SELLING AGENT Keith Roy & Associates, Macdonald Realty

What They Got

The 2,411-square-foot, three-bedroom house sits on a 33- by 122-foot lot in the Vancouver Heights, or Burnaby North neighbourhood. The bright and sunny house is a craftsman style but was built in 1951. Updates include an architect redesign with a new upper floor and main floor extension. There is hardwood flooring throughout, an updated kitchen with granite counters, a formal dining room, media room, den and deck with views of the Burrard Inlet.

The Action

"The sellers did a complete renovation on this home only three years ago," says selling agent Keith Roy. "The seller moved because they were just a few blocks outside of the catchment area where they wanted to send their child to high school."

The Agent's Take

The view and the location made it an easy sale, but three bedrooms on one floor is always a draw for families, says Mr. Roy. "The Heights is an incredible neighbourhood for families, with lots of great specialty shops, restaurants, stores and easy access to Highway 1 and downtown."
