Agent Christopher Bibby was not expecting a bidding war over this one-bedroom-plus-den suite in the Distillery District, a pedestrian-only arts, culture and entertainment destination.
But its grand size and modern style promptly cinched a pair of offers and a third at the last minute.
“For the price, there was a lot of interior square footage,” says Mr. Bibby. “And the finishes were great.”
Situated in the podium of the recently completed Pure Spirits high-rise, this 764-square-foot unit has a typical long and narrow layout and Juliet balcony.
“For someone who doesn’t necessarily need or want exterior square footage … then this is great,” says Mr. Bibby.
The den, kitchen, living and dining areas are completely open concept with 10-foot ceilings and full-height windows creating the illusion of an even larger space.
To polish off the interiors, the sellers had the builder install upgraded hardwood floors, stainless steel kitchen appliances and granite-topped counters and island.
There are even sliding barn doors to the master bedroom, which has a semi-en-suite bathroom.
“It gave it a bit more of an edge and made it more appealing to the younger crowd,” says Mr. Bibby.
Convenient extras include laundry machines, a locker and parking.
The monthly fee of $428 covers heating costs and maintenance of amenities such as the gym, outdoor pool and party room, as well as a rooftop deck.
“If you want to live in a new building in the Distillery District, this is the only option right now,” adds Mr. Bibby.
“The other three buildings are roughly 10 years old.”
