The Action: This midtown residence on a 24-foot-wide lot near Eglinton Park received over 100 open house visitors. At any time, offers could be registered, so three buyers move quickly to make a bid, including one adding $101,000 to the list price.

What They Got: Over a decade ago, this more than 80-year-old house was ultimately rebuilt inside out, from the new stucco façade and picture windows to a more open 1,704-square-foot plan with updated operating systems.

The front foyer has clear sightlines of the fireside living and dining room, central kitchen and a rear family room with sky-lit, vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors and two walkouts to the fenced yard and parking.

At the top of the staircase lies an open den with entry to one of three bathrooms and three bedrooms, including a master suite with a front balcony.

The 852-square-foot basement contains a guest bedroom and recreation room with laminate floors and above grade windows.

The Agent’s Take: “It was a unique property,” says agent Kevin Crigger.

“The property was substantially renovated, it has an incredible sense of natural light with tons of windows, and they had opened up the entire main floor, so it was one wide open space, which is so different from what’s there. A lot are traditional homes with very small rooms throughout.”
