Historic 'Varley House' on Rice Lake Road

Just beyond Lynn Valley Road and connected to the trails of Lynn Canyon sits this piece of local history, once home to Frederick Varley of the 'Group of Seven'.  Set on rarely available Rice Lake Road, and situated amongst lush west coast rainforest, this rustic 1,300 sq/ft 2-bedroom residence has maintained much of its charm and character. The updated main floor offers an open plan with overheight ceilings, and includes a renovated kitchen (2012) with stone counters and stainless steel appliances, a dining room with french doors providing access to the back of the property, and highlighted by a cosy Efel cast iron gas fireplace that can heat the entire home. A spacious entry hall, 4-piece bathroom, and corner bedroom complete the main level. The upper level offers a large bedroom - with the potential to create a 3rd bedroom - along with a plumbed and roughed-in bathroom ready for your renovation ideas. A terraced pathway, inviting front porch, and back yard with tons of potential create a high degree of connectivity to the outdoors in which Varley painted some of his most acclaimed pieces. Additional improvements to the home include the roof (2009), furnace (2013), and updated electrical panel. Step outside your door straight onto the Baden Powell, a short walk to Upper Lynn Elementary and End of the Line General Store, and a quick drive to all the amenities at Lynn Valley Village Centre. Loved for and stewarded by the current owners for many years, this is a truly unique opportunity to own a home in North Vancouver. Showings by appointment only - please do not walk on the property.
