The Unit: This one bedroom home in 1623 E 2nd Ave has a lot going for it. The floor plan has large rooms, including an in suite storage room that could be used as an office and a coat closet. The kitchen has a great U-shaped floor plan, and would be fairly easy to renovate with new cabinet doors, new counter top and removal of the hanging upper cabinets to open up the kitchen to the dining room (you wouldn’t need to tear down any walls to do this). The living room features a gas fireplace and access to the balcony, which has enough room for an outdoor seating area where you can enjoy the mountain views. The bedroom is large with 2 closets and cheater access to the bathroom. Rounding out the unit is in suite laundry and windows on two sides of the apartment giving you some great air flow.
The Building: This 23 unit, 4 storey building was fully rainscreened back in 2002 with concrete siding and new balconies. The building offers secure underground parking; unfortunately no storage lockers. The strata is quite pro-active, having done a Depreciation Report back in 2013.
The Location: This condo is sitting in a fantastic location, only half a block to Commercial Drive. Just off the Drive so you’re far enough from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to easily do your grocery shopping (Super Valu), walk home from a great night out or get to the Skytrain before work.
