West Vancouver Real Estate Update
Out with the Old – Back in with the old...........There are 12 new listings in West Vancouver today, ranging in price from $675,000 to $10,800,000. 90% of these homes were on the market last year and did not sell. Some of which have come back on the market at an even higher price.
We start off with a family Friendly neighbourhood - Horseshoe Bay. A 2254 sq ft craftsman style half duplex with 4 bedrooms and 4 baths. 2 Blocks from the beach and one block from Trolls where you will find the best fish & Chips in British Columbia. Priced at $829,000 (that’s for the house not the fish & Chips!)
Westport Road in Eagle Harbour is back on the market again. The for sale sign here is up and down like a fiddlers elbow. For the love of God, put it for sale and stick with it. A few nice upgrades, but honestly the inherent things that were wrong in 2011 are still wrong in 2012. Priced at $1,358,000 – Worth a drive by, but that’s about it.
Although this next home is slated as Ambelside, it is on the cusp of Sentinel Hill. The Ambelside Revitalization project has worked wonders for this area. The astro turf playing fields etc are great for the kids. This home was on the market last year (lower price) and I actually really like the house, there is good value here. Although the whole Feng shui of it all may not work for many of our Chinese buyers. Walking distance to Park Royal Shopping Centre, Ambleside Beach and Ridgeview Elementary School. Offered at $1,968,000.
Blink Bonnie Road in Gleneagles (who wouldn’t want an address like this?) A rare property consisting of two legal lots and 195 ft of water frontage. Expansive 200 degree views to Bowen Island, Vancouver Island, Lighthouse Park, UBC and beyond. It has two separate driveways, an Oceanside pool and 465 sq ft cabana and the existing 4400 sq ft home straddles the two lots. The house could be renovated, but the value of this property is the land. Build your dream home. Priced at $10,800,000 (we could also do a ‘layaway plan’ for those interested!)
