The big sell: This property in North Vancouver’s Lynn Valley neighbourhood received multiple offers before selling in seven days for $45,000 over the asking price. The reasons for such enthusiasm? Much of the heavy lifting, such as a new metal roof and Leaf Guard gutters, updated windows, a new heat pump, and a refurbished kitchen had already been done, and the basement was fully finished with a guest/in-law suite. The house was built in 1971, and incorporates an attractive mock Tudor design with a half-timbered exterior. The lot measures 7,750 square feet with a south-facing rear garden, and there is parking to the side. There is a spacious deck off the kitchen and solarium, which would make a prefect venue for entertaining and dining al fresco. The property is within walking distance to Boundary Community elementary school and is also in the catchment district for Argyle secondary.
