New property listed at 501 VETERANS RD in Gibsons.
Profiled in the Globe & Mail as a model for sustainable development, this 5 Bed 4 bath Rancher with separate ground level revenue suite is in a fantastic family neighbourhood! The fully renovated upstairs home (originally built in 1961) was upcycled and barged to the Sunshine Coast from Coquitlam -- saving 120 trees from the landfill. Adding a brand new basement doubled the square footage and created a mortgage helper/in-law suite for the lucky new owners. The home produces approx 80% of its own energy needs through solar panels on the sloped garage roof. Adding to the sustainability features, there is an EV [electric vehicle] car hook up, a rainwater catchment system and veggie boxes for fresh produce on site. Situated in the Cedar Grove Elementary catchment and walking distance from Bonniebrook beach and Upper Gibsons, the home is also 7 minutes drive from the ferry terminal and 20 from Sechelt and the float plane terminal to Downtown Vancouver.
