House of the Week: 54 Stanley Terrace
A modern Victorian with the possibility of even more "modern" alongside. This house includes an adjacent lot with plans for a home next door, allowing would-be purchasers the urban treat of ultimate NIMBY discretion. Located a couple of blocks from Trinity Bellwoods, this Victorian rises three storeys tall, merging throwback clawfoot features with shiny contemporary appliances and a pretty spectacular master suite.

Lot size: 33.73 x 64.70 ft
Ceiling height: 10.5 ft
Parking spaces: 2

Mixing new and old, steel and brick, making use of those reclaimed Victorian cast iron register grates cluttering antique stores. Good for those who plan to build next door and/or want to prevent others from building next door. Good also for Stanley Park dog enthusiasts.
MOVE ON IF:
You hate scrubbing graffiti off your garage door. You want a little open-concept for your million dollars. You think tiles should be on floors, not walls.
