Property of the Week: $299,700 Condo in Anderson Estates

It has the original, re-enamelled, claw foot tub.



 

Where it is

309, 804 18 Avenue S.W.

The history

Construction began on the Anderson Estates apartment building in 1911 to meet Calgary's growing population boom. It was built to house the city's fashionable managerial and entrepreneurial class. At the time it was the largest and tallest multi-tenant building in the city.

What to love

The condos in the Anderson Estates have lovely existing heritage features, including a brass bird cage elevator in the lobby and original claw foot tubs in the suites. The units also serve as a beautiful blank slate for owners who want to make the space unique like Calgarian Kim Wiebe did with her Anderson Estates condo. (We featured the transformation in our February issue.) Wiebe worked with designer Rob Kurkut to re-imagine her corner unit space into a feminine retreat. 

What to consider

At 500 square feet, 309 is ideal for one person or a couple used to sharing a compact space.
