The big sell: One of the reasons this three-bedroom townhome in Port Moody’s Eagle Point complex sold in seven days can be attributed to simple math: With a sale price of $389,000, the cost per square foot for the three-level property works out to $222.41 — about half the cost of a similar-sized townhouse in Vancouver. Other attractions are its comprehensive renovations: there’s a gourmet kitchen with dark wood cabinets accented by a glass tile backsplash; a designer colour scheme throughout; new flooring that’s a mix of laminate, tile and carpet; three new bathrooms; and custom-made blinds. As well, there is a private detached garage, and green space to the front and rear of the home. The building has recently benefited from updated windows and a new roof, deck and paintwork, and the communal amenities include an outdoor swimming pool and playgrounds. The property is close to shops, restaurants, Eagle Ridge Hospital, Port Moody’s Civic Centre, the Inlet Theatre and Galleria, and schools and transportation.
