Vancouver consistently ranks as one of the world’s best cities, renowned for its majestic skyline, convenient access to the great outdoors, and established neighbourhoods. In Gastown, there’s a property currently on the market that combines the city’s most desirable elements.
The two-storey heritage loft, selling for just under $1.6 million, is located in the Bowman Lofts building at 303-528 Beatty Street. Listed by Shawn Brown at the West Haven Group, the property is rare in that it has been completely redesigned and transformed into a luxurious yet practical space.
With a prime location steps from retail, dining establishments, and major transit routes, the loft places its prospective residents in the centre of it all.
The property has two bathrooms, one bedroom, a living room, dining room, sitting area, kitchen, foyer, and more within 1,280 sq ft of space.
It was built in 2010, and in recent months, the design team at PlaidFox Studio was tasked with redesigning the loft and carefully blending heritage elements with contemporary fixtures.
Exposed brick gives the aesthetic a rustic edge that complements the decor. All furniture and accessories have been custom-designed and selected for this space. Yes, they are included with the purchase of the home.
The spacious kitchen features bespoke cabinetry with gold hardware, Silestone countertops, and a seamless single-piece backsplash. Integrated appliances found in the kitchen are by Bosch and Fisher & Paykel.
An island offers additional dining space with bar stools, making it ideal for entertaining guests. Across from the kitchen, a piano rests against the wall to inspire creativity.
In the living and dining area, a 4.5 ft custom-made chandelier makes a statement as the centrepiece of the room. There is also fully-programmable smart-home lighting throughout the loft which can be adjusted to match the ambiance.
A custom, deep blue banquette along the wall complements the upscale interior design and adds extra character to the seating options. Restored and reclaimed hardwood flooring can be found throughout the space, with rugs and cushions adding an element of coziness.
In the bedroom, there are two walls with custom-built storage, plus a walk-in closet. This means fashionistas and adventure sports enthusiasts alike will have ample storage space for seasonal apparel.
The master bathroom features a double vanity and a station for hair and makeup, so there will never be arguments over who can get ready first. High-end lighting fixtures and gold hardware can be found in the bathroom, along with a Mara Mara marble shower with double rain-heads and an additional storage wall for towels and toiletries.
Over in the guest bathroom, the design standard is maintained with a large mirror, substantial-sized vanity, and a full-wall tile that wraps around to the shower.
On the rooftop, residents can enjoy time in the sun while taking in views of the downtown cityscape and mountainous backdrop. In terms of parking, the loft comes with one spot and additional storage.
