SOLD in 14 days, for a hair under asking! With an envelope restoration project still under way at time of sale, marketing strategy and up-front fully detailed disclosure was key to buyer momentum.

NORTH OF 4th… the vibe gets NO better than this in Kitsilano! Especially in summer, and even more so on a traffic-calmed bike-route section of York Avenue, just one block in from Kits Beach and steps away from the cafés and restaurants of Kits Beach Village (lower Yew Street). That is where you find this very fresh-feeling large, open one bedroom condo in ‘The Beach House’, one of Kitsilano’s best established buildings.

At 681sf with a large, simple layout, small den (currently used as a nursery!), and big south-facing windows, the feeling is easy, open, bright, and airy… and with a wide south facing, sun-drenched balcony perched above lush greenery and landscaping, the ‘holiday, everyday’ spirit is inescapable. Wide-plank white oak engineered flooring throughout, bright white cabinetry and backsplash in the kitchen, and shiny new higher-end stainless steel appliances complete a bright, clean minimalist style to this home. The bedroom is large, with ample room for a king or queen bed plus dresser, and the bathroom is in great condition. The small den can be extra storage or used as small office (or nursery!), there is ensuite laundry, and with an actual entrance hall, guests won’t be stepping right into the entertaining areas or kitchen.

The building is very well run with a pro-active and diligent strata, and is completing a full upgrade of the building envelope, all paid for by the seller. With new roof, siding, windows, balconies, and doors, plus elevator and common areas also upgraded in recent years, it’s the perfect time to join this awesome community… all owners here, bring your dog or cat! Summertime beckons….!!
