The big sell: Listing agent Malik Dillon describes this property in White Rock’s Ocean Park neighbourhood as a “rare opportunity”, and from the level of interest in the home, many potential purchasers agreed. The sellers built the home in 2002, painstakingly copying the architectural style of Arts and Crafts homes. Even the front door has been replicated from The Gamble House – a property in Pasadena, Calif. that has been designated a national historic landmark as an outstanding example of American Arts and Crafts-style architecture. The three-storey South Surrey home has authentic post and beam construction, and features overhead heating, a chef’s kitchen with centre island, white cabinetry, pendant lighting and built-in appliances. As well, the views from the banks of windows throughout the home feast upon the sweeping views from the San Juan Islands to Boundary Bay.
