744 Austin Avenue, Coquitlam, BC

'Welcome to 744 Austin Avenue in prestigious Coquitlam West. The interesting history of this 1936 home is overshadowed only by the beautiful renovation undertaken in 2012. This custom-built home was situated on acres of neighbouring land when created by Vancouver lawyer and former Vancouver Golf & Country Club President C.C. Smith as a country home for his family.
Sitting on over a third of an acre today, the property features a large in-ground pool, sunken hot tub, a cabana with changing room, dining and relaxing, a shed, and you will be impressed by the large driveway with parking for 4-6 cars and an RV, and even a walk-thru old growth forest.
The home greets you via foyer and living room with the most gorgeous original quarter-sawn, wide-plank, white oak solid wood floor in fantastic condition and highlight the wood burning fireplace and crown mouldings and bookended by the original double French doors. The wood burning fireplace that was built in 1935 and repointed during the renovation- is a favored feature by all that visit the home.
Pass through the quaint sunroom with doors down to the pool, or into the formal dining room which will bring all your special events to the next level.
The French country inspired kitchen is every chef’s dream filled with only the best of the best; Wolfe, Sub- Zero, and Asko. The finely crafted maple cabinets have secret storage areas and cleverly disguise the vent hood, spice racks, fridge, and dishwasher. Walk in pantry, heated floor, granite countertops, copper farmers sink, and travertine herringbone floors perfect this extraordinary kitchen that has ample daylight through the wall of mullioned windows. Don’t leave this room with seeing the antique 250 year old tile from a French Chateau in above the stove and take a peek out the window to the secret garden with fountain.
The Mudroom coming in off the driveway is designed with detail. The original oak parquet floors really set off the maple wood cabinetry. Plenty of storage is just the beginning for this room. How about the dog shower, animal feed cabinet, walnut benches and counters, recycling cabinet, communication centre, craft centre and personal cubbies for everyone in the family. This room was designed and built to support any busy family, parents especially - will love this room.
Showstopper alert! A hidden vintage library with more of the amazing solid oak floors, remote gas fireplace with original mahogany mantle, vaulted ceiling, built in wood shelving and secretary desk, built-in 130 old Belgian book cabinet, all highlighted with LED lighting and view to the secret garden. WOW! Head upstairs to the massive primary bedroom with walk-in closet, original fir solid wood floors, built-in closets, Juliette balcony. A stunning ensuite that features Carrera marble counter-tops and flooring, a dreamy stand-alone soaker tub, heated floors, custom cabinetry for vanities – and a makeup and hair center.
This floor also has a cozy study with built-in desk, double French doors, and exposed brick wall. Across the hall is a Jack and Jill bathroom with shower and heated travertine floors. There are another two large bedrooms on this floor. The room of high interest is the large theatre room with HD projector and 7.1 Dolby multi-speaker sound. More surprises greet you as you pass through the theatre room when you reach the games room (being used as an office) and a vintage snack kitchen with granite counter, bar sink, and original-restored wood cabinets. There is also a private rear deck off this snack kitchen.
The finished basement contains a room used as a guest bedroom/suite has a large lounge area, plenty of storage rooms, laundry room with old-school laundry chute, and a two-piece bathroom. Step outside and you find a separate entrance to the gym and 3-piece bathroom accessible to the pool users via concrete stairs.
