Cute Coquitlam character homes are for sale — but they don't come cheap

Coquitlam is in transition and many older homes are for sale as possible building lots.

Coquitlam has some charming homes that date back to the 1930s, '40s and '50s.

However, they typically sit on large lots, which make them costly to purchase.

Still, they can be a good investment and possibly offer subdivision or land assembly options as southwest Coquitlam undergoes a major transformation.

Here are some cute houses currently for sale on, depending on your budget, as of Friday (Jan. 13):

Blue three-bedroom charmer

  • $1.275 million (first photo in gallery)

Located at 1780 Austin Ave., in Central Coquitlam, this house was built in 1930 and probably has a lot of stories to tell.

The lot is huge, at over 8,500 sq. ft., while the 2,377 sq-ft. home has three bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Virtual open houses are scheduled to take place between 2 and 4 p.m. today (Jan. 14) and tomorrow (Jan. 15).

The property is listed by Elise Lambert of RE/MAX Select Realty.

Stuccoed family home

  • $2.049 million (second photo in gallery)

Located at 651 Rochester Ave., this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home offers dormer windows and an expansive 14,025 sq-ft. lot with mature trees.

However, the 1940's era residence is being marketed as a building opportunity.

Current living space is 2,152 sq. ft., and the home includes upgrades, according to the listing by Kyle Rademaker of Royal LePage Sterling Realty.

1950s character house

  • $2,500,000 (third photo in gallery)

Located at 717 Dogwood St., this small home has only one bedroom and one bathroom at a size of 1,040 sq. ft.

However, it sits on an 8,866 sq-ft. lot and is being marketed to builders.

Constructed in 1955, the near 70-year-old home was built at a time when lots were considered large in Coquitlam.

Listed by Jaklin Dalir of Keller Williams Elite Realty, the property is reportedly zoned for townhomes at medium density with possible potential for a multi-storey building.
