The Griffith

This renovated 1910 landmark boasts 7,662 square feet of modern living space with all the splendour of its original Art Deco design.

The only original home to remain at Edgecliffe Estate, the renovated Griffith blends rich tradition with modern amenities. The exterior is designed with distinct wooden and stone finishing to reflect its heritage, along with traditional board and batten trim.

Originally designed and built in 1910 by Henry Sandham Griffith, noted architect of Spencer’s Castle and the Vancouver Board of Trade building, the renovated Griffith remains true to the essence of the original home built so many years ago.
