The big sell: The buyers of this two-bedroom condo in UBC’s Chancellor Hall were familiar with the building; they already owned an apartment in it but wanted to upgrade to a larger home. This ground-level unit has many attractions, including an expansive outdoor space which consists of two patios — one accessed from the living room, and another that leads off the master bedroom. The kitchen has high-end stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, and an island with a built-in sink and breakfast bar. There is a gas fireplace, in-suite laundry and a den that can used as an office or additional storage. The master bathroom has a double vanity. The building was constructed in 2007 and one of its distinctive features is a soothing outdoor water area. It is on the edge of the main campus with a quieter location, but within walking distance to the university’s amenities.
