The big sell: This property has been newly built on a subdivided lot in Vancouver’s Main Street neighbourhood opposite Mountain View Cemetery. The three-level home has benefited from careful attention to detail, with features such as hand-carved maple floors, wide window seats, radiant heat, and a Hardiplank and cedar shake exterior. The interior highlights are many, and include a custom-fitted kitchen — with granite island, breakfast bar and range — that flows naturally into the dining and living areas. Recessed lighting is featured throughout the open-plan design. There are three bedrooms upstairs, along with two full bathrooms, a laundry area and a master bedroom that has a large walk-in closet, a six-piece ensuite, and far-reaching mountain views. Other attractions include a one-bedroom suite in the lower level, a sky-lit double garage and a landscaped back yard. The home also has a 2-5-10 warranty. According to the B.C. Assessment website, the assessed value of $859,000 was awarded when the building was unfinished.
