Up for your consideration is this corner unit two bedroom city home in the heart of the vibrant Hastings Sunrise neighbourhood. Setting this home apart is its outstanding functional layout, its brand new renovation, great light, and its excellent location.
Inside you’ll find an outstanding and functional layout with two bedrooms, one bathroom, two balconies, and in-suite laundry. This home has just been renovated, with new plank flooring, designer paintwork, contemporary light fixtures, recessed lighting, a new kitchen, a new bathroom, all new finishing carpentry, new blinds, electrical end points, etc.
As a corner unit, this home has extensive glazing, including windows running down the entire length of the open-plan living/ dining room/ space. As such, it gets great light and ventilation.
The living room opens up from the entrance way and has a very cozy new electric fireplace. There are media connections built into the surrounding wall recesses, perfect for an entertainment system. Opposite this wall is a great bay window assembly, with a really nice spot to sit and read, relax, etc. A custom cushion would transform this into a built-in daybed surrounded by glass on three sides.
The living room extends into a dining area and a very efficiently designed kitchen. Access to one of the two balconies is just off this area. The balcony is fully covered and would be a convenient spot for a barbeque.
The newly renovated kitchen is open with a great peninsula and eating bar. This creates a good balance of openness and separation. Custom millwork is complemented by quartz composite countertops, stainless appliances and recessed lighting.
Down the hall you’ll find both the primary and second bedrooms. The primary bedroom is large with lots of storage behind custom sliding glass closet doors. The second bedroom is south facing and opens up via large sliders onto one of two outdoor balconies.
The bathroom has been remodelled with a very nice floating vanity with tons of storage. This room is both efficiently designed and generous in size. Look for custom tiles, modern fixtures, etc.
The building itself has a unique history insofar as it was designed by the developer as a hybrid project to include not only marketable units but homes for his extended family as well. As such, great care and attention was taken in design and construction. Look for custom wrought iron fencing with locking gates, stamped concrete walkways with a full ramp from the second gate, fully secured underground parking, in-ground automatic sprinkler systems, and full accessibility with an elevator and dedicated graded access from the street and underground parkade.
The strata is described as responsive and proactive. There are two on-site caretakers in the building and pride of ownership is immediately apparent the moment you approach the property.
Extensive work totalling $300,000 has recently been completed on the north-facing, and some east-facing exterior walls of the building, with improved rain-screening and drainage. In these areas, windows and patio doors were upgraded and replaced, as were exterior patios, siding and flashings, and the waterproof membrane on the roof patio of the penthouse unit.
The East Village/ Hastings Sunrise neighbourhood is quiet and family friendly. This is a vibrant community with some of the most creative and best new restaurants, craft breweries, art galleries, etc., in the city. It has established itself as a family-friendly creative hub.
There are fabulous options for dining out with Japanese, Italian, French, Mexican, Palestinian, two pubs, several craft breweries, and even a gourmet hot dog joint - all within walking distance. There are several cafes, with or without a patio, to sit and read, visit or work.
Hastings shops are a short walk away. As is New Brighton Park and Pool, Hastings Park, Hastings Elementary with French Immersion, the local high school, etc., etc. Downtown is minutes by car, or catch transit or ride your bike. The recently renovated Pandora Park is one block away. It has an off-leash dog park, tennis courts, a splash park, etc.
Highway 1 is also just a few minutes away. This is an extremely convenient location. Check out the Walkscore tab above for more details.
One parking spot and one large, private storage room is included. Rentals are allowed and pets are also allowed with restrictions.
This is an excellent opportunity to get into a two bedroom renovated home in Vancouver, in the very desirable Hastings Sunrise neighbourhood. This home’s outstanding functional layout, brand new renovation, great light, and excellent location make it one to put on your list.
