“Our records show that this property has been put up for sale eight times in the past year, which makes a great offer for a savvy buyer to close a deal,” said Lauren Haw, CEO and Broker of Record at Zoocasa.

“Located near the 17th Ave retail and entertainment district, this suite is in a walk-in neighborhood with amazing amenities,” says Haw. “This neighborhood got off to a strong start into 2021, with property values up 4% since the start of the year.”
The one bedroom, one bathroom property has original maple floors, 10-foot ceilings, 6-foot windows, and artwork moldings throughout for 604 square feet of living space.
The lovingly manicured unit features a built-in antique stable and bookcase, 12-inch oak skirting boards, and an all-in-one laundry facility.

According to the listing, the building is quiet due to the concrete structure. A common courtyard with seating for conversations is perfect for enjoying the coming summer days.
