This 750 sq ft. Arbutus Laneway House will serve first as a family home while the main home on the lot is renovated. Later, it will become a residence for extended family. On request of the homeowner — her minivan is in constant use shuttling children — the lane house was modified to remove access into the living space from the garage.
Like all of our Arbutus’s, this home has vaulted ceilings and plenty of windows creating an open and airy feel throughout. The main level has a generous wrap around kitchen, dining area and a cozy livingroom as well as a full bath with laundry. On the upper level there is a generous bedroom as well as a smaller second bedroom or den/office, both with built-in closets, as well as a second full bath.
