In-suite washer & dryer, white subway tile bathtub/shower with granite counter & slate floors in the bathroom.
Enjoy the massive roof top terrace just outside your front door with your own private patio furniture (seats 8 people) for outdoor dining, suntan in our reclining lounge chairs or make friends with our lovely neighbours at the communal picnic tables at the other end of the roof deck, get your grill on with 2 gas BBQs but most of all… fall in love with our stunning view of snow-capped mountains & the metropolis of the city just minutes away, watch the crimson sunset or sunrise on our beautiful city.

Why the Owner Chose Strathcona, Vancouver, BC, Canada:
My husband has owned in this amazing building for a dozen years now & he didn't want to leave. I wanted my own place close by and voila the chance came for me to buy my own. Situated so central to every cool part of the city, you are within a few minutes walk of everything you could possibly need. The space has impressive high ceilings and the most spectacular views of the mountains & city.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
When people visit for the first time they walk out of the elevator onto the roof and say, 'Wow! I didn't know places like this exist in Vancouver.' This property has the best roof deck patio with panoramic views of the mountains & downtown Vancouver. Imagine watching the incredible sunsets over the urban skyline and the sunrise over the mountains... well you can do that everyday from the comfort of your own patio furniture right outside your front door. Originally an artist live/work studio, the suite was recently renovated into a stylish open concept loft with 20 foot ceilings, high reaching windows and a bedroom mezzanine above. The furniture is a chic mix of mid-century & modern. Great for a photo shoot or romantic getaway.
