Welcome to the Simpson House, a gorgeous and roomy 1909 Victorian cottage nestled on a spacious 51- by 148-foot lot in New Westminster’s historic Queen’s Park neighbourhood. 

Offering more than 3,300 square feet of turn-key living space, this immaculate family home features four bedrooms and four full bathrooms. Enter through the original arched door into a warm and inviting foyer featuring high ceilings and fir floors. The foyer opens to a lovely light-filled living room complete with a new gas fireplace, restored surround and vintage Moe Bridges wall sconces. Leaded French doors in the living room lead to a spacious dining room, perfect for entertaining, which opens to the spacious kitchen equipped with a large centre island, stone countertop, stainless steel appliances and eating nook. Off the kitchen is a large family room (wired for surround sound) with a gas fireplace — a great place for family movie nights. You’ll love the 8-foot triple-glazed Euroline tilt and turn French doors that open from the family room on to a spacious covered back deck with built-in heater. A lower floor mudroom complete with storage, sink and counter space provides a great entry point from the back yard, especially after spending time outdoors. Also on the main level are two bedrooms, one used as a main floor office/den and the other a large master bedroom with walk-in closet, separate ensuite and French doors that also open to the back deck. Another full bathroom with clawfoot tub and a laundry room complete  the main level. 

Head upstairs and you’ll find two good-sized bedrooms, a full bathroom, separate study and reading nook, all of it bright and open with new skylights.

Downstairs is even more family space, with a recreation room, full bathroom and plenty of storage. 

This home also boasts an electric gate providing vehicle access to the back driveway and garage, which is wired for 220V power.

The home was completely upgraded in 2014 and the many upgrades include new wiring, new fir flooring, new high-efficiency furnace, new hot water tank, fresh paint throughout, new drain tiles, new paving stone driveway and new roof and gutters with smart screen.

Whether you’re a family looking to upsize or downsizers looking for a home where you can age in place, this is it. This lovely home is located in the city’s most sought-after neighbourhood in close proximity to schools, parks, shopping, services and transit.
