I have sold a property at 107-525 Wheelhouse Square.
This is a beautifully-renovated and spacious unit in a FULLY RAINSCREENED building on the Seawall in South False Creek. With a quiet southwest outlook onto greenspace and gardens, you are only steps away from the Seawall and all its amenities.
Professionally and completely renovated (with all permits), it will feel like you are living in a new suite without the new-suite price tag! There has been almost $80K worth of renovations over the last 8 months, and it shows. The spacious rooms with 806sf of indoor living space and 146sf patio provide plenty of room for entertaining. The new kitchen features: full-height solid wood German beech cabinets; Quartz composite countertops with an entertainment-sized bar for your guests to enjoy a glass of wine as they admire your culinary expertise. Double sinks with single-lever faucet and soap dispenser; brushed steel handles; subway tile backsplash with glass accent tiles; new tile floor; pendant lighting. High-end stainless steel appliances include: Miele double wall ovens; Miele countertop range with grill; 3-speed hoodfan; GE Profile extra-wide fridge with water and icemaker; dishwasher.
The spacious Bathroom is all new: enjoy a peaceful soak in the deep oval soaker tub (extra insulated to retain heat); large wall tiles with glass tile accents; new slim-line toilet; heated tiled floor for cosy toes; high vanity with square vessel sink, new faucet; new mirror, lighting, towel rods.
Features include a double-sided gas fireplace (gas included in maintenance fee) faced with stone in livingroom and slate in the master bedroom. New solid hardwood oak floors, pot lighting; new blinds; new custom millwork for baseboards, windows and crown mouldings. The Sellers have even added extra drywall/insulation in the livingroom and master bedroom for soundproofing. The open-concept floorplan allows for maximum light and very generous room sizes with very little wasted space in hallways, and even has a pretty garden view from all principal rooms. It also features a BONUS room that makes a great den, office, art studio, solarium or even a guestroom. It overlooks a 146sf patio with trellis and wisteria vines and mature landscaping. Beyond the patio is a large grassy area with gardens and water features, leading to the Seawall just 30 seconds away. One full-height locker, one underground parking spot. Maintenance fee is $250.16.
