The action: The unit was listed in March for $1.668-million and sold a week later. The seller received two offers. They had purchased the property from the developer in 2007, for $700,000.
What they got: The Mount Pleasant half-duplex is near Main Street, close to parks and shops. The 1,542-square-foot modern unit has three bedrooms, two full baths and a den that could be a fourth bedroom.
It has been updated with hardwood flooring upstairs, a renovated second bathroom, new Miele appliances and quartz counters. The upper floor has a vaulted ceiling and mountain views. It has a landscaped yard, fencing and a single-car garage.
The agent’s take: “Although it was a high-end duplex and above the average price of a duplex in East Van, the home featured unique architectural design both inside and outside, along with a central location, and tasteful updates throughout,” Mr. Albrighton says.
The average price for a duplex in the area is about $1.35 million, he says.
