Living at 1600 Hornby Street is all about lifestyle. Situated on the waterfront on a traffic-calmed cul de sac at the sunny southern foot of Hornby Street, #Yacht Harbour Pointe and its attached marina are what Vancouver living is all about. Walk the seawall, bike to Stanley Park, hop a foot passenger ferry to Granville Island and grab some lunch and then visit the Granville Island Public Market to shop for dinner, and buy some fresh flowers while you are there. Take the ferry back and disembark right in front of your building.
If cooking isn't your thing you're in luck, some of the city's best restaurants are close to home. #Umberto's Il Giardino is just up the street. Dine al fresco in their lovely courtyard perhaps?

Tired of driving to a distant marina where your boat is docked? The marina at Yacht Harbour Pointe is exclusively for owners of residences here. How fabulous would it be to have your boat docked just feet from your home? Opportunities to lease or purchase slips here are on a first come first serve basis.
Walk nine blocks North from 1600 Hornby Street to the heart of downtown Vancouver and The Vancouver Art Gallery, where there is currently an exhibit of Claude Monet paintings from Musée Marmottan Monet. You deserve a little French pastry after that, cross the street to Faubourg for French style afternoon tea.
Exhausted? Grab a cab, a bus, a bike, back to the opulence of your waterfront home and enjoy the lovely breeze from your balcony while watching the boats in False Creek. Linger and you'll see a sunset over the water from your living room.
In the not too distant future when Vancouver House is finished construction you will have more amenities and services just 2 blocks away.
With just 55 residences in Yacht Harbour Pointe buying opportunities are somewhat rare. Come have a look at my listing and see if this is the waterfront residence for you.
