LISTING AND CO-OP AGENT JoAnne Gludish, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.
The Action: This detached, brick house collected multiple offers from Etobicoke locals and shoppers from neighbouring cities in GTA West.
What They Got: In the last three years, this mid-1960s residence became larger and more lavish with a new family room constructed with an electric fireplace, vaulted ceilings and entry to the garage and kitchen, which was also redressed with granite, glass and stainless steel finishes, as well as hardwood floors and crown mouldings like the living and dining areas.
The basement was refinished with a floor-to-ceiling gas fireplace in the recreation room and a laundry area with heated floors and a patio door.
Upstairs, there are four bedrooms, including one with entry to the smallest of three updated bathrooms.
The Agent’s Take: “It was an extremely attractive, updated home,” agent JoAnne Gludish said. “There was a breezeway between the garage and the house that they converted into a family room, which worked really well.”
Buyers were also a fan of the setting of the 48- by 116-foot corner lot. “It’s in Richmond Gardens, which is a planned community, so it’s truly a residential area, but well located to the highway and good shopping,” Ms. Gludish said.. “It only has a side yard – not a backyard – but it was a very pretty side yard.”
