What they got
The 3,717-square-foot ranch-style house sits on a two-acre property in the Willowbrook area, about a 10-minute drive outside of Oliver.
The home is in the heart of Okanagan wine country, not far from the lake, golf, vineyards, schools and the Area 27 racetrack.
The 48-year-old house has five bedrooms, four bathrooms, an updated kitchen, a large deck, an outdoor pool, a hot tub and an irrigated, fenced yard. There’s a basement media room and a large garage with a woodworking shop.
The semi-retired sellers were looking to downsize. Listing agent Richard Deacon wasn’t sure if their home would sell in the summer months, what with the higher mortgage rates. He showed it to a number of parties and received a good offer from buyers in the Vancouver area. The sellers had asked for a longer closing date. It completed Sept. 14.
The agent’s take
“This is a very cute home that has been renovated and has a beautiful flat yard. Somebody could build or add on to it, use it for a large garden or horses,” said Mr. Deacon. “It wasn’t fancy or luxurious, but it almost had a resort feel to it.”
