The big sell: The Villa Franciscan is a low-rise building constructed in 1976 by Bosa in the centre of New Westminster’s Uptown neighbourhood. This end-unit home embraces European style with a redesigned interior that includes granite countertops, bronze fixtures, an espresso wood vanity, Italian glass and marble tile, a designer colour scheme, chandelier lighting, a corner gas fireplace, and wood flooring that flows through the open-concept living and dining rooms. The home enjoys plenty of light from its double-aspect corner position with multiple sliding doors leading to the large covered balconies that provide additional entertaining areas and barbecue enjoyment. The building has a new roof and boiler, and common-area updates. Culture fans will enjoy the location directly across from the Massey Theatre, and sports enthusiasts can take advantage of the nearby ice rink in Moody Park Arena.
