LISTING AGENTS Tanya Sidorova and Michael Inwood, Sutton Group Realty Systems Inc.
THE ACTION: The doors of this modern residence were open to about 50 buyers between private showings and public open houses. Two rival offers were made, so the property was sold for $20,100 more than the asking price.
WHAT THEY GOT: In the Alderwood community, many developers are expanding or replacing original bungalows with new, larger properties like this two-storey house on a landscaped corner lot spanning 43- by 126-feet.
Upscale appointments on the main floor include nine-foot-ceilings, hardwood, limestone and marble flooring, crown mouldings in the living and family rooms, and stainless steel appliances and a granite-topped island in the kitchen.
The central dining area features a side door to the yard, polished marble concrete patio and attached garage.
Four bedrooms are located upstairs, including a master suite containing a walk-in closet and one of four bathrooms.
The lower level has its own separate entrance, as well as an office, recreation room and living space.
THE AGENT’S TAKE: “This house was completed at the beginning of summer, so no one ever lived in it. It was a brand new home,” says agent Michael Inwood. “The basement can be used for rental – as it does have a rough in kitchen – so potential buyers liked that option.”
