The big sell: If the sale of this 1968 rancher had fallen through, listing agent Joanne Taylor had backup offers in place. The reasons why this home generated so much interest? It may be a smaller-than-average home comprising just one level, but it sits on a generous 63-by-137-foot lot and has a quiet location close to the King George corridor and proximity to Alderwood Park and South Surrey/White Rock’s popular amenities. The house has a cosy living room with a Regency gas fireplace, original hardwood flooring throughout, track lighting, a newer high-efficiency furnace and hot water tank, a partly-covered sundeck, and a fully-fenced west-facing back yard that contains numerous well-established trees and is mainly laid to grass. The property also includes a single garage, additional space for RV parking or cars, and for the hobby or woodwork enthusiast, a 363-square-foot detached, wired, workshop.
