A cool outlook from this private, quiet and really spacious two bedroom plus den loft home in Mount Pleasant. Setting this home apart is its smart layout, its huge interior volume with over-height ceilings and a second floor loft, and of course the top location.
Northern and Eastern exposures provide great light through all seasons and makes this corner home open, airy, bright. The balcony, kitchen, dining area, and main living space gets great direct sun in the morning.
This top floor, corner home is extremely private too, with no sight-lines into the space. The view is interesting and varied with glimpses of the port, the downtown skyline, and the surrounding neighbourhoods.
The layout is efficient and the proportions/ dimensions of the rooms make this home feel house-like.
The kitchen/ dining room area is efficiently laid out with excellent light from the east facing windows. The dining area opens into the living room featuring dramatic vaulted ceilings. From here, a spiral staircase accesses the loft.
The loft is large and has enough space for a bedroom area and an office/ den. There’s even an additional limited height area running out over the east side of the living room that could work as a second office space, storage, kids loft, etc.
Natural light is excellent in the loft thanks to a very large skylight that just pours light into the unit. The skylight also opens and can provide an excellent cross-breeze through the entire home.
The primary bedroom is on the main level and is very large by today’s standards. That's a king-sized bed featured in the photos. There’s plenty of storage in the big closet.
The balcony is also quite large and wraps around the corner of the building. It extends the inside living space outdoors making the suite feel larger than its already generous square footage suggests.
The location is top-notch with all the amenity the neighbourhood is known for within walking distance. Main Street, Broadway, and Commercial Drive shopping, restaurants, night spots, etc., are all close by. Great Northern Way is just down the hill, with established and emerging tech and education outposts (VCC, Emily Carr) and the upcoming Broadway line Skytrain.
Hyper-local favourites include Paper Crane Coffee, Nada (the packaging free grocery store), Main Street and Brassneck breweries, The Whip, Como… Taperia, and Rooster’s Ice Cream. The Golden triangle is close by as well, with great stops like Savio Volpe, Les Faux Bourgeois, Sal Y Limon, Bells and Whistles, etc. There are also a lot of parks nearby which is great for kids and adults alike.
The sheer convenience of the neighbourhood with its services, shopping, green spaces, and easily accessible transit make this a perfect spot if you are wanting to minimize the use of a car.
Transit is excellent with east/ west routes on Broadway. The Skytrain is just down the hill. Biking is fantastic in all directions from this location with dedicated routes criss-crossing the area. Check out the Walkscore tab above for more details.
The strata is described as responsive and active. The building has seen regular, progressive maintenance and upgrades over the years. The elevator was replaced about 10 years ago, the common areas have been renovated, electrical end points throughout the building were replaced last year, and Telus fibre optic was also recently installed.
The community is described as neighbourly and friendly. Seasonal decorations pop up in the common areas throughout the year and neighbours take on common area gardening projects.
This unit includes a secure storage locker and one parking space. Rentals are allowed with limitations. Pets are allowed with some restrictions.There is ample bike parking in the secure underground parkade.
This is a private, quiet and spacious home in one of the most popular neighbourhoods in the city. With a great layout over two levels, a thoughtful balance of open and enclosed spaces, and some pretty dramatic ceiling heights, this home strikes a balance between the emotional appeal of an artist’s loft and the practicalities of a more traditional layout. It’s certainly a unique space that will appeal to many.
