The big sell: This condo in Fairview’s Royal Garden tower not only sold for more than the list price, but substantially more than the B.C. assessed value. The reason? Listing agent Jeffrey Sefton credits the two patios, the bright westerly exposure, a peaceful green outlook, and a convenient South Granville location as the key selling points. This garden suite benefits from banks of windows, which allow natural light to flood the home, and outdoor relaxation/entertaining space with one patio off the breakfast room/den and the other accessible via sliding glass doors from the living room and second bedroom. The interior features dark cherry hardwood floors, a new washer and dryer, stainless-steel appliances, and principal rooms with relaxing views of the hedged garden area. Rentals and pets are allowed and there is a nearby dog park. Additionally, there are tennis courts, shopping, restaurants, cafes and grocery stores, all within walking distance.
