LISTING AGENT Rick Stonehouse and Dwayne Launt, Sutton Group –West Coast Realty

The Action: Mount Pleasant has become a huge draw for young families that would have otherwise settled on the west side. There are many old fixer-uppers being snapped up and renovated.

"The buyers were a young couple starting out with a new family. We were told they had put in a few other offers and been out-bid," listing agent Dwayne Launt said.

Mr. Launt held a preview followed by an open house. About 40 groups attended both. The offer was made with a deposit cheque and without any conditions.

What They Got: This fully renovated 1912 heritage home is in the popular Charles Dickens Elementary School catchment area, which is a big draw for parents.

The house has high ceilings, stained glass, original fir floors, an updated kitchen with Fisher & Paykel appliances and skylights, speakers throughout, and a two-car garage.

Upstairs, the house has three bedrooms and a bathroom with claw tub bath. It was recently updated with a new roof and exterior paint.

The Agent's Take: "This was a very well maintained home on a deeper 127-foot lot," Mr. Launt said. "It has an open stylish layout, lots of innovative storage, on-demand hot water tank and a new furnace. And the owners were a design-savvy wife and a landscaper husband, so the property both inside and out had the 'wow' factor."
