From the Turn of the Century
Built during Vancouver's "golden years", the original Jeffs Residences is a testament to the Grandview-Woodlands area's prestigious history.
Hot on the heels of the Klondike gold strike, Vancouver enjoyed a measure of affluence and ease in the early 1900s. It was during this time that Grandview Hill, as it was then known, flourished. With its unobstructed mountain views and proximity to centres of trade and transport, the city's finest families built lavish estate homes in the neighbourhood. One of these citizens was Dr. Thomas William Jeffs—first a physician, then city alderman, and later, Vancouver police commissioner. The Jeffs home has stood at the corner of Salsbury and Charles since its completion in 1907.
Vibrant Commercial Drive
With an established and abundant array of shops, services, and community offerings, Commercial Drive is one of Vancouver's most diverse and amenable neighbourhoods.
The varied amenities of The Drive reveal a rich cultural history, one that is unique amongst Vancouver neighbourhoods. Italian delicatessens and European-style cafes, organic grocery stores and family-run ethnic restaurants abound. Independent boutiques house treasures untold. A recreation centre and numerous parks offer fun for the whole family. Annual summer festivals bring locals from all walks of life to celebrate together. It's all within walking distance of The Jeffs Residences.
Stately Modern Interiors
Contemporary craftsman design pairs with classic styling. The Jeffs Residences offers refined living with a welcoming feel.
Both Townhomes and Manor residences combine fresh, open-concept floor plans with traditional layouts, resulting in comfortable spaces to live and grow. Ranging from 1165-square-feet to 1351-square-feet, each Townhome provides ample room for evolving families, while the bright, efficient floorplans of the Manor residences allow for modern living at its finest.
Refined Living Space
Superior details and finishes provide a sense of everyday ease and sophistication.
From the wide-plank, engineered matte oak hardwood floors to the brushed nickel drawer pulls and stone surfaces, every interior detail has been carefully selected for the modern urban lifestyle. Gourmet kitchens feature high-end, energy-efficient appliances, while tranquil bathrooms in luxurious natural finishes offer repose. Character charm is evident through the oversized baseboards, 9-foot-high ceilings, and craftsman-style entries with unique, above-entry transom windows.
A Central Locale
Whether by public transit or private means, every part of the city is conveniently within reach.
Not only is The Jeffs Residences located at the heart of lively Commercial Drive, it is moments away from all the amenities offered throughout the city. Enjoy a relaxed evening out on The Drive, indulge in the posh eateries, watering holes and boutiques of Gastown, or peruse the antique shops on Main Street—coffee in hand.
