From Poco Special to Modern Farmhouse: Before + After

Like many young families, our clients were looking for a larger space to grow their family. Looking for a detached home that checks all of the boxes is a challenging task, but being able to look beyond the cosmetics can land you a fantastic opportunity.

That’s exactly what our clients got when they purchased this 1970’s built Lincoln Park home. When they moved in three years ago, there were many aspects of the home that were dated and closed off, but as we toured various homes in the area, we could really see the potential shine through this particular home.

They decided to go for it, and didn’t waste any time getting started on the renovations! This family transformed this ‘Port Coquitlam Special’ into a bright, modern farmhouse with no detail spared. We watched them pour endless hours of planning and work into this home and the results were simply beautiful. It really goes to show how much benefit you can receive from a little sweat equity when you aren’t afraid to go for it!

The family very much enjoyed living in this dreamy space, until it was time for a new project! So, once we got the home listed for sale, over 100 people showed up to see this spectacular transformation on the first day of showings. After only 6 days on the market, this home sold for FULL price, which was a record sale for that year in the neighbourhood. A very special thank you to our wonderful sellers for all of their hard work and attention to detail + design. This home was an absolute pleasure to sell.
