In a prime location in West Dunbar, close to top schools and Pacific Spirit Park, is this six-bedroom family home on a 42-by-122-foot lot. The 1939-built home is unassuming from the outside but inside there is lovely detailing such as inlaid oak floors, coved ceilings and leaded hexagonal windows. Some of the interior has been renovated but most has not. However, having sold for $131K over asking after a week on the market, it seems likely the buyer is eyeing this desirable RS5-zoned lot for its redevelopment potential.
