Kerrisdale Gardens: In the Heart of a Distinguished Neighbourhood

January 30, 2015

Real estate in Vancouver’s tony Westside is hard to come by. One of the most exciting and luxurious Boutique Developments to be built in the heart of this prestigious neighbourhood is Kerrisdale Gardens.

In one of the best postal codes on Vancouver’s Westside, Kerrisdale Gardens is an exquisite collection of 27 designer residences, featuring two-bedroom terraced suites and one bedroom, den and flex space condominiums.

Behind the Kerrisdale Gardens are the award-winning European-influenced designers from Riesco & Lapres.  "For years, Riesco & Lapres has been beautifying the homes of Kerrisdale residents in ways that speak directly to the heart," says Charan Sidhu of Otezs Project Marketing. “They know the subtleties of what makes a home fit in this stunning neighbourhood.”

In addition to its prime location, you couldn’t ask for finer finishes: nine foot ceilings (10 foot in the penthouses), engineered hardwood flooring, luxurious wool blend carpeting, custom millwork, expansive windows to bring lots of natural light in, European-inspired epicurean kitchens and Zen-inspired bathrooms.

The kitchens feature custom designed cabinetry, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, including a Fhiaba fully integrated refrigerator, marble countertops with ¾ edge finish and under-the-cabinet puck lighting.

"While many people are currently downsizing from their large single family homes to more convenient one-level living, the suites here have been designed with that in mind," Sidhu says. "We often hear from downsizers that they don’t want to compromise their lifestyle, especially when guests are coming. Inviting people for dinner, family and friends, many condos lack a proper dining area. This feature has been incorporated into many of the homes without needing to entertain the highest priced or largest unit."

One of its most unique and sought-after features are the gardens on the second floor. This quiet and enchanting private oasis offers incredible outdoor space for the residences that face into this courtyard, of which there are only two left. Truly, this is one of the best outdoor havens you will find in a condominium building.

The discriminating people who have already purchased a home in Kerrisdale Gardens have boasted about the access to some of the province’s top schools, both public and private, the walkability of the neighourhood and the penthouses with private garages in the underground.

Each homeowner can feel safe knowing the four-storey building offers two levels of secure gated underground parking, plenty of secured storage lockers and ample bike storage. Convenience continues with two elevators for residents to access their homes.

As one of the oldest and most distinguished neighbourhoods in Vancouver you will find plenty of amenities including transit, top rated schools and recreational opportunities, all within easy walking or driving distance. Then there’s high-fashion to patisseries, gourmet cheeses to European décor, including such popular spots as Secret Garden for afternoon tea and neighbourhood favourite, the Red Onion Neighbourhood Grill.

These elegant, single-family-home-inspired residences must be seen to be fully appreciated. The sales centre, located at 2128 West 40th Avenue, Vancouver, is open by private appointment only. With only 14 available, these condominiums won’t last. Your brand new home will be move-in ready in Spring 2015. For more information or to view, call 604-559-9848, email or visit
