Welcome to Hillside located at number 2040 on Vancouver’s prestigious South West Marine Drive.
Situated on 64,500 square feet of beautifully landscaped grounds, this gorgeous Cape Cod colonial style home was custom built for the Buckerfield family in 1926.
Rich with history and tradition, the Hillside residence features over 8,000 square feet of family living with six bedrooms, and multiple great rooms, making the home an entertainer’s paradise. Stunning south-facing views of the Gulf Islands, Marine Drive golf course and the Fraser River are available from all levels.
This stately home was once used as a show-home for the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, and has been host to many famous members of the international music community over the years. Surrounded by lush and manicured gardens that lead down to the golf course, Hillside is wonderfully secluded and private, with a gated entry off SW Marine Drive.
The main level offers an abundance of grand living, family and dining areas. Entering the home from the main entry foyer, you pass a sweeping staircase to the second level, and enter the sun drenched formal living room, with gas fireplace. Next you pass through a large-sun room used as a games room, a first growth fir-paneled formal dining room with a wood burning fireplace and a cozy family room that leads to a covered patio and also to the large kitchen and a casual family dining area.
The kitchen was fully renovated in 2005 and is equipped with a Wolf gas range, two dishwashers, two sinks, both with waste disposal, and a large island.
There are a total of six bedrooms and eight bathrooms over four
levels. The glorious master bedroom on the second level features a luxurious ensuite bathroom with a free standing soaker tub, custom walk-in closet, wood burning fireplace and private south facing deck with views. There are three additional second floor bedrooms each with full private ensuite bathrooms, and an open plan office and study area that leads to the two top-floor bedrooms that share a cheery Jack and Jill bathroom.
The lower level is home to a spacious laundry room, recreation room, gym, sauna, mud room, bathroom and main mechanical room. Next to the house is a separate two car garage. The property also has a large secure storage shed for garden equipment and tools.
