= marks the location of this home
Close to trendy Main Street with its coffee shops, antique stores, clothing shops and convenient supermarket only a few blocks away as well as liquor store and butcher. Walking distance to four major bus routes, Nat Bailey baseball stadium, Queen Elizabeth Park...and the 2010 Winter Olympics curling venue which is now a great community centre with a fabulous pool. A few minutes by car to wonderful beaches and half an hour will get you to the top of Grouse Mountain and great ski slopes as well as an incredible view. Whistler is a few hours away, the US border the same, Vancouver Island a picturesque ferry-ride and Canada's wine-country a good week-end trip.
