The Action: Just steps from Sir Wilfred Laurier Collegiate, Guildwood Park and Lake Ontario, this detached residence with an attached garage drew large crowds to open houses and numerous private showings. It all came to an end when the buyer negotiated an offer close to the full list price.

What They Got: On a 110-by-55-foot corner lot, this centre hall home still bears a traditional layout with a foyer between a living room overlooking the front and back yards and a dining room connected to a rear kitchen, plus a carpeted recreation room in the basement.

The top floor has lodging for one of two bathrooms and four bedrooms with hardwood floors like the main level.

 

The Agent’s Take: “Guildwood Village is known for its quiet, family-feel tucked away close to the lake and yet not too far from the city core,” says agent Laura Golbeck. “It’s a secret gem that Toronto residents are just becoming aware of and I think will become more in demand over the years to come.”

For instance, buyers like centre hall homes like this one. “They are a little more prevalent in that area and the homes are quite a nice size,” says Ms. Golbeck.

“The sellers kept with the 1960’s classic modern style of the home with their décor and furnishings, which gave it a great vibe and made it very attractive to potential purchasers.”
