There is so much to love about this place that it’s hard to put into words. Built in 1983, but there have been over $300,000 worth of renovations put into the unit. The architect was very meticulous with his design, making sure that this Strathcona Duplex is one of a kind. Designed to make use of the abundance of natural light to make it cool in the summer, and warm during the winter. Caesarstone countertops throughout the house, with Tom Roussau and Tolomeo lighting to make the place shine. With a rain shower on the second floor and a steam shower on the first, it’s resort style living in the comfort of your own home. Take a look at some of the photos with our classic Macnab flair, and then we’ll hit you with more info.
One of the major aspects of this Strathcona Duplex that makes it so desirable is the ability to live sustainably. Vancouver has made it a goal to be the one of the greenist cities in the world with the Greenest City Action Plan. This unit helps contribute to the plan with the rooftop solar panels. In the sunnier months, money is collected by the owners who sell unused electricity back to BC Hydro. This is taking income properties to the next level. Newly engineered siding makes up the outside of the home, with 13 years left on the warranty. The home is insulated by recycled bottles. The final aspect of sustainability is the energy efficient washer and dryer, included with sale.
Strathcona Zoning Changes & What To Do in the Area
Prior Street has been in the news recently with the talk surrounding the Georgia and Dunsmuir viaducts. The City of Vancouver has confirmed that the viaducts are to be removed, and traffic on Prior Street will be thoroughly reduced from a thoroughfare to regular residential traffic. The False Creek Flats and Strathcona neighbourhood will be changing in the future with the removal of the viaducts, and focus will change from commuters to residents. This is the perfect opportunity to get into the Strathcona Duplex. Creekside Park will be extended to make the area more walkable, while a greater sense of community as a whole will be encouraged. Additionally, the new St. Paul’s Hospital will be right in the Strathcona neighbourhood.
