LISTING AGENT JoAnne Gludish, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.

The Action: This stylish detached, brick bungalow on a pie-shaped lot at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in Etobicoke drew two offers.

What They Got: This over 2,700-square-foot house was assembled about 35 years ago, yet it has a modern sensibility, especially in the open living and dining area where there are vaulted ceilings, exposed brick walls, a wood burning fireplace with a Brazilian walnut veneer mantle, Brazilian hardwood floors and large picture windows.

Enclosed areas consist of three bedrooms, two remodeled bathrooms and a newer kitchen with a breakfast area and a walkout to a patio and landscaped grounds with southern exposures.

There is a separate rear entrance and floating staircase the lower level, which has a games room and a fireside recreation room with a wet bar and above grade windows.

For parking, there is an attached garage and private driveway.

The Agent’s Take: “It was not a traditional, three-bedroom bungalow. It had a real modern feel to it, like an Architectural Digest kind of house,” says agent JoAnne Gludish, who set a record high sale price for bungalows of that size.

“It wasn’t large, but it was pretty perfect with a huge, amazing basement and a very nice main floor.”
