DAYS ON THE MARKET Seven

LISTING AGENT Philip Stavrou, Right at Home Realty

The Action: In April, the market moved quickly whenever a property popped up in Bloor West Village. So this detached residence was immediately toured by 20 serious buyers, one of whom penned an offer before the weekend open house was held.

What They Got: With each owner comes a new set of improvements to this century-old brick Edwardian, which currently has a three-bedroom plan with formal and casual entertaining areas, including on a custom deck, hot tub, patio and garage on the 29-by-135-foot lot.

The living room has a formal air with a wood-burning fireplace and bow window, while the kitchen and dining area is more open and modern with an island, stainless steel appliances, marble and quartz counters, plus glass doors to the deck and a sunroom addition with a rear walkout.

The largest bedroom upstairs features a walk-in closet and one of three bathrooms. The smallest suite is in the basement off a recreation room with pot lights and above-grade windows.

The Agent’s Take: “It’s a stone’s throw from Runnymede Junior and Senior Public School, which is a great school in the area, and very close to Bloor West Village, Junction and Baby Point,” agent Philip Stavrou said.

“So, it’s a great location, a beautiful street and the renovations were done to perfection.”

For instance, this home is pretty and practical. “It’s a classic Bloor West Village property with beautiful finishes, hardwood floors throughout, a master en suite, parking, backyard space and finished basement,” Mr. Stavrou said. “It has an original bow window and the fireplace is still working … so there were a lot of original trims and details.”

Editor's Note: The original print and online versions of this story said there were "several " offers presented before the open house. In fact, there was only one offer. This online version has been corrected.
