The big sell: Properties that are opposite parks are often popular, primarily because of the lack of immediate neighbours, but also because of the greenbelt views. This South Surrey home is no exception, being across from Sunnyside Acres Park. It has distinct curb appeal with peaked roofs, a mix of wood and stone-effect siding, and a landscaped garden in the front. It was custom-built in 2008 in a heritage style that showcases extensive use of crown moulding and detailed wainscotting. There is a 20-by-16-foot open-plan great room, an entertainment-style kitchen with large island and high-end appliances, a heat pump and pantry, and a media room. A sweeping staircase leads to four spacious bedrooms with vaulted ceilings. The master bedroom has a spa-style ensuite bathroom and large walk-in closet. The private lot measures 8,153 square feet and has an oversized double garage.
