The big sell: Listing agent Danny Nikas received six offers for this family home in Vancouver’s Quilchena neighbourhood, two of them from builders. One of the selling points of the property is the location; the home is within walking distance to Arbutus Village shops and in the school catchment district of Trafalgar elementary and Prince of Wales secondary. But perhaps the main attraction were the dimensions of the lot, which measures 55-by-120 feet and under current RS-1 zoning regulations, would allow a 4,620-square-foot house to be built. The home has been well maintained in its original condition. It consists of three floors, with three bedrooms on the upper level, and the reception rooms on the main floor. Those have hardwood flooring and a kitchen that opens to a 20-by-19-foot family room. The roof and hot water boiler were replaced a year ago, and the oil tank removed with permit.
