Located right between Vancouver's Burrard Street and Granville bridges is the beautiful Creekside Park, which sits along the park's namesake, False Creek. Granville Island is a stone's throw away. Downtown Vancouver is on the other side of the bridge.

A location simply doesn't get much better than this.

Unit 803 at 1450 Pennyfarthing Drive — a residential building right next to Creekside Park — is currently on the market with an asking price of $1,188,000. And surely, the listing won't be on the market for very long.

Home of the listed suite, the 13-storey building was originally constructed in 1983 and boasts an assortment of shared amenities available to all residents.

Meanwhile, the suite itself comes complete with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,300 sq. ft of living space, plus a stunning solarium that spans nearly the whole width of the unit. The latter provides an entire wall of windows that overlooks Vancouver from the home's elevated perch.


Immediately upon entry you're met by the kitchen, which is equipped with designer pendant lighting, quartz countertops, built-in stainless steel appliances, and a wine fridge. Just past the kitchen waits the dining space, which then leads to the living room and its centrepiece fireplace.

The main attraction of the home, however, is undoubtedly that sun-soaked solarium. It begins at the living room and extends down a long hallway, leading past the bedrooms and ending at the corner office, which serves views that could compete with the best of Vancouver's office towers.

Our Favourite Thing

Beyond the solarium (of course), the shared amenities within the building are particularly notable. There's the classic concierge and gym offerings, but also a sauna, hot tub, and refreshing pool. Completing the broad assortment of amenities are the squash ball courts and workshop — both niche and enticing additions.

Both of the suite's two bedrooms also feature unique glass walls, inviting all the sun that comes in through the solarium to extend into the bedrooms as well. The rooms themselves are ultra inviting, serving as private and peaceful retreats.

The primary bed features a walk-in closet that doubles as a hallway, leading into a beautiful ensuite bath with rounded illuminated floating vanities, dual sinks, and a luxurious tub.

The home has been thoroughly redesigned, and the upgrades are clear: the home looks just as modern (if not moreso) as any other newly-built condo on the market right now. This fresh design, paired with the beautiful solarium and the unbeatable location, adds up to a home that's easy to fall in love with.
