Chesterman Properties

Five, exterior


Five is a collection of five detached residences located in the popular Main Street/Riley Park neighbourhood of Vancouver. Chesterman Properties purchased the five 1912 houses which had been badly “abused” over the years. We carefully re-built the homes, bringing back their original appearance and the City placed them on the Vancouver Heritage Register. During the re-building process we incorporated numerous green building benefits including: significant energy savings by way of “on-demand” in-floor heating system, high efficiency wood windows, and Energy Star appliances; improved indoor environment with healthy interior finishes including low VOC paints, carpets and cabinetry; and reduced resource use with sustainably harvested wood as certified by the Forrest Stewardship Council (FSC). The anticipated reduction in green house gas emissions is 12 tonnes per home per year. Most importantly, Five is now home to five families who love their homes.
