    For many years, ghostly tales abounded regarding the home at 4118 Cambie Street. “The story goes that it was either an ancient burial ground or there was a man who murdered his elderly mother there,” blogger Michael Kwan wrote back in 2011. Kwan related that “everyone who inhabited the home since then has experienced strange occurrences”. “We’ve heard stories of luggage being left out on the lawn, baby cribs pushed precariously to the edge of windows, shadowy footsteps walking up the exterior walls, families sleeping only to wake up on the lawn, and more,” the writer behind the Beyond the Rhetoric site noted at the time. “I hear that Buddhist monks live there and the house is ‘clean’ of spirits, but I still get chills,” Kwan added. Daily Hive also wrote about the various haunted stories relating to this property: 1. It sits on a First Nations burial ground: Legend has it that the original settlers of these lands don’t want you disturbing their final resting place. 2. The couple, the baby, and the crib: The new occupants of the house put their baby in its crib one night. They went back to their rooms, and soon after they heard the baby screaming and crying. The couple ran into the nursery to find the baby at the edge of the window sill. 3. The family that just moved in: A new family that finished their big move into the house went out for dinner. But when they returned, they found all of their luggage and clothes folded and packed neatly, and they took it as an ominous sign warning them to leave. 4. The family on the lawn: A new family had just moved in and went to sleep in their new home. The next day, they woke up on the lawn with all their boxes and suitcases next to them. 5. The woman in the window: A passerby on a bike saw a “For Sale” sign on the front lawn. The realtor had just finished an open house, locked up, and was leaving for the day. The passerby asked if the house had been sold, she replied, “no, not yet. Not much interest in this place, if you know what I mean.” Moments later, the passerby saw a lady-like figure passing by the second storey window.
