The big sell: One of North Vancouver’s more popular neighbourhoods is Edgemont Village, with its myriad boutique shops, cafes, and community events that include a summer concert series. Properties in the area are often sought out by families due to their proximity to the village’s amenities and schools and easy accessibility to downtown Vancouver. This spacious four-level house is on a 60-by-128-foot lot with plenty of privacy due to the banks of trees that surround the property. The home features a high-efficiency tankless water heater, original hardwood floors, new cork flooring in the custom-finished kitchen, brick-surround fireplace, newer double-pane windows, fresh paint and master ensuite bathroom with soaker tub. A bonus is the ground-floor one-bedroom suite. The rear garden is south-facing and has a vegetable garden and mature landscaping.
