The details: 204 – 1729 East Georgia St. | $599,000 | 838 sq. ft. | 2 Bed, 2 Bath | Built 1993The condo: A rare two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo just blocks from Commercial Drive with its own private backyard. Small pets are allowed, so you and your rescue pooch will feel right at home with the ample outdoor space attached to this ground-level suite, or you can stroll one block over to Woodland Park or one of several other green spaces nearby. This spacious and bright space was given a recent facelift with Brazilian cherry hardwood floors, updated kitchen, and front-loading washer/dryer, so even though it was built in the mid ’90s, you’ll never feel like you’re living on the set of Friends. There’s a cozy gas fireplace for curling up in front of when the weather makes patio time impossible. Bonus: two parking spots included in the listing.The building: A 19-unit, four-storey wood framed complex with in-suite laundry and storage included in each, as well as gas fireplaces and patio space. Small pets and rentals are allowed and additional storage space is available.The neighbourhood: This condo is roughly equidistant from trendy Commercial Drive and the up-and-coming Hastings Sunrise neighbourhood, so you’re never more than a few minutes walk from ample fresh produce, numerous coffee shops, restaurants, bars, and more. Hop on your bike and arrive at the recently renovated Parallel 49 brewery in under five minutes (or walk there in under 15), where you can sample their many craft beers and tasty pub food options. Schools and community centres are close by, and transit to downtown is just outside your door.The drawbacks: There is a chicken rendering plant half a dozen blocks away that can occasionally offend your olfactory organ.
