Building Info

The Crescent at 1490 McRae Avenue, Vancouver, BC, V6H 0B2 is a 15 townhouse complex by Arthur Bell Holdings Ltd. The Developer is restoring the heritage house on the property. Crossroads are Granville Avenue and McRae Avenue. The Crescent in close to Shaughnessy Park. Schools in the neighbourhood include L'Ccole Bilingue Elementary School, Maimorides School, Vancouver Premier College, BC Montessori Teachers College, York House School, Little Flower Academy and Emily Carr Elementary, to name a few. The Sunshine Market, Safeway and Choices Market are also close by.

A dream-team of local talent is responsible for the build and look of this project, including Formwerks Architectural's award-winning architect James Bussey, landscape architect Paul Sangha, general contractor Axiom Builders and interior designer Mona Foreman, of Sheffield Design Studio. The kitchens and laundry facilities contain top of the line appliances, like Wolfe ovens, microwaves, gas cooktops and fans, plus Sub-Zero fridges, freezer drawers and wine coolers, Asko
dishwashers and washer/dryers. The wood cabinets in the kitchens, as
well as the bathrooms and laundry rooms, are from German cabinetmaker
Eggersmann.

Stone countertops are in granite or marble, plus a huge pantry and lots of storage utilize all the kitchen space, especially with the rooms' 10-foot ceilings. No two units are exactly the same. "There are five different colour and style schemes, all installed, and they might appear only in one other unit, but with different woods for panelling, different handles, etc., so that every unit is unique and doesn't have that cookie cutter feel," explained Bell. All living and family rooms have gas fireplaces with a manufactured stone-surround that provide a nice, clean look, the largest unit having a third fireplace in the upstairs study.

Bedrooms are generously sized, each with their own bathroom. Master bedrooms have coffered ceilings and huge his-and-hers walk-in closets, meant to be customized. Perfect for shoe-lovers. Bathrooms have a variety of top of the line fixtures from manufacturers such as Kohler, Dornbracht, Grohe, and Toto. Walk-in showers are frameless glass enclosures, with hand-held and rain shower heads, the larger units also with deep soaker tubs.

Each home has a ground-floor private patio with a portion of covered space (a must here in rain-city) with brick herringbone pattern pavers and extensive landscaping with hydrangeas, ferns, plus gas connections for fire pits, barbecues and stereo hookups, all ready for entertaining. Roof decks are accessed through an opening skylight and the planter boxes with grasses and flowering azaleas provide perimeter security and privacy.

The Crescent's impressive grounds are gated and serene with pathways, waterfalls, bridges, pond with fountain, tall trees and benches for seating. Stone masonry throughout adds to the elegance of the property. Without a doubt, this new development maintains the integrity of the neighbourhood. "We've been told it looks like it's been here for years," says Brian Bell. That may well be his highest compliment.
