LISTING AND CO-OP AGENT Gregg Baker, Sotheby’s International Realty Canada
The Action: Late in the summer, several units were up for sale in the upscale Harbour Green community by the waterfront, including this two-bedroom-plus-family-room suite. But it had outdoor space unlike any other, so after more than a dozen showings over one month, a buyer negotiated an offer.
What They Got: On the lower level of a high-rise built in 2006, this end unit affords the luxury of 1,640-square-foot plan with floor-to-ceiling windows and walkouts from every room to a 2,481-square-foot terrace with potted greenery, covered areas, a fire feature and exposures to the north, south and west.
Renowned designer Bob Ledingham fashioned the interiors with contemporary style immediately evident in the fireside living room, adjacent dining area and family room.
To carry out daily activities with ease, there are two full bathrooms and a Snaidero kitchen from Italy, which is standard in the tower, but rarely seen elsewhere, with stone counters, a walk-in pantry and Miele and Sub-Zero appliances, plus a private two-car garage with storage.
Monthly fees of $988 cover concierge and recreation facilities, such as a gym, skylit pool and hot tub.
The Agent’s Take: “There are 47 homes in total, so it’s very exclusive,” says agent Gregg Baker. “It’s such a quality building and such a coveted address. All the Harbour Green [high-rises] are really renowned in Vancouver.”
While this unit is smaller than others in the complex, the outdoor space was about a third larger, “which makes it unique to many buildings and to this building,” adds Mr. Baker.
