302 167 Bannatyne Ave, Winnipeg, Manitoba

I just finished uploading this Hard Loft Condo for sale, 302 167 Bannatyne Ave, Winnipeg, Manitoba

Unique to the Ashdown, which more often than not, has long and narrow floor plans, is the relatively square floor plan of this unit. Further emphasized by its corner location, it's striking pattern and abundance of windows, which provides a very welcoming feeling of space and light. Only available on the 3rd floor of the building are the Romanesque- arch style windows and with all of the former interior walls removed in the renovation, these windows have become a signature focal point of the unit. Offset by five extra tall vertical windows, both exterior walls converge to take full advantage of the changing flow of direct and indirect light from sunrise to sunset. Additionally, the unit's back corner location has the added benefit of distance from the street life sounds and activities that make the Exchange District a popular place to live and visit, giving it a best of both worlds location within the Ashdown Warehouse building. In 2000, the current owners of this suite used Lynda Levit, from Xyz Design Inc to completely gut and retrofit the suite to its high standards. If you look up, you will see a ceiling that has all the original beams fitted with corrugated metal sheeting. In addition to serving as a textural design element the corrugated metal ceiling serves as a refractor of light around the room. The floors were levelled and replaced with prefinished hardwood flooring. Wiring and much of the plumbing and mechanical were upgraded at this time. All the interior main walls were removed to ensure an uncompromised open concept throughout the main living area. As a result the suite should be considered fully retrofitted from top to bottom. The lighting is of the highest quality and design. A combination of halogens, low voltage wall sconce lighting and designer track systems can be found throughout the suite. The dining area chandelier is made of Flight Paper and illuminates the area with a soft, luxurious glow.
