BUYER'S AGENT Nicolas Blachette, Sutton Group West Coast
LISTING AGENT Kristina Brown, Re/Max Realty
The Action: The buyer plans to use the property as both a home and a rental.
"This home sold fast, as it was the best home downtown under a price point of $3-million," said Nicolas Blachette, the purchaser's agent, who showed his client 10 other downtown properties.
What They Got: The two-bedroom sub-penthouse at the high-end Private Residences at Hotel Georgia downtown features ocean and panoramic mountain views through floor-to-ceiling windows.
- It also includes uncommon features such as motorized blinds and blackout curtains, a sound system, two home-theatre systems, lighting operated off iPad or remotes and a smarthome tech package.
- The building has 24-hour concierge, an indoor pool, and à la carte valet, maid, room and spa service.
- The 1,469-square-foot unit was sold fully furnished.
The Agent's Take: The 44th-floor unit is in the residential tower next to the Hotel Georgia, one of the tallest towers in the city. The building has 48 storeys.
"It's viewed as a good long-term investment, as downtown Vancouver is growing very fast with lots of rezoning and new private and public development applications for high-end, unique architectural towers," Mr. Blachette said.
