3771 Lam Dr., Rich­mond

Type: Four-bed­room, three-bath­room de­tached Size: 2,345 square feet B.C. as­sess­ment, 2015: $1,224,000 Listed for: $1,280,000 Sold for: $1,240,000 Sold on: June 26 Days on mar­ket: 80 List­ing agent: Don­ald Lee at Amex Broad­way West Realty Buy­ers agent: Bryan Yan at Re­gent Park Realty The big sell: This house was built in Rich­mond’s Terra Nova neigh­bour­hood in 2003. Ac­cord­ing to the City of Rich­mond’s web­site, this area in the north­west cor­ner of Lulu Is­land is steeped in agri­cul­tural and fish­ing history and can be traced to the Musqueam peo­ple, as well as mi­grants from the Mar­itimes, who de­vel­oped one of the re­gion’s ear­li­est set­tle­ments — no doubt drawn by a tract of land bor­dered on two sides by wa­ter.

This two-storey house of­fers spa­cious rooms with vaulted ceil­ings in the kitchen and fam­ily room. There are hard­wood floors, match­ing wood-fronted cab­i­nets and stain­less-steel ap­pli­ances in the kitchen, a built-in wine rack in the cen­tre is­land, pen­dant light­ing, and built-in shelv­ing flank­ing two gas fire­places. All four bed­rooms are up­stairs, and the master has a five-piece en­suite bath­room. The gar­den — both front and back — has been beau­ti­fully main­tained, and an ar­bour on the pa­tio to the rear pro­vides a shady awning over a seat­ing area.

This three-bed­room-plus-den apart­ment takes full ad­van­tage, with un­ob­structed views of the ocean, Stan­ley Park and the moun­tains from a po­si­tion en­com­pass­ing the en­tire front half of the build­ing. The res­i­dence has more than 3,000 square feet, two en­ter­tain­ment­sized pa­tios and a master suite in a sep­a­rate wing. An of­fice cur­rently pro­vides a fourth bed­room, and there is plenty of stor­age. List­ing agent Bev­er­ley Knif­fen says the sellers bought the home when it was built in 2004, and have taste­fully up­graded it over the years. The unit comes with two park­ing stalls, and res­i­dents have use of ameni­ties that in­clude 24-hour concierge, a pool, steam room, theatre and gym. The monthly main­te­nance fee is $1,575.76.
