Lovely Abode Priced to Sell

You can’t help but sense the historical presence of Burkeville. It was originally developed in 1943 by the Federal Government to provide housing for Boeing plant workers.  The houses were later sold by Boeing to returning veterans from the war. The streets, with aeronautical themed names, are lined with original homes and new builds that have thoughtfully kept with the character of the village. The community is sandwiched between the beautiful Burkeville Neighbourhood Park and Sea Island Elementary School; both only a short walk from all 328 homes. Burkeville is serviced by its own fire hall and maintains one of the lowest crime rates in the Lower Mainland.

2200 Anson is one of the original character homes. The master bedroom, the penhouse suite, is the most unique. The angled ceiling and large wall of windows overlooking the green backyard gives the home a romantic cabin feel. The master room also comes equipped with a large walk-in closet, an extended hidden storage area and an ensuite with a bright skylight.

Downstairs, the living room, two bedrooms and den are large and provide space for a variety of furniture arrangements. The kitchen is open and has a adjoining area that could be either a kitchen nook or a home office.

The home is great for a young family looking to raise their children in a truly connected community, but the location and lot size would also tweak the interest of investors looking to build a new single-family dwelling.
