Once upon a time a developer had a great idea to place “Mom” into one of the many new “affordable” houses he building in Chilliwack. So, he looked at the all the lots and picked one that was deeper than others. This lot had a view of the breathtaking Mount Cheam. This lot had a park next to it. This lot was treed so that a cooling shade would be provided in the summer. Once it was fenced he thought - she will like this lot. He also deliberated hard on what sort of house mother would like. She wasn’t getting any younger. A rancher with everything on one floor seemed to be the best fit.
She would want some extras, not that she was fussy she just liked nice things, so into the expensive oak cabinets he had the cabinet people built an ingenious spice rack and place a wall oven and dishwasher. Into the kitchen island a range/grill top unit with a down draft fan was built. The developer could imagine himself sitting on a bar stool drinking coffee and eating Mum’s cookies while she puttered away.

For a bit more style, after all it was his mother, he added vaulted ceilings they made her home just feel larger and provided wonderful wall space for photographs of her family. He thought a 2’x3’ picture of him would make a perfect house warming gift for this perfect house. And so this 2 bedroom 1232 square foot house was built.
Sadly, his mother ran off with a carpet layer and they decided to cruise around the world instead. The tale happily does not end there.
New people moved in and they improved the home with tile, hardwood, laminate and carpet. Fresh paint added zest to the interior and regular maintenance insured this house remains fit for “mother”. This fable may not be 100% true but the property is – so let’s have a look. This property is located at 45493 Meadowbrook Drive, Chilliwack B.C. and has just been listed for $259,900. Look for it soon to appear on the Multiple Listing Service TM of Chilliwack BC or give me a call.
