LISTING AGENT Lena Preje, Re/Max Ultimate Realty Inc.
The action: The area around Centerpoint Mall is established with older bungalows and new custom homes, such as this luxury residence with an attached double garage. Over a dozen showings and an open house were held over one weekend, and by the third day an offer was accepted.
What they got: Less than a decade ago, this two-storey house on a 40-by-132-foot lot was designed with upscale appointments, from a grand foyer with 20-foot ceilings and iron-clad staircase to four bedrooms with 10-foot ceilings, hardwood floors and access to one of five bathrooms.
Public quarters include a library behind French doors, an open living and dining area and a combined kitchen and fireside family room with an island, sky lit breakfast area and a walkout to a deck, south-facing patio and fenced-in yard.
There is a separate entrance to a basement recently remodelled with a large sauna and fireside media room with a Sony projector, pool table and nine-foot ceilings.
The agent’s take: “It was a huge house because it had 40-foot frontage, and it had nice finishings, was very bright and every bedroom has a bathroom,” says agent Lena Preje. “There was a chef’s dream kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, custom kitchen cabinets, many windows and a walkout to an ultra-private yard.”
Even the basement was a luxurious space.
“The sellers made their dream entertainment space for a spa-like sauna and a theatre room,” Ms. Preje adds. “It was absolutely beautiful.”
