This condo has the feeling of home from the moment you step in. The renovations give it a warm and inviting feel with a professional, clean finish. The master bedroom has a fabulous full wall closet with built-in storage compartments. The kitchen and bathrooms are the stars of the renovations, but the unit’s wrap around 728 sqft exterior patio is a “wow” factor. This ground level home is completely fenced in, making its patio the perfect spot for beautiful summer days on the coast. Includes: in-suite laundry, 2 parking stalls and extra storage.

A beautiful location with access to major routes along Cambie, Oak Street and Broadway. It’s a place that could be enjoyed by the young and young at heart.
