LISTING AGENT Nutan Brown, Royal LePage West Realty Group Ltd.
The Action: The sellers of this detached residence wanted to host an open house and wait a week before reviewing offers, but one eager visitor submitted a pre-emptive offer to end the sale process.
What They Got: The past few owners oversaw different renovations to this 1920s brick house, which bears contemporary cosmetics, such as two off-white bathrooms with heated floors and a custom kitchen with a Calacatta marble island, stainless steel counters and appliances, and a glass door to the sunroom and stone patio.
Traditional remnants were intact and restored, including oak hardwood floors throughout, a foyer with wainscoting, a formal living room with a gas fireplace and plate rails around a dining room with access to a rear den.
The second floor is divided for four bedrooms, but the lower level has an open recreation area with pot lights, laminate floor and stairs to a right-of-way driveway, garage and 28-by-95-foot grounds.
The Agent’s Take: “This home would be one of the finer homes in that neighbourhood,” says agent Nutan Brown. “There are a lot of original features, including an amazing workbench in the basement utility room, which was there when the gentleman who built the home did repairs.”
The property also has several socializing spots for all ages. “It has a terrific and welcoming front porch that spans the house and a stone retaining wall,” says Ms. Brown. “It’s a quiet little street that isn’t a thoroughfare to anywhere, so it’s very family-friendly and neighbourhood-oriented.”
