LISTING AGENT Patricia Houlihan, Macdonald Realty Ltd.
The Action: On a gently winding street situated between two parks, including Cates Park on the waterfront, this 30-year-old residence was closely examined by over 30 interested parties and received more than one offer.
What They Got: The 3,876-square house is set on a 63- by 161-foot lot that affords it mountain and ocean views.
A fireside living room off the dining area and the eat-in kitchen has walkouts to a 27-by-13-foot deck. The open family room has a second wood burning fireplace.
All four bedrooms overlook the backyard and the largest one also has a wide balcony, walk-in closet and access to one of two bathrooms upstairs. Conveniences include a main floor laundry room, a powder room and direct entry to the double garage, plus two one-bedroom suites on the lower level, each with a bathroom, kitchen and living area with patio access.
The Agent’s Take: “The lot isn’t as big as some of them there – most of them there are 100- by 150-[foot] lots – but this one had an amazing view and it was very private with huge hedges,” says agent Patricia Houlihan. “You could see all the way across to Port Moody’s waterfront and Belcarra.”
