patio in the trees.
Along with the impressive specs comes an impressive price. It's currently listed at $14.8 million.
