LISTING AGENT Marty Pospischil, Dexter Associates Realty
THE ACTION: Shortly after two public open houses for this classic two-storey house in Kitsilano, there were three competing offers, including one adding $210,000 to the $1.85-million list price.
WHAT THEY GOT: Over the last 16 years, a new roof, windows and plumbing, electrical and heating systems were installed in this 84-year-old residence, which offers 2,677-square-feet of finished living space, including the basement.
There are separate living and dining rooms with gas fireplaces and a kitchen with a walkout to a new deck, hot tub and two car parking off the laneway.
The sole bathroom and two bedrooms complete the main floor, while two bedrooms round out the second level.
The 50- by 125-foot property is a less than a five minute walk to schools, recreational facilities at Connaught Park and Kitsilano Community Centre, and not much further to shops on West Broadway.
THE AGENT’S TAKE: “[It has a]very nice yard space loaded with fruit trees and gardens,” states agent Marty Pospischil. “[It was]strictly a land sale, and as expected, off-shore Asian purchasers were the only interested parties bidding on this product.”
