The Action: This detached house was toured by about 30 groups of realtors and buyers, including one who acted quickly to negotiate an offer.

What They Got: This classic

mid-century, post-and-beam-style residence looks like a bungalow on a 67-by-125-foot lot, but actually has 1,800 square feet of living space spread across three levels.

A carport provides shelter for a vehicle and the entrance into the main floor, where there is an open living and dining area with new walnut laminate floors, vaulted ceilings up to 15 feet high, floor-to-ceiling fireplace and sliding doors to a deck overlooking the front A set of stairs leads to the upper and lower levels across the rear.

The Agent's Take: "It had southern backyard exposure, post-and-beam-character and it was small, but it was just the right size for a family," says agent Judith Adamick, who notes the last family resided there for 37 years.

"It was close to English Bluff, which is a pretty nice area of Tsawwassen, and it's a relatively quiet street."

The land also held great value in an area where some older homes are replaced with newer ones.

"It's a very good size lot with over 8,000 square feet," adds Ms. Adamick.
