> Dynamic/transitional neighborhood with new development all around
> Energy efficient upgrades include triple-paned windows, heavy storm doors, new insulation in ceilings

The building has a low sloped roof with a torch-down covering that has had a recent aluminum coating. The building is nicely positioned on a gently sloping corner lot that is approximately 10,000 square feet. The building is comprised of five one-bedroom units in total with two on the upper floor, two on the middle floor and one in the basement/ground level.

The upper-level units feature tall, cathedral ceilings that give the units an open, airy feel. The upper units also have wood-burning fireplaces that are piped out through the roof. Units feature mostly original or similar finishes and fixtures with some upgraded flooring and carpet and newer appliances in some units. All units have private balconies or patios that face towards the backyard area.

The building received significant energy and sound efficiency upgrades such as triple-paned Milgard windows, storm doors, and improved ceiling insulation. Building mechanical systems include individual hot-water tanks in the basement, seven electric meters, breaker panels in each unit, and water supply lines that are mostly galvanized with some copper in areas.

The building has a very large unfinished basement and storage room that is currently being used by the owner as storage. The combined area of these two rooms is approximately 790 square feet +/-. There is potential that a new owner could add this space to the adjacent unit to create a two-bedroom unit, or maybe a studio unit could be added within this space creating a sixth unit. Buyer to verify.
