46 1101 NICOLA Street, Vancouver West, British Columbia

I just finished uploading this Condo for sale, 46 1101 NICOLA Street, Vancouver West, British Columbia

Welcome to the Queen Charlotte, an elegant circa 1928 heritage building superbly restored under the supervision of Robert Ledingham, a leading Canadian interior designer. This unique Spanish Colonial Revival style masterpiece was featured in Canadian House & Home, the top magazine about design and decorating. It was also the recipient of a Heritage Award from the City of Vancouver. The spacious lobby features the original mahogany door and hardware, period carpets, rare craftsmanship throughout, and perhaps the last brass-gated vintage bird-cage elevator to be found in Vancouver. The wide 4th floor hallway leads to this North east corner suite overlooking majestic catalpa trees lining up Nicola Street. The spacious 2-bedroom unit has been meticulously upgraded by the current owner to incorporate necessary modern amenities while retaining most of original features such as the inlaid oak hardwood floors, 9-ft ceilings, thick mahogany doors, crown moldings, double hung wood framed windows & other period pieces.
