LISTING REALTOR Keith Roy, Re/Max Select

What they got: This five-bedroom Tuscan-style house was built in 1941 but has undergone two major renovations to the interior. The two-level, 3,000 sq. ft. home sits on a 50-by-122-foot lot in The Heights neighbourhood with remarkable views of Burrard Inlet. Features include oak parquet floors, gourmet kitchen with Sub-Zero fridge, huge deck, landscaped yard and double detached garage.

The action: The sellers were empty nesters who no longer needed a big house. "The house had been vacant for a few months when the buyers saw the home and it didn't have a frenzy going on around it," listing agent Keith Roy says. The buyers were keen on the mountain view and the size of the lot. The sellers came down from the original $1,508,888 price after an inspection uncovered problems with the deck and drainage tiles.

The agent's take: "We were able to find our clients their ideal home without over-paying or ending up in a bidding war. Vancouver Heights is a great neighbourhood with easy access to Highway 1, downtown, and lots of shops and amenities."
