Heritage, a collection of twelve thoughtfully restored heritage townhomes, is set to host its grand opening on Saturday, January 27th in Vancouver. The elegant homes, by highly-regarded Formwerks Boutique Properties, feature unique one- to four-bedroom plus den and flex floorplans with modern finishes, while retaining their historical charm.
Nestled alongside Shaughnessy mansions on tree-lined West 16th Avenue, Heritage entails the restoration of three character homes that will be revamped into twelve new townhomes. The original homes date back to the early 1900s and were once part of a subdivision comprised of nine regal homes. After being restored, Heritage will offer contemporary living while staying true to the neighbourhood’s historical roots. To ensure superior quality and surpass modern needs, all residences will include new foundations, plumbing, electrical and fire protection measures.
To reflect the classic Arts and Crafts style of the early 1900s, the exterior of the homes will be restored with three distinct original colour schemes. The builder will also mindfully restore significant heritage features, including the beautiful stained-glass windows, gabled roof lines, decorative dormers, bay features and front entrance solid wood doors. Stunning landscaped paths will traverse the private outdoor spaces to accentuate the architectural features and offer privacy.
Inside the timeless homes, residents can choose from two authentically-designed palettes that reflect the homes’ historic roots: “Burrard” or “Granville”. The residences feature White Oak engineered wood floors, crown mouldings, detailed entablatures and substantial window and door casings. Residents will have the luxury of radiant in-floor heating throughout and select homes will feature a Montigo gas fireplace. All homes include an automated lighting control system with optional audio/visual automation.
Perfect for entertaining, the distinguished kitchens boast upscale finishes, including quartz countertops, brushwork mosaic tile backsplash, a manor house-style, aproned farmhouse sink and a stainless steel appliance package including a Wolf range and Fisher Paykel fridge.
An absolutely gorgeous spa-inspired master ensuite includes a relaxing soaker tub (freestanding in select homes), Waterworks Studio Highgate series exposed shower package in heritage-inspired polished nickel, a honed Bianco Carrara marble slab counter, and exclusive Bianco Venatino Gioia marble mosaic floor with Nero Marquina accents.
Set in the prestigious Fairview community, Heritage is conveniently located at West Sixteenth Avenue and Burrard Street. The homes are on the border of Shaughnessy, Kitsilano and South Granville, providing easy access to the best of what all three neighbourhoods have to offer. South Granville Shopping District is also nearby, along with a variety of restaurants, trendy boutiques, Vancouver General Hospital, schools and West 4th Avenue shopping. For travelling around the city, Heritage is only a few minutes drive to downtown Vancouver.
