We are always happy to list another home at the fabulous Newport off Main Street. This is one of those special developments where a community has developed that could easily be the ideal model of how life should be in a strata complex.

This is simply one of the loveliest places in the neighbourhood. A lot of people talk about the importance of community, the Newport is where people actually make it happen.

This is a very lovely two bedroom with an enormous living area and nice covered deck with big views to the west. Setting this home apart is its great layout, awesome exposure and light, and excellence of location. This is a great unit in one of the best complexes in Mount Pleasant/ Main Street.

Inside, you’ll find an awesome layout with an extremely large living/ dining area. The master bedroom opens off this area with the always clever walk-in closet that leads into the bathroom, giving it ensuite functionality. A second bathroom is also accessible via the hallway. The kitchen is located just off the entrance with a smart, efficient layout partially open to the main living area. Overall, the smart layout creates a feeling that the space is larger than its square footage suggests.

There is a great deck accessible from the main living area, as well as a very large laundry storage room accessible from the hallway.

There have been several improvements over the years, with newer appliances, flooring, paintwork, etc. Overall, this home is in excellent condition and shows very nicely.

This home has very good light. Facing west, high above the street and surrounding neighbourhood, the sky makes up a great deal of the outlook.

This is a very quiet home, but just steps from the best of Main Street with all the restaurants, cafes, and parks it is known for. There are three parks with playgrounds within a five minute walk. 

The Main Street #3 bus via the skytrain has you downtown in about 25 minutes. The 99 B-Line is about a 10 minute walk. You can walk to the Canada line in 20 minutes and VGH is about a pleasant 30 minute walk. Of course it’s also an easy bike ride to downtown and the Newport has a huge bike room with recent security upgrades.

Newport is a family-friendly rain-screened building with a gym, large courtyard and (a legendary) full-time caretaker. The community is described as very warm, a place where the kids all meet and play in the very large central park-like yard in the centre of the complex.

There is an annual BBQ, easter egg hunts, hallowe’en parties, and numerous other social gatherings.
The strata is reported to be pro-active and engaged. There is an on-site manager and maintenance is kept up to date. A depreciation report is available and in the last 5 years the complex has seen a new roof and fully upgraded elevators. The building is also rain-screened.

This home comes with one secure parking space, in-suite storage, and in-suite laundry. The building has a very large bicycle storage room. Pets and rentals are allowed.

This is it! The Newport is great. This particular home at the Newport is great. Come see us at our open houses, or contact us for a private showing.
