Property Description

8563 Ansell Place, Sunset Point, West Vancouver ... Large .515 Acre 360-degree view property, quick access to Sea to Sky Hwy, (Hwy 99) direct route; 25 minutes to Stanley Park and downtown Vancouver, BC. July 1st, 2021, Property Assessment $2,498,000

The property is approximately 75 ft. wide on Ansell Place (East side, front of property), opening-up to 102 ft. on the ocean view side (West side) by approx. 260 ft. deep. Over 1/2 an acre, approximately 22,500 square feet of property with boulevard - of unobstructed views for your canvas. Building Area has been excavated down to solid rock and property slants down towards the Ocean facing West South/West and delivers amazing Sun Sets year round.

For those that are not local or unfamiliar of this area of West Vancouver I have attempted to describe it and property in detail herein.

The property has been cleared, surveyed and is waiting for a new home. The purchase of this property comes with 2 sets of different plans for an Architecturally designed 3 story home, both homes are between 5,000 and 6,000 sq. ft. including a 850 sq. ft. lower level walk-out suite with large decks. Property sports a 360-degree ocean, mountain and sunset views. The property slopes down to the lot line on the south/westside, below the property line the land slopes steeply down to the oceanfront and a waterfront home which is not visible, Mr. Ansell's old house. The view from property is directly down and out to the ocean and feels like waterfront. The view is a forever view out to Vancouver Island in the South and up Howe Sound to the Tantalus Mountain Range to the north with peaks of 8,500 ft.... snow capped mountains as seen in one of the photos and views of Bowen, Gambier, Anvil and Bowyer Islands. Lots of Sun, in fact if the Sun is shining on the any day of every month- you will see a Sunset every month of the year... that why this area is called Sunset Point and is just south of to Sunset Marina.

When thinking of property in West Vancouver, what do you think? Some thoughts maybe, luxury, safety, Ocean and Mountain views, access to great shopping, eateries, and privacy. West Vancouver has all that and more, no rush hour, great beaches, and parks, ski hills, mountain bike and hiking trails, waterfront restaurants and promenades and a close connection to nature.

8563 Ansell Place provides all the conveniences of West Vancouver, while enjoying the tranquility and security of a no exit, private cul de sac, less than a minute away from the Sea to Sky Hwy that boots (only one traffic light at Marine and Taylor Way, that's it) you to Lions Gate bridge and downtown to what is the International Metropolis of Vancouver in 20 to 25 minutes or head north along one of the most beautiful drives, called "Sea to Sky" Hwy (Hwy hugs Howe Sound with views of ocean and up to the mountain tops in the sky) to the world class ski resort that is Whistler, BC in 1 hour. This No exit, neighborhood is reserved for only a handful of single family residents, located on the slope of Cypress Mountain Ski Resort, and nestled on the oceans edge. This prime location provides spectacular close-in 360 - degree ocean and mountain views, clean quiet streets and pride of ownership neighbors.

Just a 5-minute jaunt to the Seaside Community of Horseshoe Bay offering many restaurants, pub, coffee houses, marina, Whyte Cliff Park and the BC Ferry service to transport you to Vancouver Island, Sunshine Coast or Bowen Island. Hop on a Ferry to Bowen Island (20 minute ride) for a quick day or evening trip across beautiful Howe Sound, a fiord surrounded by snow-capped mountains to enjoy the many sites, eating and drinking establishments for a different night out. Doc Morgan's Pub, Bowen Island Pub, Snug Cafe, Tuscany

5 minutes away you'll find "Someplace Special" the Safeway grocery store in Caulfield Village mall or continue on Hwy 99 to Taylor Way for 10 minutes heading to Lions Gate bridge and arrive at Park Royal Shopping Centre, where you'll find la Maison's Simons, Whole Foods, Home Depot, the Bay, Best Buy and many restaurants, services, theatres and more. Or turn left on Marine Drive and you are at the entrance to Lions Gate Bridge, Stanley Park and Downtown Vancouver. Hang a right off Taylor Way and find the community of Ambleside Beach offering beautiful seascape, sand, picnic areas, Happy Hours establishments, arts center and Sunday Farmers Market and a long sandy swimming beach You can walk all the way to the beach community of Dundarave, walking along West Vancouver's Oceanside, Sea-walk.

8563 Ansell is a large private half acre semi waterfront property, a rare someplace special like no other location. You won't need a recreational property because the neighborhood of Sunset Point is a home and recreational retreat wrapped into one location, you can have it all, right here. Nature's beauty surrounds you, trees, water and fresh air, serenely and quiet. This little jewel of paradise is waiting for someone to call home.

Of Special Note: Ansell Place offers a Mediterranean type of climate zone, with less than 75 inches of rain per year. The 'zone' runs from North of Lions Bay community (5minutes North along Sea to Sky Hwy) all the way-around to Light House Park in West Vancouver. This climate zone contains many Arbutus trees, due to the weather pattern/climate zone of Howe Sound and surrounding mountains. This area has less rain, more clear sky's than the Eastern half of the North Shore, the very reason Arbutus trees thrive here. The climate area of Sunset Beach gets half the rainfall of some parts of the North Shore... that's a bonus.

The owners of 8563 Ansell have genuinely enjoyed this wonderful spot and special neighborhood for over 30 years, while watching passing BC Ferry's, Cruise Liners, private yachts, dolphins jumping and whales spouting. Walking down to the private beach and Marine Park or hiking the many trails of Cypress Park or maybe heading to Horseshoe Bay for a pint. Where can you find such a distinct property within a 20-minute drive to an international cosmopolitan city centre as Vancouver, serene privacy, views and proximity to nature... I truly believe they just do not make property like this anymore. That's the great story of 8563 Ansell Place, Sunset Point. Not just a lot for sale but a life style for those who want to live with nature yet close to all Vancouver offers.

Lot prices in West Vancouver: To give some perspective, when I did a search in November 2022 the average price was over $5 million for a West Vancouver bare land lot and the average cost per square foot of land was Approximately $275 per square foot. 8563 Ansell is listed at $127.00 per sq. ft. of land and would have make it the least expensive lot per sq. ft. in West Vancouver.

Property is For sale by owner. I will happily deal with your "Buyer Agent" or directly with purchaser. Offers Welcome. 604 921 6533.

All the best in your search for that special property... Robb
