An Untouched 1970s A-Frame Wonder

The Gienger Residence in West Vancouver is on the market for the first time. The home has been lived in by the original owners/architects since 1971. And what a stunner it is! Is that plush carpeting I see in the living room? Look at the beautiful unstained cedar walls and exposed beams.

Original copper pendant lights and a burl bar.  I'd take the rope off the bar.
Original floor to ceiling stone fireplace and hand carved beams.
Spiral stair case and original brick kitchen. The floors look like they might have been replaced with unfortunate laminate. However, nothing appears to have been updated in the home so it could be the original hardwood floor. They're probably just well cared for as it looks like the rest of the home has been.
Are the burl table and chandelier included in the sale?
Sold me at the sunken purple bathtub! I'd rip that carpet out though. Carpet does not belong in washrooms. Gross. I'd put in a light colored heated stone floor of some sort.
There you have it. For more images check out the realtor's website. It would be a shame if the home was bought strictly to be torn down and replaced with the ever popular West Van Baroque Craftsman.

 

Remember these little guys?
