11 1101 NICOLA Street, Vancouver West, British Columbia

I just finished uploading this Condo for sale, 11 1101 NICOLA Street, Vancouver West, British Columbia

The Queen Charlotte has been a Vancouver classic since 1927. Located in the heart of the west end, the Queen Charlotte, solid and concrete, is an outstanding example of Spanish Colonial revival style architecture. Enter the elegant foyer of this five-storey heritage landmark, with its brass-gated birdcage elevator, wide hallways, and wonderfully restored Art Deco detailing, and you feel like you've stepped into a fine old boutique hotel. It's a lovingly maintained building, with a great sense of integrity. The two-bedroom apartment is on the main floor, southeast corner. Beautiful wrap-around windows, it's light & airy with engaging views of gardens, greenery, and in summer, a high green arch of wide-leafed Catalpa trees. With no common walls, it is quite serene, and fully renovated in 2011. Heritage details include high ceilings, oak flooring, updated kitchen & bath, refurbished double-hung windows and in suite laundry. Here's a rare opportunity to reside in a timeless piece of history! OPEN HOUSE SAT 2-4PM
