The big sell: This MacKenzie Heights property strikes the perfect balance between providing a sanctuary in which to raise a family and a venue in which to entertain friends, says listing agent Spice Lucks. Perhaps prospective buyers thought so, too, as 10 offers were received and the sale was pushed to $377,500 above the asking price. The three-storey home has been completely renovated in a contemporary style and now comprises a bright, open-plan layout that includes a kitchen and family room combination. This leads out to a west-facing back garden that enjoys more privacy than most, as there is no back lane. An office and three bedrooms — including the master with its cosy wood-burning fireplace – are on the upper level, and a rooftop deck provides captivating far-reaching views to downtown and the North Shore mountains. The one-bedroom basement suite is self-contained with its own separate entrance.
