Space, versatility & convenience: Vancouver checks all boxes for families

Home shoppers looking for suburban space, flexibility, and convenience will find it at this neighborhood home in the Mill Plain area of eastern Vancouver. Quiet yet close to main thoroughfares, this five-bedroom property is close to everything busy families need and features the amenities they desire. And a versatile layout allows them to make the home their own.

Inside the front door, an open two-story foyer gives clear sightlines to the second floor and the back of the home. Natural light, columns, crown molding, and gallery-quality wall space make the area a fantastic place to display treasured artwork. The elegant touches continue with the wainscoting of the formal sitting room, which could also house a dining room or home office.

An atrium-style space off the main hall and kitchen offers an alternative room for dining, or a dedicated area for musicians and artists to practice. In the large kitchen, generous cabinet storage, as well as ample counter space, will please any home chef. Recessed lighting, arched entries into surrounding rooms, and windows in the breakfast nook flood the room with southwest-exposure light. Bar seating connects the kitchen to other rooms without sacrificing a designated area for food prep.

The family room downstairs is a cozy retreat with its fireplace and proximity to the kitchen. Upstairs, additional open space on the landing provides great option for a den, children’s play area, or work or study room. Even the massive master suite includes a private spot to lounge. Four additional bedrooms guarantee everyone has space to call their own in this home.

Outside, the large patio is ideal for big barbecues and intimate gatherings. The yard requires minimal maintenance, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t green spaces to enjoy. Nearby parks include a play yard on the next block, as well as Harmony Ridge Neighborhood Park and tennis courts, both a 10-minute walk down the street. Pacific Community Park — a 5-minute drive away — includes fields, a playground, a dog park, treed nature paths, baseball and softball diamonds, a community garden, and more. With Harmony Elementary School, Pacific Middle School, and Union High School minutes away, these spaces are hot spots for families enjoying beautiful Pacific Northwest seasons.
