This bright 2 bedroom, 2 bath corner unit is very well priced and over compensates a new owner to apply fresh paint and new flooring to maximize their investment and transform the suite into something special. This is a great location within walking distance to all that Downtown has to offer and more immediately to the shops and restaurants along Cook St. If you are a sports and music fan you will love the proximity to Royal Athletic Park and Save on Foods Arena.

The suite has an excellent floor plan with the two bedrooms at the opposite ends of unit to ensure privacy for both residents. The master bedroom has a walk thru closet that leads to a four piece ensuite bathroom. Near the entry is a second bedroom and just across the hallway is the three piece main bathroom. Next to the main bathroom is a utility room with a stacker washer/dryer and room for storage. There is also additional storage for each unit located in a locked area on the first floor. The functional kitchen is easy to work in with plenty of cabinets and counter space and access to the open plan living room (with balcony)and dining area surrounded by bay windows. Gas is included in the strata fee which allows people to heat their unit with the gas fireplace in the winter time however gas is turned off from May 1st to Sept 30th. Strata allows propane BBQs on the balcony and you will find there is plenty of room for both cooking and sitting out on all those nice sunny days.

This friendly, well designed complex has only 12 units in total, 4 units per floor each occupying a corner of the building. While there is a security gate preventing easy access into underground parking area the parking spots that are not directly under the building have no sealed roof with landscaping above. They are open to the sky above and this eliminates any chance of the leaky roof syndrome so common with many of the older underground parkades and the expensive remediation costs that result.

As required for all condominiums, there is a recent depreciation report available to review. As expected for a building of this age the report recommends repair and/or replacement of many of the buildings components over the next forty years. If repair is not possible for some of the bigger items then replacement may trigger special assessments in the years to come. Given this is an estate sale (already probated) the present owner (not living there) would like to see this unit sold as soon as possible and as such it has been priced very competitively to reflect not only the interior work required but a partial compensation for additional costs that may come up over the next few years. This is a terrific opportunity for a savvy buyer to add their personal touch to this bright NE facing unit at an affordable price.
