The Condo: This unique penthouse loft is bound to impress with its quality finishings, architectural intrigue and breathtaking views. The stylish interior is highlighted with polished concrete floors, 16-foot ceilings and corner floor-to-ceiling windows. The kitchen is equipped for a chef with quartz counters, Wolf gas range, Fisher Paykel fridge, integrated dishwasher, bar seating and plenty of custom built-ins to maximize your cooking experience. The large moveable butcher block doubles as a dining table and pot storage. The spacious living area is centred around the stone mantle with inset gas fireplace, and an open office area offers versatility to the main floor space. Upstairs, the huge master bedroom is complete with a walk-in closet, ensuite bathroom and sitting area. The guest bathroom has a sleek walk-in shower with teak slat floor, electric toilet and heated floors. Two large patios total more than 350 Sq Ft, offering plenty of space to enjoy the outdoors. The lower south patio is your spot to bask in the sun with custom fit furniture and built-in planters (perfect for exercising your green thumb). The west-facing upper patio, on the other hand, is your personal oasis to take in those beautiful Vancouver sunsets from your private hot tub. Additional features in the condo include a four-zone speaker system, irrigation system, in-suite storage and spotlighting for wall art.
The Building: The Edge is a concrete live/work building constructed in 1999. It’s best known for its cool loft spaces and outstanding views. The building also has killer amenities, including a wood and metal workshop, music room and gym. The community feel of the building is one of a kind with its friendly neighbours. There are two parking stalls available.
The Neighbourhood: Railtown is a rapidly evolving neighbourhood full of creativity, local startups, funky furniture shops, breweries and great restaurants. The community vibe is strong with the people who live and work in the area. With Ask for Luigi across the street and the Railtown Cafe down the block, you won’t go hungry. Gastown’s amazing selection of dining and drinking options are also just two blocks away.
Potential Downsides: While the neighbourhood continues its progression from emerging to emerged, there is still a certain ‘edginess’ in the area right outside your door.
