The big sell: Listing agent Tom Edwards says this 1962 North Delta home combines old character charm with plenty of modern concepts. The architecture is post and beam, with a split entryway that leads up to bedrooms and the main reception rooms, and down to a lower floor that has additional bedrooms, a laundry room, utility room and 25-by-12-foot recreation room. The home’s original features include hardwood floors and gently vaulted ceilings, but kitchen updates include new cabinets and upgraded appliances, and to the main bathroom, which now has a soaker tub. The roof is about seven years old, and the exterior has a large covered deck that overlooks the garden that — at nearly 10,000 square feet — has abundant space for green thumbs.
