LISTING AGENT Patricia Houlihan, Macdonald Realty

The Action: The sale set a record as the highest selling price in Deep Cove for a non-waterfront home. The 2003 Battersby Howat-designed property was featured on the cover of House & Home in May, 2005, and features floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking a Zen-inspired garden.

"People loved it but it was not large enough for most," says agent Patricia Houlihan. "We had a lot of interest in it and ended up with multiple offers on it, despite it having been on the market for almost two months."

What They Got: The house's second owners got a 2,355 square feet, two-storey, clean, modern, contemporary house with tons of hidden storage, three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, six-car parking and a heated garage, air conditioning, an electric sunshade covering a huge sun roof.

The house is on a 5,45-square-foot. lot that could have a peakaboo ocean view with some trimming of the bamboo trees.

The Agent's Take: "The house is a one of a kind," Ms. Houlihan said. "In Deep Cove, most people looking at it had families and they loved the location near the ocean and schools, but most of them needed more bedrooms.

"The best selling feature would probably be that it was designed by Battersby Howat and was featured on the cover of House & Home."
