LISTING AGENTS Marni Lokash, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd.

The Action: While this detached house was being decluttered and staged, agent Marni Lokash alerted her Facebook followers of its impending sale this summer. Eager buyers requested a preview tour, but couldn’t physically get there, so they bought it sight unseen.

What They Got: This two-storey house with a private driveway sits on a 35- by 120-foot lot  and includes an in-ground pool it the south-facing yard backing onto Kay Gardner Beltline Park.

Custom renovations have created a living room with coffered ceilings and a rear dining and cooking area with an island, glass-paneled cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and a pair of sliding doors to the deck.

There are three bedrooms, including one with an upper terrace, four bathrooms and a one-bedroom basement in-law suite with a recreation room.

The Agent’s Take: “One of the key features is that it backs onto the Beltline and is very treed. There’s a lot of privacy and convenience being on the Beltline; you can go for runs, take your bike or walk your dog,” Ms. Lokash says.

“And another key feature on Chaplin now is it straddles two of the new LRT stations – the one at Chaplin and Eglinton and Avenue and Eglinton – and the bus stops right outside the house.”

The house itself is in top form inside and out. “The owner before had done a complete gut job and did a big open concept kitchen, living room, dining room. It was very chic,” Ms. Lokash explains. “And what’s pretty is when you look out the back, it had the pool.”
