The action

The sellers had purchased the property in 2013 for $630,000. They replaced an old house with the new house, built three years ago. The listing agents received three offers after one week on the market and sold at the highest price for a house outside of the tony Queen’s Park neighbourhood in New Westminster, B.C., according to agent James Garbutt. More than 100 people came through the house.

“This was the busiest $2-million home we’ve ever listed,” he said. “All the neighbours came out, plus we had many Vancouver buyers show up.”

The 3,750-square-foot house sits on a 46-by-132-foot lot with four bedrooms and three bathrooms upstairs, and a legal two-bedroom suite downstairs.

What they got

The buyers of the house were a professional couple with kids, from West Vancouver, the listing agent said.

They got a 3,750-square-foot house on a 46-by-132-foot lot with four bedrooms and three bathrooms upstairs, and a legal two-bedroom suite downstairs. The master suite has vaulted ceilings and five-piece ensuite. The two-storey house has an open layout with large recreation room downstairs and landscaped garden.

The agent’s take

“This is one of the best homes in the city,” Mr. Garbutt said.

The West End neighbourhood is highly sought after, he says, and the layout and location on a tree-lined street made it desirable for a family.
