Bonus: the grand staircase will have you making a grand entrance every day of the week.
The details: 301 – 1238 Seymour St. | $998,000 | 1169 sq. ft. | 1 Bed, 1 Bath | Built 1996The condo: With recent renovations and an interior facelift by local firm Oliver Simon Design, this split-level loft is such a looker it was featured in the March issue of House & Home. With soaring 16-foot ceilings and a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows, there’s no shortage of natural light and open space. The grand staircase adjoining the separate upper level bedroom and office space allow for a necessary divide between work and rest, and there’s an enclosed room below the office area that’s ideal for a den or nursery. Plus, your inner thespian will never tire of the theatrical reenactments that this amazing staircase feature practically demands (it’s also hollow, making it the perfect discreet storage area). The kitchen is a chef/host’s dream come true with a 14-foot quartz-topped peninsula (which doubles as additional storage with built-in storage below), stainless steel Kitchenaid appliances, and Aquabrass faucets. There is one parking spot included with the unit.The building: The space is a 223-unit loft tower in the area straddling the Yaletown/Downtown border, featuring amenities such as a fitness centre, shared TV lounge, two fourth floor rooftop patios with BBQs and seating, additional storage lockers for rent, and a bike room. This 22-storey concrete building houses several split level units, making it closer to the height of 33-storey tower and offering city views from every window.The neighbourhood: Vancouver is unique in that its downtown core is both commercial and residential. This means that neighbourhoods like Yaletown are never desolate and no resident is more than a few steps from every desireable shop or service—night or day. World-class restaurants, chic bars, boutique shopping, and even grocery stores are all nearby, as is the beautiful sea wall, resplendent with cyclists and strolling individuals. Furthermore, venturing another few minutes in almost any direction brings you to other bustling areas such as the West End (beaches, parks, and delicious food abound), Gastown (cobblestone streets lined with cool boutiques and bars), and Olympic Village (up and coming eateries, coffee shops, and breweries galore).The drawbacks: Noise and shenanigans caused by weekend warriors at nearby clubs and bars.
