LISTING AGENT Paul Nusca, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.
The Action: On a maturely treed, winding street in the Princess Gardens community, few properties came up for sale in the past year or two. So when this detached bungalow was listed, there were 1,100 hits on the virtual tour and 40 in-person visits. With two rival offers were submitted, so it sold for just over the asking price.
What They Got: Likely built in the 1960s, this brick residence has a family-friendly plan with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and wood burning fireplaces in the living room off the foyer and lower level recreation room.
Al fresco dining can be done on the private patio or the deck, which are accessible from both the dining area and modernized eat-in kitchen with granite counters, pot lights and original hardwood floors that flow throughout.
Above grade windows illuminate the basement, where there is a guest bedroom, office, workshop and laundry room.
An attached double garage rounds out the 60-by-120-foot grounds.
The Agent’s Take: “It’s one of the nicer streets, pretty picturesque with lots of trees,” says agent Paul Nusca. “It had a west-facing lot, which is kind of premium.”
While the property is largely original, the mechanics were replaced, among other things. “It’s been updated with a newer kitchen … a newer roof ten years ago, and a furnace,” adds Mr. Nusca.
