Friend-of-a-friend Eva is moving up this weekend to come work for the new Microsoft office in Richmond, so I'm doing some scouting for housing for her! This is a nice 1-bedroom ground-floor suite originally designed for the owner's mother-in-law. I really like the quiet neighbourhood, very kid-friendly. There's even a little solarium inside for plants!
I generally know my way around Richmond, but I don't often get a chance to walk around the residential neighbourhoods and take in the atmosphere -- I'm usually rushing, driving around to the Chinese restaurants in the busy north end. So it's nice to visit the quieter parts of town.
