Must be a crack house or at least the owners must be smoking crack to think that a 42 year old home on half an acre in Coquitlam that is assessed at just over $1 million should be listed for $2.7 million…  They have dropped the price to just below $2 million now but I predict that this home will be top of the weekly drop in future weeks

This rare gem is perfect for the active family…sports court for pickleball, basketball & hockey; heated inground pool, sweeping lawns for bocci ball, croquet & trampoline. Equally perfect for entertaining adult friends…9′ ceilings; solid hardwood floors; large kitchen with gentle Mediterranean cork floor, solid maple antique ivory cabinets, luxurious Italian granite counters & 6-burner gas range with 2 ovens and huge griddle; Jacuzzi, built-in BBQ, family room big enough for billiards or table tennis; tons of storage; over 5/8 acre of peaceful gardens in a private, quiet setting. AND walk to golf course! Features included – too many to list – please ask Realtor for info package.
