OPPORTUNITY TO SUBDIVIDE AWAITS BUYER OF LARGE KERRISDALE PROPERTY

Vancouver

2967 West 43rd

Type: detached, 3 bed, 2 bath

Size: 2,447 sq. ft.

BC Assessment, July, 2009: $1.801 million

Listed for: $2.75 million

Sold for: $2.762 million

Sold on: March 3

Days on market: 16

Listing agent: Ainslie Sadler at Macdonald Realty

Buyers agent: Angel Wang at Royal Pacific Realty

The big sell: Proving that land is king, this property is billed as a great development opportunity to subdivide the 74-by-134-foot lot into two 37-foot wide parcels and build two luxury homes of 3,450 square feet each. Little wonder it commanded a sale price of almost $1 million over the assessment value. Already in existence is a pretty, character home, but the more important aspect is the location in prime Kerrisdale territory, close to shops and the popular schools of Crofton House, St. George's and Point Grey secondary school.

The big sell: This is a big "Vancouver Special" home on a 43-by-132-foot lot in the prestigious Southlands/Kerrisdale neighbourhood. The house contains two separate suites with three bedrooms in the upper unit and two in the lower, each with its own laundry, storage, parking and security. Since the property was constructed in 1979, the kitchens on both floors have been updated and new carpets installed; it also boasts open-plan living and dining rooms, fireplaces, hardwood floors and a rear deck. According to listing agent Bob Bracken, different possibilities exist for its use, among them keeping it as an investment revenue property or for two families to occupy it in a co-ownership situation. Great location close to the shops at the Dunbar end of 41st Avenue.
