Imagine you've been given $1.8 million to spend on a home, and your heart's set on living in the West End; how to choose where to put your hard-earned money? Let Curbed Vancouver pick a couple of contenders to fight it out: that's right, it's time for Real Estate Deathmatch.
↑ Address: #1404 - 1221 Bidwell Street
Beds, Baths: Two bedrooms, three bathrooms
The Skinny: First up, this brand new 1,455 square foot suite located in the Alexandria building, steps from English Bay. The ceilings are over 10 feet high which shows off some impressive views of the harbor and will surely make this apartment the envy of firework watchers during the summer. And let's not leave out the massive covered patio. Miele appliances, marble-tile bathrooms, hardwood flooring and air conditioning are a few of the notable features in this place.
↑ Address: #904 - 1835 Morton Avenue
Beds, Baths: Two bedrooms, two bathrooms
The Skinny: The other contender is this 1,440 square foot renovated corner suite apartment in Ocean Towers which the brokerbabble describes as a "mid-century icon." The rooms have been refinished and offer waterfront views from every window. The open plan suite has a gourmet kitchen and a bonus room used for an office/media room. Nice.
