LISTING AGENT Doug Williams, Re/Max Crest Westside
The Action: This three-level duplex, designed by Battersby Howat, was built by the seller near Clark Drive, in the city's up-and-coming Mount Pleasant neighbourhood. The home is half of a duplex on a 50-foot lot, and is set far back from the street to allow for privacy and an ample garden.
What they got: The 1,667 sq. ft. duplex has three bathrooms, three bedrooms, an open area kitchen and living room, and a large studio in the basement with radiant heat floors. There are artistic flourishes throughout the house, including a mounted piece of art above the fireplace and a candelabra attached to the upstairs bathroom sliding door. There are large windows and skylights to bring in light on all three levels. The main entrance is at the front, instead of a side entrance, which is typical of many Vancouver duplexes.
The Agent's take: “This neighbourhood, Mount Pleasant, is a very popular area now. A lot of west side potential buyers are moving more to the east side, and Mount Pleasant is one of the places they seem to be going, so it has a lot going for it.”
