The big sell: Listing agent Krista Petersen says her clients received multiple offers for this rancher in Langley’s Brookswood district, with the winning bid presented subject-free after just two days. What attracted this attention? A well-maintained home with updates to the roof, gutters, exterior paintwork, furnace and septic field system. The 12,000-square-foot lot also held appeal, as did the family-friendly neighbourhood, which is close to schools, shopping and transit.
The location is also on a no-through street. The house was built in 1974 and has good-sized rooms with a treed view of the backyard from the kitchen, sliding glass doors off the eating area that open to a large covered deck, a brick-surround gas fireplace in the living room, and a 24-by-28-foot detached garage with a workshop, 220-volt wiring and space for two cars. There is additional parking available, as well as room for an RV.
