Family townhome... with its own PARK?

Nestled in a secluded-yet-central luxury townhome complex on the edge of Pacific Spirit Park is this spectacular, almost 2,500sf 4 level, 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 8yr young townhome that enters directly from beautiful, tucked away Michael Smith Memorial Park with its manicured landscaping, water feature, and playground... not a car or road in sight, yet steps from the forest trails of Pacific Spirit and the amenities of Wesbrook Village!

Featuring a 500sf+ recreation room on the top floor with two sundecks, a 400sf lock-off suite downstairs earning $1,450/mo, a 442sf huge double-secured attached garage, high ceilings on the main floor, modern granite counters and high-end finishings throughout, island kitchen with gas range, large private patio with garden plot, and more, this is incredible value relative to a similar sized house anywhere on the west side. Crescent West was built just 8 years ago to UBC’s very progressive environmental ‘REAP’ standard by Fairmont in partnership with GBL Architects.

Important note: here at UBC, ownership is CROWN leasehold, which should NOT be lumped in with other leasehold types in our region that are often considered poor investments. Practically speaking, finance-ability (banks love Crown Leasehold), taxation, AND investment performance at UBC are in direct parallel to local freehold title, with much data to support this statement. I've lived and owned there myself, ask me if at all curious.

And, the home itself is arguably not even the best part... while the higher-end finishes and open, modern floorplan with 3 bedrooms all on the same level make for fantastic indoor living, it’s the LOCATION that provides a truly special and very unique lifestyle. Immediately outside your front door is the afore-mentioned Michael Smith Park... two playground structures, water-feature, and the sun rising over the forest trees just steps to the east every morning. Within 200m are the trails of Pacific Spirit Park, and within 400m you’ll find Save-On Foods, cafe’s, professional services, restaurants, a liquor store, a bank, and more. A brand new community centre and new high school fall within this radius as well, with multiple daycares, two elementary schools, and of course all of UBC’s world-class scholastic and athletic amenities (spectacular new Aquatic Centre, UBC Library, David Chan Centre, Golf Course, T-Bird ice rink, indoor tennis, etc.) within easy walking distance. Transit options are endless, downtown Vancouver is 15 minutes by car, and this place is an absolute cycling AND dog MECCA.

Spanish Banks, David Chan Centre, Wreck Beach, UBC Golf Course, MOA, Community Centres, neighbors from ALL OVER the planet... a multi-cultural, progressive community with ever-deepening roots. A special home in a special place!
