Located in the leafy north Vancouver neighborhood of Edgemont Village, the lot on which their home is located was purchased by the Joneses at the beginning of 2017. After two years of construction, they moved into the new build. The home, which was designed by the residential architecture firm Su Casa Design, is nestled between the 4,000 foot-tall Grouse Mountain and the Burrard Inlet that leads to the Pacific Ocean. It is, as one would imagine, the ideal setting for a recently retired professional athlete. “You can ski, swim, and play golf—all on the same day,” says David Jones, whose star career spanned from 2007 to 2016, and included time with the Colorado Avalanche, Calgary Flames, and Minnesota Wild. “Sure, it’ll be a little cold to do all three in a day … but there aren’t many places in the world where people have those outdoor options. For us, it’s perfect.”
