I have sold a property at 204 605 Cook ST in VICTORIA.
This a tremendous opportunity to buy a 2 bedroom condo with an enviable Walk Score of 90 - "A walker's paradise". The unit is large at 846 feet and has an additional 146 ft enclosed sun room for contemplative afternoon reading. It get lots of morning sun and is on the very quiet east side. You will appreciate the functional layout with wide hallways and over sized living/dining room. It is in very good shape but is priced to allow for upgrading if you're itching for a design project. The new owner gets one parking spot, shared, efficient laundry and a very large storage locker. The strata is very well managed - new roof in 2012, and new bedroom windows. This a fabulous location; close to both Fort street corridor and Cook street Village. Many say the most important feature of a condo is the sense of community and Arbour Glen, with only 13 units, has that in spades.
