La Villa on 3477 Commercial St.
|Living Area||817 sq.ft.|
The WeLoveEastVan team recently sold this 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom unit on Commercial St at Victoria. La Villa is a 27 unit residential strata (with 10 commercial units) that was built in 1998. The building was rainscreened a few years ago and has recently been re-painted with other work done to many other aspects of the building. A new roof and updates to the courtyard membrane are planned for the next few years and have been paid for by the current owners. When this work is complete, the building shouldn’t need major work for awhile.
This unit in particular is a bright with a West facing exposure and balcony. The view looks out over a residential section of East Vancouver, and with no changes to zoning, the view will be protected for years. Look to the North and you see the Mountains. Inside, the unit has been completely renovated with new floors, a new kitchen and bathroom and added design details. This unit is a reverse floor plan, with the master bedroom, kitchen and living space upstairs (to take advantage of the view) and the second bedroom and storage downstairs. Off the second bedroom is a private patio surrounded by the lush garden in the courtyard.
The location of La Villa will see quite a few changes in the next few years with a few other townhouse complexes having been recently built, and a new Cressey development coming up across the street. This is bound to bring in more activity in the neighbourhood along with some shops and restaurants. The Broadway Skytrain and everything on Commercial Drive is only a few blocks away.
