While it’s fun to drool over million dollar listings of the finest houses that Vancouver has to offer, it can leave some with an all too real sense of emptiness in their bank accounts.
So here’s something a little more financially realistic.
This adorable—read small—apartment in the heart of Gastown is a perfect little place to live it up big in the city.
Sitting on the safer side of $1 million at a cool $599,900, it’s hardly affordable housing. But for a place that is less than a block away from The Blarney Stone, the Irish Heather, Portside Pub, MeeT in Gastown, and TACO-frickin’-FINO— that’s a win in this infamously pricey city.
Address: 311-1 E Cordova Street, Vancouver
Listing Price: $559,900
Listing agent: Jeremy Kalenuik and Randy Ayers
Elevator Pitch: The corner apartment boasts two walls of windows, which allows natural light in, accompanied by a much sought-after summer breeze (cross ventilation up in here), and how many apartments in Vancouver can claim to have both an upstair and a downstairs?
Highlight: Flip the bed back into its cabinet and you’ve got some extra room for yoga, dancing, working out, or whatever else you might like to do in your spare space and spare time.
Potential turn off: True, it’s a little tight for two, and you might not have much room for hosting more than a handful of guests, but with cheap drinks and spacious dance floors just down the street, you won’t be hurting much. Just don’t think about starting a family here.
