The big sell: One of the benefits of a ground-floor apartment is often access to a good-sized outdoor space. Such is the case with this home in Richmond’s Pelican Pointe building in the Riverdale neighbourhood: it has a 200-square-foot private patio with an inner courtyard location and partial mountain and water views. The unit has benefited from numerous updates, including new hardware, granite countertops, and stainless-steel appliances, upgraded light fixtures and window coverings, and a renovated bathroom. Additionally, the home has nine-foot ceilings, laminate hardwood flooring, crown moulding, a gas fireplace with thermostat, and a walk-in closet. The building has easy access to Dover Park, the Olympic oval, shops and the airport. In-house amenities include a gym, sauna, and billiards room. Pets and rentals are allowed, meaning the home could present investment opportunities.
