Welcome to my new listing 8255 Pasco Road, West Vancouver!

This home sits on Pasco Road which is at the end of Horseshoe Bay drive, one of the most serene scenic drives in Canada.



With all the benefits of still being within the District of West Vancouver over homes further up the Sea to Sky corridor, Pasco Road is a hidden gem. It's all about lifestyle here, eagles soaring above and dolphins at play. Enjoy West Coast beauty at it's best from every principal room of this home.

Kayak or swim from your own dock, or just sit and enjoy the breathtaking views of Howe Sound and beyond. Sunsets are a spectacular ever changing light show here. 

Eventhough this home is amazingly private, everything you could ever need is close by. The village of Horseshoe Bay is just down Horseshoe Bay drive, great for a coffee or meal out. Caulfeild Shopping Centre is a short drive away with Safeway, liquor store, banks and medical clinic. Golfers will enjoy the proximity to Gleneagles Golf Course one of the most beautiful courses on the coast. The Gleneagles Recreation Centre offers fitness facilities and classes all 5 minutes away.


This home is a must see. Call me for more details. 604.783.5048

Rowena List of Getting it Together, was one of the speakers at our event this Tuesday evening at the Delbrook Rec Centre. Did you know that the average home contains 330,000 items? Well that's what we found out. So in order to keep all those items in order most of us need help! 

 

Rowena gave some great to tips on how to think about items as you look at them, when trying to pare down your belongings! Do I love it? Do I need it? Is it a just in case item? These questions can help you decide which to keep and which to toss or give away. Speaking of giving things away, Rowena has a vast database of organizations that will take donations of all kinds and she will even sell items on Craigslist for her clients, how great is that?

 

We will be doing another session in September, so if you are interested in attending next time, contact me and get on the mailing list for date and time information!

He also busted myths about reverse mortgages and explained how you can use them to your advantage in lots of situations.
