The Action: Near the main commercial strip of Donlands Avenue, multi-unit properties often sell at a quicker rate than single-family homes like this two-storey residence. Its location alongside a laneway behind those retail outlets was a strike against for some potential buyers, but 15 house hunters scheduled private showings.

What They Got: In the past year, this detached house on a 25-by-100-foot corner lot was given some new life with four remodeled bathrooms, including a master ensuite, and updated broadloom carpeting in the four bedrooms.

Entertaining areas include a lower-level recreation area, main-floor living and dining areas and a fireside family room with hardwood flooring and sliding doors to a fenced-in patio also accessible from an eat-in kitchen.

Added conveniences include a central vacuum system and two-car parking.

The Agent’s Take: “Two Plains is a great four-bedroom, upgraded home in East York with a fully finished basement and main floor family room with a stone fireplace,” agent Adrienne Farquhar said of the spacious residence.

“It is very deceiving from the outside [as it also] has a huge skylight above the spiral staircase, so there is lots of natural light.”
