Lovely and breezy, top floor condo available for rent from September 1, 2021. This is a street facing, corner unit, tucked amongst mature trees with a private, north-facing balcony (bright east and west light at different times of the day). Unit amenities include: in-suite laundry, dishwasher, large stainless steel fridge, stove, microwave, hardwood floors, granite counter-top, small in-suite storage room, 3 closets, linen closet, etc.

Move-in-ready. The suite comes fully furnished, with neutral coloured furniture, including a recliner, L-shaped sofa, dining room table and chairs, queen sized bed (organic cotton, plush euro-top), desk, chairs, bookshelves, patio furniture, tv, and dishes (if needed).

Comes with one energized parking stall. There is an unobstructed west window off kitchen and dining area, giving ample direct sunlight at different points of the day. Located in apartment-style walk-up condo building that is well-managed, with keyless entry (Fob system), in the heart of Old Strathcona.

Excellent location, less than a 5-minute walk to local cafes, pubs, restaurants, shops, public library, the farmer’s market, and public transit stops. Great proximity to the university, hospital, and river-valley trails. There is also a dedicated bike-lane on the street, leading directly to Mill Creek Ravine (to the east) and the University of Alberta (to the west).

There are 2 bedrooms, one small (the den) and one good sized, with ceiling fan. (I use the den as a small bedroom and the larger room as an office. This can, of course, be reversed. The living space is very versatile.

This is a quiet and peaceful unit, at the same time as it is located within the most vibrant area of the city. It is ideal for a solo academic-type or couple, or for two room-mates (as long as one is okay with a small bedroom). This is a non-smoking building. You are permitted to smoke on the balcony but not inside the unit. Small, quiet pets are welcome (negotiable, and subject to a pet application process).

The condo comes fully furnished (or partially furnished, if you prefer) and is move-in-ready. Heat and water are included, but you pay your own electricity (about $50/month). This is a fabulous location for the U of A and a great base if you are relocating to Edmonton and want to get a feel for one of its most vibrant neighbourhoods. The condo is available for rent from Sept 1, 2021 for a minimum 8 month lease. Let us know if you would like any further information.
