A character condo offers up “irreplaceable features” in a Calgary heritage building, just steps away from the 17th Ave retail and entertainment district.

The 211 ‚Äď 804 18th Avenue SW¬†condo¬†in the city’s Lower Mount Royal neighbourhood, listed by¬†Chris Zaharko at Royal LePage Benchmark, could be yours for $289,900.

“Our records show that this property has been listed for sale eight times in the last year, which presents a great offer to a savvy buyer to strike a deal,” says¬†Lauren Haw, CEO and Broker of Record at Zoocasa.

“This being said, the condo and other similar suites in the building have demanded a premium price as a result of the building’s unique features and urban location.”

The building is situated right off of 17th Ave, allowing easy access to the neighbourhood’s many bars, shops, and restaurants, making it a convenient and desirable property in one of Calgary’s well-established communities.

“With close proximity to the 17th Ave retail and entertainment district, this suite is located in a walkable neighbourhood with amazing amenities,” says Haw. “This neighbourhood has seen a strong start to 2021, growing 4% in property values from the start of the year.”

The one-bedroom, one-bathroom property boasts original maple hardwood floors, 10-foot ceilings, six-foot windows, and artwork ledges throughout, with 604 square feet of living space.

According to the listing, the building is quiet due to concrete construction. A shared courtyard with conversation seating is perfect to enjoy the upcoming summer days.

“This suite is full of irreplaceable, character features. As is common in older buildings; the kitchen, bathroom, and closets are small by modern standards, but for the right buyer, this could be an easy compromise for someone who wants to live in such a historic building,” says Haw.
