What They Got: The previous owners extensively revamped this traditional centre-hall residence into a more modern 3,515-square-foot space with five bedrooms, six bathrooms and casual and formal entertaining areas, plus a 692-square-foot basement suite with a guest bedroom, recreation area, kitchen and separate entry. Hosting large families and affairs can be easily done in the dining room, a fireside living room with access to a rear deck and family-room addition off the kitchen with glass doors to a heated pool, as well as media room with a 108-inch screen and projector on the second floor. Four-car parking is available on a private driveway on the 50-by-135-foot lot.

The Agent’s Take: “The house was in excellent condition throughout [as the seller] had done renovations over the years that really enhanced the home, which was a very large home,” says agent Elli Davis. “It had a beautifully renovated kitchen with a large eat-in area and an open-concept family room, which opened to the backyard with a glamorous in-ground pool and lovely landscaping. It looked like a country club.”
