The big sell: This East Vancouver home sold for bang on the money after five days on the market. Vancouver Specials are riding the wave of popularity again and this one, built in 1987 on a corner lot, is no exception. The floor plan in most Specials is formulaic in that the home is divided into two floors with the majority of bedrooms, bathrooms and principal rooms on the upper floor. This home comprises three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the upper level, alongside a large living and dining room, and a kitchen with an eating area. The ground level offers a two- bedroom legal suite with a light-filled living room and fireplace. The property contains two decks, a two-car garage, and carefully-landscaped gardens. Contributing to the speed of this sale is the location, close to the SkyTrain station, schools and bus routes. and mountain views.
