It's rare in life to be able to truly experience the best of two different worlds, but there's a home listed for sale in North Vancouver where you can do just that -- it boasts the feel of a country home, but the location of an abode in a well-connected city.
Located at 593 Riverside Drive, the home is a three-minute drive from the Phibbs Exchange transit exchange, and a six-minute drive from an abundance of grocery stores and other retailers on both sides of Lynn Creek.
By car, it's also eight minutes from the Northlands Golf Course, and 10-minutes away from the bustling commercial area of Northern Burnaby, across the Iron Workers Memorial Bridge. Like we said: both worlds.
The home itself was originally built in 2003, with four bedrooms and seven bathrooms across 5,505 sq. ft of living space on a 45,564 sq. ft lot. It's currently asking $7,388,000.
The property is securely gated with a long driveway that extends the entire length of the property, providing an abundance of peace and quiet.
Inside, the living areas of the home are all spacious and modern; the kitchen is equipped with stainless steel appliances, and many of the beds and baths are designed in contemporary style, while still including some country-style nods -- think: double doors that look like barn doors.

Outside the home, a former 1,336 sq. ft horse barn has been converted into a second large living space and cabana, with its own entertainment area and kitchen.
That cabana is also surrounded by a salt-water pool, a spa pool, and a jacuzzi, not to mention an outdoor kitchen.
Our Favourite Thing
This home is stunning, but the yard surrounding it really seals the deal. The abundance of pools is impressive, and wouldn't fall short of those typically seen in mansions. Meanwhile, the garden is sprawling enough to be reasonably described as a small park, keeping the most avid of gardeners occupied for entire afternoons.
Another section of the property's yard also includes several garden patios, and a circular garden laid with numerous plots and pathways -- all this, plus a greenhouse.
All in all, this North Vancouver home provides ample space and privacy. It's the best of two worlds, which is another way of saying it's one of a kind.
