Credo: #202 1533 E 8th Ave
|Living Area||563 sq.ft.|
This one bedroom unit near Commercial Drive is a great find for those with a sub-$350,000 budget. The unit is 563sqft, but it very well laid out and feels much bigger than the listed square footage (there’s a chance the unit would have more sqft if professionally measured).
The galley kitchen gives the Buyer a chance to be creative with the space – a large dining room table would look great, but the unit has enough space to have both a kitchen island for extra workspace and storage and a small dining room table. The unit is sparsely furnished at the moment, but it would look great if the new owner added their own touch. One of my first suggestions would be to extra lighting in the living room – an easy job for an electrician. The master bedroom can easily fit a queen size bed along with a dresser and night stands. The den off the dining area can be an office or storage room.
There is a large square shaped balcony that is big enough for a good set of table and chairs or a nice outdoor couch. The balcony is covered for rainy days and has access from both the living room and master bedroom.
The unit has in suite laundry, a parking stall and bike storage. Storage lockers can be rented from Strata for $35/month. The building is only 6 years old, was designed well and sits across from Shelley Park. You’re only a block to Commercial Drive and the Skytrain Station. The building allows rentals without restriction and pets are allowed. Owners in the building can reserve a garden plot located at the back of the building. The demographics of the building are young professionals.
