The big sell: Agent Judy Gray says properties such as this waterfront condo in Ucluelet’s The Ridge complex are often bought by investors for use as vacation rentals as the building is zoned for nightly rentals. Their popularity is assured due to their proximity to the beach and the fabulous ocean views. This development was built in 2007 and enjoys a prime position on the Ucluelet peninsula. The home is a top- floor unit, which features an expansive sundeck that takes advantage of the stunning Pacific Ocean seascapes. With more than 1,500 square feet of interior space, the home has plenty of room for family, friends and renters. There are slate tiles, which are heated in the entryway, kitchen and bathrooms, sisal carpets, maple cabinets, fir beams, vaulted ceilings, and two fireplaces.
