The big sell: Burnaby Heights – more commonly referred to as The Heights – is a quiet enclave of homes with some of the best views in town, thanks to its elevated position overlooking Burrard Inlet. This 2003 home takes full advantage of those vistas, with nine-foot ceilings throughout the main floor. The sellers had invested in upgrading parts of the home, producing a maple kitchen with granite countertops and updated appliances, new crown mouldings, paintwork, recessed lighting, a built-in vacuum system and new security system. The ground floor contains a 19-by-13-foot recreation room, bedroom, bathroom and laundry, but with little work this could be converted into guest or family accommodation. The exterior is fenced and has been landscaped with patios, mature shrubbery and an in-ground sprinkler system. There is an electric gate at the rear of the property and a double garage.
