The Two Dorothies - 2816-2822 W. 41st Ave, Vancouver, BC

THE STORY: The Two Dorothies were 1930s-era houses on the City of Vancouver's 'B' heritage list, but were saved from demolition after a creative plan to move and restore these two homes was put forth to the city of Vancouver's planning department. The two Tudor-style houses were both named 'Dorothy' after the wives of their first owners, who lived in the homes on adjacent side-by-side properties beginning in the 1930's. It's truly a pleasure to see creative applications being used to preserve Vancouver's rich history. The Two Dorothies are now the focus and part of a unique 8 unit townhome development with 2 homes in each Dorothy, and 4 half duplex style contemporary homes set in behind on this large Kerrisdale lot. The Two Dorothies were featured on CBC News: A Limited Collection of 8 Luxury Townhomes located in the heart of Kerrisdale's shopping district and desirable school catchments. 4 of the Townhomes are heritage revitalized Tudor Style 1/2 duplexes encompassing the character of yesterday with the modern design of today . Behind the Two Dorothies are 4 Architectural contemporary 1/2 duplex style townhomes with sophisticated interiors and high end finishings. These homes are currently under construction and will be ready to move in soon. Ranging in size from 1450 to 2460 square feet, is a mix of 2 bedroom and den and 3 bedroom homes. This is the ideal choice for young families or downsizers who want to remain in this affluent Westside neighbourhood without compromise. A rare opportunity to be part of Vancouver's rich history.
