Kitsilano Condos for Sale in Arbutus Walk

Arbutus Walk is a popular neighbourhood within Kitsilano. This area, between Arbutus and Vine St, from West 10th the West 12th is a newer (compared to the rest of 1970’s Kitsilano) residential area with low rise condo buildings and townhouses. The area was built with limited roads between the buildings making a green, quiet community setting. It’s close to schools, Kitsilano Community Centre and the amenities on West Broadway and Arbutus, but is only 6 to 8 blocks from West 4th Ave.

The Carlings is another very popular building in Arbutus Walk thanks to it’s good floor plans and reputation. This condo in particular has been renovated in a  great modern style with clean lines and nice colours. The floor plan offers an extra den (this is where the extra square footage comes into play) though the den doesn’t have a window. There is a great, and good sized balcony facing south off the living area. The floor plan has a lot of space for a one bedroom unit and would be very bright thanks to the south facing exposure.

The building is rainscreened, has been recently re-piped and is very well run. The building allows 4 rentals (out of over 100 units) so it is mostly owner occupied. It offers parking, storage, visitor parking and bike storage.
