The Action: In a residential pocket between West Deane Park and Highway 427, this detached bungalow reeled in 15 showings and a solid deal in about a month, which was a quicker pace than that set by some other homes listed nearby.

What They Got: An 87-by-143-foot corner lot provides the foundations for this roughly 60-year-old house with a classic four-bedroom plan with hardwood floors, four bathrooms, including two en suites, and an attached double garage.

Rooms for daily diversions consist of living and dining rooms, an eat-in kitchen and rear family room with a wood burning fireplace and access to a deck, along with a lower level recreation room with a wood stove, garden doors and fifth bedroom.

The Agent’s Take: “It was a fantastic raised bungalow with a walkout basement, [which is] not common,” says agent John Cameron. “[Plus] it has an awesome elevated deck off the kitchen.”

Even though the bungalow is older, like many in the area, it scored an excellent inspection report. “The buyers will likely keep the home as is, grow some roots in the neighbourhood and enjoy,” Mr. Cameron adds.
