The big sell: North Vancouver’s Lower Lonsdale community is a hotbed of condo developments at the moment, with demand fuelled in part by proximity to the SeaBus, which provides a scenic 12-minute journey to downtown Vancouver, and myriad shops and restaurants. There are numerous festivals and art fairs that take place throughout the year, and for recreation enthusiasts, the mountains are a short drive or transit ride away. The Sausalito is a 46-unit building that was constructed in 2006 near the intersection of 3rd and Lonsdale. This home has bamboo flooring, stainless-steel appliances, a gas fireplace, in-suite laundry, a balcony that can be accessed from the bedroom and the living room, and a spacious floor plan. The home, which has a den that could be used as a home office, comes with two parking stalls and a locker. The strata accepts rentals and pets, although there are restrictions with both.
