I have sold a property at 306 - 265 East 15th Avenue.
ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! Exquisite attention to detail has transformed this 1-Bedroom + Office into a luxurious space that is perfect for two people AND also great for entertaining. The owner has spent over $40,000 on recent renovations and it shows - it looks stunning enough to be in a magazine. From the totally updated kitchen and bathroom, a view balcony, a home office, and a handsome gas fireplace, the Seller has created an oasis of elegance and privacy with a hip modern vibe. The spacious floorplan allows generous room sizes with no wasted space. You'll love cooking in the totally new kitchen with quartz counters, full-height high-gloss cabinets, deluxe stainless steel appliances (Samsung counter-depth refrigerator with bottom freezer, Whirlpool slide-in stove with ceramic cooktop, Whirlpool dishwasher with stainless steel tub, Samsung microwave), new stainless undermount sink with brushed steel single-lever Riobel faucet with spray nozzle, glass backsplash tiles, recessed ceiling lighting, undercounter lighting, brushed steel hardware. The new bathroom has a high vanity with custom organizers to hold all your toiletries, quartz counters, new lighting, new slim-profile toilet, porcelain floortiles, reglazed bathtub with subway tile surround, new rainshower head and faucet. Laundry is a breeze in the new ASKO all-in-one washer dryer unit (installed with Strata council permission). Keep all your computer and office things organized in the new home office with built-in desk and cabinetry, new lighting - even a new frosted glass door for extra privacy. The Master Bedroom is large enough to fit a King-sized bed - rare for one-bedroom apartments! - and has a generous closet with full organizers and a south-facing window with a private outlook to trees and the park. Enjoy a glass of wine in the large livingroom in front of the handsome gas fireplace (great flame!). Incredible 180-degree views from Mount Baker, over the park, west to the Heritage Hall. Indulge that green thumb and plant some flowers on your sunny south-facing balcony, or enjoy a late meal outside that's been grilled on your bbq. The suite boasts new Wenge laminate flooring, baseboard and door mouldings, new doors with brushed steel handles, new paint, new lighting, and even smoothed ceilings - no more popcorn! This is a beautiful, private and secure space that you'll love to call home, and you'll be proud to entertain here.
NEIGHBORHOOD: Located in vibrant SOMA, this building is just 1 block to Main Street and all the hip cafes, shops and restaurants that really enhance your lifestyle. Anchored by Heritage Hall with its distinctive clock tower, this area has a really intimate neighborhood feel. Park your car downstairs - you can be green and walk everywhere! Indulge your inner bliss with yoga classes at the nearby Open Door yoga studio, brush up on your reading at the new Library/Community Centre; keep up with your friends on Facebook while you sip java at Starbucks or JJ Bean, or linger over healthy munchies at Burgoo or The Well. Keep your inner sportsfan happy with wings at The Five Point pub, and enjoy a decadent dessert at Caffe Rustico or Bellagio's Gelato. The Marketplace IGA is only 3 blocks away, and there's a new Shopper's Drug Mart being completed at Main and 17th. Transit is only a block away on Main to whip you into Downtown in 10 minutes. And when you want to enjoy some greenspace, Tea Swamp Park and Community Garden is right across the street.
THE BUILDING: Woodglen is a very popular and extremely well-maintained complex on one of the prettiest corners in southern Mount Pleasant. On a quiet tree-lined street facing the park, it is only steps away from all the action on Main Street. The building has recently been re-piped (2011), had a new EPDM (like a synthetic rubber) roof (2009), and installed new wood-siding in 2008. This suite comes with one secured parking #14, and one locker #9 - although there is a possibility of renting a second stall and locker if you need it. There are bikeracks and the option of renting space in a secured bikeroom for those with expensive toys. Daily caretaker service and a long-time building manager ensure that this building not only looks good but is well-maintained. There is also Shared Laundry in the building (only 75cents each for washing and drying) if you need to wash larger items. Sorry - the building does not allow Pets, and Rentals are limited to 6 - the rentals are currently at maximum. MAINTENANCE FEE $183.56 which includes Hot Water Heat, Hot Water, Management, gardening, caretaker services, Gas.
