Specs: Four-bedroom, two-bathroom heritage home located one block from the restaurants and shops on Main Street and within walking distance to Hillcrest community centre, Nat Bailey Stadium and Queen Elizabeth Park. General Wolfe elementary school is also one block away. "Younger working families live in the neighbourhood," said realtor Ryan Hawk of TRG Realty. "The main focus here, I would say, is quality of life and people not overextending themselves and having a comfortable house to live in." Completely rebuilt in 2006, the 1,555 square-feet home is one of five City of Vancouver-classified heritage houses along the sloping stretch of East 27th. The row of houses was built in 1912. Isabella Shirley had her son James Alexander Shirley build the houses and the family maintained ownership until 1962. Gross taxes for 2013 are $3,245 and strata maintenance fees are $199.
