The house was finished in the spring of 2018, but the builder listed it during a slump in the market. It was first listed at $2.498-million and relisted five times before selling in February of this year. The seller received two offers.
The buyers were a couple that lived in a Yaletown condo but worked in the Coquitlam area. Their adult sons plan on living in the suite. “They work in that area, so they wanted to cut their commute down,” the buyer’s agent Ian Watt said. “And it was time for a lifestyle change. They’d been looking for awhile.” The deal was completed on May 29.
What they got
This newly built house has more than 5,800 square feet of living space with a gourmet kitchen, wine bar, wok kitchen, walk-in pantry and covered deck with speakers.
It has four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a two-bedroom legal suite downstairs. It sits on a 66-foot-by-115-foot lot in the Harbour Chines neighbourhood.
The agent’s take
“[The house] needed to be appreciated by a certain buyer. So I think it took a bit longer because it’s very unique, and the timing wasn’t right. There were a few reasons it took awhile to sell,” listing agent Janice Bruni said.
