This renovation by William Edward Summers at West Point Grey, and Collingwood near Kits, and Jericho beaches in Vancouver,was designed for an heiress,and her husband. The large old house was gutted down to the bare studs and completely redesigned. It was a heritage designated building, so the exterior could not be modified. However the interior was completely altered, with the living, dinning, and kitchen areas moved to the second floor, to take advantage of the view of English Bay, and downtown Vancouver.
