The big sell: This property could be a golfer’s dream, due to its location next to the 15th fairway at Morgan Creek Golf Course. The 4,500-square-foot home was constructed in 2004 and built for entertaining. It features three finished levels that include a large kitchen and eating area that lead to a two-storey great room and dining room. Picture windows frame the west-facing views across the rear garden and towards the golf course. The master bedroom and walk-in closet are on the main floor, alongside a den that is the size of many single bedrooms. Two additional bedrooms are on the upper floor, which also has a library. The basement has a recreation room, pool table, media room with theatre screen and exercise room, as well as two additional bedrooms and a full bathroom. And a surefire example of the quality of this property? It’s a former BC Children’s Hospital lottery home.
