This is a very special city home at Cornerstone, a unique converted heritage church in the heart of Mt. Pleasant/ Main Street. This is one of the most well known and coveted heritage buildings in the neighbourhood.
This is a very desirable suite within the building, a north facing 4th floor one bedroom, one bathroom, plus den/ flex large enough for a queen bed. This flex space is quite big and would make a very functional second bedroom.
The outlook is very pleasant with peek-a-boo views to downtown and the north shore mountains. The building is oriented on a pretty significant rise, as such the vantage point is very high.
There have been a number of updates over the years, including baseboards and door casings/ trim, new paint throughout, new hardwood flooring in the den, new tile in the entry and hallways, some millwork and recessed lighting. The updates contrast nicely with the original brick feature wall with vintage church windows.
In-floor radiant heat and a gas fireplace provide a cozy warmth through the winter and liberate the interior from unsightly and awkward baseboard heaters. Gas is included in the strata fees.
The location is top-notch, just steps to the heart of the Mt. Pleasant/ Main Street corridor. Walk to all the shops, services and amenities of the Main Street and Broadway commercial areas.
Downtown is a quick bike ride, walk, or transit ride away (Canada Line Skytrain is a 10 minute walk), as is the Olympic Village, the seawall, and the Cambie corridor. There are also many parks close by including the ever-popular Jon Rogers park on 8th Avenue. For the cyclists and pedestrians, 10th Avenue is a traffic controlled bike route, which is wonderful for traveling on foot or bike.
The building is well run with a pro-active strata council. The roof and boiler were replaced in 2008 and the interior common areas were more recently updated. The building is reported to have a close-knit community feel.
This home comes with one secure parking stall and one storage locker. There are also common bike rooms with lots of spaces available. In-suite laundry is also included with full-sized machines.
Overall, this is an extremely unique, nicely updated and maintained, and extremely well situated home in Mt. Pleasant. If you’re looking for a large one bedroom, or a workable two bedroom in a unique space, this home is certainly something to consider.
