The big sell: The Killarney neighbourhood was one of the last areas to be developed in Vancouver, but that development accelerated after the Second World War to meet the demand for housing. Among the area’s trademarks: numerous parks and green spaces, and homes with larger-than-average lots. This two-level bungalow was built in 1955 on a lot measuring 34 feet by almost 135 feet. The upper level contains oak hardwood strip floors, a gas fireplace, generous room dimensions, and an easy-flow floor plan. The lower level has a separate covered entrance, two bedrooms, an updated kitchen, a living room and laundry. There is back-lane access to a single detached garage, and the level, rear garden is fully fenced. The property is close to the shops at Champlain Mall, schools, and has easy transportation options through direct bus lines to UBC, Metrotown and the SkyTrain.
