LISTING AGENT Lucais Shepherd, Right at Home Realty Inc.
The Action: This semi-detached house fronts onto Bathurst Street, which suited a large group of buyers, from large families to entrepreneurs. As a result, offers came from nearly every visitor, but the most tempting proposal came from one doling out a $105,000 premium.
What They Got: This century-old house is set up on a 17-by 84-foot corner lot with two living spaces updated with new oak parquet floors, wiring and roof, plus a basement with one of three bathrooms.
There are 10-foot ceilings on the main floor, where there is one bedroom, the living and dining areas and a kitchen with access to a southwest-facing deck, garden and private driveway.
The second floor could double as a three-bedroom suite with a second kitchen.
The Agent’s Take: “There is a lot of development happening on Bathurst from King to St. Clair,” agent Lucais Shepherd said. “So people were looking at that property for a lot of different reasons, for commercial uses, residential uses and future development ambitions.”
However, this home was a rare sight for families in particular. “Corner lots are not easy to come by and this was on the south-facing corner of Wolesley and Bathurst, so it got a lot of sunlight in the backyard … and south side of the house,” Mr. Shepherd said. “If somebody makes this a single family home, it’s a four-bedroom house, which in Toronto terms downtown, is big.”
