LISTING AGENT Lena Preje, Re/Max Ultimate Realty Inc.
The Action: Down the street from Edithvale Park and the community centre, this detached property had several buyers jostling to buy it in a bidding war – a common occurrence in North York late last year.
What They Got: On the southeast corner of two residential streets is a 60-by-136-foot lot supporting this three-level, side split residence with an attached double garage and private driveway.
Through the front door is an open living area with a gas fireplace, a dining space and an eat-in kitchen.
One bedroom and one of two full bathrooms are located on the main floor. Two more bedrooms round out the upper level, which rests above a fireside recreation room and a family room with a walkout to the backyard.
The Agent’s Take: “It’s an excellent neighbourhood within walking distance to Yonge Street and great schools,” says agent Lena Preje. “[In addition], it was a wide, corner lot on a no-traffic street.”
Older homes are often targeted by builders, but this one better suited end-users. “The house was in very good condition,” Ms. Preje states. “A couple who are architects bought it, so they’re not going to knock it down like many bungalows in the area. They will keep the house and just redesign it,” Ms. Preje said.
