The big sell: The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver’s Home Price Index for February showed that the benchmark price for a single-family detached home in the West Vancouver community of Glenmore was $1,289,600 — a figure that represents a 35-per-cent increase over the last five years. The attraction of this property is apparent because it has a British Properties location within proximity to Collingwood school, and a lot size of more than 14,000 square feet. The three-level split home was built in 1959 and has an open and functional floor plan that creates a flow that makes the interior feel comfortably spacious, according to agent Leslie Miletich. There are evergreen trees surrounding the home, ensuring a year-round verdant outlook. This can also be enjoyed from the deck, which has an elevated position over the carport.
