it’s sooo much bigger on the inside…
Crossing the threshold into this 2 bedroom condo, I’m really bowled-over at just how spacious, open, and inviting this home is. I knew walking in that there was over 880 square feet of finished living space, but why do I feel like I just walked into a big old house?. Everything is so much larger in proportion to pretty much every other condo I have seen lately that it really did seem so much bigger on the inside.
First off, the 2 bedrooms are both oversized so bring whatever size furniture you like. Most impressively though, is the sleek modern designs that tastefully adorn the cabinetry, lighting, flooring and every fixture in the place. This didn’t happen by accident; The owners took a small, modest kitchen and blew it out to give the place an abundance of cabinets for anyone cooking one-course meals to five course feasts. The trendy and tasteful, new cabinets escape from their traditional sequestered space and spill out into the dining area with a pass through countertop. Sit and chat on bar stools while the cook prepares their specialty or quickly clear away all dishes into the dishwasher after eating at the dining table.
This open and airy design is what you’d expect to find in larger houses but I can tell you, works absolutely seamlessly in this trendy and clever 2 bedroom condo layout. Adding to the spaciousness, are the nice big and bright windows/patio doors. They open up onto the quiet well-manicured back-grounds of the building away from any road noise on what is already a nice quiet street. The southwest facing windows let in a lot of light into the main living area as well as both bedrooms. The Newly Renovated bathroom is also roomy and finished beautifully with very trendy and sleek fixtures and finishings. Plus, i wouldn’t call a condo spacious if it didn’t have a very deep and cavernous soaker tub to soak in at the end of the day!!
OPEN HOUSE March 2, 1 pm - 3 pm
Easy to view. Call 250-940-4765 for an appointment.
quadra street village is funky as all get out
One of Victoria’s coolest neighbourhoods and getting cooler by the day! Since I’ve moved to Victoria, I have seen this neighborhood attracting more and more of my attention. My personal favorites in the area that have popped up over the last few years include the incomparable Caffe Fantastico, (which is under a block away), Part and Parcel casual eatery whose food is always on point with their eclectic and ever-changing menu, and Cascadia liquor which is such a cool, trendy liquor store. There are, of course, also some stalwarts of the neighborhood and I often find myself at 5th street after a long work-day or especially if I’m heading to the Roxy/BlueBridge theater. There are so many gems right in a 5 block radius in Quadra Street Village that you, literally, never have to leave. Oh, but if you do want to leave, you’re 5 minutes to the heart of downtown.
Contemporary living without the new-built price tag
This home is just not going to stick around very long. It’s too easy a decision to make if you’ve seen what else is out there in this price range. This large 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom suite has been recently updated and been beautifully maintained. The building itself has also been updated and very well-maintained with a strata that gets 2 thumbs up for how well they are spending and stewarding this building’s money. This home does come with secure underground parking and an additional storage locker. Not shown in the photos above are the In-suite laundry in the bathroom. There are no restrictions on age so kids are welcome. They allow pets, both dogs and cats!! You are ok to use a BBQ on your balcony and there are some rentals allowed. By some rentals, they don’t mean 1 or 2 units but half the building can be rented at any one time.
My husband insists that I point out that the title of this post is a Dr Who reference but I’m just focusing on why this unit feels so spacious. It’s really worth coming down to the open house and checking it out. I know this place checks so many boxes for a lot of you out there on your home search: you get to live in a great neighbourhood, close to everything, it’s a trendy and modern renovated home that is clean and inviting for whatever shape your family takes and for whomever you’ll have over to entertain. It’s easy to view and you really will feel a little disoriented when you walk from the building hallway into the home and see just how big, bright and spacious this home is.
