The big sell: One aspect that you cannot change about a property is its location. This home in Richmond’s Woodwards neighbourhood has many points in its favour: It has a prime position on a quiet family-friendly cul-de-sac, and within proximity to schools, recreation, the Blundell shopping centre and major transit arteries. Listing agent Patti Martin says the home has been well maintained since it was built in 1978, but could benefit from some updating. However, big-ticket items such as the roof and windows have been replaced. There are vaulted ceilings in the living room, a kitchen and family room with an open-plan layout, and sliding glass doors that lead to an east-facing rear garden.
