Days on the market: 71

Listing agent: Rob Vanovermeire, Coldwell Banker Mountain Central

The action: Homes in Canyon Meadows often draw a crowd, but buyers had a leisurely attitude early this year when this 46-year-old bungalow hit the market. It had showings every four to five days when it was listed at $529,000 in January, but once the price was reduced in February to $499,800, interest picked up and daily tours were the norm.

“It’s an older, established community with good schools and easy access to the C-Train – so generally speaking those [kinds of] neighbourhoods have a lower supply and higher demand,” agent Rob Vanovermeire said.

“We generally see offers – even if they’re low offers – so it took that lower price to bring in all the interest. You can never underestimate the importance of being aggressive on the price, especially in a buyer’s market.”

What they got: In 2004, this 1,191-square-foot house was given a makeover with three updated bathrooms and an open kitchen and entertaining area with a granite-topped island, stainless steel appliances and one of two fireplaces.

Three bedrooms are on the main floor and two more are set off a recreation area in the 1,101-square-foot basement.

A private backyard, heated, double garage and RV parking round out the 59-by-115-foot lot.

The agent’s take: “It’s five-bedroom house, which is somewhat unique for a bungalow to have two more bedrooms downstairs,” Mr. Vanovermeire said.

“And what you don’t see often is two fireplaces … usually, there’s just one upstairs.”

Though many bungalows are renovated, this one has a more spacious feel. “This one was completely open, so the wall separating the kitchen and living room was taken out,” Mr. Vanovermeire said.

“And the backyard was exceptionally large, even for the older neighbourhood.”

Welcome to the beautiful, meticulously maintained, 5 bdrm converted into 3bdrms, 3 bath updated bungalow in Canyon Meadows. This home has had so many extras added and completed, its move in ready. From the front door you are greeted with a nice entrance, large coat closet and a big skylight overhead for added brightness. The ceilings are vaulted and have all been refinished and painted with built in speakers, and theres 4 large windows in the living room to let in the sunshine. The dining room was designed for a full dining set so you can fit your hutch in there as well as a large table with extensions. The kitchen has been updated, and theres a sliding glass door that goes out to the large deck. On the main there is a good-sized 2nd bdrm and an oversized 23 ft primary bdrm because a wall was taken out and 2 bedrooms were joined into one. If you desired an extra bdrm to make it back into a 3 bdrm up again, it would not be difficult. The primary bdrm has a renovated 3-piece bathroom and a wall of closet. There's also a 2nd full bath on the main. Beautiful, refinished hardwood flooring throughout, new doors, new door casings and baseboards, new light fixtures, paint, and carpet. From the main floor, there is a door that can be locked. Once opened there's an entrance to the left and stairs down to the right so if an owner wished to suite the basement, this door setup is ready for that. (A secondary suite would be subject to approval and permitting by the city/municipality..) Down you'll find a fully finished basement with new paint and luxury vinyl plank flooring and a wood burning fireplace in the family room area. An extra long brdm which again was once 2 bdrms with only the wall taken out and could easily be put back in if desired. There's a full bathroom, extra storage, large laundry room, cold storage area. Outside the extra wide 65 ft lot features a beautiful huge deck, large grassy lawn, 2 fruit trees, 2 sheds, and an RV area with separate gate and paved lane. There is plenty of room for the whole family. All this on a quiet lovely street, close to shopping and schools. This is truly a great home. (id:31729)
