This Kitsilano house, 2261 Waterloo St, came up for sale early this week. It’s sitting on a smaller than average 41′ x 55′ lot (most lots are 33′ x 120′) which is mostly notable in the size of the yard and the lack of any garage or parking stall. The house is zoned RS-7 so there is still some opportunity to add square footage to the house, specifically in adding another floor. The houses on either side of 2261 Waterloo each have an upper level (along with the basement and main level), with one of the houses topping out at 2300 sqft. Take a look at a photo of 2261 Waterloo (the blue house) and it’s neighbour – the height difference is notable:

This isn’t the only small lot in Kitsilano – you’ll notice that most blocks have something similar (as per VanMaps, a program that shows zoning and lot sizes in Vancouver):

2261 Waterloo St: House Details

The main floor at 2261 Waterloo St consists of the living space with wood fireplace, kitchen and small dining area. Two bedrooms ( which can also function as an office or extra space) along with a full bath.

The basement consists of a large living room, two bedrooms and a full bathroom. The basement can be suited if a kitchen was installed (thanks to a private entrance), however due to the low ceiling height (7feet) and a few other reasons, it wouldn’t be authorized by the city (most basement suites in kits are unauthorized).

There is a laundry room in an area between the main floor and basement. The backyard is a nice size, with space for a patio, grass and garden, which continues through to the front yard. There is no lane in the back but you face the backyard of the houses behind

The entire house was basically gutted in 2006, with updates to a few other components in the past few years, so the house should be in good shape for a few years to come.

For more information and photos, see 2261 Waterloo St in Kitsilano. This Sellers will be looking at offers on Sunday April 30 at 6pm, and I expect this home to garner multiple offers, thanks to it’s updates and low price point allowing many people a chance to get a Detached home in Kitsilano for less than the average price.
