Welcome to Curbed Vancouver's weekly feature, the Under $500K Club. Home ownership in this city isn't cheap but we're on a mission to find cool, interesting listings that don't seem so unattainable for the average person's budget. Got a listing you think is worthy? Send it to the tipline.
Located in the Koret Lofts building, this open concept loft has just hit the market at a very reasonable $488,900. The building itself is a former hardware distributor built in 1908. In 2006, the building was converted into lofts and has the highly sought after live/work zoning, which is quite rare for Vancouver. 14 foot ceilings make the suite appear much larger than the actual size of 789 square feet. The bathroom takes "open concept" to a completely new level with its walk through shower and soaker tub. Just think how awesome it would be to watch TV while in a glorious bubble bath. Open concept is unique to some, but with some strategic interior decorating, the separation of rooms can be easily achieved. Bonus points: residents can take advantage of the spacious courtyard which comes complete with ample seating, two barbecues and even a fire pit.
