A 1970s era home in Port Coquitlam's Oxford Heights neighbourhood just sold for $1.75 million — a renovation and large lot may be the reasons why.
The home, located at 3816 Liverpool St., features a stunning new kitchen with updated cabinetry and lighting as well as new flooring and paint throughout, judging by the photos on Zealty.ca.
Featuring four bedrooms and four bathrooms, and a solarium, the 2,735 sq. ft. home sits on an 8,414 sq. ft. lot, which backs onto mature trees and Smiling Creek.
According to Zealty.ca, the home sold in 18 days on May 5.
The selling price was higher than the most recent assessment of $1,423,500, according to BC Assessment.
It's a typical rancher style home popular in the era, that includes a basement, with its own, new kitchen, bedrooms and living room.
Oxford Heights is in the central north side of Port Coquitlam, and border’s Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain.
It is an older, established neighbourhood with a greenbelt, creeks and walking trails.
However, it's also close to Coast Meridian Road, with access to transit and shops.
The seller's agent was Royal LePage Sterling Realty and the buyer's agent was Johnston Meier Insurance Agencies & Realty Ltd.
Meanwhile, the Liverpool home was not the most expensive to sell in recent days.
