LISTING AGENT Holly Wood, Re/Max Metro Realty
The Action: The buyer of the semi-waterfront building was a homeowner from Delta who wanted a condo downtown, says listing agent Holly Wood.
The Venus building is located near the Sea Wall, Stanley Park and Coal Harbour shops. It's a 615-square-foot one bedroom with a den/flex space, a large living area and separate dining room, nine-foot-high ceilings, gas fireplace, oak flooring and granite floor entrance. The building has an 80-foot lap pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, gym, party rooms, theatre room, two guest suites, business centre and 24-hour concierge. The unit comes with one parking space and a car-wash bay.
What They Got: "He got a great deal as this one was in brand-new condition with oak hardwood flooring, new granite, paint, crown mouldings, doors, sink fixtures, gas fireplace cook top. The appliances were still brand new and there is a fully loaded amenity package. It's also a prime Coal Harbour address, just a half-block away from the new Trump Tower where one bedrooms start for just over $600,000, for the same square footage – and that's not including the GST."
The Agent's Take: "This is definitely one of my favourite buildings in Coal Harbour for a one- or two-bedroom investment purchase," says Ms. Wood.
