LISTING AGENTS Tanya Sidorova and Michael Inwood, Sutton Group Realty Systems Inc.
The Action: On a 29- by 126-foot lot sloping toward a ravine, this detached, two-storey residence was a hive of activity with more than 40 buyers with private showings and 50 visitors at two open houses.
What They Got: More than a decade ago, this 80-year-old house was given a three-storey addition across the rear, so it now has 2,090 square feet of living space, plus a 990 square-foot basement apartment with one bedroom, one bathroom, a living area with kitchen facilities and a dining space by the rear entrance.
A fireside living room and central family room are in the original section of the main floor, while the kitchen and dining area are newer spaces with stainless steel appliances, granite island and sliding balcony doors.
The remodelled master suite now occupies a third of the second floor with a walk-in closet and three-piece bathroom.
There is front parking pad, but the property is just a short walk from a subway station, library, shops, schools and High Park.
The Agent’s Take: “It’s a four-bedroom and four-bathroom [house]with a separate basement apartment, which is rare,” says agent Michael Inwood. “The backyard and the ravine was a big selling future.”
