The big sell: Tsawwassen is well known for its sunny climes — receiving considerably more sunshine than Vancouver. This four-bedroom rancher in the city’s Forest by the Bay subdivision was listed for 10 days before it sold over the asking price. It offers single-level living spread over 2,285 square feet. A focal point is the large, sun-drenched atrium that can be accessed from the kitchen and the family room, and also the master bedroom through sliding glass doors. This provides a year-round venue for relaxation. If the interior gets too hot, electric shutters can control the amount of sun exposure. There is a low-maintenance private yard, a double garage with a workshop area and a ladder that leads to attic storage. There have been some upgrades to the property since it was built in 1980, including laminate flooring in 2010 and a four-year-old roof.
