The big sell: This property was bought in 2009 for $625,000, rebuilt the following year, and recently commanded a sale price of $1.125 million. The home’s location overlooking the Burrard Inlet was pivotal when the property was redesigned, allowing for a bank of picture windows and vaulted ceilings to showcase the sweeping vistas. From the custom eight-foot solid entry door that opens to the foyer, and the hand-scraped walnut hardwood floors, there is attention to detail throughout the home. The chef’s kitchen has cabinet-faced appliances, a walk-in pantry, pendant lighting and an entertainment-sized island, while the family room features a large gas fireplace and glass doors that open to a 39-by-9-foot deck from which to soak up the view. The master bedroom is on the main floor and has access to the deck, as well as a walk-in closet and a spa-like ensuite. The recreation room on the lower floor leads to a patio, and there is a double garage and ample parking.
