LISTING AGENT Andrea Morrison, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.
THE ACTION: Just down the street from Mimico Creek and Bend Manor Park in Sunnylea, this detached, side-split residence had 16 inquiries for in-person tours before a strong offer was presented after eight days of promotion.
WHAT THEY GOT: On a quiet, child-friendly street, a 48-by 100-foot lot accommodates this roughly 60-year-old, brick residence with a built-in double garage and four levels of living space, including a fireside recreation room in the basement.
On the main floor, there is a fireside living room, an adjacent dining area and a traditional eat-in kitchen with a walkout to a deck and garden, which can also be accessed via a guest bedroom on the lower level.
Broadloom cushions two of the bedrooms on the top floor, while hardwood flooring is exposed in a master suite with his and her closets and one of three updated bathrooms.
THE AGENT’S TAKE: “That particular street has a few side splits, but most of Sunnylea does not have side splits, so this is a bit unusual,” says agent Andrea Morrison. “It showed really well and it had a nicely landscaped garden at the rear, a private drive and a two-car garage, which in that neighbourhood is unusual too.”
Local amenities serving the coveted community were also a highlight. “It’s a great neighbourhood with easy access to transit and great schools,” adds Ms. Morrison.
