LISTING AGENT Owen Bigland, Macdonald Realty
The Action: "This was really a lifestyle purchase," listing agent Owen Bigland says. The buyers were impressed by the standard of the renovations, the size of the property and the proximity to the golf course. And the unit showed well. "The home was decorated and furnished like it was out of the pages of a design magazine," he says.
What They Got: This 2,200-square-foot townhouse has three bedrooms and three bathrooms and is located in Richmond's Terra Nova neighbourhood. The building is 16 years old, and the unit is one of 13 located near the entrance to the Quilchena Golf and Country Club. The previous owners extensively updated the home with hardwood floors, coffered ceilings, new kitchen appliances, custom-built fireplace and a media room.
The Agent's Take: "We are setting a new high price record for the complex and the neighbourhood," Mr. Bigland says. "However, it was justified with the extensive renovations and the location. They're simply not building any more luxury townhomes of this size and quality at the entrance to a private golf club. These are the type of strata units that always appreciate the most."
