The history

The house was built in 1999 by Vancouver architect Farouk Noormohamed for a couple who, the year before, had bought the bungalow that originally stood on this lot. They lived here for almost two decades before deciding to downsize.

The fate

The buyers are a couple who like the home’s design enough that they plan to keep it the way it is. They have two kids, so the property’s close proximity to two public schools is an added benefit.

The sale

The house was listed in September for $2,888,000 and originally sold for $2,530,000. But then the buyer backed out of the purchase. The house was re-listed in November. Although the sellers ended up accepting an offer almost $700,000 under their initial ask, the agent says the sale price is still in line with neighbourhood norms.
