The big sell: Spacious is an adjective that aptly describes most aspects of this 1962 property on a cul-de-sac in North Burnaby’s Government Road neighbourhood. At a little under 3,500 square feet, the home is “family-sized”, with a 17-by-15-foot living room, 25-by-15-foot recreation room and 22-by-11-foot master bedroom. The lot size is 102 by 134 feet, providing ample room for not only six vehicles, but also a 960-square-foot workshop. The mechanical buff in the family will be happy with the latter, as it comes with 220-amp power and steel overhead beams and could offer a venue for RV or boat storage. The fenced rear yard has numerous fruit trees and an outdoor brick pizza oven. The interior features two kitchens and a lower level that would be ideal for family entertaining or rental revenue. Another size-related bonus? The potential to build a 6,200-square-foot property.
