CO-OP AGENTS Irene Kaushansky and Philip Brown, Keller Williams Advantage Realty
The Action: Agents Irene Kaushansky and Philip Brown helped their clients put in offers for half a dozen properties in the city, but their seventh bid proved lucky as they are now the new owners of this semi-detached house on a treed street running alongside East Lynn Park on Danforth Avenue.
What They Got: The sellers of this 1930s residence installed new mechanics and cosmetics, from the porch, windows and doors to a modern bathroom amidst the three bedrooms upstairs and a kitchen opened up to breakfast and family room additions with sliding doors to a west-facing deck, shed and fenced backyard.
Primary entertaining areas include a combined living and dining room with hardwood floors, and a lower-level recreation room.
The 27-by-112-foot lot has access to a mutual driveway, but no parking.
The Agent’s Take: “It’s a desirable pocket and there is consistent competition,” says agent Irene Kaushansky.
“It’s right down from a popular park and a walk to the subway. It’s a nice street with everything going for it.”
