This is a one bedroom, one bathroom plus den home right in the heart of the fabulous Commercial Drive neighbourhood. Setting this home apart is its efficient layout, a convenient and community focused urban location, and a fantastic private patio/ yard.
Inside, you’ll find a nicely updated space, with a contemporary bright colour story. Flooring is hard surfaced in all areas including custom tiles in the bathroom. All you have to do is move in.
Light and atmosphere is good, with a north facing orientation that ensures the space stays reasonably cool in the summers. Heat is included in the strata fees, and a green and treed outlook also contributes to a feeling of calm and quiet.
The layout is excellent, with one bedroom and one bathroom and one really awesome private outdoor patio/ yard over one floor of living space.
Upon entering, you’ll immediately access the kitchen from the hall. This is built in a galley configuration, a solid layout allowing for maximum usability within a reasonable allocation of space.
Also by the entrance is a large den, which is great for storage or for a home office.
At the end of the hall, you’ll find the bedroom which is very large by contemporary standards. It also has a very large closet to complement those in the hallway.
Just next to the bedroom is the bathroom, with a deep soaker tub/ shower combination.
The dining room area shares an open space with the living room and is well defined by its corner orientation. This is a space large enough to host a large dinner party. With a round table, you could easily seat 8 people and not feel too crammed in.
The living room is nicely separated from the kitchen and other principle rooms and is also quite big. There are great sliders that open onto the private patio/ yard, effectively drawing the interior space outside, making the living room feel large.
The outdoor space is quite special. This is a private patio/ yard that has covered seating for a large table, BBQ, etc., and open patio space as well. Rain or shine, this space is useable throughout the year.
The outdoor space creates easy direct access to the street from the home. This is ideal for dog owners. A lock can be installed on the sliding glass doors if desired, allowing owners to come and go as they would in a townhouse.
The sheer convenience of the neighbourhood with its full range of amenities and easily accessible transit make this a perfect spot if you are wanting to minimize the use of a car.
Walk to Commercial Drive for just about every imaginable need. All the fantastic restaurants, cafes, shops and services are within minutes on foot.
Biking is a breeze from this location with quick access to the bike route network. If you do need to get somewhere by car, it’s an easy 10 minute commute downtown. Access to Highway 1 is super quick and the North Shore is 20 minutes away.
The building is well maintained and it shows the moment you approach the property. The street shows very nicely and is directly across from Grandview Elementary. Many houses in the area have creative garden plots and the houses are colourful, which gives it all a really fun character.
The strata is reported to be responsive and proactive. The building has a healthy contingency fund and in 2017/18 the roof was fully replaced.
The building is reported to be very community oriented. From the current owner: “Neighbours look out for neighbours, checking in on some of the more elderly residents and ensuring their well-being. Lots of neighbours help out with dog walking or cat sitting if needed. Neighbours look out for one another.”
This home comes with one underground parking space. There is bike parking and an EV charging station in the parkade. Storage is allowed in owner’s parking spaces. Pets and rentals area allowed.
With its outstanding layout and spaciousness, the fantastic location, and an excellent outdoor space, this home has a lot to offer. See us at our open house, or contact us for a private showing.
