If you’re looking for a home with multiple suites to bring in some monthly income while you pay down the mortgage – this is a great option. Built in 2006 as a legal triplex, this one has a 3 bedroom suite 2.5 bathroom, a 2 bedroom suite 1.5 bathroom and a 1 bedroom suite. Choose to live in one of the units and rent out the others, or rent them all out. The 1 bedroom suite is on the ground level and would be great for a student or young professional. The 2 and 3 bedroom suites are each a good size, and with modern amenities like hardwood floors, granite counters, a great backyard and a parking space in the garage, it has what renters are looking for in a home. Considering that the home was built in 2006, it still has 2 years left on the remaining home warranty.

There is a possibility to stratify these units, which means you can create separate and legal homes that you can sell off individually, while the entire building becomes a three unit strata corporation (currently, only one person can own the building and has to rent out the other units). There are a few options to stratify the unit, including turning it into a proper half duplex (with a front and bath 3 bedroom unit) or turning it into 3 units as they are now. This triplex was built by GH Street Ltd, a Vancouver developer.

As you can see from the floor plan;

  • the 3 bedroom suite faces the backyard, and has living space on each of the three levels of the home, including 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and laundry upstairs, the living space and a powder room downstairs and a bedroom, living area and bathroom downstairs
  • the 2 bedroom suite takes up the main and upper level with the 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom upstairs, the living space and powder room on the main level and the laundry (shared with the one bedroom suite) on the lower level
  • the 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom suite takes up the rest of the lower level, and can become part of the two bedroom suite if the owner desires.
