DAYS ON THE MARKET Two

LISTING AGENT Elli Davis, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.

The Action: Just one street east of shops and eateries along Avenue Road, this Bedford Park residence with a mutual driveway was staged to enhance its appearance for photographs, private showings and an open house event. The open house was derailed after a pre-emptive offer set off a two-way bidding war at the end of January.

What They Got: This brick residence on a fenced 26-by-105-foot lot has classic features throughout, such as a front living room with a wood-burning fireplace and a formal dining room with French doors to a south-facing deck, which is also accessible from an updated galley kitchen.

Full bathrooms serve three bedrooms and a recreation room on the upper and lower levels respectively.

The Agent’s Take: “The proximity to Avenue Road was very important,” agent Elli Davis says. “The area is so sought after and there were very few listings, so that equals a very busy market.”

Older homes such asthis are solid choices for many buyers. “It was a typical two-storey, but it showed very well. It had a renovated kitchen, washrooms and nice backyard,” Ms. Davis states. “So it had the older charm and newer interior, which appealed to many people.”
