LISTING AGENT Anita Merlo, Bosley Real Estate Ltd.

The Action: Just around the corner from Pape subway station, this semi-detached house was picked up on the radar of over a dozen house hunters who requested a showing on the first day it was listed for sale. There was no offer hold-off date, and one visitor presented the sellers with their bid – and were approved that same day.

What They Got: This compact two-bedroom house was built on a 12-by-144-foot lot circa 1930, so previous owners modernized the mechanics and the four-piece bathroom on the second floor, opened up the living and dining areas and refurbished the kitchen with slate floors, stainless steel appliances and a door to the deck, patio, fenced garden and laneway parking.

Secondary entertaining spaces include a front sunroom and a lower-level recreation room with a walkout.

The Agent’s Take: “It’s very small, very cute and charming,” says agent Anita Merlo. “[The renovations] were done perfectly.” Though this property was of a smaller stature than most, many buyers were just eager for an opportunity to move into the area. “It’s a great location, just a three-minute minutes stroll to the Danforth,” Ms. Merlo said. “It had parking in a prime location, which is a selling feature.”
