This is a three suite character revenue property in a wonderful neighbourhood in Mount Pleasant. "Flexible" best describes this very tidy, very nicely maintained character house.
1st floor - 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, very private rear patio in the backyard.
2nd floor - 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, covered front porch and deck off the kitchen.
3rd and 4th floor - 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom with enormous covered verandah, views of the mountains, city.
For those looking to own a more affordable house in the city, no less in Mt. Pleasant, this is your new address.
Live in the upper, two bedroom, two bathroom suite on the 3rd and 4th floors, and rent out the other two units (on the 1st and 2nd floors). Or choose to live in the large, one level main floor suite for even greater revenue. These scenarios each create a substantial income supplement making this house much more affordable.
For the investor, this house provides three separate suites over four levels in one of the most desirable areas in the city. The house has been well maintained with many recent updates:
- 2010 - New kitchen and bathroom in the upper suite
- 2010 - Installed hardwood flooring and refinished the original fir flooring in the upper suite
- 2011 - New bathroom in the main floor suite

The house itself is a classic East Vancouver character home, updated and re-written over the decades, and now settled comfortably into the surrounding neighbourhood.
Inside, overheight ceilings on the 2nd and 3rd floor provide a sense of volume and space not commonly experienced.
The upper suite on the 3rd and 4th floors has excellent views of the North Shore mountains, including the Lions. You can also see sections of the city skyline and elements of the working waterfront.
The verandah on the 3rd floor is remarkable in its build and orientation. Facing west, the evening light is very nice indeed. Fully covered, this deck is large enough for a full scale dinner party and/ or an outdoor living room. The space feels excellent and the views again showcase the North Shore mountains and city surrounds. It's a very unique space.
Light and air are plentiful, especially in the upper suite. There are windows in all directions, as well as 3 skylights. Privacy glass in key areas keeps sightlines in to a minimum.
The neighbourhood is, as you likely already know, where just about everybody in Vancouver wants to live these days. Every imaginable amenity is within walking distance along Main Street, Broadway, and Commercial Drive.
Transit options are plentiful and biking is a cinch as Windsor itself is a bike route, and the 10th Avenue route bisects Windsor just a few short blocks away. Check out the Walkscore information in the Maps tab above for more info.
Overall, this is a great option for those looking for a more affordable way to own a home with land in a prime location in Vancouver or for those looking to invest in the city.
