Listing and buyer’s agent: Jesse Davies, Century 21 Elevate Real Estate
Over a period of four months, agent Jesse Davies showed his clients about a dozen houses suitable to their growing family. The first one they felt deserved an immediate offer: A three-bedroom home with 2,700 square-feet of living space and an attached double garage.
“There was nothing comparable to it because it was such a large bungalow,” Mr. Davies said.
“It has three bedrooms up, which is really unique, and a fully developed basement with really nice media and games rooms, and a mother-in-law suite with a separate entrance.”
What they got
At the end of a short street near Canyon Meadows golf club, this 43-year-old house was kept in top form with recent upgrades, including a new furnace, new kitchen appliances and new tile and hardwood flooring.
The main floor dining room has a double-height ceiling and is off to the side of the large eat-in kitchen with a rounded granite island.
The 2,680-square-foot basement provides many extras, such as two guest rooms, a kitchenette and two home’s five bathrooms.
There are multiple walkouts to the back patio, deck and hot tub on the 41- by 132-foot lot.
The agent’s take
“It’s on a cul-de-sac and has a south-facing backyard,” Mr. Davies said.
“They have soaring ceiling heights as soon as you walk in, so it’s a very grand entrance with a skylight.”
