Looks: 2-Bedroom, 1-Bathroom, 863 sq.ft. townhouse. Charm: This one-level townhome is found in Yaletown’s QuayWest Resort 1 building that was built in 2002 and makes up a family of developments that were constructed by Concord Pacific along Marinaside Crescent. The home is bathed in light courtesy of large windows that take advantage of east and west aspects, and airy 13foot ceilings in the living room, and 16-foot ceilings in the master bedroom. Appealing to the gourmet chef are granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances and a gas stove in the kitchen. The property faces a serene and secure landscaped garden and pond, and there is a large

patio area which provides a barbecue and outdoor entertainment venue. The building’s amenities include the much-lauded Club Aqua that contains a 65-foot lap pool, steam rooms, a sauna, and a comprehensivelyequipped fitness facility. In addition, there are concierge services, a projection TV room, a car wash area, and even kayak storage so that residents can take advantage of QuayWest’s waterfront location.
