The sellers received three offers on the house, which was listed mid April, sold a week later, and completed on July 8. Listing agent James Garbutt had acted as the buyer’s agent when the sellers purchased the home in 2012, for $877,500.
“The sellers put their heart and soul into this home,” Mr. Garbutt said. “They renovated it immediately with high-end finishes and no expense spared.”
Many young families from Vancouver and the North Shore viewed the property, but the buyers were a young family from Prince George, B.C.
What they got
This 2,550-square-foot house in the upper Delbrook neighbourhood was built in 1965, but had undergone a major update in 2012 that respected its history.
The five-bedroom house has three remodelled bathrooms, hardwood floors, walnut kitchen cabinets, a partial mountain view from the rear deck, wood-burning fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows.
It’s close to schools, trails, Grouse Mountain, and is a 15-minute drive to downtown Vancouver.
The agent’s take
“It’s a gorgeous home with complete privacy, surrounded by nature, beautiful renovations, a stunning kitchen, modern design with vintage light fixtures, furnishings and decor,” Mr. Garbutt said.
“The main-floor living space is a big selling feature of the home … with windows looking out to trees and mountains.”
