Some of the things we love most about Vancouver’s iconic Gastown are its historic charm, the cobblestone streets, restaurants, and of course, those always-stunning mountain views.
Wait; there’s one more thing. With exposed brick architecture and twinkling lights that illuminate the streets at night, the Gastown district of Vancouver feels like you stepped right into NYC’s Greenwich Village. Whether you’re there for a casual lunch or an unforgettable night out, there’s a reason so many locals and tourists are drawn to Gastown.
Which is why it’s so exciting that a new real estate property has popped up in the area, and it looks like something right out of the streets of New York City. The property is located in The Paris Block — a heritage building in the heart of the neighbourhood with an address of 404 53 West Hastings Street.
Currently listed by VANCITYLiving at $559,000, the beautiful 735 sq. ft. home is located on the fourth floor of the building. It was built in 2008 and includes a junior loft style bedroom, one bathroom, and absolutely sublime interior design.
Throughout the home, authentic elements have been preserved including exposed brick walls, polished concrete floors, wooden beams, gorgeous heritage-style floor-to-ceiling windows, and over-height nine ft. ceilings.
If you’re passionate about entertaining, you’ll feel right at home in the open-concept space with a generous-sized living area, and contemporary kitchen and dining space. There’s also in-suite laundry (always a bonus).
Anyone who has ever lived in a dark basement suite knows how exactly important it is to have natural light in your home. The Paris Block loft has been designed to allow light to flood in through oversized windows. And when you look out your window in the morning, you’ll see the quaint courtyard below.
The Paris Block also offers storage for residents, as well as a bike room so you don’t have to worry about leaving your bike inside your home.
As a resident of this historic building, you’ll be right in the heart of one of Vancouver’s trendiest areas, just steps from amazing shopping, cafes, and so much more.
