Strathcona Gem

Sorry, this property is no longer active.

We are very sorry but you have arrived at a property listing that is not currently active for bookings. Please return to the main page to continue your search for your ideal property.

Welcome to our Strathcona Gem, located in Vancouver's oldest and most charming neighbourhood. This home is only minutes to downtown, GM Place, and BC Place. Imagine, the convenience of a downtown condo, but in a quiet and conveniently located Vancouver neighbourhood. The Strathcona Gem was originally built in 1904 and has been updated in a contemporary open-plan style, with every modern amenity.

Walk through the garden gate to the front door and you enter the living room, furnished with clean-line furniture and original art, and featuring well-known Vancouver artist, Martha Sturdys, steel patina fireplace surround. Comfortably situated in the living area, there is a wide-screen HDTV for watching any Olympic highlights you may have missed.

The living room flows directly into the dining room and open-plan kitchen. The fully equipped kitchen has stainless steel, modern appliances and plenty of counter space. On the back deck, there is a gas barbecue, which is used year-round. Upstairs are two comfortable bedrooms and a large bathroom with skylights throughout, providing lots of natural light.

One of the best neighbourhoods in Vancouver, our Strathcona Gem is three doors down from the Union Street Market where you will find excellent coffee, pastries, and almost anything you may have forgotten at the grocery store. This conveniently located market is where the locals shop, and is not to be missed.

The Strathcona Gem is close to Chinatown so within walking distance of some of the best Chinese food in North America. A few short blocks in the opposite direction is Commercial Drive, where some of the best restaurants and bars in the city are located. Yaletown is minutes away by car for even more fine dining. The latest addition to the neighbourhood, Au Petite Chavignol, is only four blocks away and features fine local and imported cheese, wines by the glass, house-made terrines, fondue and raclette. A visit here is a must!

For those of you with young children, there are plenty of parks and play areas too, and our home is on Vancouver's bike route, so traffic is limited on our quiet street.

For the energetic, GM Place home of the gold medal hockey game is about a 20 minute walk. Public transit will be a popular mode of travel in and around our Olympic city, and bus stops are only steps from our front door. For those who need to travel to Olympic venues further a field, access to Highway 1 is close-by, for quick and convenient access.

Please note that there is a separate caretaker or renter residence on the property.

Our stay in Vancouver for the Olympics was nothing short of perfect! Thank you to Lori at EMR for helping us find the location we wanted and the space we needed. We were short on time when I called her and she couldn't have been more helpful and efficient. Thank you so much for pulling it all together for us! We loved our little house within walking distance to the hockey games and all the fun downtown. A great experience!
