What a beautiful community and home.  I know 500 sqft seems small, but this little hide-a-way is perfect for a single person.  Tight for a couple, but a wonderfully comfortable place for an individual who likes to entertain and garden.

The unit has a relaxing patio area to enjoy in the summer and a cozy fireplace in the living room to curl up to for the winter.  The bedroom is on the smaller side, but there is a closet for clothes and another for the in-suite laundry (I consider a bonus).  The bathroom is spacious and the kitchen is definitely the hang out area, but is completely open to the living room.

For the limited properties available in Vancouver (West) for under $350,000, I think this unit is a little gem.  The location is fantastic, especially if you wanted to be near downtown, without being in the core.  Shops, restaurants and transit galore, all at your finger tips.  Not to mention the beautiful treelined streets.  As far as I know, the current owner of 5 years has had some changes in their career that has made them decide that renting may be better option for them in the coming months/years.

My suggestion would be to check out the unit for noise.  Being a lower level unit, you never know how sound proof a wood frame building is.  Other than that, I think this property is worth a visit and serious consideration.
