An end-unit townhouse in Coquitlam's Worthing Green complex spent only four days on the market before it was snatched up by an eager buyer. The Vancouver Sun reports that the recently built four-bedroom home is spacious and has 2,529-square-feet of living space. 
Located at 1751 Paddock Drive, Coquitlam, Vancouver, the home sold for $537,000 - just under the $539,000 listing price. What helped make this property so highly prized by potential homebuyers was the number of high-quality features and amenities. According to the news source, the property has been outfitted with modern furnishings like hardwood floors, a tiled entry way, stainless steel appliances and an eat-in kitchen. 
While the cosmetic finishes are divine, the house features a number of mechanical and utility upgrades that really make the property shine. According to the news source, the house has been outfitted with radiant floor heating. The eco-friendly utility option allows a homeowner to reduce his or her heating bills by a significant amount. Radiant floor heating can operate off renewable or traditional energy sources and more efficiently than other heat transfer systems like radiators, vents or base board heating. In addition, because it uses energy more efficiently, a homeowner can actually set the temperature on the thermostat a few degrees below what it would be with another system and feel just as warm.
The quality of radiant floor heating can fill a home with relaxing warmth. This, in addition to the other many fine features of the house, is why potential homebuyers were eager to snatch up this property as soon as it hit the market. Especially in the harsh Canadian winters found in Vancouver, the radiant floor heating system is ideal.
