When this mid-century modern Strathcona house hit the market last week, it set an asking price of $1.099 million. After only five days on the market, the renovated 5BR/2BA house ended up with multiple offers on the house and subsequently under contract and sold for $1.125 million, which is a solid $26,000 above the initial asking price. Located at 879 Keefer Street, the home underwent an impressive reno in 2008, followed by an upgrade to the downstairs suite area in 2010. The classic Vancouver Special architectural style remains in tact while the inside looks like a hipster's paradise. There is a 500 square foot private patio out back and a secondary suite downstairs that rents for $1,685 per month. The original listing can be found here.
