The Block by Parklane Homes, built in 2009 and located between 2700-2800 Guelph Street, Vancouver may be an ideal location.  Situated just between the centre of Mount Pleasant and Fraser Street, it features several renowned eateries such as the Les Faux Bourgeous, Osteria Savio Volpe, and Sal y Limon Mexican Cuisine.  If you are looking for something lighter on the stomach, 3 blocks north you can find the Cultivate Tea and the Wallflower.

This modern townhome in Mount Pleasant, East Vancouver is quite unique.  The balanced design concept maintains a sense of spaciousness in all rooms. Standing in the kitchen, a clear line of sight connects the kitchen, the living room, the dwelling roof, and the distant Northshore Mountains.  The well-proportioned 1 bedroom plus 1 den opens up to a wider frontage than the typical shoebox floor plan upon entry. With a large kitchen bar and plenty of cabinets, there will be no problem finding extra space.  The kitchen is adjacent to the den space and has a small storage area, making it an ideal location for extra gadgets and equipment. The living room and adjoining bedroom receive an abundance of natural light and are equally generous. In addition, the living room has a flex area that is over 6ft wide for an additional option for the home office. There is also one parking space, another storage locker, and an assigned bike storage space on the property. Central location, 5 minutes to the Trout Lake and 15 minutes drive to popular destinations.  Rentals allowed & pet friendly.

The property has found a suitable new owner as a result of our collaboration with the clients. The most difficult challenge, in retrospect, was competing with another townhouse in the complex, which many Realtors perceived to be a more desirable unit in the complex, with direct access to the underground parking. The closest comparable sale in the complex with the same layout sold for $1,145,000 a year ago, which presented another challenge. So, even for seasoned realtors, the 1.3 million dollar sale price goal was not easy to meet. Thankfully, the clients’ lifestyle displayed in the property had established a fairly good theme from the start, and the team was able to execute property preparation and package the property to be a unique offering promptly.
