Urban meets suburban with this 2,832 sq. ft.
west side home, says agent Walter Wells.
"With its Yaletown style and Dunbar location,
this home sitting on the edge of Pacific Spirit Park,
Vancouver's 763 hectare nature park, is a unique offering," he
says, and, "at a selling price of just under $1.2-million, this

entrance to the UBC, so there is more car and bus traffic in
front of the home," he explains.
"Still, this was a great buy for a family
wanting to move into and raise their family in this upscale west
