The Action: This 2 1/2-storey, semi-detached house at the north end of Eglinton Park had more than 100 visitors, including many who actually lined up to get into the open house tour. Almost a dozen offers were made, with the winner adding $406,017 to the $1.195-million list price.
What They Got: In recent years, this roughly century-old house on a 26-by-119-foot lot was expanded with a two-storey addition and extensively renovated with upgraded heating and cooling systems, four designer bathrooms and a custom kitchen with Caesarstone slabs, Miele appliances and full height cabinetry.
The main floor is completely modern with clear sightlines between the living and dining areas and family room with a deck, plus a custom glass staircase to four bedrooms upstairs and guest and recreation rooms in the 855-square-foot basement.
The Agent’s Take: “The location of the home is quite unique across the park, which is convenient,” agent Boris Kholodov says. “You can walk to the subway and it’s in the Allenby school district, which is a very desirable.”
This 2,010-square-foot house also has an ideal figure and form. “It’s is a semi-detached house, but it is a wider semi,” Mr. Kholodov adds.
“It had undergone a fantastic renovation done exactly in the style that’s in demand and offers the families that seek properties in the neighbourhood, all the features they want and amount of space they need.”
