Patrick O’Donnell POUNDING THE PAVEMENT - 25 HOURS A DAY! Blessed with an astigmatism, buck teeth and a disproportionately small head, it was believed by many that Patrick would be best suited to the circus; never mind a career in Real Estate. However, not long after meeting Patrick it becomes apparent that his disproportionately small head is crammed with information and his enthusiasm for life combined with his ability to make you feel instantly comfortable allows you to forgive the buck teeth and ignore the astigmatism. You will Ànd yourself in the company of a genuine, well-mannered gentleman. Patrick, originally from England, arrived in Canada with a stunning work habit that took him to the top of every Àeld entered. In 1983 he started selling Real Estate and within two years he was the #1 Agent in his area and also the #1 Realty World Agent for Alberta. Not content to just sell houses, Patrick spent many hours working for the beneÀt of others and in 1992 was awarded the “Commemorative Medal” by the Governor General of Canada in recognition of his signiÀcant contribution to compatriots, community and to Canada. In 2001 Patrick and his wife moved to greener pastures in West Vancouver. Now a part of the Prudential Sussex team on the North Shore, Patrick is back pounding the pavement – 25 hours a day! When asked why a person would want to buy or sell through him, Patrick pleasantly summed up his 28-year career:

“From the time I wake up in the morning I am cognizant of the fact that people will forget what you said, they will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel”. Patrick O’Donnell Personal Real Estate Corporation Prudential Sussex West Vancouver

This home is on the market for the first time over 30 years and from the moment you enter you will be impressed by the large windows and expansive terraces. The southern orientation virtually erases the barriers between the indoor and outdoor spaces, while maximizing sun exposure. Nature is front and centre with mature trees and winding trails right outside your front door. Portions of the original foundation were used to build this unique three storey home which will accommodate any size family. Sentinel Hill in West Vancouver has some of the most spectacular views on the North Shore and this home is no exception. 270 degree views from Grouse Mountain all the way round to UBC including spectacular southern views of the Lions Gate Bridge, Stanley Park, and downtown. Urban conveniences are a stone’s throw away as Esquimalt is conveniently located to Park Royal and everything that West Vancouver has to offer. The home has options, opulence and value.

Welcome to 650 Roche Point Drive. This beautifully kept two storey home is actually one of the largest floor plans in the complex. There is grand drama with open 16ft ceilings to the living room, three bedrooms + three bathrooms and a large double attached garage. From the living room you have a nice private outdoor patio which will be perfect for those long summer evenings. Together with a space to feed the kids in the kitchen and put on the ‘Hoy Polloi’ in the dining room in the evening! Roche Point is situated within walking distance to the Parkgate shopping centre, seniors centre and library. This really is prime real estate right at the heart of one of the nicest locations in town.
