The Action: Between public open houses and private appointments, about 30 parties visited this updated brick townhouse. Only two units were listed earlier this year, so this unit fielded two strong offers.
What They Got: A condominium community with two mid-rise buildings and a small collection of two- and three-storey townhouses is home to this multilevel unit with a built-in garage, private front driveway and rear patio accessed via a lower-level recreation room.
The main foyer has a set of stairs leading up to a fireside living room with cathedral ceilings, parquet floors and another flight of stairs to an elevated dining area and eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances.
The top floor is composed of three carpeted bedrooms, including one with entry to one of three bathrooms.
Monthly fees of $742 covers the cost of water and recent replacement of the roof and windows.
The Agent’s Take: “There are not many townhouse options in the area, but the Avenue Road/Lawrence [Avenue] area is certainly in demand,” says agent Honey Moore. “The complex was built by Cadillac Fairview some 35 years ago and remains an attractive enclave, called Bedford Glen.”
The fresh appearance of this townhouse had buyers especially happy. “Units rarely come available and this particular one was in very good condition,” Ms. Moore adds. “There was a unit sold at about the same time as ours, but it was not in as good condition and a different plan and sold for considerably less – $635,000.”
