The Details: $899,000 / Maintenance fee: $282.93 / 2014 / 1,096 sq. ft. / 2 bed, 2.5 bath / 505-133 E 8th Ave. / MLS: R2024045
The Condo: This two-bedroom home is an urban townhouse in the sky, with an open floor plan split over the building’s top two floors—plus a spacious rooftop deck. Of course, actual townhouses don’t have unobstructed views of downtown and the North Shore mountains. Additional design notes include over-height ceilings, natural hardwood floors, and marble bathroom tiles—heated, of course.
The Neighbourhood: This prime Mount Pleasant location at 8th and Main is walking distance to virtually everything. Some of the best restaurants and cafes in town, craft breweries, shopping, transit, and the downtown core are all a pleasant stroll away.
The (Potential) Deal-breaker: While the efficient floor plan maximizes space, some buyers will find 1,096 sq. ft. over two levels a little tight for a two-bedroom at this price point. And while the rooftop deck is lovely, it’s not overly private and picks up some traffic noise from Main Street.

If you can take your eyes off the view, the deck also offers ample space to entertain and work that green thumb.
The large, modern kitchen serves as the heart of the home.
Clean lines, marble tiles, and heated floors make for a more luxurious bathroom experience.
