Private Patio Paradise.

This urban two bedroom home is situated in the heart of Downtown Vancouver's, Yaletown, neighbourhood. What truly sets this home apart is the combined 300sf of covered and uncovered outdoor patio space, the well-executed interior floor plan, and the geothermal heating and cooling system.

This is a quiet South, East, and North facing corner unit that receives great light throughout the year. It overlooks a beautifully landscaped rooftop patio, courtyard, and the treetops of traffic calmed Richards Street. Don't let the square footage fool you, a family of four have enjoyed this home for the past 12 years. It has 2 good sized bedrooms and a generous home office or den space that's flooded with natural light. This isn't your typical Yaletown closet "den", this is a very useable space with large french doors opening up onto the 300sf rooftop patio. Round that out with an efficient geothermal heating and cooling (A/C) system, this home is comfortable year round.

Upon entering the unit you’ll notice the abundance of natural light spilling in, as well as the efficient open concept layout. To your immediate left, you’ll find some entry storage and your in-suite stacking washer and dryer. To your immediate right, you'll find the very well appointed bathroom with a fully tiled and glass enclosed rain shower, Dorian countertops, and dual flush toilet.

Through the entry you’ll find the well-organized kitchen with a huge hidden pantry and storage space. There is plenty of counter space and storage for the home chefs, and space for up to three barstools for those who simply benefit from the home chef. All appliances are integrated and panelled, including a Miele four-burner gas cooktop, Miele integrated wall oven, Miele 24' integrated refrigerator, Miele low profile pull out hood fan, and Miele integrated dishwasher. There’s also a square bottom sink and Riobel hidden pull down spray faucet. Countertops are a granite stone. The hidden pantry space is perfect area for all your dry goods storage and a tucked away area for all your peripheral appliances (espresso machine, air fryer, soda stream, etc)

Just next to the kitchen separating the living space you’ll find ample space for a dining table. A ceiling-mounted lamp has been installed to help delineate the space. You can easily have a permanent dining table here that doesn’t overtake or consume the space, and not just one you slide out when people come over.

Past the dining space, you enter the main living room. Large picture windows flank the entire southern wall of this room, and there is no shortage of natural light here. Views looking out over Yaletown and you private rooftop patio. There’s also a large swing glass door as the main entrance to the covered balcony area. The living room is large enough for a variety of furniture options and configurations. The entire main living space has consistent hardwood flooring.

To the left of the main living space is where you’ll find both primary and secondary bedrooms. The primary bedroom has large north east facing corner windows that look out to the patio and courtyard green space and create a serene and calming atmosphere. Bedroom layout allows for a queen bed while still providing space for some thoughtful furniture storage pieces. Custom built in millwork borders the sleeping area providing plenty of both hidden and open storage, as well as, soft overhead reading lights. The secondary bedroom has a large window overlooking the courtyard and patio and is protected with some deciduous trees.

And now on to the main attraction: rarely does a condo offer so much patio! 300sf of combined covered and uncovered space! Accessible from the main living area through glass french doors, the east-facing corner orientation offers many options for lounging, dining and entertaining, as well as space for those with a green thumb. This beautiful space receives light throughout the day but is shaded from the blasting mid-afternoon sun. A natural gas hookup (gas is included in the maintenance fees) offers you the chance to never refill a bbq propane tank again, or maybe a cosy fire pit is more your style. A planter box runs the length of the patio and adds some greenery and softens the space in what can otherwise be a jungle of concrete and glass buildings. The covered balcony space offers some year round protection from the elements.
