LISTING AGENT Andrea Morrison, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.
The Action: Weekend open houses were scheduled for this renovated 11/2 -storey residence in Swansea, as well as nearly two dozen showings.
What They Got: About five years ago, this 1940s residence on a 50-by-103-foot lot was completely overhauled, so it currently features three bedrooms, including a fireside master suite with entry to one of three bathrooms, and formal and causal entertaining areas, plus indoor and outdoor parking.
Behind the stone, stucco and plaster façade is a living and dining area with a classic stone fireplace and hardwood floors, as well as an open breakfast area and kitchen with limestone floors, granite counters, stainless steel appliances and double doors to a deck with a gas barbecue line, patio and grass yard.
For extra space, the basement has a carpeted bedroom, office and recreation room.
The Agent’s Take: “It was beautifully renovated,” says agent Andrea Morrison. “It was a nice sized lot with a private drive and it was easy walking distance to Bloor West Village.”
