CO-OP AGENT Patricia Houlihan, Macdonald Realty
THE ACTION: Agent Patricia Houlihan was brought in to assess the potential and value of this contemporary West Coast residence in Gleneagles after her clients did a quick tour at an open house.
WHAT THEY GOT: Various owners have renovated this two-storey residence since it was built in 1956 on nearly half an acre of elevated land overlooking the ocean.
This 2,997-square-foot house has a fireside living room, a dining room and den with a second of three wood burning fireplaces, as well as an eat-in kitchen with a pantry and sliding doors to a deck.
The main floor master suite has access to one of four bathrooms and an in-ground pool.
Private outdoor space is accessible from the second floor, where there is a family room and two bedrooms, including one visible from a loft space above.
Other practical features include a main floor laundry room, cabana and four-car parking.
A sample of local attractions include a golf course, parks, marina and shopping centre.
THE AGENT'S TAKE: "The house is on a large lot - over 18,731 square-feet - and is a well designed, West Coast contemporary [house]with great features, like vaulted ceilings, lots of windows, a nice layout and lovely outdoor space with a courtyard swimming pool," says Ms. Houlihan.
"It has a nice ocean view and is located in a great area. "
