The Action: The seller was a single parent who wanted to downsize, according to listing agent Bruce Lasuta. "We had a number of showings with many second and even a third showing before we finally received two competing offers, selling to a lovely young family who appreciated the setting and family friendly amenities the neighbourhood offers."
What They Got: This 2,399-square-foot post-and-beam home sits on a park-like lot in Halfmoon Bay, a 12-minute drive from Sechelt, on the Sunshine Coast. Built in 2007, the house features an open floor plan with exposed beams, three bedrooms and an office, and glass doors leading onto a back deck with a hot tub, outdoor heating and a fishpond with a waterfall feature. The house includes alderwood flooring, energy efficient windows, skylights, vaulted ceilings, built-in vacuum, air conditioning and a three-car garage.
The Agent's Take: Location, the private treed lot and the open floor plan played a big role in finally selling the house. "It's a short walk to a public beach access trail, two-minute drive to the local convenience store, elementary school and the Sargeant Bay Provincial Park that offers massive beach frontage," Mr. Lasuta says.
