LISTING AGENT Andrea Morrison, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.
The Action: Agent Andrea Morrison was prepared to review offers for this brick and stone residence in the Humber Valley only after several days of exposure. But two out of the seven visitors immediately tried to evade potential rivals with strong proposals, including one presenting $101,000 on top of the list price.
What They Got: This more than 30-year-old house with a double garage rests on a 50- by 115-foot lot that fronts onto a tree-lined street and backs onto the 15th hole of St. George’s golf course.
The natural surroundings are visible from large windows in the living and dining rooms, a panelled family room with a brick, wood burning fireplace, as well as a south-facing deck and patio off an updated eat-in kitchen and lower level recreation room respectively.
A winding staircase leads to three bedrooms and a master suite with a walk-in closet and one of four bathrooms.
The Agent’s Take: “This is a really good house, beautifully maintained, and it backs onto a golf course, which is lovely,” Ms. Morrison said. “In this pocket, less than 15 or 20 per cent of the house are on the golf course, so they don’t come up that often.”
