It’s not often that a property includes a faux cave.

But this 4,026-square-foot, three-bedroom home on a cul-de-sac in Pemberton Heights comes with a custom hot tub with man-made grotto and covered bar.

It also has a deck overlooking a fully landscaped 6,480-square-foot property with waterfall, polished concrete floors, coffered ceilings, smart-home media technology, media room, radiant heating and gourmet kitchen. It has a view of Lion’s Gate Bridge.

The grotto at 2215 Bowser Ave. in North Vancouver.

The action:

“There was no bidding war on this property,” buying agent Brian Rybchinsky says.

“As a new listing, my buyer wanted to secure the property and offered full price, including some add-in [furniture] items,” she adds.

“The property sold so quickly because the buyer was already educated in the market and was able to recognize value right away.”

The 6,480 sq. ft. propert has polished concrete floors and coffered ceilings.

The agent’s take:

The buyer had an inspection prior to making an offer, which was the only offer on the table. “This property was so unique in design and modern in finishing, my clients knew right away it was for them,” Mr. Rybchinsky says. “In today's market when you find the right property, you cannot hesitate.”
