The big sell: According to listing agent Louise Boutin, this 1950s bungalow has been raised with all the necessary permits to incorporate a full-height basement. The addition now offers the owners the opportunity to include a mortgage-helping suite or utilize the extra space for a growing family. The interior of the home features original hardwood floors, and some updates have been undertaken most notably to the hot water tank, and the installation of a metal roof which comes with a 50-year warranty. The south-facing rear yard is low maintenance, and there is a single garage as well as a carport. The property’s location means that owners have a choice of SkyTrain stations, there are schools nearby as well as an off-leash dog park, and it’s a short drive to Central Park Pitch & Putt course. The Renfrew Heights neighbourhood is true to its name with many properties, such as this one, enjoying far-reaching downtown, North Shore Mountain and Lions Gate Bridge views.
