LISTING AND CO-OP AGENTS Adrienne, Tasi and Norm Farquhar, Keller Williams Neighbourhood Realty

The Action: In the Humber Valley Village community, many residences require about 35 days of market exposure to find the right buyer, but this new house took half that time after interested neighbours attended an open house.

What They Got: This four-year-old structure is family-friendly with four bedrooms, a lower level guest room and casual entertaining area with stylish hardwood and porcelain floors and contrasting black, grey and white finishes, as well as laundry facilities upstairs and interior access to a double garage.

Public quarters are broken down into open living and dining rooms and a fireside family room off an eat-in kitchen with access to a butler’s pantry, deck and hot tub overlooking the private 46-by-135-foot grounds. Plus, there is a recreation room and custom glass-enclosed gym in the basement.

The master suite was lavishly appointed his and her closets and a six-piece bathroom – the largest of four –with an oversized shower and freestanding tub.

The Agent’s Take: “The buyers already lived in the neighbourhood, so this home kept their kids at the same school, and it was a move-up in the size of the home,” says Adrienne Farquhar. “Many new homes are being built in this pocket, but this home in particular was more contemporary than most.”

Furthermore, attention was given to recreation spaces inside and out. “This gym was definitely unique and top quality,” Ms. Farquhar adds. “It has a gorgeous backyard with really nice decking and built-in hot tub, plus space for kids’ play.”
