DAYS ON THE MARKET Six

LISTING AGENT Andrea Morrison, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ld.

The Action: On a winding, treed street just north of High Park, Bloor Street shops and subway, this detached house was packed with people during two busy weekend open houses and over 40 parties with private showings.

The scarcity of properties in Bloor West Village prompted one of three competing buyers to push the final price over the $1-million mark.

What They Got: This more than 80-year-old residence combines original details and modern mechanics, such as a foyer outfitted with wainscoting and heated floors, a fireside living room with pot lights and French doors to the dining, and a newly remodelled kitchen with glass backsplashes, granite counters, hardwood floors and stainless steel appliances.

Casual entertaining spots include a family room addition with cathedral ceilings, pot lights and sliding doors to a stone patio and a reverse ravine at the back of the 30 by 97-foot lot, plus a lower level office and recreation room that is accessible from an entrance of the mutual driveway to the garage.

More private quarters consist of two full bathrooms and three upper bedrooms, including one with his and her closets, pot lights and arched feature windows.

The Agent’s Take: “The wood work in the house is gorgeous gumwood, the kitchen was very nicely renovated and there was a beautiful main floor family room, which is not that common in Bloor West,” says agent Andrea Morrison. “And it was one block to Bloor on a really lovely street.”
