The big sell: This home would represent property heaven to kids as it has a basement with a media room and – prepare to bodycheck yourself — a huge indoor hockey rink! Parents, too, would find appeal in the 1.04-acre estate, which is on a cul-de-sac in the Grandview neighbourhood of South Surrey/White Rock. It was constructed in 1995 as the builder’s own home and incorporates 6,600 square feet spread over three fully finished levels. There are many entertaining options on the main floor, with separate living, dining and family rooms and a large open-plan kitchen, which has a 12-by-14-foot eating area. Three bedrooms are upstairs, but the master bedroom and ensuite are on the main level, together with an office/den. There is forced-air and radiant heating throughout and air conditioning for those warmer days. The exterior continues the family-friendly theme, with a private rear garden, a triple garage, and an in-ground swimming pool and hot tub.
